Fallon & Fleetwood   ♥   Paris, France

Photographer:   Annabelle Denmark Photography

 

Fallon and Fleetwood met at a friend’s barbecue in May 2007. A brief conversation about Fallon’s tattoos led to the pair discovering that they shared a love of motorcycles. By the end of the first week this darling duo were inseparable and planning a motorcycle ride to the Rocky Mountains together…

 

Fast-forward six years and Fleetwood performs the perfect surprise proposal for Fallon, seriously sweeping her off her feet. She of course said ‘Yes!’ and they both knew in this very instant that Paris was always a good idea for a destination wedding!

 

Paris held a special place in their hearts and they had previously talked about the City of Love as a destination wedding location. They didn’t even need to discuss the idea any further, the moment that they were engaged they just knew it was for them and who could blame them? Paris really is always a good idea.

 

The oh-so-talented photographer Annabelle Denmark tells us more about this cute couple’s proposal and their Parisian love story…

“Given that they had been dating for over six years the pressure was on Fleetwood for an amazing proposal.”

 

“Fallon received a call from Fleetwood’s mom, Catherine, asking her to find a time for a nice dinner out and that it would be lovely if Fallon’s sister, Keighley could join. Catherine also thought it would be fun if both of the girls got ready at her place, have some snacks and champagne and pick Fleetwood up on the way to the restaurant. Fallon obliged and August 28th 2013 happened to fit perfectly into everyone’s schedules.”

“Keighley got off work early and she and Fallon decided to go shopping before going to get ready. Fallon just happened to find a new dress for dinner. They then went to Catherine’s and got dolled up.”

 

“When they got to Fallon and Fleetwood’s newly purchased home, Fleetwood was nowhere to be found but someone was in the house. Fallon called and from the kitchen emerged a man in a chef’s coat. “Hi, I’m Chef Chuck and Fleetwood is out back.” Fallon walked through the house and found Fleetwood in the backyard all decked out complete with a bow tie.”

“She heard their song playing, saw rose petals leading to a white tent with fairy lights and a table set for two with a little blue box. Fleetwood led her to the tent where he laid out a handkerchief (can’t get the suit dirty!) and got down on one knee.”

 

“After she said “Yes!” a slew of photos were taken and then the two were left alone to enjoy a six-course meal with all of their favorite foods. After the meal they danced the night away under the stars in the home where they will begin their lives together. Truly a perfect moment!”

“Fallon always said that she had left her heart in Paris and would one day return. Fleetwood had studied French for several years but had never had the opportunity to go to France.”

 

“Fallon has a large family and a large wedding had always been the expectation until Fleetwood came along. He liked the idea of a more intimate ceremony and suggested to Fallon that the day they decided to get married they should do it in Paris. Fallon was quickly on board with this idea and so the day that Fleetwood proposed, Fallon asked when they should book their flights!”
