Natacha & Alex
My last wedding of 2019, was such a great day. It was another lovely mixed culture wedding. Natacha, originally from China and Alex, originally from Spain, both live in France.
We started the day at Natacha’s parents home for preparations. The tea ceremony continued shortly after with family and close friends. It’s always so beautiful to see them respectfully share the moment with their parents in the morning of the wedding day. They display such appreciation and gratitude for all the years before leaving the nest.
We left to the city hall for the marriage and took some shots of everyone in the pretty garden.
The venue for the wedding ceremony was one hour from Paris. Natacha and Alex started right away to change and get ready. After some more preparation shots, we headed over to a gorgeous outdoor ceremony.
The ceremony was just magic! There were beautiful songs, speeches and so many emotional moments. They exchanged such adorable vows that they made tears in everyone’s eyes.
With the shorter days in October, we ran out of time to get bright clear photos for the couple shoot. So I decided to offer a second bridal shoot for another day so that they have some real nice couple photos. They were happy to have the images on clear day and so was I. So we did the photo shoot in two pretty locations last week, Bir-hakim bridge, which is one of the prettiest bridge in Paris and some more takes around the lake of Bois de Boulogne.
The rest of the night was a catered dinner by “Grand Chemin Traiteur,” it was just delicious. Then there were some surprises during toasts by good friends, followed by a couples dance that opening up the dance floor for the night.
It was a beautiful day full of emotion, you could see the love everyone had for Natacha and Alex. Happiness was in the air on this day of celebrating LOVE.
I wish you both a long happy life together. -S
