- Wedding: August 2012
I am new to posting on this board (although I have been poking around for a while!) but had to post after my recent experience.
My (now) husband and I decided to get married last year on a 12 hour layover in Paris! Crazy right? It initially seemed like a logistical nightmare, but luckily we found someone to help us organize such a feat.
Our wedding in Paris perfectly fit us! We wanted something very simple yet deeply meaningful and Pierre-Henri from Love Gracefully delivered just that! Being in California and having him there, familiar with the area/process, made us feel secure in our decision to marry in Paris. We had so many questions and his ease and promptness of answers confirmed our decisions. We were married on a layover to South Africa and Seychelles. The morning of our wedding, we arrived to our family at the hotel, quickly got ready and then were whisked away to the Eiffel Tower for the ceremony. When we met him that day I knew we had made the right choice… He was prepared, spontaneous, heartfelt and funny! Unexpectedly and as an added bonus, having him a part of our wedding made it easily possible to include the French culture into our personalized ceremony. Mostly, we appreciated his timeless flexibility in writing and preparing our ceremony…the words that were said that day were the most meaningful part of the entire wedding experience. Danny and I wrote our own vows, and my mother read a blessing. After the ceremony all of us toured the city in old french cars and we finished the evening in an amazing bistro with classic french food! Our family saw us off to our honeymoon that night! They stayed in Paris and celebrated, which they all claim was one of the most fun nights of their life! We are forever grateful to Pierre-Henri and we would be more than happy to answer questions for any couples planning a wedding in Paris or abroad!

The photographer he arranged recently sent us the pictures which prompted this post. So here are a few from the happy husband and blushing bride!
