Back in Paris! We LOVE this city and the people and the beauty that is everywhere. The gardens and the architecture and the affection that you can witness between couples sitting at a café table.
Sheryl had been to Paris before as well and when she contacted us about her elopement with Richard that was planned for the Summer, we were ecstatic and could not wait to get working on travel arrangements and ideas for their wedding day.
Since they live in Australia, we used Skype to meet and chat and get to know each other and learn about their story and their desire to travel thousands of miles from home to be married at one of the most beautiful parks in Paris. They wanted us to come along so everyone back home could see what their day was like, the emotions that poured out and the fun and happiness that took over that day.
We had a blast and laughed and cried along with them as they read the vows they had written, tried not to tip in the row boats on a lake where we wondered if the driver they hired had left us or was just sleeping down the road out of site, clapped with the gathering crowd on the Ponts de Arts when they placed the lock that Richard engraved onto the railing and then, at the end of the night, when we all watched the sun setting and just had our eyes fixated on the Tour de Eiffel, we hugged and cheered and celebrated and stayed in the moment for as long as possible.
And then ate a crêpe with nutella and bananas and had some café crème! It’s a tradition!
We miss you guys and can’t wait to meet up again! Xoxo
