The purpose of an elopement in Paris is to do as you please. You don’t have to act a certain way. You are free to do whatever you feel like. And Jess’ choice was to wear a leather jacket on top of her wedding dress. Even though it might not be your choice, my point is that Jess was free to do as she pleases. And if you do a wedding at home you won’t be able to do as you please. Why? Because, you’ll have to obey the rules of your community. Those rules may work for you but they may not.
And the fact is that this is your wedding: You should be able to wear what you want to wear, say what you want to say, bring the God of your understanding if you have one, invite who you want to invite. So, there you are; imagine yourselves in Paris, celebrating your Love, your way. With total freedom to do as you please. What would it be for your ceremony? You want a roof top location overviewing the entire city? You want to be in a garden right in front of the Eiffel Tower? You don’t want any guests? You do want guests? You get my point? If you come to Paris, please dare dreaming 🙂
Some couples enjoy going to Vegas to get married in front of the Eiffel tower there. But, if you have to fly all the way to Vegas to elope in front of a fake Eiffel tower, why don’t you do as Jess & Ricky and fly to Paris to kiss in front of the real Eiffel tower? It’s more or less the same flight, it’s more or less the same price, so what is holding you to take that one extra step and cross the Atlantic to meet the real Eiffel Tower? With real french people? Vegas has a lot of potential, it’s a fun and vibrant city but no one speaks english with a french accent! You’ll find Casinos in Vegas where as you’ll find great French restaurant in Paris. You’ll have great time in both cities but Paris will take you to another level. It’s architecture, it’s vibes, it’s art of life, it’s fashion, it’s food will be a dream coming true. Dare dreaming, we’ll make it happen!
The purpose of a Paris elopement is to do as you please and to have fun. Jess & Ricky wanted a photo session in front of the Eiffel tower but also at the Louvre because they love art. They also wanted to ride those little funny 2CV old french car for their photo tour as it’s a very iconic way to drive around Paris. The traffic in Paris can be a nightmare so the idea they had was to make it a fun ride. And a 2CV car provides just that: travelling from one point to the other but, also, travel in time!
