It was love at first sight at the supermarket in 1991 in the Netherlands. We got married on August 24, 1994. 25 years later we decided to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary in Paris for a few reasons. Firstly, being grateful for 25 years of married life. In 2018, my husband had a brain hemorrhage and we are grateful for his second chance in life. And we were extremely happy to invite our best friends forever who were our bridesmaids and groomsmen at our wedding 25 years ago to celebrate it with us in the most romantic city in the world — Paris.
Engagement goals: “Isaac learned how to ride a bike earlier this year for the first time. He learned because he knew that I wanted to ride bikes together through the city. He actually bought a bike and started practicing every afternoon so he could be ready to bike with me for our trip, it was super sweet and thoughtful. So the afternoon we spent biking around the city was definitely a highlight.”
This was the vow renewal dream come true for Mehek and Lokesh who, seven years earlier, had a very traditional Indian wedding. They said they felt like they were living their own Bollywood dream by renewing their vows in Paris. You’ll definitely want to see the bright pink details and a fabulously detailed bouquet. They toasted with rosé champagne and ate cake on the Champ de Mars after the ceremony.
Ariel and Lucas blew us away with their straight-from-a-movie glam Paris elopement. With chic outfits, a gorgeous Parisian day, and a proposal story that will leave you breathless, I can’t wait to share this wedding with you.
We got the details from the couple themselves…
A wintry wedding in Paris with ice skating in the Grand Palais? Can you even stand it? Well, get ready for even more shivers and giggles when you hear how they started off their end-of-vows kiss, how the groom enthused about the joys of marriage (oh, and how he consented to being married!). There are origami cranes, gorgeous Parisian views, and the sweetest little couple ever.
Let’s travel to France for, oh, just a little ol’ wedding in a ski lodge in the Alps. It’s complete with cheese-laden catering, a hot chocolate bar, and geeky Star Wars details to make sure that we’re all over this. Your foodie/geeky/dream vacation is here in wedding form, my friends. As if you needed any more temptation, you’ll want to see how they picked their honeymoon destination and how the bride gets everyone’s attention for her speech!
