Alison and Teddy’s Elopement in Paris

Alison & Teddy Elopement Paris

We would like to present you the elopement of Alison and Teddy, coming from New Orleans to Paris to celebrate their love in front of one of the most symbolic monument in Paris: the Eiffel Tower. Here is the story of their dream elopement in Paris…

The first contact with our team, DVV Events

Teddy contacted us through the blog because he wanted to make his wife’s dream come true. For his proposal, he knows Alison was so in love with Paris and the Eiffel Tower that he wanted to make it in front of the Eiffel Tower… But he did it in front of a small Eiffel Tower!

He decided to take her to Paris to elope in a very romantic trip to Paris. He needed our help to plan the perfect moment and to be the closest to the Eiffel Tower. We worked with him and then with Alison too to find the perfect place for their ceremony. The Eiffel Tower gardens were the best place to make it: they will be very close to the Eiffel Tower and we tried to find a place where we will be able to plan a ceremony with some privacy. As you may know, all the pictures you can see on Facebook or Instagram with the couple and the Eiffel Tower only, with no tourist, are taken very early in the morning, before 7 or 8 am!! As our Couple was coming from London and with a little bit of jet lag because of their trip from New Orleans, that option wasn’t possible of course. They decided to plan it between 5 and 6 pm and we found THE perfect place!

Their trip to Paris and the Elopement Day!

Alison and Teddy arrived the same day of the elopement by Eurostar from London. Alison wanted to take care of her own bouquet and the buttonhole of her husband (We love when the Couple decide to  do their own accessories, it becomes a very personalize wedding!) We had to plan a meeting for Alison’s hair but it was a Monday and as you may know, on Mondays, a lot of hairdressers are closed  in France but even more when it’s a public holiday day! Challenge accepted and Alison had her meeting, she was very happy with it!

We met with Teddy in front of the Eiffel Tower to choose the best place between the 2 places they had chosen.  We met also with Zoé, from Picturing Love, our lovely photographer <3 and we were all waiting for the bride to be who want to come with her friend. The moment was precious: Alison came with tears in her eyes while Teddy was making his best smile which said ” I am the most lucky man in the world”. Their happiness and love was so present that we all cried during the ceremony!!

After their ceremony, Zoé took them to a shooting near the Eiffel Tower and the Carrousel in front of the Trocadero. We made a reservation to the gorgeous Restaurant Monsieur Bleu with incredible views over the Eiffel Tower and the Seine… It was an incredible elopement for them but for us too!

Here are some words of Teddy after their elopement in Paris with DVV Events:

Your Elopement in Paris – Getting Married in Paris

ceremony in Paris 2

It’s official… You are getting married! But your dream wedding isn’t a wedding with guests, planning a big celebration and having diner with your guests… You just want to get married with your one-love, eyes in the eyes without any guests but only you two. How to do it? Is it possible to get married only you both? Of course it is… And we call it an elopementElopement in Paris.

A… what?

An elopement… What is exactly an elopement? It’s a wedding with only the bride and the groom. This new tendency of the wedding market is growing a lot since a few years. A lot of couple want to get married most of the time in another country or city without any guests, just both of them.

First of all, an elopement is maybe one of the most romantic way to get married. You are going to travel with your better-half to celebrate the love between you both. No guests, no big diner, no big wedding planning, just a celebration of your love and a lunch or a diner for you both, eyes in the eyes. It will be your own secret, your romantic getaway!

The elopement can be also a good idea if you don’t want to spend a lot of money in your wedding. You will be able to plan the wedding of your dream without spending 10 000-20 000€ or more, money you should have spent if you were planning a wedding with guests. For an elopement, we can say you will spend between 20 and 30% over what you will have to spend for a big wedding.

Maybe are you afraid telling to your close relations that they won’t be invited to your wedding because you are going to plan an elopement. You will have to explain them why you are planning an elopement instead of a big wedding. To make everyone happy, you can plan a post-wedding party to celebrate your wedding with your family and friends. It can be a good idea to balance an elopement and a party with your close family and relations for example, less bigger than a big wedding but as important as a celebration with your loved-ones.

Why chosing Paris for your elopement

The City of Love is one of the best places to plan your elopement. It is well-known that Paris is the City of the romanticism and love, a perfect place for your elopement.

We will have a lot of possibilities for your ceremony venue. You can select one of the incredible outside places such as parks and gardens: the Tuileries, the Luxembourg Park, the Buttes Chaumont Park and a lot more… They are perfect places for a green outside ceremony. All Parisian parks have a spot with intimity to plan your ceremony.

For an outside ceremony, the Seine docks can be a good place to have a spot with a lot of romanticism but also with great views over the City. There are also a lot of gorgeous bridges which can be very beautiful places even if you will have to be careful with the crowd. The Bir Hakheim is, for example, a bridge without cars and with a wonderful view over the Seine and the Eiffel Tower.

Then, Paris is full of wonderful and very famous monuments and places: the Eiffel Tower, the Louvres, the Champs-Elysees, the Concorde Place, the Trocadero,… All of these places are perfect places for a romantic and Parisian ceremony but you should be careful with the crowd, you don’t want them to ruin your intimate ceremony 😉 However, if you don’t want to deal with it, you can choose an outside place with an incredible view over your favorite place in Paris: what about a balcony with views over the Eiffel Tower?

You will have also the possibility to choose an inside place. Parisian architecture is amazing. Paris will offer you an intimate room in a private mansion or an hotel to celebrate a romantic ceremony. You can also rent a place with a balcony or a rooftop to have incredible views over the City of Love.

After your romantic ceremony, you can have lunch or diner at a restaurant in Paris. The gastronomy and wines/champagne are wonderful in France, so enjoy it for your elopement in Paris.
