Jardin du Luxemborg Elopement
After the decision to ditch big wedding plans in Vancouver, Nicole + Kurtis packed their bags and flew to Paris to celebrate their love. They even wrote in their first message to me that they both had a very definite ‘Screw it, Let’s get Married in Paris’ moment. I’m so happy I got to capture this one.
Kurtis had proposed on their first trip to France at Champs de Mars, by the Eiffel Tower. This visit they officially tied the knot in the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens.
Getting ready took place at the Hotel LA Belle Juliette in the Marias and we took a short drive over to the gardens for a first look. The ceremony spot was overlooking the palace and blooming gardens. Officiating was by The Paris Officiant, flowers came from a shop down the street, the dress was carried on the plane, jewelry was made up of family heirlooms and the groom rented locally. The brides parents were in attendance to watch along with other picnickers, day-dreamers, readers + tourists.
We strolled through the sunny gardens a bit afterwards before heading over to the Eiffel Tower where this sweet story began. Trocadero is always a popular spot and was filled with people this afternoon. We also did a little honeymoon session the next morning at the Louvre and I added some of those below. So happy some of my favorites from this perfect Paris Elopement <3
