Real Wedding Description
Alyssa and Cyrus came from Vancouver, Canada, with their parents and friends to have a very intimate wedding in Paris.
Alyssa fell in love with Paris a few years ago when she was a student and it was obvious that one day she would come back to get married here. Her beautiful and simple dress come from Delphine Manivet, known for her unique vintage and bohemian style. They rented a nice white apartment in Paris allowing for a very friendly getting ready with people buzzing around. The Chapelle Expiatoire was the perfect place for an intimate wedding. It was a very powerful moment when everyone said a few words from their heart when saying the vows.
A old style car, a 2 cv Citroen, was waiting to give us a tour of Paris before a picnic organized by Blue bike. We planned to join up again in the Louvre to start a night session and what a surprise when I saw the family arriving on bicycle, so I organized a big ring around them to capture the “blue dream” (blue bicycle rounding the couple). There was a very nice moment at night when a little girl in a car wanted to kiss the princess. It’s one of my favorite weddings of this year.
