Becca_Clement_V1_0307201308I just love weddings. I haven’t been to many, um only two, but I just love seeing people in a full blown cloud of happiness. So much happiness. I love the idea of people getting together with all of those that they care about, and engaging in something extraordinary. It’s so exciting, don’t you think?

In France there’s a pretty snazzy tradition of going to your neighborhood town hall to get married before, or around the same time of, your wedding if you choose to have one. It’s an important little rendez-vous that your family and close friends can join you for, and is often followed by a little celebration. It’s also the moment you get the ever-so-golden livret de famille that the French bureaucracy finds to be so important. But enough about that blabbering, let’s take a gander at this beautiful couple.

This special day in Paris was for my friend Becca and her beau-turned-hubby, Clément. I was so flattered to get to come and shoot some pictures of them on their special day.

Becca was wearing her mother’s wedding dress which I just thought was fantastic. How adorable are these two?

Sasha's Bridal Shower - De quelle planete es tu  19Last Sunday I went to the most lovely bridal shower for Sasha.

This special afternoon was filled with giggles, flowers, yummy treats and all things girly.

This particular day was also the warmest day in Paris since last September, and it really felt like Spring was actually here. The air was clear and everyone seemed so much more awake.

With a dreamy view of that big tower and some familiar faces*. we cheered our coupes of champagne rosé to love, the future and the adventures to come for the bride to be.

From the lace to the ribbon to the macarons… precious as can be. I love being able to see the joy shine out of people’s faces like sunbeams. It was one of those days, filled with those kind of moments.

Wishing all of the best to Sasha for her marriage and her future.

A special thanks to the lovely hosts, for putting on such a marvelous event.

As tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, I wanted to post these lovely photos that Jean-Laurent took of Louis and I a few weeks ago. It was what he calls a “Love session”. He has a talent for capturing beautiful candid moments. And gosh I am so happy with how they turned out!

It’s hard to get some seemingly natural shots as sometimes it’s awkward to show PDA in front of a camera, eh? We did our best.

I really like these pictures because they were taken in our apartment. In our own element. With our stuff. It felt so much more natural, and so much more true.

I love love.

Happy Valentine’s Day.
