An Intimate Paris Elopement

"Some couples decide to elope to keep things private, and other couples like Jessie and Yuchen want both the intimate and the big celebration! After a civil ceremony in their home town of Seattle with their parents, the couple eloped in Paris to spend time together, just the two of them, in the City of Love. They returned to the US and are planning a large reception for next fall.

The couple chose Paris for its romance and elegance and because it was where they had gotten engaged the year before. Since it was just the two of them, they privatized an intimate ballroom full of Parisian decorative details: gilded walls, crystal chandeliers, and a beautiful marble chimney mantle. Their ceremony took place in front of the decorated mantle just before sharing a gourmet French dinner together."

This Paris elopement is just to die for.
