Clémence & Maxime
Here we are! September 5th, 2020. After endless weeks of stress and doubt, the wedding will take place. Of course, we lost some guests, we had to wear masks, to review the configuration of the secular ceremony… But Clémence & Maxime chose to keep smiling and to celebrate the intensity of their love with their closest friends at the Ritz Hotel.
Why the Ritz, because they like to escape from Versailles from time to time and take refuge in its Parisian cocoon. Because at the Ritz, we are surrounded by molding but we feel “like at home.”
And that’s all the spirit they wanted for the wedding: between conviviality and elegance to please themselves and others.
Happiness was already at its peak but Maxime wanted to make this day even more exceptional. When Clémence and her two witnesses ordered room service in the morning before starting the preparations, they were finally invited to go to one of the most beautiful suites of the hotel with a magnificent view on the Place Vendôme, emptied of its tourists. As if that morning, this little piece of Paris belonged only to them.
Drunk with joy, Clémence enjoys her breakfast with her friends. The team of make-up, hairstyle settles while the friends arrive progressively to prepare themselves with Clémence.
It is 9:45 am… Clémence receives a letter written by Maxime. The emotion rises again of a notch. Especially when she reads this last sentence : “rendez-vous in front of the hotel entrance…”
Exploding with Love
A vintage fiat adorned with hundreds of flowers is waiting for Clémence. Maxime wanted to surprise her a little more, to make her smile even more.
The heart ready to explode with love, Clémence goes back to her suite to be sublimated by the delicate hands of Trine.
Laughter of the morning
Little by little, the wedding planner makes the vacuum around Clémence who has difficulty to contain her rise of stress. After the laughter of the morning with the group of friends, the return to calm is necessary.
The desire to take the time to put on each accessory, to put on her dress and to savor each moment of this so much awaited moment.
On the other side of the suite, the father of Clémence tries small jokes to hide his emotion… In vain, it is quite palpable.
And a few minutes later, on her father’s arm, Clémence goes down this mythical staircase. This time, taking the elevator is out of the question.
She hears the music of the Procession, in a few moments, the Corsican singers will start the same melody as the one played at their civil wedding in Corsica. The power of the voices upsets the quietness of the Ritz garden and makes it necessary to stop for a few minutes.
Clémence is radiant, Maxime is overwhelmed by feelings. Beautifully orchestrated, the ceremony reveals the authenticity, the complicity and the generosity of Clémence and Maxime.
The party continues to the rhythm of the strolling band. The desire to party, to have fun, to forget this sacred year 2020 is strong, the guests have fun and enjoy each music.
Clémence and Maxime take the opportunity to escape with their photographers and videographers to walk the streets of Paris.
The guests still talk to Clémence and Maxime about the culinary experience that night followed by the crazy dance party. If you’re going to wear a mask, you might as well have a costume party.
2020 was also the scene of some very happy days. Clémence & Maxime said yes!
