Happy Monday and are we ready for a bumper week! We are starting off with the wedding of Stephanie and Cyrus at a beautiful wedding location in Paris, Parc Monceau. The Parc is in the VIII arr. of Paris and is located at the junction of Boulevard de Courcelles, Rue de Prony and Rue Georges Berger, 5 mins from the Eiffel Tower and the Seine. The garden designed by Carmontelle was finished in 1779. Within the gardens there is also a miniature Egyptian pyramid, a simply gorgeous Roman colonnade, antique statues, a pond of water lilies.
To celebrate their first time in Europe, Stephanie and Cyrus stopped over in Paris for a few days before heading to the south and Italy. They decided to elope a few months earlier and thought of Paris, this iconic city of Love and romance, to seal their love for each other. They contacted Olivier Lalin, wedding photographer from WeddingLight to see if he would be available to shoot their wedding then WeddingLightEvents to help planning for every little details.
Olivier met up with the bride at the Hotel Chambriges Elysées – 8 Rue Chambriges, 75008 Paris. A lovely boutique hotel, tucked away in a quaint little street, right off the Champs Elysées.
From Stephanie, “We knew he would Olivier would be able to capture our love through his photographs.”
The team at WeddingLight take us through their day: “Stephanie and Cyrus were originally planning on tying the knot on the River Seine with a view of the Eiffel Tower, but when they saw the little bridge and the Park in one of our blog features, they thought the settings would be just perfect, and it was indeed. We met up with Cyrus at the Park. He took some time to chill by himself with a good book in hand about Paris history.
Stephanie was gorgeous in her wedding dress. They had an amazing time going around the city with Olivier our photographer– jumping out as they pleased from the Seine to the Eiffel tower, tuilerie gardens,ect ….”
Stephanie: ” We both had the same favorite memory. During our photoshoot at the fashion museum, we were able to play and interact with some of the kids that were playing at the park. When we were leaving they gave us flowers they had picked off a bush. It made both of our hearts melt and made us excited to have kids one day. The best part is the photographer got great pictures so we have a nice reminder of the moment. ”
WeddingLight: “Stephanie wanted to stop at a “merry go round“ she had spotted the day before as they went up the Eiffel tower. They had a glorious afternoon exploring “ the city of Love “ and then were dropped off at Le Keller for dinner, right in time for their dinner reservations.”
