A few comments about Gretchen and Andrew’s wedding from their friends by PGPhotography wedding Photographer in Monaco
This post is gathering all the little messages that some of G & A’s friends did send me after the wedding from all over the United States I ‘ll call it an e-guestbook I do not know if it allready exists someplace on the web and if someone as ever seen this before, please let me know. But in the meantime let me dream i might have invented something
Gretchen, despite the most chaotic travel I’ve ever had in my life (how much do you think American luggage goes for on the streets of gay Paris?) I had the most fun I’ve ever had at a wedding. Love to you and Andrew! -JON
Gretchen and Andrew, your wedding was beautiful and I am honored I was a part of it! I hope you have many happy years together! -JEAN
“I first met Andrew four years ago. At the time I felt quite a strong sense of curiosity because I was unsure how to welcome him. To me, my sister was a source of inspiration and love and I felt that not just any ordinary man could be worthy of her let alone handle her fire. However, as the years went on and I was able to see how he was around my family and I, and a strong sense of brotherly love developed. I consider Andrew a brother and I thank God that my sister was able to marry a man who is as loving as he. -PETER
Thanks Andrew and Gretchen for throwing the best wedding I’ve ever been to! It was special and beautiful and completely unforgettable! -DEREK
Family, friends, good food, beautiful location, romantic ambiance and even fireworks. Thank you Andrew and Gretchen for a wonderful time. I wish you the best for years to come.
How was that? Vanessa and I loved France…the food, the culture, the people. We loved everything and definitely plan to return in the future. Thank you as well for all the awesome pictures you took -GERMAN and VANESSA
Andrew & Gretchen,
What a wedding! Thank you again for inviting me to be apart of the special occasion. I am honored and pleased to have been able to share your special day and to celebrate your marriage.
Your minister at the wedding referred to marriage as a lifelong commitment. And the most refreshing thing about you two is that you have made the process that goes with making that commitment seem so easy.
Since the days of the 12 Gardner Street apartment in Allston, the support and consideration that you always give each other reflects more about you than just love. Yes, mes amis, your commitment also reveals great intelligence….. because the smartest thing you have ever done was marry one another.
I wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness,
Love always, -RICKY
Wedding in Mougins and Antibes by PG photography french wedding Photographer Cannes.
I got to know Sonia during the preperations for the wedding of Francoise and David at La Font du Broc in 2008. Myself, the bride, the videographer and a few other girls have such a great morning. So when Sonia introduced me to her fiancé, Christian and asked me to be the photographer at their wedding, I didn’t hesitate for a second. With Sonia’s excellent attention to detail we agreed on an exclusive package for which Sonia now holds the Copyright!! From now on I say to my clients, We’ll do a Sonia, LOL.
What can I say about this wedding? Lots of things in fact and I am not really sure where to begin. So from the beginning; I met up with Sonia, her cousin and her driver in a small beauty salon. The decor was magically and so we took advantage of the perfectly placed mirrors to take a few pictures under natural light in all its beauty. I must mention the beautician who was truly excellent at playing her role in the shoot, she deserves an Oscar.
I spent a big part of the day in the car, thank you GPS because travelling time between Cannes, Juan les Pins and Mougins on a Saturday is terrible. I then spent 45 minutes driving around Juan les pins to find a space beside the salon where I took pictures of the hair preparations.
I would like to mention the Priest from the parish of Saint Philomène in Cannet. His excellent sense of humour during the joyous ceremony merited all of the praise he got when guest left the church. It was see how well he communicated with the guests in this situation.
I hadn’t been to L’Auberge des Adrets in over 15 years and I had remembered it to be quite flattering. As soon as I walked in my impression was completely changed, it has been completely transformed over the years thanks to the many courting couples who have visited through the years. I would now describe this as a magically venue, full of charm and beautifully decorated.
Lastly a quick mention to our friend Jazz Barth, I love his fabulous répertoire, and who has been playing his saxophone for some years now and features in two or three of my favourite photos.
Sonia and Christian from Mougins and Grasse

We met online in a chat room, he was in the library at the University of Law in Perpignan, I was at Titinette’s place in Antibes, the “virtual” first meeting was on the 24 November 2004.
