It was a truly enchanting week, and I am delighted to share some of the very special memories we made with you.
Every Monday for the next few weeks, I will be posting a new part of our honeymoon story. I hope you enjoy the first in this four-part tour of the City of Light and Love!
One of the best parts about the trip was the Eiffel Tower view we had from our hotel.
Each morning, my husband and I woke up to the smell of fresh coffee brewing downstairs and opened our balcony windows to take in the stunning view.
Our first night in the City we took a romantic boat tour up and down the Seine. My husband took this panoramic photo from the deck as we sipped our sparkling champagne under the stars.
Paris by night is stunning. The classic French architecture is illuminated by thousands of lights.
But the daytime is just as splendid. Though it's still wintertime in Paris (it actually snowed just the week before we came!), the springtime flowers are already starting to bud.
The Jardin du Luxembourg was the perfect place to stroll hand-in-hand and enjoy the more laid-back French life style.
For our wedding ceremony we recited traditional vows to one another, but we also wrote our own, which we had saved to read on our honeymoon.
We made our sacred promises to one another as husband and wife and "locked our love" on Lover's Bridge, throwing the key into the river as a symbol of our unbreakable bond.
Because we were just a 5-minute stroll to the Eiffel Tower from our hotel room, we visited this magnificent structure several times. Here are a few of my favorite photos from both below and above.
I hope you had a lovely tour through romantic Paris in this first part of our honeymoon series. Be sure to check back next Monday for "Sights of the City."
À bientôt, mes amis!
