Ashley & Chris got engaged on a trip to Paris so when it came time to plan their wedding it only seemed natural to return to the city for the festivities. This wedding was recently featured on the Wedding Chicks.
We worked with them from the start of their wedding planning. The first step was narrowing down the locations to host the wedding and for this they selected the gorgeous historic salons of the Shangri-la Hotel as their venue.
The couple had 30 of their closest friends and family in attendance. The day got underway with all the ladies coming over to the bridal suite at the Saint James Hotel for hair & makeup.
For the design the bride wanted a color palette of reds, black and white. In order to keep it fresh and summery we also mixed in fresh greens, gray-greens and pale peach to the florals.
The couple exchanged vows under the natural arch of the beautiful Parisian salon and then had cocktails on the terrace with an Eiffel Tower view.
While guests were given a private tour of Paris the couple went for photos around the city in a vintage Rolls Royce.
After cocktails on the terrace with a view on the Eiffel Tower guests were invited into the Grand Salon for dinner at one long table. Seating cards on black paper with white writing and custom calligraphic menus added the touch of black to the table. A black & white Kate Spade inspired cake by Synie’s completed the theme.
