Miranda + Jared | tour Eiffel Paris, France
April 3rd, 2019
It’s typical when building a business to create a bucket list of all the different things you want to accomplish. Shooting a wedding in Paris was definitely one of them. A lot of people know that Paris is a pretty special place for me - and even though it may sound “cliche” it really is a home away from home. I wasn’t sure I’d ever complete this dream of mine to capture a love story there…
When Miranda and Jared booked their wedding with me, Paris wasn’t a part of the plan. But after a few months of wedding planning, they realized a big local wedding wasn’t their dream. When I received the email of their change, and asking if I would join them in Paris, I actually fell out of my chair. Like. Actually.
A wedding. In Paris. Like, duh. Asking me IF I would like to join was a silly question. Not only did I love these two and how well we connected the first time I met with Miranda (ironically over macarons and champagne), but I LOVED that they were doing away with tradition and giving themselves the most epic and dreamiest adventure of a lifetime. Saying I Do to each other at sunrise in front of the Eiffel Tower. How many people get to say they did that?!
Leading up to the day, weather was all over the place. Something we were fairly used to living here in Washington. Although VERY cold, the skies opened up and we had the most beautiful sunrise. The sun glittered down on them right when they were putting rings on each other - it couldn’t have been a more perfect event to witness.
This really was everything and more. I cannot thank these two enough for bringing me with them to the most romantic city of all. I miss it every day. And hopefully I’ll get another chance to help tell another Paris love story again in the future.
Enjoy this darling and intimate elopement. Cheers.
