Good morning! We are in full swing here at FAB and are still swooning over the Rime Arokady dresses we featured yesterday. Keeping it French, we are delighted to share this beautiful engagement shoot with you today! Set in Paris, you actually won’t see any famous landmarks today – that’s no Eiffel Tower, no Pont des Arts and no pictures of Stan and Cecile in front of the Louvre. That’s because Stan and Cecile are locals and although we don’t normally feature non destination focused sessions, the streets of La rue des Thermopyles were just too pretty to leave behind in our inbox. A totally different and fresh perspective of the city of lights for us and an utterly adorable couple too, all captured with magic by Montreal based destination wedding photographer, Emilie Iggiotti.

“Stan and I met 7 years ago in Montréal where we both studied Business. About 3 years ago, Stan got a job opportunity in Paris, so we decided to move back to France, our home country. In July 2011, Stan organised a surprise week-end away in Brussels. I was really excited to visit Belgium and to be away from Paris, not at all expecting what was coming! He proposed on my birthday making it a memorable day. After his proposal, we had to book a venue very quickly as we wanted to get married the year after. We wanted to get married near Paris, so that friends and family from all over the world could make it to our wedding easily. After visiting quite a lot of venues, we ended up falling in love with La Grange de Bourgoult, in Normandy, for its surroundings and beautiful setting. Our wedding preparation was so much fun and made so much easier with the help of our mothers, close friends and family. We are so thankful to have been so well surrounded and to have had so many talented professionals at our side to make our wedding day so special. “

Ah! There is nothing like a Parisian engagement! Cuteness! Maybe, if we are all lucky, they will share their wedding photos with us too. Watch this space. I need to buy me a polaroid camera, they look like a lot of fun. Have a great day peeps!
