M & A are an incredibly lovely couple from California who decided to celebrate their marriage with a springtime wedding in Paris. Joined by an intimate group of family and friends, they exchanged vows in a beautiful Parisian chapel and managed to just avoid the April showers that started at the end of the day.
The couple and their guests were among the kindest and friendliest people we’ve had the pleasure of working with, and the eloquence of their speeches was moving – which you can get a feel for in their beautiful video.

From the moment we met this Chicago-based couple we knew helping them plan their autumn wedding in Paris would be a dream.
Andrea & Tom chose to stay in one of our favorite Parisian hotels while they were in the city of lights. Formerly a private mansion (hôtel particulier), the hotel is decorated with incredible style – its winding staircases, arched ceilings and unexpected decorative details made for a romantic backdrop for their wedding weekend.
After the couple said their “I do’s” they toasted the occasion with their guests and enjoyed a mini pièce montée of raspberry and salted caramel macarons from Ladurée. As they were leaving the chapel, their guests showered them bubbles as everyone made their way to a celebratory dinner.
A note from the bride:
You definitely deserve the thanks! We are so appreciative of all of the work that went into our wedding, and so pleased with how everything turned out. The Fête in France team was patient and helpful throughout the process, and really helped us pull everything together on a somewhat tight timeframe. You were also a tremendous help when it came to finding different venues. Your suggestions for restaurants were spot on. In fact, all of the venues ended up being perfect. On top of that, you did a great job of setting everything up (both at the rehearsal dinner and at the chapel/restaurant on the day of the wedding). Everything looked beautiful. We really enjoyed working with Anthony and Audrey at One and Only, and we’re thrilled with the pics! So thank you again for everything. We had a wonderful time in Paris, and we absolutely love how it all turned out!
Cheers and best wishes go out to Andrea and Tom.
