Hello to you Trulovers, how are your weekend?  I have such an inspirational packed week coming up for you, starting with this ultra glamorous with a vintage edge Eiffel Tower Elopement.

Robert & Meagen from Miami, Florida decided that they wanted an intimate and fairytale elopement in Paris, so they contacted the team at Wedding Luxe to make their dream a reality.

 

Fernanda Silva from Wedding Luxe says: “Meagen thought of all the single details and we had the pleasure of working together for several months in order to make this day a memorable one. When we first met in the morning, it felt as if we had known each other for years ☺. It was their first time in Europe and they were mesmerized.

Meagen flew all the way from Miami to Paris with her beautiful bridal dress and asked us for a lavender bouquet to go with her shoes. Our floral designer in Paris got the most vivid lavender colors ever which matched her shoes perfectly.

The preparation was in a lovely boutique hotel in Quartier Latin in Paris. Meagen wanted to surprise Robert and the ‘first look’  happened right there in front of the hotel where Robert was waiting for her. Our photographer captured the moment and we all got pretty emotional from there. The ceremony and the exchange of vows and rings took place in Champ-de-Mars facing the Eiffel Tower. After that we took them for a photo session on the Alexander III bridge and the Louvre museum. Finally it was the moment to literally ‘tie the knot’ on one of the bridges with lockers in Paris and they had the sweetest engraved locker I had ever seen 🙂

Meagen had a list of wishes and one of them was to have a photo session  in Paris in the evening. We surely worked on that so they would have the most inspiring pictures in front of the lit Eiffel Tower ☺

 We organize many elopements in Paris every year, but why was this one so special? Robert and Meagen were really connected as a couple and we can surely see that on their pictures. Congratulations Robert & Meagen : l’amour is the secret.

Bride Megan talks us through their big day:  “Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of my wedding day. Never did I imagine it would be in Paris, the city of love. Every now and then I think back to that special day and it feels like it was all a dream.

My husband, fiancée at the time, came to me with the idea of Paris. As we were debating what location and venue to choose, he came across Wedding Luxe on the internet. Once he showed me their website and the picture galleries of other romantic brides who had chosen to elope in Paris, I knew in my heart Paris was the location!

Our entire day was stress-free and magical all at the same time, thanks to the wonderful team at Wedding Luxe. Wedding Luxe  proved to be exactly what they advertise on their website and much, much more. What I appreciated the most of Wedding Luxe was their passion to detail and commitment to ensure our day went flawless. And they truly succeeded! The beauty of Paris speaks for itself and its character was definitely apparent throughout our pictures. Paris will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Thanks for all ☺”

Congratulations to Magan and Robert, for not only a memorable wedding day but truly beautiful wedding images.
