WEDDING: Elegant Parisian elopement
Maria and Stanislav wanted something unforgettable and unique! Not just a party with a lot of guests, but a unique moment so they decided to elope to Paris. They wanted to have an elegant and simple elopement.
Katerina from SoSpecialEvents specialises on the organisation of elegant elopements so she made everything to made the couple dreams come true: from finding the perfect hotel for the bridal morning (with a view on Parisian rooftops) to officiating the most intimate ceremony at the Palais Royal. The bride wanted to have peonies in her bouquet, though they were out of season. So Poème florist replaced them with beautiful
garden roses that looked exactly like bride's favourite peonies.
Maria was getting ready in The Hotel Lumen Paris located in the heart of Paris, next to the Louvre, the Palais Garnier Opera House, and other historical sites, with an amazing view on the Louvre museum from her windows, enjoying some macaroons. The first look was her favourite moment of the day, because of all the love she saw in Stanislav's eyes as he saw her dress for the very first time. She managed to hide it from him till the wedding day, despite travelling together to Paris. After the first look, we headed to the ceremony location. Majestic walls and columns of the Palais Royal, a palace located in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, built in the 17th century, is probably the most elegant outdoor location in Paris.
After exchanging their vows, the newlyweds enjoyed taking their wedding photos in Palais Royal Gardens, before heading to the most beautiful bridge in Paris - Alexander III bridge and of course, the iconic Eiffel Tower.
