It was such a joy to be a part of this magical elopement shoot in Paris! A huge thanks to Kristin Sweeting for bringing me along on this one! We loved the experience of sourcing flowers from local Parisian markets and were so pleased with how the details and color palette came together in a beautiful, unexpected way. I mean, the way the flowers and the dress perfectly coordinated with the colors of autumn in Paris is so perfect! And it's hard to beat having the Eiffel Tower in the background. To top it off, Sophie and Matthieu were absolutely adorable and hilarious and in love. (Don't miss our behind-the-scenes video about our time in Paris!)
When Keegan and Andy first contacted me, they shared that this quote was a large part of their wedding inspiration:
It was so much fun to meet with both of them and see their vision unfolding! They wanted their day to be comfortable and joyful, which they absolutely achieved--as you'll see as soon as you peruse these beautiful photos from The Image is Found. Andy is really into moss, so we incorporated moss into the succulent centerpieces as a personal touch. The cheery color palette complemented the glorious spring day at The Cordelle perfectly!
This has to be one of the most joyful couples I've ever worked with! Bailey took her inspiration from Marc Chagall's paintings of flowers, which was such a fun challenge for this former art student. (Please take 30 seconds to google Chagall if you're not familiar! Such beauty!) We used a variety of textured wildflowers in bright coral, peach, golden yellow, and red to mimic the paintings, then brought in pops of cornflower and deep blue anemones as a nod to the iconic Chagall blue.
The sweetest detail of the day, however, was that every place setting used a plate from HEAL Ministries, handmade by women in Uganda. In the middle of the reception, Bailey and Kevin donned aprons and hand washed every plate so their guests could each take one home! Such a beautiful way to begin their marriage with this act of service for their loved ones.
