A La Francaise Events, a Californian event planning company, and the owner, Linda McGowan, brought together a talented team of Paris local professionals to show international couples how Parisian romance, elegance and sophistication can be weaved into modern-day wedding designs.

Wedding Reception Decor Ideas
The Prince Bonaparte dining table was decorated with ornate French dinnerware collected over years of antique market shopping by Vaisselle Vintage. Long white candlesticks and organic intimate centerpieces complimented the beautiful dining wall paintings. Reflets Fleurs brought a pop of color and energy to the dining room with their gorgeous floral arrangements matching the richness of the suite and perfectly blending with soft color palette. Gorgeous hand-made invitations with a gold wax seal and vintage stamps were designed by Ivy Cousin Designs.
This magnificent event was held at L’Appartement Prince Bonaparte of the Shangri-La Paris. This suite has luxurious decor and generous size that suggests the comfort and privilege of staying in French imperial Prince Bonaparte’s private apartment. It is listed as an official historical monument for its beamed ceilings, castings, gilt work and decorative carvings. It is completely finished in marble, with crystal fixtures and accents, and features high ceilings and large windows through which abundant natural light cascades.
The wedding color palette was blush and powder blue with a touch of gold. Sweet Creations provided a stunning cake painted with a swirl of soft water colors and adorned with a delicate gold leaf and sugar flower arrangement showing off the artistic savoir-faire of Parisian gastronomy.
All photos were captured by the fine art photographer – Daria Lorman in her signature light and romantic style. Our ballerina bride did some ballet poses during her bridal morning, before majestic photos at the Shangri-la grand staircase in her breathtaking princess gown amplifying the grandeur of this already luxurious Parisian venue. We could not resist taking some photos of the bride and groom at the historic Alexandre III Bridge with the views of the iconic Eiffel Tower.
