An elopement in Paris is a bit of a dream for many Americans coming in Europe. Today it is the one of Ricky & Jess who have chosen to unite in Paris. After several proposals between the Eiffel Tower and the gardens of Notre Dame, the choice was the Luxembourg Garden.The Medicis fountain is really special, sheltered under the trees, a little far away, it is a place that inspires tranquility. The difficulty is to find a place without the public turning around and taking selfies. We are always sensitive, with Pierre, to take care of the location so that the bride and groom can be in their bubble. It’s a time for them and only for them.

The Parisian music stands are really typical with their hexagonal shapes, their metal structures and can only be seen in the gardens. Often used by Parisians for lunchtime or to do their gymnastics. So it takes a lot of luck to hear a group of musicians there. To stay in the typical places we have chosen to go on the banks of the Seine behind Notre Dame and in addition to making the journey in 2 CV Citroen.

Of course to finish, what could be more symbolic than the return to modernity with this superb mix of 2 eras and 2 architectures: the old Louvre and the modern pyramid. Play with the triangle, avoid people around it. Make the bride and groom dance.

A little jump to Bir Hakeim Bridge and finish the champagne in the car. Did you know that this car is a convertible? Enjoy the Parisian sky, be able to look at the Hausmann buildings, with your nose in the air, savour the bubbles and let yourself be carried away.
