We’re celebrating Paris today with a gorgeous elopement—kind of an homage to the City of Light. Aside from being completely smitten with Fabiola and Alan’s intimate wedding day on the streets of the most romantic city in the world, we can’t stop obsessing over the couple’s beyond-chic style choices. The bride’s custom high-neck, peek-a-boo lace gown is exquisite and the groom’s million-dollar-is the cutest accessory ever. Thankfully Tala Nicole Photography was there to capture all the beautiful moments (not to mention incredible scenery) of the day.
What made it special and unique?
What really made the day special was the fact that it was only Alan and I telling each other our promises in such a beautiful and romantic place as the Medici fountain. It was magic, and very intimate.
Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!
I had my dress made in Peru with a really talented and young designer: Pepe Torrejon; we met 4 months before the wedding and I told him some of the ideas that I had in mind and he made the design better than I could imagine!! He also gave me a beautiful drawing.
What were some touches added to make it personal?
I made special little books for the vows, were we could wrote them and then keep them forever. Also for the day of the ceremony I prepared a surprise dinner for Alan in the Eiffel tower, I made an invitation so it made it more special.
What was the most memorable part of the day?
The ceremony itself was memorable, but all the walking around the most beautiful places in Paris was wonderful. For me the most memorable part was hearing Alan’s vows, I didn’t expect such lovely words because he is very shy so that moment would be always on my heart.
Tell us how you met and became engaged.
We met 2 and a half years before the wedding, and serendipity is my favorite word to described the event. We saw each other one time for a work meeting but then we lost contact until one year after that when we met randomly in a gas station at 3 am after a party. We were never apart again; that’s why I described it as serendipity. We got engaged two years after we started our relationship; Alan was going to start an MBA in the US so he proposed to me, so we could move and start this new adventure together.
