Today we have some incredible inspiration for all of you googling, "romantic elopement ideas." Michigan event planner and wedding designer, Katie Gregg Events & Co designed a sophisticated and intimate Parisian style elopement that is sure to inspire. Jennifer Boris Photography captured the day. You can view the entire gallery here

Without further ado, here is the story told through images of how a destination Parisian elopement day would play out.  The couple's day would start with a cozy morning session at their private Parisian estate. They read each other's handwritten love letters-followed by a glamorous getting ready session, and their intimately beautiful wedding ceremony. After their private ceremony, they sit together at a french cafe inspired sweetheart table and sip Champagne. The couple then enjoys a post-wedding celebratory signature cocktail. After their incredible day, they send their family their exciting elopement announcement from afar. Please scroll down. It is as magical as it sounds.

THIS COUPLE MET IN PARIS

Although this is an editorial, this is a real-life couple, and they both share a mutual love for all things Parisian inspired. They are both true romantics at heart and wanted to celebrate their passion in the most intimate way possible inspired by the city they love. This real-life couple first met in Paris, so this inspirational shoot met a lot to the couple.

They started their day in bed at Private estate in Grosse Pointe Michigan and read love letters to each other in bed before getting wedding-ready.
