Happy Valentine’s Day | Winter Wedding in Paris

Feb 13, 2018

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I am over the moon excited to share Christina & David’s romantic, festive and red winter wedding in Paris!

When Christina and David came to me with their idea to have a wedding where their guests would be treated to a once in a lifetime gourmet dinner in Paris, I jumped at the chance to make their wedding dreams come true! The Seattle based couple chose the day before New Years Eve to celebrate in art deco style by privatizing a Michelin starred restaurant in Paris for their intimate fireside ceremony, champagne cocktail and 6-course dinner reception.

We chose modern décor elements that complimented the look and feel of the magnificent restaurant space and its cozy {there were no less than 3 fireplaces!}, chic and playful design. The couple had their ceremony on the covered garden terrace in front of a fireplace dripping with foliage and flowers.

The bride walked down the aisle in a fabulous dress that she herself designed {cape and all!} to “Somewhere Only We Know” by Keane, which was played by a live violinist and classical guitarist. We chose a burgundy, dusty blue and ivory color palette for the romantic floral design, custom designed menus and place cards and plenty of candle light! We added a touch of DIY by individually wrapping the guest favors {macarons from Ladurée} in ivory paper, dusty blue velvet ribbons and signature wax seal. 

The couple and their guests sipped champagne and enjoyed a 6-course gourmet meal, which included wine pairings with every course. In keeping with the burgundy theme, only wine from the Burgundy region was served. As a surprise to the couple, the evening ended with a beautiful all white wedding cake, which was illuminated with sparklers!
