Maritza and Mateo knew from the start of the wedding process that they did not want the ‘big’ wedding but instead something that defined their bohemian chic.
They invited their immediate family only to attend a very intimate ceremony at a private Parisian Chapel last May. With a classical guitarist to accompany the ceremony the couple said their I do’s in front of this select group.
After the ceremony the guests got a private tour of Paris in a vintage blue bus while the couple went around the city with Lifestories for a photo and video shoot.
A few hours later the group met up in a gilded salon in a hotel for a private dinner under a crystal chandelier.
After a meal filled with classic French cuisine, champagne and fine French wines, guests were treated to a beautiful wedding cake from Synie’s. Congratulations to the happy couple!
Shannon and Garrett decided they wanted to host an intimate wedding with about 30 of their closest friends and family in Paris. Their criteria: a summer garden ceremony and garden reception.
Fête in France was able to secure the very exclusive Rodin Museum gardens for their ceremony in August and they selected the Jardins de Bagatelle in the Bois de Boulogne for their reception. As a photographer herself, the selection of the photography was very important to Shannon and the couple engaged the services of the film photographer, Greg Finck.
The couple started off the day with a first look in front of a monumental set of doors in the 5th district of Paris, near their hotel. Then set off for photos around the city prior to the ceremony. In the meantime, guests gathered at the Rodin Museum and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings before the ceremony got underway.
After the ceremony guests enjoyed champagne, good food, dancing and cake at the Jardins de Bagatelle. All the beautiful floral decor here is courtesy of Madame Artisan Fleuriste.
