An Intimate Elopement in Paris, France

Paris elopement

Sophia and Bert were together for nine years before deciding on an intimate elopement in Paris for their destination wedding.  Enlisting the help of the team at WeddingLight, the couple had beautiful photographs captured of their wedding day.

“Their day, (which is actually their anniversary of getting together) began at the apartment rue Notre Dame des petits champs in the heart of St Germain des prés, with getting ready and some shots by our photographer, Olivier Lalin from WeddingLight Paris.”

“They then hopped into their chauffeured car to their ceremony location, the gorgeous Chapelle Expiatoire in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. It is one of our favorite ceremony venues and is quite a gem of a location!  As they entered and walked the gravel path into the chapel, there was a violinist to follow and welcome them as they entered and met their officiant. Then, after taking some great photos on location, Olivier took Sophia and Bart a photo tour through Paris to finish their lovely day!”
