Stressing out about your big wedding? Elope to Paris.

Are you a private person, perhaps too shy or simply don’t want to add the attention of being the center of attention with too many eyes on your wedding day? I can help.

You know how many stressful “bridezilla” weddings I plan per year?


yes, a big fat zero. Oui cheri…

I share this not to criticize but to simply say that you don’t need to have a stressful typical wedding!

Take if from the wedding planner who started her first wedding planning company at 27 years (10 years ago!) doing large weddings. My first wedding was spread out in 2 locations, 2 days in Paris and had a little over 200 people. At the time I thought I loved it. Yes, it was a success but it was a continues level of stress that didn’t align with my values.

Overtime (well actually over 2 years in) I realized that big weddings were not for me. I crave intimacy, even in my work. And to be honest I also eloped so I actually always wanted to be more focused on “smaller” more stress-free weddings while keeping a strong focus on romance, aesthetics, and quality. At the time I did not know how to do it, but I gave it a shot and created Elope in Paris.

Fast forward, 6 years of running Paris’ first elopement planning agency and I can say that without a doubt I plan more intimate stress-free destination weddings each year, and they are fun too. My intention is strongly focused on the couple.

You, your desires, your day your way.

So maybe you were like me: where in the beginning you thought you wanted to do something big, then realized you prefer intimacy and experiences ( hello international travel!) over people pleasing?

Eloping can be a daunting process but I can help you make the first step. And another step, and another, until you’re here in Paris getting pampered and having the ceremony of your dreams with a magical view of the Eiffel Tower (and I may be live streaming for the family back home in the background …hahaha)

Or take a few of your family and friends – our biggest wedding package goes up to 60 people.

If you’re in the planning process of a bigger wedding and you feel like you’re losing yourself to please everyone else. Trust me when I say that once you make the decision to do what’s best for you, Paris and the Universe rewards tenfold! (wink wink)

I may be biased on this one ! 🤣🤗 but here’s the deal: you may be THE woman/couple that’s the best at DIYing just about everything, you have a Pinterest board for every room in your house…but if you’re eloping here are some reasons why I think you’re better off getting a planner. Relaxing and enjoying the pampering + experience ✨🎉😀 . . 1. LOCAL EXPERT: Someone local with previous experience will know the ins and outs of everything – and have probably solved more problems than you can imagine you could encounter. . . 2. REDUCES STRESS: It’s a détails oriented process that can be stressful and you also don’t want it to turn I to a stressful day. A good planner will know how to avoid or absorb anything stressful – so you just have to enjoy the day! . . 3. BUDGET EFFICIENT: Ok let’s talk about the financial investment – sometimes it not about saving money but rather spending wisely. A good planner will show you ways to not only save but refocus your budget to suit your intentions. . . 4. CULTURAL CONNECTOR: it’s not just the language that’s different. Don’t even get me started, but you don’t want to find yourself in a « faux pas » 😉 . . 5. PERSONAL CHEERLEADER – when I say that I’m here I mean I’m here. We’re a small team. I eloped so I know what it’s like from A to Z. We have a lot in common : loving travel, France, intimacy and stunning aesthetics. So yes, I’ll be your planner and concierge, to make sure that you enjoy not only the day but also the time in Paris! . . If you’re hesitating send me an email or DM so we can talk 🤗😘 #elopeinparis #youdeservethis #paris #pariswedding #destinationwedding
