I travelled to Paris for a romantic trip with my wife and thanks to Pierre my trip was great! Not only Pierre is the CEO of Love Gracefully but he is also a true Parisian as he was born in Paris. I wanted to take my wife to Girafe restaurant where it’s impossible to reserve a table. But thanks to Pierre’ network, I was able to get a great table at that restaurant: he has great connections… I had the opportunity to talk to Pierre many times and I can witness that he is a man of his words: reliable, honest, open minded and very dedicated to make... people happy! Not only that but he has a great spirit and a french personality that makes him all that special. If you travel to Paris and do not meet with Pierre, you’ll miss out!read more

This is a long overdue review for our small wedding/elopement ceremony in Eze, France in August 2023. First and foremost, thank you so much to Love Gracefully, especially our wedding planner Jeremie. We decided on Eze, France as our wedding location and was blessed with Jeremie. From the very beginning he was there to help us along the way. Jeremie was quick and thoughtful with his responses. Any questions we had, Jeremie had the answers. Any recommendations, Jeremie had it. Any concerns, Jeremie reassured us. Coming from the States... (California) we needed someone we could trust and rely on, he was definitely that person. Jeremie was also our photographer, and I tell you, the photos are BEAUTIFUL!! There are so many amazing couples pictures we still have not been able to choose which ones to frame. Only thing that caused a headache on our wedding day was my makeup artist being late. That pushed back the ceremony, making it feel rushed. We didn’t get that extra 20-30 mins to take family photos/ enjoy the scenery because the garden was closing. But that’s not Jeremie’s fault what so ever. Overall, we had an amazing experience and when we look back on that day, we remember the love and happiness we felt. If we could, we’d relive that day over and over. It can be nerve recking planning a wedding in another country but doing it with Love Gracefully was the best decision we made for ourselves. Your wedding day is about you both, and Love Gracefully will help to make sure of it! Thank you a million, and maybe we’ll even be back for a vow renewal. :)read more

Love Gracefully orchestrated our October sunset wedding on the beach in Monte Carlo, and we couldn't be happier. From flawless planning to a heartfelt ceremony, every detail was handled with expertise and care. The officiant crafted a personalized ceremony that captured our love story beautifully, making our day truly unforgettable. If you're seeking a wedding planner and officiant dedicated to creating magical, stress-free moments, Love Gracefully deserves five stars for their exceptional service. Furthermore, if you are looking in the French... Rivera, Jeremie was not only extremely accommodating but made our day perfect! I don't remember our officiant's name, but he made our ceremony a time we will never forget, with fun and laughter, tears, special moments... we couldn't have asked for a better duo! Thank you both for making this day so special.read more

What a great experience! My husband and decided to get our wedding vows renewed in Venice. I looked at several places but after reading the reviews I decided to book with Love Gracefully. We had the opportunity to work with Paola and she did an amazing job with communication, arranging the transport to the location, flowers, the officiant and the photos! I was a little leery at first about sending a deposit overseas but Love Gracefully kept in contact through out the entire process which made me more comfortable. We were so pleased from start... to finish. We highly recommend Love Gracefully and Paola!read more

My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary in Rome with Francesca. It was AMAZING. She was so caring and honestly invested in our day. Our photographer and videographer were also fantastic. You can't go wrong with this group and Rome was the perfect spot for a ceremony.

We had an amazing a perfect wedding just the two of us in Paris, France. Pierre was our officiant and Stephen was our photographer. The pictures came out amazing, we chose to do our ceremony first at 7:00pm and finished taking photos by 10:00pm. We took pictures at around 5 different historical locations. car service provided was top tier. Sunset is a great time of day to do the ceremony. I did my own hair and makeup, and my bouquet was delivered to our hotel earlier in the day. Would highly recommend this company and already have a friend who... is going to book their wedding with love gracefully now as well. They did a great job at answering every single question in detail.read more

I have so much gratitude for the life I have: being of service to couples from all over the world! Looking into the eyes of the couples I marry while they share their vows is a magical experience and a real privilege.
