[Written by Asia Wedding Network Founder, Michelle Yuan] 

I’ve always wanted to do my prewedding shoot in Paris but never thought I’d have the chance to! Luckily, I was invited to speak at the Planners Extraordinaire Show in Lake Como, Italy which allowed my fiancé and I to make a quick stop in Paris to fulfil my prewedding dreams. The photoshoot was everything I imagined it to be and more, and even weeks after the shoot, it’s something I still dream about.

While I was at the Planners Extraordinaire Show in Lake Como, I met Jean Charles Vaneck, who founded Sumptuous Events, one of the top wedding planning companies in Paris. We met during breakfast the first morning of the conference and hit it off right away, immediately becoming friends. With his vast connections, he helped us to organize a photoshoot at the breathtaking La Suite in Shangri-la Paris. With an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower, the shoot was above and beyond everything we had imagined it to be. Besides that, we were also extremely lucky with the weather, it was warm and sunny with very clear skies.

I wanted something dreamy and soft. After all, we were in the most romantic city in the world! Our photographer, who lives in Paris, Laurie Lise made our vision come true, capturing the exact feel that we wanted - classic, dreamy, and elegant. Paired with Korean makeup artist, Reina Kim , who was able to create a soft and natural look, the duo worked really well together and above all, were kind and patient throughout the shoot.

Giorgia Couture was the designer behind the two dresses I wore during the shoot. They’re known for light and airy dresses which are ideal for destination weddings or overseas prewedding photoshoots, which was perfect for carrying around Europe. My Rose & Crown earrings matched perfectly with each look as I brought classic pieces that went well with anything. I was especially in love with the Meteor dress, a gorgeous periwinkle gown that had a circular, long, clean train. It went especially well with our style shoot session in one of Shangri-la Paris’s ballrooms, as well as the lobby and staircase area of the hotel.

When we arrived to the style shoot session, we were definitely more than surprised at what Jean Charles had set up for us. Using one of my favorite colors (lavender), he created something that was beyond our imagination of what a styled shoot would be! The table decor was so beautiful that my fiancé and I didn’t even want to leave after the shoot was over. It matched perfectly with the Meteor dress as well as the surrounding ballrooms, creating photos that were dreamier than ever.

The photography session at the lobby and staircase of the Shangri-la were captured unbelievably well by Laurie. The hotel was stunning enough already but the photos that Laurie created were stunning…and very dreamy! Only taking up half a day, the photo session was elegant, classic, and sophisticated, everything we had hoped for. I was blessed to have been able to work with such great talent for our prewedding photoshoot - they really do know how to make a girl’s dream come true!
