Jeri & Michael

WELCOME

Welcome to our wedding website! We are so excited to share our big day with our favorite people in Paris France. Paris has become a special place to both of us and it is also where Michael proposed. After meeting in Detroit which had been dubbed "The Paris of the Midwest" due to being founded by French explorer Antoine La Laumet de La Mothe, it is truly magical that we are celebrating our marriage in Paris France. We understand this is a big trip and appreciate you wanting to come to the city of love to celebrate us. We also hope if this is a place you have always wanted to visit then our wedding will give you the nudge to take an epic vacation. For anyone who cannot attend, we totally understand and hope to celebrate with you stateside at some point. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any travel or wedding questions.

Travel

AIRPORT

Paris Charles de Galle Airport

To fly directly to Paris you will fly into CDG- Charles De Gaulle airport
If you'd like to fly into a different country before your trip to Paris you can easily take the Eurostar train to Paris! Visit the Eurostar website/or download the APP and book your seats!

Transportation

We highly recommended hiring a car service to pick you up when you land. It can be hard to find an Uber or taxi. Once in the city of Paris Ubers are easily accessible and pick you up in a timely manner. You can also use the Metra trains.

WHERE TO STAY

Arrondissement- District or Neighborhood (Focus on 8 central areas)
Please note that our wedding will take place in the 1st Arrondissement and we also recommended staying in the 8th.

City Centre (arr. 1 to 4): to live Paris as on a postcard, with all the iconic places you have already seen on TV so many times
Latin Quarter (arr. 5): to experience the young side of the city with the nightlife
Saint-Germain-des-Prés (arr. 6): for the coffee culture and the luxurious side of the city
Eiffel Tower (arr. 7): because it is your dream to have a hotel with a view of the most famous tower in the world
Champs-Élysées (arr. 8): shopping street, famous fashion designers and fine dining.
Rochechouart (arr. 9 and 10): for something between the city center, Montmartre (Sacré Coeur) and Pigalle (Moulin Rouge)
Roquette (arr. 11): if you are after a local experience, a youngish one with a hipster touch. Think small restaurants, boutique cafes and a local community feeling
The arrondissement de Reuilly (arr. 12): if the budget is a concern but you still want to stay in Paris
