April Showers Bring (Parisian) May Flowers

Even on the wettest gray day, Paris still manages to take our breath away. Take this elegant inspiration captured by Lara Lam Photography as proof. Drenched in elegance and irresistible Seniman Calligraphy, we’ve got every minute of magic waiting for you in The Vault!

From Luxe Paris EventsWe all know what they say about Spring time in Paris…What few know is how unpredictable the weather can be. Maybe it is bright and sunny or perhaps grey and gloomy but Paris is in fact always a good idea. When planning a Paris wedding or elopement in the early months of spring make sure you bring along an umbrella. While its practical it also provides a chic vintage inspired accessory that you might just actually need. This shoot was all about sharing the experience of an elopement in Paris with your “better half;” from getting ready through the photo tour after your ceremony and taking a stroll through the city while dressed to your wedding day “nines.” No first looks, no planned photos just capturing your love but with the unmistakable style that is the city of love behind it all. This city is an explosion of history, beauty and above all else details…a simple lamp post, an old cathedral or a sculpture where you least expect it.

This Inspiration Shoot Proves Paris is Always a Good Idea — Even in the Winter

As far as I’m concerned, winter is the worst. But through the lens of Catherine O’Hara and with a little help from my soulmate city, Paris, this inspiration session is making winter seem not only bearable, but also completely beautiful. Thanks to two gorgeous wedding dresses, stunning florals and details designed by Avec Weddings and Events, The Vault is full of everything you need to make your day a little prettier!

From Avec Weddings and EventsThe Paris sky in winter has a romantic soft grey hue. Set against the dusty blue rooftops and ivory building façades, this hue adds to the natural beauty and sophistication that comes with having a winter wedding in Paris.

This was the inspiration. To bring out the beauty of an intimate Paris winter elopement through warm candlelight, elegant florals and sophisticated design. To get a glimpse of a couple enjoying a romantic stroll in a jardin or locked in a private embrace in a cozy Haussmannian apartment. We chose to incorporate shades of Paris in winter; soft grey, dusty blue, pale ivory and blush pink.

The delicate lace wedding invitation suite provided by Ever After Press perfectly embraced the theme of the shoot. “Je t’aime, je t’adore, j’aime que la vie est belle, ton coeur est a moi, mon coeur est a toi” meaning “I love you, I adore you, I love that life is beautiful, your heart is mine, my heart is yours”.

The gorgeous wedding cake by the one and only Bertie’s CupCakery captured essence of a winter wedding in Paris. The incorporation of the lace detailing on the cake to the invitation suite is in a word exquisite. It truly was the star of the show.

For the table décor, hard marble plates were mixed with warm rose gold flatware and pale pink silk ribbon to add dimension to the design; a combination of hard and soft materials, cool and warm tones. The etched design swirl in the wine and champagne glasses adds a bit of whimsy to remind us that we are grabbing inspiration from the cool winter wind.

Let’s talk about the breathtaking blush wedding gowns from Zahavit Tshuba. Billowing trains of tulle, soft beading detail, jaw dropping pearl detail on the back of one of the dresses… need I go on? They were the perfect combination of sensual romance meets classical sophistication. Romantic, refined hair styling and soft, natural make up by Honorine Makeup Studios highlighted the grace in the inspiration.

The elegant floral design by Floraison made this shoot come to life. Loose florals of ranunculus, poppy, eucalyptus and jasmine creeping softly down the side of the fireplace with soft candle light beside creates a lovely wedding ceremony backdrop and is enough to make you melt. The bouquets of ranunculus, poppy, eucalyptus, jasmine and Christmas roses wrapped in flowing silk ribbons were absolutely swoon worthy.

All of this was beautifully captured by Catherine O’Hara Photography, who’s soft romantic style lent itself perfectly to this Paris Winter Shoot.

From Le Secret d’Audrey… Evelyn and Windy fell in Love with France and decided to celebrate their engagement with a photo shoot in the streets of Paris. Evelyn pictured herself strolling through the city with the most amazing gowns made custom for her. She opted for iconic designs to fit the timeless feel of the city. The cape on her gown was so perfect for Paris. We went through the Louvre and she looked as statuesque as the art around us. We ended up the day in a local cafe for a well deserved break. There is no better way to cuddle with your husband to be that at a French cafe when the sky is gray and all you want is drink hot chocolate and enjoy the show of the street.
