Paris Luxury wedding at the Ritz hotel

We kicked off another beautiful Parisian event with a gorgeous wedding at the Ritz Hotel Paris. The lovely young couple, Lauren and Arnett, are true world travelers and from the moment they were engaged they knew they to be married in Paris. With the help of the Ritz Hotel and our inhouse photographer from WeddingLight, their luxurious wedding day dream was made a reality and
captured in time through these lovely images.

Lauren and Arnett flew to Paris all the way from Houston, Texas last month to tie the knot in fabulous style. They invited their friends and family to come and celebrate their love in the most romantic city in the world. They really made the most of Paris by marrying and celebrating in the five star Ritz Hotel located in the center of the city.
Lauren wore a stunning gown designed by Mira Zwillinger. This special gown from the Stardust collection is an open back lace dress with sleeves. Lauren looked positively ethereal walking down the aisle which was lit up by candles and colored with flower petals. For the flower decor, Lauren and Arnett chose a pink and white theme. Their florist, Anne Vitchen, used spring flowers like pink peonies, white roses and hydrangeas. The decor was absolutely elegant.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds went off for an adventurous photo tour of Paris. Olivier, from WeddingLight, led them through the city and captured beautiful photographs that Lauren and Arnett will cherish forever. They went everywhere, from the Louvre to the Arc de Triomphe. These photographs feature all of the most iconic spots in Paris. Lauren and Arnett looked radiant in the afterglow and excitement of having just said their “I do’s.”

This fun loving couple returned to the Ritz after their photo tour for a night of food, drinks, and dancing. The Ritz organized a beautiful 5 course dinner for the wedding party. Every detail was taken care of including elegant name cards, bouquets, candles, and of course — champagne and a gorgeous six layer chocolate wedding cake made with chocolate ganache, vanilla, and strawberries and cream . After dinner, the newlyweds and wedding guests headed to the dance floor arranged by the Ritz. Lauren even changed into another shorter party gown, by the designer Romona Keveza, so that she could continue celebrating in style. The young couple and guests held their after party at the nightclub Jangal and invited Olivier to come along and take some more pictures as the night progressed. Everyone was in great spirits because what’s more fun than celebrating love in city of light.


This was such an amazing wedding to witness — it was pure joy and elegance. The Ritz Hotel did such a wonderful job of creating this beautiful and luxurious wedding day. I hope you enjoy looking at the photographs as much as our photographer did taking them.

Levie + Jason Lovely Parisian elopement

Levie and Jason married in Paris! They eloped actually … Levie had seen one of our elopement on the blog and reached out to us asking whether it may be possible to plan her elopement within a couple of months. They were flying to Paris for the first time and had decided to celebrate their union in an intimate fashion, that is just the two of them!
They had no special request apart from making sure they were going to have a wonderful day running around town in a classic 1950’s 2CV with their photographer. We “LOVE” their wedding photographs. They are quite vibrant, shot in a lively manner by Olivier; our photographer. Fred and Muriel; our wonderful hair and make up artists met up with our bride at her apartment in the Marais. We called upon Estelle Preston for the bride wedding bouquet and boutonniere. Levie wanted her ceremony outside somewhere close to the Eiffel tower yet fairly quiet & away from a possible crowd. So we decided on the steps of the magnificent palais Galliera; Paris fashion museum which on this very occasion was very quiet and simply perfect for an intimate wedding ceremony.

We found an authentic 1952 2CV citroen to drive our couple around town for their photo session. You will see a few photographs of this very cute French car in the photo story below actually.
Again, Olivier did a great job with the photography. The final result is simply breathtaking. It really shows their happiness and love for each other.

Finally, Romain their driver, dropped our lovely couple off at the Bristol hotel for their diner. We had arranged a table at the “Epicure Restaurant“, one of the most exquisite dining experience in the city.

Enjoy some of their memories with us. It was so much fun to orchestrate the elopement of this charming couple in Paris. Everything turned out beautifully! We all had a beautiful afternoon of fun and romance in the streets of Paris. The best team of wedding professionals in town at your service …
We are very much looking forward to hearing from you with any questions in regards to your dream elopement in our beautiful city. So reach out to us, we would be simply delighted to assist you and fulfil your expectations the best we can.

Laura & Richard elopement Trocadero gardens

Laura and Richard eloped to Paris. Close family members flew from Boston to gather at the gardens of the Trocadero for their wedding celebration. We almost moved the ceremony location at the last minute due to chance of a thunder storm which did not happen until much later. It was the first time that we organize a wedding ceremony at the gardens of the Trocadero for a client’s elopement. It was quite gorgeous, very peaceful and quite moving. Laura and Richard went on a two hours photo tour in the streets of Paris with Olivier from WeddingLight. They decided on a 1970’s Excalibur to take them around town. Edith from “Une Fleur en Liberté” composed a beautiful summer wedding bouquet and boutonniere.. It was a real pleasure to plan their intimate parisian wedding. Everyone had a wonderful time & thank god it didn’t rain on the day.

Shelby & Steve Paris intimate wedding

Shelby & Steve married in Paris this past week end. Shelby wanted an outside ceremony where 12 of their friends and family members could gather to celebrate their union. Square Jean XXIII was the perfect location. Olivier from WeddingLight took them around town for a few hours for an unforgettable photo tour. They had their wedding reception at ” Les Ombres” restaurant. The view of the Eiffel tower is such a marvel from the terrace. We just wanted to thank all of our vendors who did an amazing job.
Congratulation to the newly weds from WeddingLight events Paris. It was wonderful to be able to be part of such an amazing afternoon in the city of love.
