Few cities in the world capture such timeless elegance and sophistication as the city of lights, Paris. Since Paris was one of the first places Olivia and Ryan traveled to when they started dated, it was only natural for this beautiful city to be the perfect choice for their nuptials. But before the wedding festivities even began, the first step was to welcome of their guests who traveled from all over the world in a welcome and rehearsal dinner set at the historical Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature. “We decided it should have a romantic and very sensual feel to it, and so we chose darker, plush reds and golds and even added grapes on the vine and abundant amounts of fruit to the tablescapes,” said the bride. “The moment I saw the interior design of the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, I knew it would be perfect. From the entryway of taxidermy animals (it’s a private hunting and fishing club as well as a museum), the rich color palette that flowed from room to room, the vintage velvet and leather seating to the antique hunting paraphernalia that hung from the walls,”. The couple invited their family, friends and loved ones into a plush, candlelit world that felt “Baroque-like” added their wedding planner, Sofia Crokos.
For their stationery we were tasked with creating paper goods that reflected and elevated the look that they were going with. Instead of traditional escort cards, we designed periwinkle blue and wine red scrolls which attendants used to escort guests to their respective tables. We also designed beautiful delicate scrolls in matching burgundy and gold colors that were laid alongside roses at each table setting. The result was spectacular and truly a sight to behold. Belathee Photography Studios captured every moment with their keen eye and sense of storytelling. Just check out their photos for yourself!
