There are events all weekend, but you don’t have to come to all (or any) of them. Except for the ceremony - you should come to that 😄
If you already have a jam-packed Paris itinerary, please don’t feel the need to change anything!

Vegetarian and other restrictions will be clearly labeled. You may sit down at any table you like to eat.
To drink we will have a selection of French champagne, red and white wine in addition to non-alcoholic soft drinks, juice, coffee and tea. We’ll also have beer served by a local Paris craft brewer.
We’ll also have water available for anyone who’s dancing really hard.
Dancing will begin around 9pm and continue until midnight. The music selection will include both American and French hits as well as some of our favorite dance-friendly beats.
Noon-3pm: Open House and Lite Brunch
Around 3pm we’ll move to one of the grassy sitting areas at the Jardin du Luxembourg. Find these “pelouse” in the southeast corner of the park.
