A Springtime Paris Elopement at Parc des Buttes Chaumont

Paris is always a good idea,” but Paris in the spring is maybe the best idea. I spent an entire day adventuring around La Ville Lumière with Sabrina and Vinny last year; dropping our jaws when things worked out better than we expected, and laughing a whole bunch when things went completely wrong. It’s adventurous spirits like these that take everything life throws them, adding it to their storybook with a wink and a smile, that make me beam the whole journey home.

A couple weeks ago these beauties welcomed a baby girl into their lives, and will be ringing in their first year of marriage next week. These two are going to kill it at parenthood. And what better way to celebrate your anniversary than to feel your hearts expand beyond anything you thought imaginable?
