France, Life, Travel


I am still on cloud nine as I write this. Nicolas and I have been keeping a secret for the past month and are finally ready to share it with you all!

It was the evening of May 18th in a beautiful park in Paris.


The sun was setting and (unbeknownst to me) this handsome man was about to ask me something. I have no idea how he seemed so calm and carefree!

In the most beautiful words, Nicolas proposed to me, and without hesitation

I said yes (!!!)

As fate would have it, a lovely American couple happened to be walking by and took several photos. I am forever thankful for these two lovely strangers that documented this moment for us! As you can see, it took several photos for me to process the fact that this was happening and that I was actually



After calling our families to share the news, we celebrated with a cozy dinner at one of the fanciest restaurants I have ever been to. It was just the two of us in our own little world, so happy to be in each other’s company and planning for the exciting times ahead.


It was magical. It was perfect.

It was a fairytale.

    Oh Madison congratulations! What a beautiful couple you make. Can’t say I am surprised. Love that he proposed to you in Paris.

    (I’ve always heard you congratulate the groom, not the bride, because she’s the prize and he won her heart. But I bet he is a prize too!)

    Congrats to all. What a lovely setting!

I have never met you in person and only know you through your blog as well as your dear mothers, but the two of you seem like the perfect and sweetest couple. Truly, you can see the love and admiration in your eyes. Congratulations, dear one! And what a lovely ring 🙂 Speaking of lovely, your dress… LOVE IT! You looked stunning.
