There’s an undeniable presence about Paris that invites anyone who visits to shift the way they think and feel. Robert Black says it so well, “Every second in Paris is art.” No need to necessarily see all the tourist sites. Take a simple stroll along the Seine river and mingle with some of the local Parisians. Wander along the back streets and stumble into spontaneous musicians or eavesdrop on great conversations at a nearby cafe. Walk. Breathe. Take time. Caro and Ben did just that. Their adventure date began at sunset on the oldest bridge in Paris, Pont Neuf, meandered along the Seine river, snuggled in court yards by the Louvre and wandered through their favorite artsy neighborhood: Montmartre. Montmartre has a lovely view at the top of a hill overlooking Paris and carries a small village feel. Ending the night with views over Paris from the Sacre Coeur was was the perfect way to settle into their wedding events in Madieres at Chateau Zen in the south of France. Love is beautiful.
So meaningful being able to walk over the oldest bridge in Paris, Pont Neuf, and around the distant palaces: Conciergerie, Louvre and Place du Tertre. Our late-night adventure wandered along the winding streets to Le Petit Moulin and around the Sacre Coeur cathedral. Caro’s lovely skirt was from Free People and her dress from the amazing BCBG Maxazria.
