My love affair with Paris is no secret. Last week, we returned from an amazing trip all over France. Here’s a peek into our escapades via Instagram and iPhone pictures…mixing business with pleasure, of course! From Paris we went to Provence to scout for one of our destination wedding clients getting married there next year. Stay tuned for “Strawberry Milk does Provence” – coming next!
- Place Vendome
Entrance to our hotel – The Westin Place Vendome:
Beautiful moldings and chandeliers…
No rest for the weary! Straight from the airport to our hotel’s courtyard for a wedding planning meeting with my Parisian assistants…jet lag and all 🙂
Les Marquis – a new concept store from Laduree (chocolate lover’s only!)
Laduree’s new chocolate shop with a bit of a different/edgy look
The famous Les Deux Magots
St. Germain – the cafe viennois here is one of the best in Paris! Such a great spot for people watching.
Place des Vosges….definitely a fun spot to just kill a few hours with a book or picnic

Confident curvy woman, I’d say…
One of my favorite spots on earth….the Tuilieries. You can stand here and see (almost) everything. The Louvre, Musee d’Orsay & Eiffel Tower. Does it get any better?
Could totally see an Angelina cart at a Parisian wedding…
