Georges & Susie Enchanted Classic Paris Elopement

I have to say we have had a fantastic wedding season at WeddingLight Events. Kids are back to school, fall in Paris is to die for, colors are changing fast and the light is ever so nice on your skin. The temperature has dropped a bit, sure but we do live in the most wonderful city on earth. Our clients have been ever so sweet. We have been blessed to organize elopements and weddings for clients flying from destinations such as the U.S, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Norway to name a few. We are in the middle of fine tuning an elopement in October for a couple flying from NYC. A beautiful wedding coming along in November and another one for christmas. We do love what we do and it is the most amazing feeling to share our clients happiness on one of the most beautiful day of their life. A few photographs from one of our recent couple from California, Georges and Susie that our wedding photographer Olivier has just sent over to us. They were so happy and thrilled to be getting married in Paris.

Stephanie and Cyrus opted to elope to Paris in early September and what a beautiful way to share their love of one another than a private ceremony for two in a charming Parisian park. The weather has been a dream and Stephanie and Cyrus had a gorgeous sunny day with blue skies to celebrate and take some photos with our fabulous photographer, Olivier Lalin.  What a lovely couple!

Top 5: Where to Buy your Wedding Bands in Paris

We bring you our selection of the top spots to buy your wedding rings in Paris. There’s no more special way to remember your big day in Paris than buying your wedding bands on your trip. Especially since France is renowned for fashion and jewelry design worldwide. Whether you want a classic ring designer, unique boutique or antique piece we have the answers.

1. Cartier

The French standard

The epitome of luxury French jewelry design, Cartier has to be top of any French jewelry design list.   There is nothing more classic or timeless than a Cartier wedding ring, and your friends will be stunned by its benchmark of quality. The house has a rich and royal background, with many exhibitions held under its famous name. It was founded in Paris in 1847 originally as a family company. They became most recognised for their pocket watches and symbolised by their panther, but it is their rings which stole the heart of diamond loving romantics worldwide. A name which has become truly synonymous with romance and excess. The only thing more special than a Cartier wedding band, is a Cartier wedding band purchased in Paris.

2. Paulette à Bicyclette

Ethical Jewelry and Design Workshops

The number one spot for any bohemian couple Paulette à Bicyclette is founded on the principal of ethical jewelry, and specialises in wedding pieces. She loves working on rings which represent a couples love and happiness! In this artisan jeweller everything is made from recycled materials in an eco-responsible fashion.

3. Dary’s

High End Antique Specialists

If you want an antique ring then Dary’s is the number one address to go to. Specialising in ancient jewelry and contemporary 18th   and 19th century high end pieces, this is an amazing place if you want something not only beautiful, but also something with its own history and story to tell.  They are truly experts in their field and authenticity is 100% guaranteed.

4. Boucheron

The original on Place Vendôme

Boucheron was the first jeweler to open its doors on Place Vendôme, the heart of France’s luxury jewelry market, and one of Paris’s founding ring makers. They stand alongside Cartier as trail blazers of the French luxury jewellery market. Clients have included tsars, princesses and maharajahs. Boucheron set out to find the best stones which are then worked on by the best craftsmen, controlling quality of raw materials and workmanship at all levels.

5. Chanel Fine Jewelry

High Fashion Meets Bridal Elegance

The fashionistas choice, Chanel entered the jewelry market with her first collection in 1932 . Originally developing a niche with designer costume jewelry, mixing real and fake stones Chanel changed the jewelry market as she had the fashion industry. The houses wedding pieces are however of course all about the diamonds.

“If I have chosen diamonds, it is because they represent the highest value in the smallest volume” Coco Chanel.

Diamonds symbolise the elegance and sophistication which embodies Chanel.  Classic cuts and the best chosen pieces are the basis of the jewelry line. We love this gorgeous ribbon ring in 18k white gold and diamond.

Chanel

Their store on Place Vendôme now also has a workshop upstairs, making special orders on site.

Paris Elopement: Cassie & Eric from Michigan, USA

Meet Cassie and Eric from Michigan, USA. The gorgeous couple came to Paris for their honeymoon before heading to Rome for the remainder of their trip – oo la la! How romantic! Being that this was their first time in the City of Love, they wanted to do something extra special to commemorate their time here and of course the occasion. So naturally they contacted our fabulous photographer, Olivier Lalin of WeddingLight Photography, to do a Paris Photo Tour around the city. Cassie wore her wedding gown and Eric wore his tuxedo and the two spent 4 full hours shooting around the city. What wonderful memories they will have looking back on this trip!

Congratulations Cassie and Eric! We wish you all the best!
