California Couple Plans an Intimate Wedding {aka Elopement} to Paris, France

I'm thrilled to share with you today's real wedding as it's the first elopement I've ever shared on my blog. Today's couple, Samantha and Paul, opted for an intimate wedding as they wanted their wedding day to be about their love for each other, not about a wedding. Toni of Paris Weddings by Toni G. says that an elopement is the perfect solution if you're looking for less headaches from organizing an entire wedding. Toni has worked with the best in the wedding industry and has also been hired by major luxury fashion brands such as Michael Kors, DianeVonFurstenberg and even luxury automotive brand BMW. She now partners with The Paris Photographer 'Fran' {who photographed this elopement}, as it's someone who she admires for his amazing talent and looks to grow with together. His vision is to be the best couples photographer in Paris and Toni's vision is to be the best wedding and event planner in Paris.

PS: Samantha and Paul's wedding cost approximately $4,500 including flights, hotel, wedding attire, + photographer
