This Paris rooftop elopement wedding inspiration embraced the modern, laid back yet refined wedding vibes in the city of love, Paris. We’re so happy that it’s featured on Green Wedding Shoes and French most well-known wedding blog’s La Mariée aux pieds nus. 

This elopement wedding started with a little stroll, between the charming streets of Paris on the coolest Vespa. Afterward, the celebration continued with a bohemian Terra-Cotta-inspired dinner on the rooftops of the city. In the midst of the global pandemic, most couples have to rethink their wedding plans and arrange a more intimate, local celebration. In this blog post, as elopement photographer, we would like to inspire you with a modern and yet super chic & fun intimate wedding in the city of love.

Your Paris elopement can be fun, the rules are yours! Together with an incredible team, we were inspired by free-spirited couples who aren’t afraid to break the rules and celebrate in their love in their own way.

What is the schedule for this Paris elopement?

Our stunning couple begins their special day with their preparation photos at the hotel, which is located in a super hip area of Paris. Followed by a relaxed afternoon in Parisian cafés, strolling the streets with a romantic Vespa ride. Oui, and they end their elopement with a symbolic and intimate celebration overlooking the picturesque Paris views of Montmartre & Eiffel tower.

Our bride & groom

Our stunning bride wore a minimalist but yet sassy dress, elevated by gorgeous statement jewelry. And to top it up with a simple long veil, she wore white ankle boots, it’s just so “chic”. The groom didn’t opt for a traditional white chemise. Instead, a cool t-shirt, and yet he still is so elegant and composed in his linen suit. Both embodied perfectly the French “je ne sais quoi” touch, a style that is both classic and trendy but without any effort.

The rooftop setup for this Paris elopement

We were so lucky to have discovered this rooftop hidden germ in the city. Inspired by the colors of autumn in Paris, we designed this elopement in Terra-Cotta tones. Together with the floral arrangement in these strong colors, we combined with touches of blush from tropical flowers. Lastly, to complete this intimate wedding look, a mix of modern and refined decoration on the top of Paris – the most amazing panoramic views over the Eiffel Tower, and Montmartre. All were highlighted by the golden hour light. A dream cake, champagne, and love, what else do you need? The result was truly gorgeous and really magical.
