Once upon a time…. there was a beautiful young maiden with eyes as blue as the ocean, and hair as soft as a breeze.

Paris. The city of love. When delicate, quirky Bride Nadine first consulted with us, she made it known in her soft, demure voice - and in no uncertain terms - that Paris is her “very own special place”. A place she could call home. A place she fell in love with a long time ago, a city reminiscent of romance and true love - a city rich and overflowing with culture and magical sights - a city where she heard those words stringed together into that long-awaited question ….. “Will you marry me?”
From that momentous day on the bridge over River Seine where Groom Lorenzo’s romantic proposal transpired, the planning had begun. Of course, Paris, the French capital with its timeless glamour and glitzy nightlife, was easy to envision for her special day. Mademoiselle Nadine began planning the celebration to incorporate all things romantic, delightful, charming and magical to echo the ambience of Paris at night. The Couple’s combined love of French cuisine, music, lifestyle and the city’s magical tenor was the basis and foundation for the styling of their long-awaited wedding day.
