How to elope in Paris in the spring, at the most beautiful Art Nouveau cafe

Happy Monday, friends! Ever wonder how to elope in Paris… particularly in the spring? We shared our friend Janel’s Paris elopement many, many moons ago and honestly, we haven’t looked back since. Then there were these tips for getting married in Paris and a fashion designer’s chic French wedding. You can see why one might fall in love with the very idea, yes?

So when Janine of Janine Licare Photography sent these photos our way, of an elopement at the beautiful Poulette Restaurant in Paris, we had to get the scoop.

Janine tells it, At some point in time, any girl may dream of getting married in Paris. Nothing is more romantic than the idea of jetting off to France in the spring with your loved one, spontaneously getting lost in the winding streets, dining in eclectic cafes, and saying your vows in the City of Lights. Although these are all moments, they become memories that fuel a desire to return to Paris after having left. Hemingway said it best when he wrote: “Paris is a city, yes, but also an experience that one holds onto long after one’s Parisian visit has ended.”

The Art Nouveau movement was at the heart of their concept for this shoot. It was all about the idea that “no object is too utilitarian to be beautiful”.

From the floral embellishments on the high-top bar stools and the mini-floral arrangements adorning each wine glass, to the highly elaborate mosaics covering the cafe walls from floor to ceiling, every detail was purposeful and embodied this stylistic ideal.

Poulette is known for its Art Nouveau aesthetic—and they used the tiles as inspiration for their color palette.

The bride’s second look, a stunning two piece from Sylwia Kopczynska, had a lace long sleeve top and a layered lace skirt, for a more playful approach.

For the portraits, we started in the cafe, which embodies the side of Paris that is more spontaneous than the typical Parisian romance. We then explored the winding streets of the 2nd Arrondissement, keeping true to the authentic Parisian ideals that inspired the shoot.
