For many, Paris is a dream place to wed, but for this couple, it was more than just that. Randy and Cheska got to spend their last happy memory with the bride’s father in their wedding–making it the perfect two-week trip for the whole family.
Why Paris? This destination wedding has an interesting backstory. When the couple just started dating, Randy made such a romantic gesture while Cheska was in Paris over the summer. A red rose was sent to Cheska’s hotel room with a note, “Just so you know someone misses you at home. See you soon!” “Of course, being shocked and head over heels, I immediately told him I wanted to marry him in Paris,” Bride Cheska said.
It was such a spectacular moment for Randy and Cheska to share their first kiss as husband and wife with the Eiffel Tower as their background. They also cruised around the city in a luxury yacht where their guests got to enjoy the view of the sparkling tower at night. But truly the most memorable moment took place when the bride and her father shared their first and only dance with everyone watching. Really, it was one significant event in the City of Love.

“Paris became our chance to have a fun, carefree, intimate celebration with our closest family. We wanted it to be something memorable, funny, and unlike any wedding we had been to before. So we planned, all on our own, the perfect wedding.” Cheska, Bride
“September 8th was the day of our wedding. It had been raining the whole week and there was a 60% chance of rain that day, but the weather on the day of our wedding was perfect.” Cheska, Bride
“What Paris ended up being for all of us, most importantly, was our last trip with my dad. My dad sadly passed away unexpectedly in October due to a heart attack. Perhaps the single most beautiful memory I will have of that night is sharing, what turned out to be, my only Father-Daughter dance with Papa.” Cheska, Bride
“Overall, we chose Paris because it’s the City of Love – and love, in all its pureness and simplicity, was all we needed to make our intimate, lighthearted celebration the perfect wedding for us to kick off our married life together.” Cheska, Bride
