Memorable Wedding Venues | Le Grand Salon de la Comtesse

Generations of fairytales have come true at La Colombe d'Or Hotel. Their "Le Grand Salon" is an unrivaled setting for unforgettable celebrations, as seen from Texas wedding photographer Nancy Aidee.

A premier example of authentic French Regence decor, Le Grand Salon at La Colombe d'Or Hotel is lined in 300-year-old oak panels, soaring 20 feet, from the country chateau of Comte Henry Greffulhe and Princess Elisabeth de Caraman-Chimay (La Comtesse). The Grand Ballroom offers a beautiful presentation of the grandeur of a bygone era. Originally carved in 1715, the panels were installed at the estate near Foutenailles, just outside Paris, in 1891. The exquisite room was the scene of the last great ball of European royalty prior to World War I. Guests included Czar Nicholas of Russia, Caruso, Pasteur, Curie, Wagner, Marconi and Proust.

What a thrill to be the bride and groom and step onto the dance floor surrounded by such history and grandeur!
