Paris Rooftop Wedding Inspiration

Each and every time we see the magic of Paris through Le Secret d’Audrey‘s lens, we are captivated. Today’s gorgeous inspiration shoot takes place on the rooftop of the Printemps Haussmann, and there simply couldn’t be a more enchanting setting than above the stunning architecture of the City of Light! A beautiful sweetheart table and simple ceremony with gorgeous florals by Lily Paloma are set with panoramic, sweeping views of Paris from the Eiffel Tower to Montmarte. The soft gray and gold accents on the building’s cupola influenced the decor from the soft hues of the floral down to the delicate gold hair accessory. An A-line Rosa Clara couture gown with brocade details is sophisticated, especially when paired with soft, natural makeup and a chic pony styled by Harold James. And let’s not forget groom’s dapper Brummell tux and the towering multi-layer confection from Synie’s! We are spellbound by each image as captured on film by Le Secret d’Audrey!

Classic South Carolina Plantation Wedding

Laura and McLean were married on a gorgeous April day in South Carolina, at Pawley’s Island’s picturesque Litchfield Plantation. The historical home and its avenue of live oaks made a magical day even more beautiful. The couple enlisted the help of their two adorable pups to become a part of the bridal party! We can never resist a wedding with pets! Cricket Newman selected lavender and ivory blooms to accent the natural greenery of the surroundings, and the soft tone paired beautifully with deep purple Joanna August bridesmaids dresses and Laura’s Christos gown from Bridals by Lori. We love the classic, timeless feel in each of the images from Amy Arrington Photography!

    About Brittany:

    I build my business and style around the things that don’t change. Things that are “in fashion” now will always be replaced by the next trend. I focus on the permanent: your love, your family, your smiles, and all the things that make you, you.

    I am a film wedding photographer who shoots from the heart and strives to keep her photos simple, artful, and timeless. Brittany believe in bright, soft, colorful images and emotional black and whites that are clean and free from distractions. She likes to spend most of the wedding in the background and let you enjoy your day trusting and knowing that she is capturing every moment of it in the best way possible.

    I’m based in Portland, Oregon with my beau of 8 years, two cats named Copernicus and Dinah, and our crazy pup Emma-Lou. I’m the type of person that believes anything can be made better with good food, shopping, and a cold margarita on a beautiful summer day.

    Tuscany Villa Wedding

    There may be no more picturesque setting for Elinor and Adam’s romantic destination wedding than Tuscany’s Villa Di Corliano. The faded grandeur, trailing greenery, orange and lemon trees, and beautiful landscape made the most lovely backdrop for the June nuptials. The couple planned their wedding themselves, and enlisted Franci’s Flowers Florence to create elegant arrangements for ceremony and reception. A floral arch with burgundy peonies and pink roses was the altar for their vow exchange, and table centerpieces of coordinating florals were set in ornate gold chalices. We are positively spellbound by Elinor’s Grecian-style Jenny Packham gown from Lilya Grace. The bejeweled neckline is fitting for a princess! Transport yourself to Italy with the magical images from Stefano Santucci!
