We met our coordinator, Paola, and our officiant, Pierre, at Campo del Ghetto Nuovo. We then had a pleasant walk to our gondola. Pierre's relaxed, friendly demeanor helped me feel ready for the wedding ceremony. We all traveled along the quiet inner canals in a beautiful gondola for the poetic reading of our vows. It was timed perfectly so that we turned out into the Grand Canal, just as we were pronounced husband and wife and it was time to kiss my bride! My bride loved the ceramony too, and her bouquet had so many beautiful flowers!... Everything was very well organized and easy for us. We also really appreciate the beautiful pictures Paola took of the ceramony! Thank you so much Love Gracefully!!read more

The Love Gracefully team did an extraordinary job planning and orchestrating our wedding ceremony in Bellagio, Lake Como! Thanks so their expertise, the planning for us was very simple and allowed us to enjoy the day instead of worrying about details. Communication was superb throughout the planning and on the day of the wedding, and everyone involved from the planners, photographer, and videographer were lovely to work with and it made it an honor that they were part of our special day. Living in the United States and getting married in Lake... Como, it was a perfect ceremony, and couldn't have been possible without Love Gracefully!read more

Jeremy was wonderful for work with and we are thrilled with the photos. They made our day hiccup free and memorable. Our elopement in Monaco was a perfect one. From start to finish it was an easy planning process and Jeremy answered our numerous questions through out it all. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding.

We used Love Gracefully for our small ceremony in Lake Como, Italy and our expectations were absolutely blown away! Throughout the whole process there was constant communications, information, prices, and pictures. It was nerve wracking to plan a ceremony across the world and unseen location but our coordinator Guilia was incredible throughout the process! This was the wedding of our dreams and couldn’t have been possible without Love Gracefully! Thank you!Holly & Billy

***Best elopement/wedding service we could ask for*** Book it! 10/10 recommend.We chose to elope in the French Riviera (chateau Eze) after countless hours of online research and photo browsing. We could not be happier with the results. Jeremie and his team were amazing, prompt, well prepared and made our wedding experience cherished and memorable. They took the guess work out of planning and specially curated an even out of a storybook!I sent my Pinterest board as inspiration and they made it come to life before my eyes.

The ceremony was absolutely beautiful, the location and details were perfect. The pictures turned out better than we could have imagined. I highly recommend using Love Gracefully for your ceremony, you will not be disappointed. We are so happy with how everything went, no detail was overlooked.

We were amazed and impressed with the amount of care and attention Love Gracefully, specifically Paula put in our plan, details, and overall ceremony for our elopment package.Trying to find an emlopment package from California (USA) in Venice Italy is difficult; especially a reputable company.I would reccomend Love Gracefully and especially Paula to anyone. Paula acted as our photographer and cordinator and her pictures were perfect and beautiful and she made my and my wife's day amazing.Her attention to detail and editing were perfect... and superior quality.This is the the company to work with if you plan on having a perfect elopment with your future spouse!!!read more

Very happy with the service from love gracefully. I was always abit sceptical from the beginning as I’d only spoken with Lorrena and Bibiana online so I wasn’t sure if it was just a scam but it all turned out good in the end! So glad we decided to use them. Was a very easy process they literally done everything for us which is exactly what we wanted. We got married at cap de formentor in Mallorca and I honestly didn’t know Mallorca had such incredible views! Far exceeded my expectations. So if you are the same as me and you are abit sceptical... about it, I’d say go for it, it worked out perfect for us in the end. Also the photographer abraham was also very good we were so happy with our pics.read more

We recently eloped in Southern France instead of a big traditional wedding in Canada. At first we were nervous but Jeremie and the team at Love Gracefully are truly amazing! The communication throughout the planning was great, anytime we had a question or modification Jeremie was always available to answer. The day itself was magical and we couldn’t have imagined our day any other way! 10/10 recommend using their services!

Love Gracefully exceeded our expectations with our vow renewal ceremony at Chateau Eza in the breathtaking medieval village of Eze, France. We initially contacted Love Gracefully in 2023 about renewing our vows for our 25th anniversary. We were connected with Jeremie Bertrand who is the French Riviera coordinator. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Jeremie in planning our vow renewal ceremony. He helped organize everything for our vow renewal from the makeup/hair artist, flower bouquet arrangement, the officiant presiding over the... ceremony and the photography. We had the most beautiful, memorable and perfect vow renewal ceremony that we could have ever dreamed of on the French Riviera thanks to Jeremie and his team. We HIGHLY recommend working with Love Gracefully when planning a vow renewal ceremony, elopment or wedding. We are so thankful and grateful to Love Gracefully for making our day so very special.read more

We eloped on Lake Como, Italy and our experience was absolutely incredible. Giulia Ruspi was our coordinator. She was very knowledgeable, helpful, and communicative during the entire process. It took away all the stress of planning and made our time so enjoyable. Our photographer Federica and videographer Alessandro were very kind and professional. We ended up with the most beautiful footage that we will cherish forever. Thank you to all of the staff at Love Gracefully. My husband and I had the experience of a lifetime.

Love Gracefully was absolutely, without a doubt THE BEST way to go in planning an international wedding. We are so grateful for the services that were provided and will try to put into words just how wonderful you made our special day. Lorena, thank you! Lorena was always available, quick to respond, and made us feel at ease throughout the whole planning process. Planning a wedding in Paris from our home in California was stressful at first, but not after we enlisted the services of Love Gravefully. Lorena is so talented and everything went so... smooth. We were able to plan everything exactly to suit our needs and budget and are still overwhelmed by how seamlessly the process went.We did a rehearsal picnic the day before the ceremony and Julien, who turned into one of the most esteemed guests at our wedding, was able to come to for a few hours of photography. Every single one of our wedding guests is still talking about how wonderful, professional, and friendly Julien was throughout the entire event and our hearts are so full to know such an amazing human being. Julien we cannot thank you enough and hope you stay in contact and come visit California. Not only did Julien shoot the rehearsal picnic better than we could have imagined, the day of the ceremony would not have been the same without him. His knowledge of Paris, photography, and people in general is so impressive that if you can request him and he is available we highly reccomend it. He sent us sneak peaks of pictures the day of each event, and the pictures are so incredibly beautiful it is hard to describe. Julien knows the best spots and his artistry is unmatched even compared to all the photography we studied online and Pinterest. We cannot say enough amazing things about Julien.In other amazing services provided, Wallace and his beauty team are also unmatched! We had 8 women and 2 little girls in our wedding party and Wallace showed up with a team that would put Paris Fashion Week to shame. The team was so professional and talented and this is another favorite memory that myself and guests are still gushing about. The hair and make-up was impeccable and again I recommend requesting Wallace and his amazing team if they are available.Not to forget Pasquel! Pasquel was the hilarious and super-skilled driver who drove us and Julien around to take pictures before the ceremony. We are still obsessing over the 1957 Rolls Royce that made us feel like royalty on our wedding day. Not only was the car absolutely gorgeous, but Pasquel and Julien made the experience so much fun and we also learned so much from them while driving around. This was another truly indescribable highlight and if you can book Pasquel, we highly reccomend him too! I wish I knew the names of the florists, because again the outcome was gorgeous and we are so grateful!If you are planning an international wedding in any of the areas that Love Gracefully provides services, we highly recommend working with them! Words cannot describe how professional, affordable, and unbelievable the outcome of our wedding was. Our wedding plan was truly tailored and customized to suit our needs and it went off without a hitch! The team behind Love Gracefully is a cut above the rest and from the bottom of our hearts we give our most sincere gratitude.read more

We used Love Gracefully for our 30th year anniversary in Paris. We loved them so much that we chose them AGAIN to help us celebrate our 40th anniversary wedding vows -- this time in Venice! EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING was well planned. It started with the selection of the site where we wished to renew our vows. Then they assisted us with the process of the vows themselves helping us to make the ceremony ours! Flowers, video, pictures, drivers, complete logistics -- everything was perfect -- they even planned an after-ceremony... gondola ride for us in the Venetian canals! Trying to plan a vow renewal service in a foreign country can be daunting. Do not let that scare you because Love Gracefully took great care of us. They offer incredible service and are well worth the money. We will definitely use them again! They made us feel so special because they knew the occasion was too special for us to be done wrong.read more

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

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
