A Real Paris Elopement

Meghann and James were not planning on eloping. Meghann just happened to have stumbled on One and Only Paris Photography while searching around for Vera Wang wedding gowns.

She came across a Paris elopement. While looking though those photos, she became captivated with the idea of eloping to the city of love. A few months later, she was living out that fantasy. Below, you can see Meghann on her laptop video-chat with her mother who’s across the Atlantic.

  19. -100. Nicole says:

    Everything about this is GORGEOUS, couple, photos, dress, Paris.. I would also love to know where the belt is from, as well as the birdcage veil?

  20. -100. Meghann says:

    Thank you all for your wonderful comments!! My husband and I could not be happier with how things turned out! I wanted to answer a few questions: Unfortunately, I have no idea who made the sash, but it was purchased from Pearl’s Place in New Orleans. The dress came with a large white flower pinned in the front that I removed, and the sash was actually originally brown velvet so I took it to a seamstress and had her remove all of the beading and then attach it to the black satin sash (which I purchased on ebay for around 20 bucks :)) The sash and dress were purchased separately. The veil is from Etsy. There are endless birdcage vendors on their. Hope this helps :)

  21. -100. Molly Wood says:

    Hi Meghann

    Where did your husband find his tuxedo? My fiance has been on the hunt for a really nice shawl collar tuxedo for a month now.

  22. -100. Carmen says:

    Hi Meghann,

    I loved your pictures! Everything was beyond stunning! What a romantic memory for you and your husband. What is the center stone of your ring? It is lovely!

  23. -100. Meghann says:

    Thank you so much!! Molly- We live in Los Angeles, so we rented it from Mr. Tuxedo in Westwood. They were so wonderful to work with!

    Carmen- It is a black diamond :)

  24. Gorgeous photos, stunning bride, incredible wedding in my favorite city in the world.

    Can you tell me who made your dress and what the name of it is? I love the whole package.

  31. -100. Jazmin says:

    Beautiful elopement. My fiancé and I are planning the same kind of thing. My only question is, did you use an elopement package? Or did you do everything ‘al a carte’. Your answer would be greatly appreciated. :)

    Congrats again.

  32. -100. Crystal says:

    I actually had the exact same question regarding elopement packages, or A La Carte. I’m having a rather difficult time finding information related to eloping to Paris. Your experience looks like perfection! Stunning all around! Advice?

  33. -100. Tiffany says:

    I love that you eloped but you still got married in a church.. I’ve been thinking about eloping myself, how did you get all the info for your elopement??

  34. -100. Elise says:

    This is exactly what my fiancée and I want! Was it difficult to get permission to get married in a church??
