Paris in May


As you guys know, we went back to Paris last month to get married! After getting engaged there, it just seemed like the thing to do. There will be a whole post about our wedding headed your way soon, but I wanted to create one about the trip, too! I know these are out of order, honeymoon, paris, wedding but we've been traveling and I needed to have our professional pictures come back before being able to do a wedding post! Since we decided to have a tiny wedding, I wanted to share these with everyone who was not able to make it!

For this trip, we stayed at our wedding venue, which was the Westin Paris Vendome. We LOVED it. They were extremely helpful, kind and our room was amazing. We chose the Jr Suite with Eiffel Tower Views and it was better than we even had hoped! Neither of us had ever been there before so we were hoping for the best and it did not disappoint.

These gorgeous built-ins were in our bedroom part of the suite.

This was our view at night from the huge open windows.

This was the stunning view from the couch where I watched the Eiffel Tower sparkle at every chance - my dream view to be honest!

Angelina Paris

The hotel just so happened to be off the Rue de Rivoli and the block next to my all-time favorite, Angelina! We came here after we got engaged to have a peaceful breakfast before we told anyone the news so it was great to be back.
