If you're going to elope, it doesn't get more romantic than the streets of Paris. For this inspiration shoot, the couple was dressed the part with the bride in a chic ensemble consisting of a white lace blouse and matching crepe pants and the groom wore a classic black tux. The two started their day with a romantic outdoor ceremony accompanied by a live three-piece band, then they strolled hand-in-hand on the historic streets near Sacré Coeur. This is where they finished their evening with a private dining table and a priceless view.
L'Amour L'Amour Paris wanted to show that an elopement can be both laid-back and chic at the same time (swoon...how Parisian!). L'Usine Á Petales designed the bride's elegant bouquet, which sported pastels and dark green foliage, and the matching arrangments on the dining tablescape. Yana Kishko captured this romantic video of the day and Berivans World is the artist behind these stunning photos. To see more from this shoot, check out the full gallery.

Chloe, our bride, wore high-waisted crepe pants and a lace blouse with balloon sleeves and a high collar by Galatee Couture. Timeless pieces that gave a fluid and elegant side! Maxime, our groom, wore a black tuxedo by L'apieceur, a master of elegance–a mix and match of style between our lovers of Montmartre! As for accessories, we accompanied the outfit with a white wool felt hat from the Traclet hat shop, embellished with a light veil, which completed the outfit to perfection! For the rest of the festivities, the straw hat was replaced by an oversized bow, chosen for its delicate and romantic style. Sabine Costanzo, the Hair Stylist, worked the bride's hair with style and simplicity to give her a nice "tousled" effect. Her beautiful makeup look was done by Larisse Kouamen who enhanced our bride in a natural way while adding a glamorous touch with the use of a red lipstick!
A UNIQUE CEREMONY
Our bride and groom said "YES" for life in a beautiful and intimate ceremony! With the Sacré Coeur in the background, they were seated on two vintage armchairs under a flowery arch made by our duo from L'Usine Á Petales, Anais & Nolwenn, lovers of beautiful products and seasonal flowers. The Manal Paris wedding rings were chosen in a fresh retro style, which perfectly matched the tones of the day! Elisa Grilli Di Cortona, a skilled painter, captured the ceremony with a watercolor of our bride and groom to immortalize this beautiful moment. What a nice souvenir to keep and contemplate afterward in order to remember all the emotions of the moment. It is also Elisa who designed all the stationery, made of watercolors and a bit minimalist.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds opened the festivities by toasting with delicious cocktails personalized with the colors and flavors of the day, made by Vincent from V Cocktails Event! For the cocktail, he used a retro decoration, powdered tones, and raw elements! In the spirit of Montmartre, different styles of art were selected to be part of the shoot. The music from the musical trio, Aya, made our couple swing during the cocktail hour to jazzy tunes! Even in the gastronomy of the cocktail we find an artistic universe with the Tableaux Paris, real creations to taste! With their extraordinary color palettes, they immediately attracted all eyes and seduced the taste buds!
A WALK WITH A VIEW
Then, our bride and groom escaped for a few moments for a stroll just the two of them, immersed in the bustle of the streets and cafes around the Place du Tertre. Even if the crowd had eyes only for our couple, we wished for our bride to be incognito by adding an essential accessory to her outfit: sunglasses! Chosen in a retro style, they match her outfit. Finally, we find the Sacré Coeur under another angle for the head table. The panorama offers a breathtaking view of all of Paris! A refined and simple decoration, fresh floral arrangements in powdery tones, and tableware with golden details straight out of a Parisian cupboard. Here is the timeless and romantic style you want for your wedding table! A Haussmanian-style mirror with a golden frame was proudly displayed, decorated with the names of the bride and groom written subtly with red lipstick...which reminds us of our bride's makeup!
