If you’ve ever thought about having an intimate wedding abroad, Paris is most certainly a top choice. It’s the city of love and absolutely beautiful! Pierre Torset perfectly captured Emily and Leigh’s wedding in the September sunshine. The whole theme of the wedding was travel, which is quite fitting really!
We asked Emily how both she and Leigh envisaged their big day. She said, “Because we both wanted to buy a house soon after our wedding, the most important thing for us to was to have a reasonably priced, amazing wedding. After looking at the cost of a larger wedding at home in Seattle vs. a smaller wedding abroad, we quickly figured out we could have a wedding and honeymoon abroad for the same cost of a one-day wedding in Seattle. All we needed to do was convince our family and friends to take a European vacation, that began or ended in Paris for our wedding weekend. We had 19 guests for the weekend it was perfect. We knew everyone wasn’t going to be able to make it to Europe so we also planned a less formal party for a month after we returned to Seattle. It was the final step to the most amazing time of our lives, we got to share our wedding and honeymoon photos with all of our friends and family after we returned.”
What was your style vision? “After we chose Paris and our theme “Love Adventures”, we decided to go with a vintage theme. I chose three colors – pink, mint, and ivory to help guide our decisions otherwise you have too many choices for everything you try to plan. It all fell together and I was so happy with how it turned out.”
