Event designer Angela Mazanti created an unforgettable bridal luncheon for bride Brooke and her wedding party. The Parisian theme was inspired by the couple’s engagement in the City of Light, and the beautiful courtyard at Felicia Suzanne’s restaurant in downtown Memphis provided the perfect ambiance.
Beautiful antique green hydrangeas, light peach Juliet garden roses and ivory Vendela roses were the primary flower choices. “We wanted it to feel lush but not overdone so we used short, rectangle glass vases and repeated them all the way down the center of the tables,” explains Mazanti.
The inspiration for the luncheon was Parisian romance. Tyler took Brooke to Paris so that he could surprise her with a romantic proposal on one of the city’s ”love lock” bridges. He had a special lock engraved with their initials to leave on the bridge.
Set the Scene
We decided to use the French theme for Brooke’s bridal shower that we were weaving through all of the details of her wedding. The luncheon took place at Felicia Suzanne’s restaurant in the beautiful courtyard.
The color scheme was fresh, soft peaches and creams with touches of antique green. Mazanti incorporated special touches including miniature iron Eiffel Towers on the tables and pictures of Brooke and Tyler to personalize the occasion.
