An American Couple in Paris.

8/13/2012


In 2009 my sweet friends Scott and Rema went to Paris. And got married. Actually what they did was one day they got dressed up. They hired a photographer. They walked all over the city. And said their vows to each other in the Jardin du Luxembourg. By themselves. Isn't that the most romantic thing ever? When they came home they officially tied the knot at the courthouse in San Diego, but they celebrate their anniversary on the date of their Parisian wedding. An official document is important, but then again it's hard to compete with an evening in Paris alongside the love of your life.

Here is their amazing photographer. And here.

Now that's my idea of a wedding! The boyfriend is a bit of a traditionalist and has already said he wants a Catholic wedding but I'm hoping maybe I can convince him to make that a Catholic wedding in France or Italy! We're not even officially engaged yet so we'll see... ha! :)

So romantic!!! Love the idea of them just saying their vows to each other in the Jardin du Luxenbourg and then return home and tie the knot officially. Pure awesomeness.

That is super romantic and reminds me of the time my boyfriend and I were in Paris together. I'll never forget it..I feel like every couple should go to Paris at least once!
