Wendy and Aaron’s destination wedding in Paris

Wendy and Aaron went to Paris in September 2017 to plan their wedding. We visited several venues, met their photographer and found the venue of their ceremony. We had an incredible time with them and had all planned by the end of their stay in Paris. Doing a trip to Paris when you are planning your destination wedding is always a great idea. You will be able to meet your providers before your wedding and visit all the venues of your wedding. If you can’t, don’t worry, we are Parisian and French specialist so we will find your perfect vendors.

The photoshoot road-trip

Our couple wanted to have a photoshoot in several points in Paris before their ceremony. So, we planned a real road-trip in Paris with their photographer Lola Prod. We started the photoshoot at the gorgeous Alexandre III bridge, maybe one of the most beautiful bridges in Paris! But the couple really wanted to go the Louvre Museum district. So we stay 1h30 in this district discovering places from the Tuilerie Gardens to the Comedy Française outsides. We went then to the Cathedral Notre-Dame to take some photos before the ceremony.

The ceremony

Wendy and Aaron felt in love with Notre-Dame-de-Paris (who would not?) so they decided to spend all their wedding in this district. It was an evidence to plan their ceremony in front of the gorgeous Cathedral of Notre-Dame. They dreamed of the ceremony and make it true with Sabrina, their wedding-planner and celebrant. They created their own ceremony with her and validated the text. They wrote their own vows and chose their ritual… Here are the pictures!

After the ceremony, their photographer took some shots of all the guests with the bride and groom to immortalize this incredible moment. Then, they walked from the Cathedral to the wedding venue…

The Wedding Venue

After this small walk through the district of Notre Dame, the guests arrived at the beautiful restaurant, one of the most older restaurant of Paris! They were welcomed in a typical Parisian room with some drinks and canapés with foie gras of course!

Then, they all went to the wedding room all decorated by Wendy, Aaron and us. The stationary were made by the talented Aurore from Zeste d’Amour.

Each guest had the chance to choose their own menu before the wedding so everybody had his personal menu! This is a possibility when you plan a destination wedding in Paris with less than 50 guests.

For the dessert, Wendy and Aaron wanted to mix the French and Canadian culture so our partner, Les Gourmandises de Léa et Louise made them a Red Velvet with a croquembouch! All in only one wedding cake and it was so delicious!!!

Wendy and Aaron: their trip to Paris to prepare their wedding

September 7th 2018…

Two beautiful souls are going to plan their wedding in Paris and we have the honour to help them to prepare one of the most beautiful day of their lives. Sabrina will also be the celebrant of their ceremony so we are even more excited about it!

Wendy and Aaron decided to send us an e-mail after visiting our blog “Getting Married in Paris”. They were looking for a wedding-planner in Paris as they really want to plan their destination wedding in Paris, a city they love so much. We had send them our proposal for their wedding and they have decided to give us their trust… What an incredible trip together!

They planned a trip to Paris last September to meet us and to visit all their providers and taste the caterer of course (one of the best moment of the planning… French gastronomy and wines…. Yummmmyyyy). It was really a good idea to plan this trip a year before their wedding because we had the opportunity to have the same conditions as it will be for their real wedding such as the weather (even if it is a little bit unpredictable in France and even more in Paris), the places with turists, …  If you have the opportunity to plan a trip to Paris even if it is months before, it is always a good idea. However, if you don’t have time to come to Paris, don’t worry… The surprise of your wedding in Paris will be even more amazing!

Wendy and Aaron have always been in love with Notre-Dame-de-Paris… How not to be in love with this place? The romanticism of the monument and its beautiful park, the Seine crossing the place and the little Isle called “Ile de la Cité” is so Parisian!

The day after their arrival, we have started to visit the wedding venues because the venue will decide the caterer. As you may know, in Paris, some places have their own caterers and some other not. The places that Wendy and Aaron have decided to visit have their own caterers as they were restaurants or private mansions. After two visits, they decided to stop the visits! Why? They have found their perfect venue for their wedding in Paris: a very cosy, gorgeous and Parisian restaurant with views over Notre-Dame-de-Paris and the district. The caterer was then the restaurant itself: a gastronomic typical French food and wines and champagne for their guests, to make them discover Paris… Also, a pianist will play during their cocktail: they fall in love with this idea of having some beautiful music played by a Professional pianist with a glass of a Champagne in one hand and a petit-four of Foie Gras on the other hand. What an incredible day they had and we had some much fun with them because as we always say: Planning your destination wedding in Paris has to be fun too!

You will ask me about the ceremony venue? The park of Notre-Dame will be the perfect place to celebrate their love of course 🙂

As the planning of the visits has been canceled because they found THEIR perfect place, we have time to meet their photographer in Paris. What they weren’t expected is that their photographer will start taking photos of them in Paris! It was not a sunny day but we had incredible views over the Eiffel Tower to not lose the day! Aren’t they gorgeous and happy?
