No matter where you wake up on the morning of your wedding, we hope that you’re able to have the luxury of time to enjoy each of your emotions, while being pampered as you prepare for the day itself. And of course, if you happen to be waking up in Paris as in this case, then we doubly encourage you to soak it all in, with soft robes, delicious pastries and coffee, and time for peaceful bridal portraits that your soon-to-be-husband will cherish forever.
Read on for more from the event planner and designer, Loli Events:
“We all know the wedding day is one of the more special days in a woman’s life. We have this dream in our head of the perfect dress, beautiful flowers, and a joyful event with all our family and friends.
As planners, we know that the wedding day can also be overwhelming and stressful, especially when it’s a destination wedding…there are so many emotions for a day that inevitably goes by very fast. That is why we wanted to show future brides that their wedding day doesn’t necessarily start when they walk down the aisle or during the “First Look.” This day should be special from the moment they open their eyes.
And what a better city to wake up in than Paris? We created this shoot to inspire brides to take time for themselves while getting ready. We wanted them to picture a beautiful room in a Parisian Palace, open the curtains and through the window, admire the City of Lights. Getting married in Paris is a dream come true, and brides should get the Paris excitement from the very beginning of their wedding day.
Brides should have time to relax and enjoy every second of this day by having a yoga session or a warm bubble bath. Then sit down with a nice cup of tea and some yummy pastries. How many brides don’t even take the time to eat on their wedding day? Taking the time will actually make you realize how precious this day is.
Getting ready to on your wedding day should be exciting, fun and amazing! Don’t miss a second of it.”

While we're always fans of weddings filled with beautiful, unique ideas so that we can show them to you, we know that not every couple is concerned about the small touches or has the budget to be able to do everything they wish they could. On this rainy wedding day in Oregon, the aesthetic focus was on the couple's amazing style, a beautiful stationery suite, and a dainty bridal bouquet -- and it's perfectly fine to leave it at that.
