Knots in Paris












A few posts back, I reminisced about a fabulous trip to Paris a few years ago. Though I've been to Paris several times and I always fall in love with the city all over again, I never get tired of mentally and emotionally going back there, thinking of the strolls we'd take through obscure streets. 

It's not overrated as many say. It's just not. It's magical in every way imaginable. 

So that post was a very overt attempt at convincing myself to move there as a wonderful and super juicy opportunity to go has presented itself. 

And as if I needed any more reason other than I'd be living there, a dope photographer friend of mine (and the one who photographed me here), did the sexiest thing ever. Ever. 

He flew to Paris on a whim's notice and married his fabulous and dear girlfriend. They rented a yacht and exchanged vows on the River Seine. 

They'd only been dating for a year. I mean how sexy and utterly romantic is that? Gasp. 

So, see, Paris makes dreams come true.

Closer to Lucy: Hi!! *waving* nice to meet you and thanks for stoping by. Aren't they just gorgeous and drool worthy!??! I can't get enough! Will make sure to check you out now! ;)

Lynn: Hey... girl, I'm telling you. It's sexy to the 10th degree! Those were the 10 or so that I chose, but I can't wait to see the rest. Everything about their shoot and wedding is stunning. And the lovely thing was that it was literally JUST the two of them!!! I'll keep you posted about my move to Paris... can you imagine!

Lynn said...

i'd love to see more Bren, it must be so hard to choose which ones to post because by the looks of it there wouldn't be a dud in the bunch!

i've been married before myself (total overshare about to happen) and it was a big wedding. i felt the day go by and didn't really remember much about it except the fact that my face hurt so much the next day from forced smile overload. i tend to call "him" the bad man and will leave it at that. now my love for life, Sean, has me feeling moments like i can imagine while looking at these glorious shots. the way their eyes meet, wowza!

anyways, if we ever did knot it up, we'd both love to do exactly what they did, a one on one, where ALL the smiles are real and the memories are forever. ♥

Just stumbled upon your blog and read about your Paris affection. (I too have one.)

Thought you might enjoy this blogger...

Don't know if you've read her blog...her name is Gabrielle Blair and will be moving to France (near Paris) with her husband and kids for year.

Anyway, if you can't go to Paris....you can live vicariously through her experiences. Enjoy!
