Florals + Paris Are Always A Perfect Pair

I’m downright giddy with glee today. Not only do we have pretty pics from Greg Finck but the center of his attention? The lovely face behind Myrtle et Olive and her adorable hubby as they explored Paris in honor of their anniversary. From getting ready and prepping her florals, to strolling the streets, image after image gives me the best kind of butterflies. See them all right this way!

From the Bride… My husband, Charles, gave me one of my most treasured anniversary presents, a photo shoot with Greg Finck in my favorite city, Paris. Charles and I met during our University years. Charles took a bold move to drop out of University to pursue his entrepreneurial dream and he encouraged me start my own business three years ago. I took a leap of faith and started Myrtle et Olive Floral and Events, now working as Myrtle’s Artistic Director and Lead Florist. This year marks our 2nd year wedding anniversary, but more importantly, our 10th year being together.

Greg Finck is one of my favorite fine art photographers who is so immensely talented and calming to be with. It was such a memorable and fun experience designing this photoshoot with him. Our great friend Karla from Written Word Calligraphy gifted us with our wedding vows in her handwritten calligraphy on precious hand-made paper. It is something we treasure so dearly and brought together with us for this shoot along with my gold amber vintage ring from my vintage ring collection.

Greg captured the entire journey of our anniversary session from a boudoir session of me getting ready in the refine Windsor Robe from The Lace Atelier, putting together the final touches of my overgrown, pastel bouquet, to Charles and I wondering the quiet, immensely charming street of Paris with the sight of the Eiffel Tower. Our anniversary is captured so wonderfully by Greg and we are so grateful to relive our moments through tangibles! They are such beautiful memories that we will cherish for a lifetime.

A Glamorous Wedding Inspiration in the City of Lights

There’s something about Paris that pulls at our heart strings and thankfully Loli Events and Sylvie Gil Photography agree. Creating and capturing beauty in the city of lights, this is one imaculate inspiration that you’re sure to go mad(eleine) for. See it all in The Vault!

From Loli EventsParis overflows with historical monuments and epic love stories. That is why the city of lights attracts couples from all around the world every year to celebrate love!

One of our favorite venues is the beautiful Pavillon de Musique de la Comtesse du Barry. Located right outside Paris, it is the perfect combination of intimate gardens and historical interiors. And wait until you read about the love story behind it…

After the passing of his latest wife, the King Louis XV was introduced to Jeanne, the countess of Barry and fell in love with her kindness, beauty and generosity. Jeanne received a refined education that awakened her to the Fine Arts and music. Tall and elegant, this lovely blond with a clear complexion and sparkling blue eyes full of intelligence and fineness was what we call, here at Loli Events, our kind of lady!

In 1769, Louis XV offered Jeanne the Pavillon des Eaux in Louveciennes (Luciennes at that time). Finding it a little too small for her receptions, the countess of Barry easily obtained from her madly-in-love King, the authorization to construct a little pavillon so she could decently receive her guests. The plans were entrusted to a young architect, Claude-Nicolas Ledoux.

Keeping in mind Jeanne’s love for receptions, we envisioned this styled shoot to have a romantic touch and an iconic Parisian fashion feel for a lovely and intimate dinner.

With her expert eye, the very talented Sylvie Gil captured all the details that make this venue so special. Meanwhile, the Lily Paloma team worked their magic once again to create an amazing composition that brought a natural and summery atmosphere in the room.

With the help of Vaisselle Vintage rentals and the couture gowns from Loho Bride, we were able to capture a perfect mix of luxurious antique-chic vibes.

This is how we imagined a modern Jeanne, in her Pavillon, throwing a private dinner on a very special summer day.
