WOW WOW WOW! To say this was a dream is an understatement – for me and for the couple!!
What could possibly top getting married in the most romantic city in the world surrounded by your closest family members… that’s exactly what Josh and Taunee decided to do! Within one day of us talking over the idea, we had an action plan and started working out the details (I also offer elopement planning services to make your day go as smoothly as possible)!
Taunee and Josh arrived a few days early. She got her dress here in Kentucky at Miss Priss and hopped on a plane. Once in Paris, she handmade her bouquet from vendors on the street – like how cute and special is that!! They got their cake from a high end bakery around the corner from their hotel and they used a local Paris violinist and officiant. When you opt to do a micro wedding, things seem to be a lot easier to figure out.
I arrived for getting ready and detail pictures at their hotel which was the perfect location that we also used for the reception. From there, they had a private driver take us to the ceremony location by the Eiffel Tower – it was giving secret garden and was so perfect (scroll down to see). The violinist was the perfect magical touch. He also played their first dance song and we took family photos!
From there, the family went back to the hotel for the reception and we (me and the bride and groom) headed around downtown Paris for portraits! It was so much fun and I can’t help but keep saying the word ~magical~ because it was!!!
Finally, we ended back on the rooftop for the reception where they had a champagne toast, delicious cake, laughter, and a nice meal with an epic view!!!
All in all, this was just IT. At the end of the day they agreed that this day was truly about them and their love for one another and that is exactly what it is supposed to be!!! Below are some of my faves from their special day <3
