This a story how dreams can come true! If you dream it, you can do it! Rachelle and Scott decided to elope in Paris in the intimate circle of family and friends and they got the great team of So Special Events to help them make this a reality. We started the day getting ready at Hotel Splendid Etoile, one of my favorite locations with a gorgeous view of Arc de Triomphe and also the Eiffel tower in some of the rooms. Hair and make up for Rachelle were done by the talented Onorina Jomir. The bridal bouquet was prepared by La Plume Fleur.
To add a special touch to their Paris experience, the couple chose 4 roues sous 1 parapluie 2CV vintage car to drive them around Paris to the ceremony location and then during the portraits photoshoot. For the elopement ceremony location the guys chose Bir-Hakeim bridge - a perfect spot with an iconic view of the Eiffel Tower which is relatively free of tourists throughout the day, so unlike Trocadero, here it's possible to have a ceremony not disturbed by the crowds. After an emotion exchange of vows and some champagne, we drove off for their Paris photographer portrait session and spent the next couple of hours taking photos at Alexandre III bridge, Luxembourg garden, and the courtyard of the Louvre Museum. It was truly a magical morning and I'm grateful to have been a part of this team creating a lifetime memory for Rachelle and Scott.
