Want to run off to Paris for a Paris Elopement Wedding? Oh if I was to get married to Mr Trulove again I am sure that I can be convinced!  That is exactly what todays real couple, Natalia and Aleksandr, did as they left stunning New York city and exchanged that skyline for the equally stunning skyline of Paris!

Combining their trip to Paris with their honeymoon, the couple saw and experienced Paris as though they were Movie Stars complete with a beautiful vintage car to transport them on their magic day.

Bride Natalia takes us through her wedding day: “We got married two years ago, in New York City Hall. But I wanted our wedding to be special and intimate, so after a few thoughts we decided to give it a shot and elope to Paris. It was a good choice, as I have never been in France before, and we combined the event with our honeymoon. 

We stayed in Paris and Nice. I completely fell in love with France. 

I purchased my dress in Pronovias, New York. I didn’t want to spend months going from one store to another, trying to find “the one”. Once I tried this dress, I purchased it right then. And I am totally in love with my choice.

I bought a lot of small details on Etsy.com, such as stationary, dress hanger, veil and hair accessory. 

I found my hair and makeup artist Mounira Boughanem through the internet. She was professional and friendly, the result was up to par.

Our photographer Petar Jurica came from Croatia. He did an amazing job. Really, I was so nervous about hiring a photographer without prior meeting him, but Petar went above and beyond to make our pictures special. I would highly recommend him.

I also used Classic Rentals in Paris, Aleks choose classy and retro Chaika to be our car! 

To sum it up, it was completely worth coming all the way from New York and I am extremely happy we decided to have a wedding in Paris. While we were strolling around the city, a lot of bystanders cheered for us, took pictures with us and wished us lots of years of love and happiness. We didn’t feel like it were only two of us, the whole Paris was with us!
