Veronica & Mason

HEARTBEATS OF US IN PARIS

THE EARLY AUTUMN ELOPEMENT
OCTOBER 2023

THE LOUVRE SET

Meet Veronica and Mason, a couple born in Virginia who recently made the move from Virginia to the charming city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This NBA-loving duo finds joy in attending basketball games, exploring new cuisines, and simply reveling in each other's company doing absolutely nothing.

The problem? They decided to have a small wedding because they didn't want the stress of a big ceremony. They preferred a simple trip to the courthouse and then a cool Europe vacation to celebrate. Veronica said: "We knew we didn't want to go through the stress of planning/coordinating a large ceremony. Neither Mason nor I are huge fans of being the center of attention. We are much more casual and nonchalant about large milestones such as our wedding. Therefore, we decided we would go to the courthouse to get married and rather than through a wedding, we would plan an extravagant Europe trip to celebrate".

The solution! Veronica and Mason's dream day happened at Tuileries gardens during sunrise, just the two of them, no guests. It was a stress-free planning journey over three months, thanks to our all-inclusive elopement package from Paris Elopement Package.

ELOPEMENT STYLE

For their wedding style, Veronica said, "We want something simple and romantic, a bit rustic but modern."

 

Veronica rocked a super sexy bridal look. Her hair was all twisted up in this adorable, slightly messy updo that gave off major "I woke up like this" vibes. It was the perfect mix of chic and carefree. And can we talk about her bouquet? It was a burst of blue awesomeness! Textured with all sorts of playful flowers, it was like a work of art you'd find in a funky garden. She got her bouquet at a Paris floral store the day before.

Perfect hair and makeup by Yana included in the package

The dress had these lace details that made it pretty, and the back of it was like a fancy train that followed her around. Veronica looked awesome, like a movie star at her own party.

 

Veronica's bridal look was the perfect mix of fun and flirty, just like her love story with Mason.

Mason is wearing a blue suit

Mason kept it sharp and stylish in a classic blue suit. The suit was the kind of blue that's just right – not too serious, but not too flashy either. It matched the whole vibe of the day, making him the perfect match for Veronica's cool bridal look. Together, they are a power duo.

Details Veronica prepared

We do not offer any props so the couple prepared them in advance. What Veronica ordered online a month before their flight to Paris: blue vow books to match the theme, a Tour Eiffel card, and a bouquet ribbon.

The day before the elopement, the couple got macarons at a local bakery.

THE BIG DAY PLAN

The timeline we planned for the couple 2 days before based on the latest weather forecast:

8AM - CALLING FOR TAXI
8:30 AM - MEETING WITH OUR PHOTOGRAPHER AT TROCADERO
PARIS PHOTOSHOOT

The morning of Veronica and Mason's Parisian adventure kicked off at 6 AM with makeup in the cozy confines of their hotel. At 7:30, it was all about slipping into that stunning dress and getting ready for the big day. By 8 AM, they were waving down a taxi, heading to the iconic Trocadero where they met their photographer Sou. The next hour was filled with laughter and love as they captured the magic of their relationship against the breathtaking Paris backdrop. At 9:30, they strolled into the enchanting Tuileries gardens for their intimate ceremony, surrounded by the soft glow of the morning sun. By 10 AM, they were on their way back to the hotel, wrapping up a whirlwind morning that marked the beginning of their beautiful journey as a married couple.

We planned the day early morning to avoid crowds of tourists. Here is a backstage sneak peek from the photoshoot:
