Magical Elopement in Paris

Aside from Maggie’s gorgeous Vera Wang mermaid gown, I absolutely adore that the bride’s bouquet was found at a local flower shop in Paris. Doesn’t it seem so French to visit a flower shop the morning of your wedding and pick out a bouquet? Love. Fabulous photos by Julianne Berry Photography.

Says Maggie, “Steven and I met in high school my junior year, he was a senior. We dated for 10 years before we tied the knot. Initially we were planning a wedding back home, but while planning it we were getting too stressed […] Then one day, we decided we should elope. Steven came up with eloping to Paris and I loved it.

The idea of getting married in the City of Love seemed liked a fairytale come true! We discussed it with our parents and they loved the idea as well and decided to come along with us.

The first thing we decided to book was our photographer. I googled ‘best photographers in Paris’ and ‘elopements in Paris’ and Juliane Berry Photography came up. I did some research and contacted her right away. Next thing you know, we had our photographer booked. This made things real! For the next few months, we focused on booking the hotels, flights, looking for my wedding dress and his suit. 

May came sooner then you know it. We got married on May 5, 2013, in the Jardin des Tuileries. I wore a gown by Vera Wang, White Collection and Steven wore a Zara suit with Aldo shoes. The veil was made by my mom and the bouquet of tulips we found at a local flower shop in Paris. 

Everything went perfect the day of the wedding. The weather was great, the trees were blooming with cherry blossoms and the tulips were amazing! Everything about that day was perfect but most importantly our families were there with us to share a really special day.”

Is there anything more romantic than eloping in Paris?! Congrats Maggie and Steven! And thanks to Julianne Berry for sharing these amazing images. Truly magical, don’t you agree?
