Memories of Paris

Kimi and Steve's wedding at Ralston Hall was a reminder for the two of them and their guests, of their love for Paris. After 3 trips to Paris in the last few years, Kimi and Steve wanted use the details of their wedding to reflect a flavor of Paris...

This escort card display was made by Steve, because they did not find the exact Eiffel Tower they were looking for!

Fleur de Lis emblems were on each wish card which were hung by guests on an antique French stand or placed in the ornate gold box, for Kimi and Steve to read through later.

This Parisian inspired box was hand made for the gift envelopes; each picture frame and flower stand was lovingly sought and found at flea markets and on eBay, to convey the Parisian theme Kimi and Steve were developing.

The favors were combination of framed Polaroid photos, taken during the reception, of each guest, and leather luggage tags, displayed in antique suitcases...a tribute to all the flights Kimi and Steve have made to Paris!

The Ballroom at Ralston Hall provided a naturally French feel for the ceremony, and with the addition of French silk fabric draping the gold chiviari chairs, the European ambiance was complete.

The cake was of course topped by the Fleur de Lis, with an ornate gold stand supporting the elegant four tiered cake decorated with hand painted gold flourishes distinctly French.

Viva la romance!
