Do low-maintenance and luxury have to be opposites?

While the traditional response maybe ‘oui,’ this next wedding leads us to believe the real answer is ‘non.’ The couple, Alexis and Joe, hailing from the beautiful Pacific Northwest – Seattle to be specific – artfully balanced themselves into that very cool place where luxury and low maintenance meet. They chose to wed destination-style with us in Paris, a very impressive city if we do say so ourselves. Set a continent + an ocean away, the location meant they would be sharing their day with just a small, intimate group of loved ones. And while they celebrated at the undeniably elegant Hotel Raphael, the couple was able to focus their energy into only one place by holding both the ceremony and reception within the hotel. On the day, the bride’s look, a gorgeous Vera Wang gown with a dramatic mermaid hem was juxtaposed perfectly against her loose, bohemian locks. Of course, well-chosen details and talented vendors like our forever glamorous photographer friends at One and Only Paris let the couple further relax and trust the outcome of their lovely&luxurious sort of day.
