How to get married in Paris

In 2015, Boston-residents Christina, a native New Yorker and psychologist, and
Jonathan, an attorney, found themselves on vacation in Paris. Behind the lens
of Le Secret D’Audrey
, the two lovebirds toured the city on a photo shoot to celebrate
their recent engagement. While breaking in a new pair of Manolo’s and snapping photos with her soon-to-be-husband, Christina had an idea, brighter
than the tower at night, “let’s get married here!”

First step was finding the right Paris Wedding Planner- they chose to get married in Paris with us at the wedding planning helm and we adored every minute of it.

A little over a year later, and this time with a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown
in tow, and a perfectly simple wedding day timeline, Christina arrived in Paris with her Mom. Shortly after, Jonathan followed with his parents - the guest list was complete! They were
married (by us)
on the terrace of their Shangri La Hotel suite with just
four guests. Prior to the ceremony Christina got ready in a stunning Parisian apartment that we sourced from an off-market agency and wore a handmade lace semi-couture bridal robe from designer Paolo Corona.

After the ceremony, they toasted santé with a classic coupe of pink
Ruinart champagne
and a small cake from Synie’s bakery. Their guests enjoyed the
Eiffel tower view while the newlyweds took couples portraits around the city
(again with Le Secret D’Audrey). They finished off the evening at Le Cinq with an intimate Michelin-star meal at the Four Seasons George V. A month later, to commemorate the day, the couple added a new member to their family - an adopted fur baby appropriately named “Georgie.” This is how to get married in Paris!

Words from the couple:
“Working with Luxe Paris was an absolute dream! Billy was able to translate our ideas and and vision into a memorable wedding day in Paris that reflected our style and personalities. Weddings can be ‘cookie cutter’ but working with Billy Folchetti as our Paris Wedding Planner proved otherwise.”
