Glamorous Destination Wedding in Paris

New Year’s Eve calls for a little dose of glitz and glamour, and this bride’s Amanda Wakeley gown most certainly hits the mark. It’s the ultimate frock for a Parisian “I do,” and thanks to the talented Mon Plus Beau Jour, the whole day (rain and all!) was a dream brought to life. Mademoiselle Fiona captured the magic, and it’s all sitting right over here.

From Mademoiselle Fiona Wedding Photography… Gillian+Josh are from Canada and gathered their loved ones in Paris for a lovely, stylish, intimate wedding. They had planned an outdoor ceremony in a little garden tucked away in Le Marais, but it poured pretty much the entire day. Thankfully they had the right attitude and the right planner, and no bad weather could put a damper on the festivities. The ceremony was moved to a beautiful apartment, and although we weren’t able to go to all our originally planned locations, sometimes the impromptu ones are the most fun.

From The Bride… Growing up I never had a vision for my dream wedding. It was not until Josh proposed to me in our apartment after a Saturday night couples session of hot yoga that the wheels began to turn. We knew we wanted a small intimate wedding and realized a destination wedding would accomplish just that.

We went through a list of potential destinations and when Paris came up it just made perfect sense. Paris is always a good idea. We wanted to create an atmosphere for our day that was simple, understated, elegant, and unstuffy, and Verjus provided just that. Although we had never been to Verjus, we instantly fell in love with its photos online as it reminded us of our favorite restaurant in Toronto. Being from Canada we knew we would need some help with the planning.

After speaking with Marie-Emilie from Mon Plus Beau Jour it immediately became clear she was the person for the task. She made the process simple, seamless, and fun. Her most outstanding recommendation to use Mademoiselle Fiona for our photos was incredibly on point. The ceremony in our Paris rental apartment could not have been any more perfect. With a live acoustic rendition of Skinny Love to walk down a rose petal aisle, with all of the people we love and each other- it was everything. For the reception I chose peonies in simple vases for their connection to my grandmother. She grew countless peonies at her nursery when I was a kid. Fiona captured the overwhelming love shared with our family and friends and the absolute joy had by all.

We will never forget that rainy day in Paris. It has left an indelible mark in our hearts and tremendous fond memories will stay with us forever.

Romantic Wedding Inspiration Shoot in Paris

I am an absolute francophile. And Paris? Well, it’s my favorite place in the whole wide world. Loren Routhier’s images are proof that with a glittering Adrianna Papell  gown and sparkling Jimmy Choo shoes even a dreary day in Paris is utterly romantic. I can honestly say that after peeking through the gallery, I will actively be planning my return to the City of Lights.

From Loren RouthierA styled shoot in the City of Lights full of sparkles, metallics and gold! Our gorgeous model, Liz, was styled elegantly in an Adrianna Papell gown that was a throwback to 1920′s art deco Parisian chic. We accessorized her with an ivory fur stole by Adrienne Landau, Givenchy earrings and a gorgeous pair of sparkly Jimmy Choos. Our handsome groom, Jared, wore a classic black suit from H&M. The table settings and glassware were all vintage from Paris. In true Parisian form, we staved off the rain long enough to get dramatic shots of the Eiffel Tower and even managed to catch a brief ray of sunshine before the first drops fell from the sky. We shot all around Paris and took in the iconic sites such as the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame.

Springtime in Paris Elopement

It almost goes without saying that when you combine one of the most beautiful places in the world with the lens of Le Secret D’Audrey, the video skills of Duncan Wolfe, and the coordination of Luxe Paris Events you will have one of the most beautiful weddings ever. Not to mention when it’s topped off with a couple so in love that every single image will leave you believing in fairytale endings. Happy swooning!

From Luxe Paris EventsOur first meeting it was obvious that Brian and Bridget were a very special couple. Their love shines brighter than the Tour Eiffel at night and working with them for this special moment was truly a breeze. Their appreciation of my work and their trust that I would bring it all together really made working with them a pleasure. I find the Musee Rodin to be one of the most magical monuments Paris has to offer. It offers ornate “classic french” details but remains simplistically beautiful. The chateau (once the home of the artist Rodin) paired with the expansive garden, home to Rodin’s many sculptures and fountains, it offers a fabulous backdrop in the center of Paris that feels like you are 100s of miles away in the countryside. The special and romantic nature of the venue, for me, reflected perfectly the amazing couple that Brian and Bridget are. After their ceremony they were whisked away in a mint colored vintage car with their photographer for a fabulous picture taking adventure before returning to a private apartment on rive gauche for dinner prepared by a private chef. It was romantic, simplistic but fabulous and the perfect little get a way for the elopement of the perfect couple.
