Despite the chilly weather in Paris in November, Aaricia made this afternoon photoshoot fun, and captured many, many photos of my husband and I as we celebrated our 15th anniversary by renewing our vows by the Eiffel Tower. She knew the best spots for photos near the Tower, and her professional direction made it easy for my husband and I to loosen up and have some fun with the photoshoot. Our vow renewal was a brief ceremony by the Seine, which was all captured by Aaricia as well. Besides being a wonderful photographer and providing us with lots and lots of great pictures, Aaricia also gave us some tips for some of the cities we were traveling to during our trip. I would highly recommend this tour!
This was the most magical day of our lives. We dreamed of renewing our vows in Paris since the day we got married. Our photographer Ari was the absolute coolest, nice, amazing guy! Our ceremony was led by Sara, who wrote the most beautiful words for us. It was such a great experience- Just DO IT!
Our day was absolutely beautiful!!! Thanks to our fantastic photographer, Ariteidis Bafaloukas. He was patient and took great photos. We felt like stars for the day. It and #39; and #39;s a day we will never forget and always cherish. Thanks, Ari!
First, thanks to David for his cooperation in pushing back our vow renewal a day after our luggage and my wife's wedding dress that she wore 25 years ago and it still fit! was lost for 4 days! But cooperate he did, and communicated with us rapidly after notifying him of our emergency. We were staying within a block of the Eiffel Tower but given that the vows were delayed a day, my vouchers and therefore the meeting instructions disappeared, and once again, I had to turn to David, who gladly steered me literally in the right direction towards a patiently waiting Ari, our photographer. His Greek heritage instantly captured my wife of Greek heritage, and for the next hour, we did what Ari told us to do going from place to place around the Eiffel Tower Ari capturing the incredible afternoon light in about every imaginable way. While it was obvious that Ari knew the places that would produce the best shots he's obviously done this before, you could tell that he truly, truly cared about what he was doing. Be ready to climb if you're fortunate enough to get Ari you'll remember this, but it's all in his effort to produce a truly phenomenal picture history in incredibly beautiful surroundings. As we walked, people everywhere began to take pictures of us, especially my stunningly beautiful bride again, which added to the uniqueness of this experience. After about an hour, and multiple scene scapes including across from the Eiffel Tower and down on the Seine River, we met incredibly charming and Native Parisian celebrant, Victoria who has also lived in Miami who joined us for some final shots during which she skinned her leg and kept moving like the trooper she is and then our vow renewal, down along the Seine, while Ari continued to click away with his camera. Victoria's message was simple and so appropriate, defining the meaning of marriage again, followed by a poem that so captured the message that she delivered. Victoria and Ari then insisted that we have our own private moment, during which Ari kept clicking away, capturing the tears shed from both bride and groom at the incredible moment that we were experiencing. And to think that it almost didn't happen, and in some locations, our problems wouldn't have become anyone else's. But David responded Ari and Victoria delivered, and for that, my wife and I are eternally grateful! Needless to say, you need to do this, and I can only hope that your experience is as captivating and memorable as ours! Du fond de notre coeur, nous vous remercions! From the bottom of our heart, we thank you!
This was a great. We truly loved the vow renewal and the photographer was amazing. We had our pictures back the next day and they came out beautifully. So happy we booked this.
Yes very professional. Aaricia was great helping us with the right pose and locations. I will recommend this for your special day that will last a life time. Thank you for making our day so special in Paris. You are the best. Tim and Nhora

Great experience renewing our wedding vows. Anne was our photographer and she took great photos and was a pleasure to work with and was extra sweet to out little daughter. She took interest to make sure we got the iconic photos we wanted. Sara was our officiant and had some beautiful words about marriage. She took extra care to personalize our experience including selecting a great location near the Eiffel Tower. The twinkle in our daughter's eyes seeing us get married was priceless and both Sara and Anne were a great team, If you are thinking out renewing your vows, it it well worth it.

Our experience with Ari and David was fantastic. Despite the day starting off with a little challenges with security around the Eiffel Tower, Ari and David made us feel at ease. Both were incredibly sweet and easy to work with. We scheduled the renewal with some hesitation, not knowing what we were getting into. But afterwards, we were completely thrilled with having gone through with it. I don't write reviews often, but our experience was too good not to. Thank you!
David was an amazing photographer and selected many great locations for shots. He arrived promptly and got me to come out of my shell to pose for some silly and many great photos. This was an excellent experience and definitely a highlight of the trip. He was even able to get my angst ridden little girl to participate eventually.
The vow renewal was conducted on the bank of the river Seine with the Eiffel Tower as a back drop. If you are looking to make your trip to France memorable, this is an opportunity that should not be missed.
We booked this after reading the reviews and planned our entire 25th wedding anniversary celebrations around it - what an amazing experience.
We had a budget wedding so decided to make a real splash for our vow renewals. My husband had gone down a bit earlier and I spied him in his tuxedo first, he looked so handsome. I wore a wedding gown with a train and I felt like a princess. Lots of people cheered and took snaps of us whilst we waited for David Law, the photographer to arrive at 5pm.
David is very charming and we were comfortable with him straight away. He snapped pictures with us at the Tower and then took us to various spots on both the Left and Right of the River Seine. All the while chatting away and making us feel that we were the only two people in Paris that mattered that afternoon.
After an hour or so, his son Lou met us and read out words that totally summed up a partnership of 25 years that acknowledged that we are two individuals that come together as one. I was quiet teary afterwards simply because it had been exactly what we were hoping for.
David and Lou farewelled us and promised pictures soon. By the time we got back from dinner at Le Jules Verne at the Eiffel Tower, David had emailed a few through so I could post them to friends and family. Everyone has commented on how beautifully shot the pictures are including some of my friends who are prices signal photographers!
A totally memorable experience, we couldn't be happier
We had an absolute blast on this trip. The photographer knew where to get some fantastic shots and we now have a fantastic memory. Thank you!
This was one of the best days of my life...my husband and I went to Paris during our honeymoon, and I surprised him with this second wedding under the Eiffel Tower. We had a very intimate ceremony just for the two of us. After having had a full-blown wedding in the US, with all of our family and friends, this was sweet and very personal and just perfect. Victoria did an AMAZING service with a perfect message that resonated with both of us, and she made sure this was everything we had hoped for. Our photographer, David, was great!!! He was fun and energetic, and made sure we had a lot of pictures of everything, including some improvised shots that shows how fun and romantic the event was for us. I could not be happier with this, and highly recommend booking whether this is a renewal or for newly wed couples. It was an experience that my husband and I will never forget!!!
We where very late getting there but Aaricia was GREAT would HIGHLY recommend her
The vow renewal was fantastic. This was so easy. We renew our vows every year and it has NEVER been so easy to plan. The photographer was lovely and met us promptly under the Eiffel Tower. She took several pictures under the Eiffel Tower, at the Park, and then along the Seine, by the bridge -- all with amazing views of the Eiffel Tower. She new exactly where to go and told us what to do so we didn't feel silly posing. Later she sent the pics via e-mail, and re-touched some for us. They're amazing. The gentleman who did our vow renewals was sweet, very French, and made the event very personal. Cannot recommend the experience enough. Thank you!
Our wedding vow renewal day was truly amazing and magical. Our photographer Michel and our celebrant Victoria became instant friends with both ourselves and our guests. The beautiful words and poem spoken to us by Victoria were so special. The photographs taken in the beautiful surroundings were amazing. Everything we wished for and more! We loved every minute spent with them, and they made us feel so relaxed on our special day. We would recommend this experience to everyone.
foi simplesmente espetacular eu e o meu noivo adoramos as fotos tiradas pelo fotografo Ari, uma pessoa muito amavel e acessivel. recomendo a todos
We had such a wonderful time with David and Lou. David took wonderful photos and Lou spoke a beautiful vow renewal. More importantly both couldn't have been nicer or more fun. Thanks again!!
What a great experience!! David and his son were tremendous!! Highly recommend this offer to anyone looking to renew their wedding vows while in Paris!! Top-notch!
Our wedding renewal in a Paris was truly amazing. The photographer became an instant friend. He took the time to capture us with the beauty of the surrounds. The pictures were all so lovely it was hard to choose which we liked best. Our celebrant was lovely. She made us feel so comfortable and made the service such a personal and memorable experience. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone!
Our photographer was amazing and our pictures were everything we wanted and the renewal was great with beautiful words spoken from our celebrant.. we loved every minute with them....
Many thanks to David law photographer and David our 'Celebrant' for a highly memorable experience renewing our wedding vows by the Seine River with the Eifel tower in the background.
A thoroughly enjoyable morning with some fabulous memories and photos.
10 out of 10! 2 great characters.
We had our renewal of vows last August 22,2015 and it was so fantastic! The renewal ceremony was so intimate despite from the fact that it was too crowded when we went there. I cant help my self to cry because everything was so perfect, standing in front of the Eiffel tower holding hands with my husband and saying those vows we had, Ohhhh so perfect! It was one of the best part of our lives and that can't be trade with money. And of course with the help of our 2 Davids. I was so scared at the beginning that my husband may not like it, knowing the fact he was too scared to have a pictorial session in front of many people but everything went great. David, our photographer was so brilliant and very helpful. I would recommend David Law and David Jornet to everyone. This is one of the best item here in Viator and you will not regret when you book this. It was a whole new experience for us! Thanks to our two Davids.
