Sarah & Benjamin in Florence, Italy

Two Parisians, who met and fell in love in New York City, jet to Florence to host a stylish black-and-white—themed destination wedding.

Sarah and Benjamin first met through mutual friends, while studying in New York City in 2007. "As we got to know each other, we realized we had grown up in the same neighborhood in Paris," says Sarah. "Ben always tells me it was love at first sight for him, though it took a bit longer for me."

Although the couple currently resides in Paris, they decided to host a destination wedding in Florence, Italy. "The city is fairly close to Paris, which meant our friends and family could travel there easily," says Sarah. "Plus, Florence is so romantic—and Italian food is our favorite!"
