Ahhh… Paris. What could be more romantic? We’re all big Francophiles here at Junebug, so this stunning wedding at Sainte Germain’s Basilica of Sainte Clotilde and Maison des Polytechniciens has been making our hearts race! Grab yourself a cup of coffee (or glass of wine) and settle in to check out this post – you’ll want to dive into the images by K Hulet Photography and the planning details created by Fête in France, and absorb every beautiful detail!
From the bride, Suzanne: Looking back on the day it brings back wonderful memories. It was more than we could have ever imagined or wished for. To have all our loved ones, friends and family with us in Paris was truly magical! Paris has always been special to us as we spent some great times in the City of Light when we were dating. The city is truly one of the most beautiful in the world. We wanted to capture the architecture and mood of the city which we love so much.
Anne Mulvihill of Fête in France was the maestro in pulling the wedding together for us as we live in Ireland and could only get to Paris every few months prior to the event. With her expertise and contacts she pulled it altogether. She was wonderful! For that we will be forever grateful.
Our photographers Kevin and Katie – well, where do I start? From the first moment we met them we all just clicked. Our visions of what we wanted to catch on camera were very much in sync. They helped put Paul and I at ease from the time they showed up in the morning right through until 1am the next day! They worked extremely hard in capturing the atmosphere on the wedding. All my family and friends have been blown away by their talent, grace and sheer work ethic. We think the photographs really speak for themselves capturing the magic of the day. We are looking forward to seeing them in June as they are photographing my sister’s wedding too!
From photographers Kevin and Katie Hulett of K Hulet Photography: This destination European wedding was that of the beautiful Irish couple, Suzanne and Paul. I don’t know when we’ve laughed more, or been hugged and squeezed more than we were at this wedding. Imagine a crowd of the friendliest, happiest, loudest people–and then double it–and you’ll get an idea of this couple’s wedding celebration. On the night before the wedding the family met at a bar in Sainte Germain. It was a great celebration. The next morning the wedding day started off in Suzanne and Pauls right-bank apartment. Paul spent hours on the phone trying to find one with a view of the Eiffel Tower for Suzanne, who loves it so much. The Tower view was as amazing as you could imagine and right outside her balcony window. The chapel that they were married in was the Sainte Clotilde, in Sainte Germain. It was one of the most detail minded chapels that we have ever been to. After the ceremony we walked Paris and got some city shots and then on to La Maison des Polytechniciens, a very difficult venue to tie down in Paris. You have to either be an engineer or be related to an engineer of the place to even be considered. The venue had a downstairs club room/cave that was very cool and unforgettable, where the group ended the day. Anne and Nancy, of Fete in France did an amazing job on the details of this wedding.
