Today’s episode is an interview with The Reverend Michelle Wahila, a New Yorker who has called Paris home for six years.
Perhaps better known by the moniker Ruffled By Grace, she whips around Paris in lace and Converse sneakers giving blessings to people who want to live out their dreams of a wedding in the City of Light.
She was in The Earful Tower studio to discuss just why people are obsessed with Paris – and also the best practices for if YOU want to get married here. And of course, we talk a whole lot about Paris too, as always.

“And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.” Colossians 3:14 from The Message . I get asked quite often about my choice in wearing a collar, and particularly about the modern feminine clergywear that I sport around Paris. There are so many answers to this question. From conversations about being a woman in ministry to being a servant, there are myriad layers to this tradition and choice. One of the most important reasons I have chosen this uniform is to be a visible symbol of the love and grace of God, particularly because I have the unique opportunity to officiate over sacred moments outside the church walls. . So if you ever see me hopping around Paris in my collar and Converse, stop and say “hi!” I would love to meet you. . . #parispastor #ruffledbygrace . .
