Becca & Alex’s story is one that spans three continents: the US – specificially New York City – where Becca was living when she & Alex met; Brazil, Alex’s home country and the place they now call home together; and France – specifically Paris – where they celebrated their wedding with friends from around the world.
Intimate weddings are always such a pleasure to plan and this spring wedding shows yet again that Paris is beautiful no matter what the season!
Jenny and Dan were engaged in Paris and decided it would also be the perfect city to celebrate their intimate wedding. Working in events herself in Las Vegas, Jenny knew the importance of hiring a wedding planner to coordinate their big day abroad. They decided to keep the guest list to the immediate family circle but still wanted the details of a beautifully designed wedding.
The wedding day began with the preparations for the bride and the ladies attending the wedding, in a private rental apartment. To bring a little bit of colour into her wedding outfit, Jenny chose to wear pink Valentino peep toes.
The couple chose a chapel devoted to Louis XVI and his wife Marie-Antoinette as their ceremony venue. The ceremony was accompanied by a classical guitarist. After the ceremony, a white vintage Rolls Royce brought them to the festivities, while their guests enjoyed a ride in a vintage Parisian minibus.
The private mansion, where the cocktail and gourmet dinner was held, was decorated using roses and our favorite winter/spring flower – ranunculus. The vintage cake topper belonged to Jenny’s grandparents and lent a charming personal touch to their petit 2-tier wedding cake.
