Luxury Weddings

Our Approach to Wedding Planning

At Ooh la la! France Wedding Planner, we pride ourselves on addressing the needs and concerns of all our couples, whether it’s a luxurious wedding for 20 or two hundred. We organize traditional nuptials that respect traditions, whether they are for a Christian, Jewish, Middle-Eastern, Asian or Russian-Orthodox wedding. Moreover, since the law passed in France in 2014, as well as by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015, Ooh la la! France Wedding Planner also organizes same-sex weddings and vow renewal ceremonies.

“Everything was flawless, unbelievable and meaningful, our family and friends enjoyed themselves and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.”

Jessica Stoller, Versailles 2014

 

When you work with Ooh la la! France Wedding Planner, you have the luxury of working with an agency that organizes your wedding from the time of your guests’ arrival to their departure. We pride ourselves on creating turn-key dream occasions that allow you to enjoy every aspect of your event without any of the stress or worry that is all too often commonplace. This means that we select and purchase all services within the confines of your stated budget, making sure that everyone delivers exactly what you requested and nothing less. This allows us to have total control over all our partners and permits us to deliver the best possible event.

At the same time, because weddings can be costly affairs, we make sure to present you with detailed, itemized bills so you can evaluate the overall budget and have the discretionary freedom of where to splurge and where to save.
