It wasn't a dificult job to make beautiful pictures of such a radiant bride. Even if the day began with a little misadventure, It became idyllic again very quickly. Sophie and Noam are an absolutely adorable couple, they were smilling all day long and they had good reasons for that... I wish them a lot of happiness.
Melissa wanted the circus to be the theme of her reception with that slogan : "Life is a circus, love is forever". The reception took place in the very classy "Pavillon Dauphine" in Paris. Melissa designed everything herself, she really could become a wedding decorator ! The only thing she didn't make herself was the fantastic wedding cake which was beautifully made by Sugarplum Cakeshop (congratulations by the way!). The candy bar was full of American sweets and peanuts, all the things I love !
Melissa is American and lives in Paris with Charles who became her husband last month. I knew as soon as I met them last year in my favourite bakery "Sugarplum Cakeshop" that this wedding was going to be unique. And It was even more wonderful than I expected ! This first part was shooted at Splendid Etoile Hotel in Paris which offers a magnificient view on the Arc de Triomphe. Melissa's bridesmaids were gathered here too, It was obviously a very emotional moment for Melissa to have her friends coming from so far away to share her beautiful day.
The reception took place in the magnificient castle of Quincampoix. The tables were beautifully decorated by Alicia herself. Everything was there to make a very classy and cosy wedding. Congratulations Alicia and Thomas !
I love every wedding I shoot for a different reason, among a lot of reasons I loved this one because of all the emotions there was, It was so obvious that this couple is crazy about each other that It was a real pleasure to shoot all this love (and tears...) between them. The first part is the ceremony, certainly the first time I was about to cry too behind my camera (hopefully I could hide myself behind It).
