The submission comes to us from Jeanine Thurston Photography, who happened to be in France when Laura & Matt decided to elope. Here is what she had to say about this couple's lovely elopement:
Laura and Matt from Denver, Colorado were married in a very last minute destination elopement on May 3rd, 2013 in France. They traveled to France because they knew I was over there for a couple weeks photographing for other clients, so in 3 short months planned a wedding there. A wedding in Paris was Laura's dream. They flew into France on May 1st which is French Independence day - a day when everyone passes out Lily of the Valley flowers on the street.
We traveled the Paris Metro that day - starting with her wedding at Notre Dame Cathedral, then onto the Eiffel Tower, and finishing up at The Louvre museum.
Please enjoy Laura & Matt's Parisian Elopement, captured by Jeanine Thurston Photography:
Oh, merci, merci! This is just what I needed. How lucky for these two, to be able to marry in Paris!
Did you notice the "love lock", with their names on it? This is a trend that couples are doing when in Paris and various cities throughout Europe. They put their names onto a lock, and lock it up to a bridge where walls have been dedicated for this purpose. If you and your spouse-to-be are planning to honeymoon in Paris, be sure to add in a lock to your suitcase to leave your mark!
I love it that Jeanine photographed the pair on the metro, by the way! Seeing the accordion player serenade them is a great memory to have captured for them.
Thank you so much to Jeanine Thurston Photography for sending this our way!
