Christelle and Julien’s elegant vow renewal was featured in the Spring/Summer 2021 issue of MunaLuchi Bride Magazine!
Christelle and Julien’s intimate and dreamy vow renewal in Paris was the epitome of elegance and class. They first met sixteen years ago in Martinique and developed a strong friendship that turned into a beautiful and trusting relationship. Julien proposed to Christelle on his birthday in the presence of family and friends.
Their wedding, organized by Anaïde, wedding planner extraordinaire of Indirihya, was held outside of Paris in the Yvelines. Anaïde incorporated the fun-loving culture of the West Indies into the celebration through the cuisine and entertainment.
Anaïde happily reunited with the couple as their officiant for their vow renewal. The ceremony was held at the foot of the historic Alexandre III Bridge. “We wanted to hold an intimate ceremony in one of the most beautiful locations in the world – the heart of Paris,” said Anaïde. Despite the temperamental and uncertain weather conditions, the clouds broke just in time for their ceremony. Christelle wore a gorgeous champagne dress to tie in the white and gold color scheme of their wedding and Julien wore his original wedding tuxedo.
