i feel so honored to have been there alongside jina and christian as they were married, and i will always cherish this short and sweet trip to paris. this elopement was the perfect end to my 2013 year and am thankful for my brides and grooms who entrusted me to document their wedding day with my vision .. it’s an incredible honor and joy for me to make photographs for your wedding so thank you for choosing me.
jina and christian are featured on style me pretty‘s front page as well as their destination blog. i love what jina had to share about their elopement:
When Christian and I began planning our wedding, we knew we wanted our day to be simple, intimate and meaningful. Even still, I found myself burdened by the social expectations and conventions that come along with throwing a traditional wedding. At one point, I turned to Christian and said, “I wish we could elope to Paris.” His immediate response was, “Why can’t we? Let’s do it.” I was so touched by his openness and sense of adventure that, for the first time, I began to think that the wedding day we dreamed of was possible.
From there, everything fell into place in a serendipitous way. Choosing a dress became surprisingly easy. I eschewed traditional ball gowns as impractical for winter in Paris and instead selected a silk column gown that truly spoke to me with its sculpted clean lines and sense of restrained elegance. When the American Church in Paris told us that it was only available for the exact date and time that we were hoping for, we knew it was fate.Our wedding day was like the city of Paris itself: austere, lovely, and mysterious.
After a simple Protestant ceremony at the American Church in Paris, Christian arranged for us to be picked up by a vintage Rolls Royce to tour the wintry streets of Paris. Our dinner reception was held at the incomparable Four Seasons. Being in a foreign country made it easier for us to entrust ourselves to the moment and allow our wedding day to unfold organically. Some of our loved ones also made their way to Paris to celebrate our moment — a gesture that I will always treasure. As Ernest Hemingway memorably wrote, Paris is a moveable feast and the city will stay with us forever.
