Inspiration Board: Old Hollywood glamour

Coupes and Canapes Good Morning!  Today is a slight deviation from the usual wedding inspiration as I only have one thing on my mind today, the Coupes and Canapes Soirée that is taking place in Paris tonight.

You might be thinking “I’ve not heard about this” that’s because it is a super sexy and exclusive party that I am throwing in Paris for wedding vendors in the FWS family.  It is a fabulous event to celebrate the best destination wedding professionals, who love weddings in France as much as I do.

But let’s rewind slightly….. During an FWS vendors group session, our wonderful vendors expressed a desire to meet each other in person, network with each other and then meet me.  I love working with destination wedding professionals, but one of the drawbacks is that we are based all over the world, so meeting in real life is problematic.

But I decided that it was time to emerge from behind my computer and host THE best party for destination wedding professionals this year and where better to host it than in Paris!

Before I even had a venue I knew that I was looking to create a soirée that evoked old hollywood glamour, a sexy speakeasy if you will.

I partnered with Habitat Parisien, a boutique apartment rental company in Paris and found a wonderful loft apartment in Paris, that comes complete with its own grand piano!

Curious to see what goes on behind the sceens?  Then be sure to head over to our Instagram and don’t worry there will be a full review of the event coming up on the blog next week.

So Choos at the ready and I best go and get to work!
