A few words about the Ritz Paris:
The Ritz, I know it’s unusual to say that, is one of my favorite Parisian palace.
This hotel whose fame is no longer to be made was created in 1898 by Caesar Ritz, the Ritz is one of the most prestigious Parisian hotels and one of the most famous in the world. It is an international reference in terms of French-style luxury hotels.
Famous personalities such as Coco Chanel used to walk through the door of the hotel, and even stay there all year round.
It is ideally located in the heart of Paris, on the Place Vendôme, a place known for its many luxury houses.
Why get married at the Ritz in Paris?
I think the answer is in the question. Getting married in one of the most beautiful palaces in Paris is the opportunity of a lifetime.
Couples who decide to host their wedding at the Ritz usually love History and the prestige of having their celebration in one of the most iconic hotels in the world.
In addition, the Ritz also has the only garden in Paris, perfect for wedding ceremonies in summer. The terraces can be fully privatized, offering a breathtaking view and it is ideal for photos believe me.
They also have various Historic Salons with a discreet charm that will be perfect for a traditional and intimate wedding.
Getting married at the Ritz also means getting ready in a Ritz suite.
And believe me, you won’t regret it. Their spacious, golden and perfectly decorated rooms will leave you breathless. Getting ready is your moment, so make it as pleasant as possible.
If you’re lucky, and I can help you get lucky by introducing you to the Ritz team when booking your room, you can get ready in my favorite suite, the one with the view of the magnificent Place Vendôme.
Their rooms have all the details that scream Paris: the moldings, the soft Laduree type colors, the marble fireplace,… If you are looking for a Classic romantic feel for your photos the Ritz will be the perfect fit for you.

The lounges can accommodate up to 130 seated guests or 500 guests for a cocktail reception, but they also have smaller salons that are perfect for elopements so if you prefer an intimate wedding or a grand wedding, the choice is yours.
