From Vanessa & Caroline – Créatrices de MariagesRebecca and I came together to create a beautiful inspiration editorial for a chic Parisian elopement. Even though we live and work in Paris we don’t have a lot of opportunities to do a typical Parisian shoot. Paris is an endless source of inspiration. The city is so magical and romantic, we are never tired of seeing the Eiffel Tower or the streets of Montmartre. Everything in Paris from the cafés to the streets and buildings has a romantic touch everywhere you look. We wanted to style this elopement as a romantic escape in Paris: rose poudré, French roses, croquembouche from the famous Angelina, the streets of Montmarte – all the ingredients to a perfect and glamorous elopement in Paris. With this in mind, it made perfect sense start our day at the Eiffel Tower which is a stunning backdrop and takes our breath away every time. There is nothing quite as iconic as La Tour Eiffel and is the perfect spot to say intimate “I do’s.”

The second Parisian place we absolutely wanted to take pictures at was Angelina’s. Perfectly located on the Rue de Rivoli with its grand arches, this famous French pastry boutique and tea room is an institution in Paris, the symbol of the Parisian “art de vivre” for more than a century. It was Coco Chanel’s favorite place for her morning cappuccino. She used to come to Angelina every day while she was living at Le Meurice next door and sit at the same table. Angelina is launching a new collection of French wedding cakes and the chef created a masterpiece for us – the gorgeous and classic croquembouche. Next we took a stroll in Montmartre strolling down the cobblestone streets, perfect for lovers who want to take a quiet moment and discover Paris. Michaël Leal created a classic French bridal bouquet with French roses (Pierre de Ronsard), whites and blush pinks for a romantic touch. He also staged the croquembouche from Angelina’s, showing how classic Parisian flowers can add another layer of elegance to a dessert table. The delicacy and softness of the flowers added a classical yet lovely touch to the cake. The gorgeous bride with her elaborate and romantic updo wore a lovely couture wedding dress by Parisian designer Christophe-Alexandre Docquin paired with stunning Chanel earrings as another nod to classic Parisian elegance and grace. In true Parisian style we combined a classic Parisian designer with a fabulous new one for a romantic and grand wedding getaway in Paris.

Chateau de Vallery Wedding in Burgundy, France, near Paris


I am so excited to share this beautiful wedding today, wonderfully captured by French Grey Photography! The couple, Beatrice and Carlos, were married at the magnificent Chateau de Vallery in Burgundy, France, about an hour away from Paris. The bride Beatrice, got ready for her big day in the amazing Pigeonnier Tower, which is a converted tower that would normally house the grounds pigeons, doves and nests. It has a large beautiful glass ceiling, and telescope to view the stars and constellations at night. They even spent their honeymoon night in this same wonderful room. How romantic! I am loving that some of the detail shots were taken on some of the old constellation books that were in the room! The couple had a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the rose garden, and then after cocktails, moved inside to an elaborate reception. Upon first glance of the reception room, it looks like green striped fabric is draping the walls and ceiling. It actually isn’t fabic, but is all hand painted! Such an elegant and amazing wedding! Beatrice and Carlos currently live in Miami and operate their own private airplane tours there, Go Fly Tours. If you take a look at their wedding favors, they are the cutest! A hand painted rock with an airplane, their names, and wedding date! Love it!French-Grey-Photography-Chateau-De-Vallery-Burgundy-France-001
