An elopement in Paris

We’ve been very busy at Fête in France for the past few months so we’re finally catching you up on what we’ve been up to. You might have seen our post for the “A touch of red wedding” and here are a few pictures from an elopement wedding that we organized for a couple from Canada this September.

The couple rented a very retro-chic 1972 Citroen DS to chauffeur them around Paris for the afternoon.  They exchanged vows in the Gardens of the Rodin Museum.  For those of you paying close attention you’ll notice that the bride has two different bouquets in the pictures.  She accidentally left her bouquet on the Pont Alexandre III while taking pictures and only realized it just before she was about to walk down the aisle.  Luckily, green hydrangeas were in season and with a few quick snips, Fête in France whipped up a new bouquet on the spot.

A touch of red wedding

Carla and Morgan, both from Florida, came to celebrate their special day in Paris with a couple of close friends.  They exchanged vows in a small garden, near the Eiffel Tower followed by lots of little French treats.
