This “First Dance“ photo was taken at Melanie and Thibaut’s wedding in Paris, France. These two were the most stylish people ever and all of their guests as well. Just look at their style! We felt like Paris in the 1920s. After the ceremony in downtown Paris, we went to this amazing wedding venue a little bit outside of the city.
This beautiful, rustic venue with its industrial charm, was the perfect fit for them. The wedding planner told us about the plans for the first dance with the sparklers and so this helped us be prepared. The wedding party with their sparklers would form a circle around the dance floor.
Once the sparklers were lit, the couple would enter for the first dance. Since everyone was dressed beautifully and the venue was super beautiful as well we thought it would look amazing to capture the whole scenery in one image. The room was high enough to take the picture from above and there was a ladder around where we could step on.
One of us took the picture from the ladder right at the beginning of the dance so we would not be in each other’s photo. After we got the shot, we went in between the crowd to get all the different angles.
