Paris in autumn is absolutely beautiful, especially, it will be perfect for your elopement. The weather is not too hot nor too cold, and the light is fantastic! Planned by The Paris Elopement, Alena and Ben’s ceremony was held on the banks of the Seine near Ile Saint Louis – our favorite location. Followed by a walk through the charming streets of Paris and ended with a sparkling evening by the Eiffel tower.

First look moment

Story of Alena & Ben

“I remember clearly the first day I met you in the bar where I came with my friend. You were wearing a white t-shirt, you smiled, you spoke to me with your favorite British accent as I couldn’t speak French at that time, you surely made a couple of jokes and you were very kind to us. I remember that very special feeling that now I realize I can call “love at first sight”, because this is what really happened in March 2016. I would never imagine that day that 3 years and almost 6 months later we will be living together in Paris, riding our beautiful vintage green mini and dreaming so big about our future.”

“You are my dream that became reality, you are the men of my life and you are the right person which is so rare and precious to find.”

You might not have videography in your mind when it comes to your Paris elopement. While having a photographer is fantastic, however, having a videographer for your wedding will make it even more special. Imagine that you could listen again to the moments when you exchange your vows through the video. You’ll get to relive the emotions of that incredible moment forever on film.

Choice of color palette

Inspired by autumn, this elopement was surrounded by different tones of orange, brown, and red, set in the most romantic location of Paris. As the sun rises in the city of love, it creates such magnificent harmony that complements our couple during their ceremony. They wanted to have an officiant for their Paris elopement and followed by a moment of them sharing their vows together.

The florist combined perfectly the colors that represent autumn in Paris. Their ceremony floral design was simple with a touch of elegance. It also matches so well with the vintage mini car in green.
