Yanique’s Picks: La Reserve

Another Parisian hotel that gives sensational view of the Eiffel Tower, La Reserve is intimate, private and luxurious. Instead of traditional hotel rooms, this hotel has ten apartments to choose from, each one unique, stylish and contemporary. Offering apartments with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, this hotel is perfect if you’re celebrating your elopement with family and close friends…

A Vintage Styled Paris Wedding.

Sometimes the videographer snaps photos, as Duncan Wolfe did here for our recent creative work in Paris.

What a way to end an awesome week – with our lovely couple R & L from Canada!

Not knowing where to start when looking for elopement tips or an English-speaking wedding planner in Paris, we clicked with the cool couple right away. And months of skyping and emailing finally came together with us meeting in person in Paris.

Many thanks to them for leaving us to the planning of their destination wedding in France.

More to come soon…xoxo
