It wasn’t love at first sight for Ellen and Jeremy, who say their initial meeting as college sophomores was utterly forgettable. However, a second encounter one year later proved fateful. “Soon after [we first met], Jeremy suddenly began to go legally blind, losing his central vision in both eyes due to a rare genetic disorder,” Ellen shares. “Just a few months after losing his vision, we happened to meet again at a football tailgate. I was impressed with how open he was about the trials and tribulations he had just been through, while remaining passionate and focused on the good that remained in his life. I remember thinking, ‘Wow, this guy is one-of-a-kind.'”

“After losing my vision, it was difficult to share with others,” says Jeremy, “and I remember thinking that Ellen was the first person I had met that I immediately felt comfortable sharing everything with.” After that second meeting, the pair was inseparable—six years into their relationship, Jeremy proposed.

On May 12, 2018, Ellen and Jeremy hosted 51 guests at their destination wedding in Paris. “Paris is our favorite city in the world,” says Jeremy, whose father was born and raised in France, “and we decided that it was where we wanted to have the most important moment of our lives and our relationship.” The theme? A classic Parisian dinner party. “One of our absolute favorite things about Parisians is their amazing ability to host the most elegant, yet simplistic events,” says Ellen. “We wanted our guests to experience this same magical, romantic hospitality that we have come to love and embrace.” Even the couple’s color scheme was influenced by the city. “Our color palette was mauve, gray, and cream—we kept referring to it as a stormy spring day in Paris,” Ellen says. “The grays were the stormy sky color, and the mauve and cream were the spring flower pops throughout the city.”

Throughout the black-tie event, the couple kept the focus on creating an amazing experience for their loved ones. “We truly felt like our wedding weekend was not just a celebration of us and our love, but a gift to each of our family members and friends to say thank you for being by our sides and supporting us in this next adventure,” Ellen explains. “The amount of love and fun that we all experienced in those three days will last forever.”
