By now, you probably know that celebrity doctors Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho tied the knot on September 2 at the American Church in Paris. But what everyone's buzzing about is where they held their wedding reception: the Opéra National de Paris - Palais Garnier.
The Palais Garnier, often referred to as the "Opera Garnier," was built from 1861 to 1875. The architect, Charles Garnier, won an architectural design competition held by Emperor Napoleon III. The Opera Garnier, which is Beaux-Arts in style, is arguably the most famous opera house in the world.
Vicki and Hayden had their first dance on the grand staircase:
The ceremonial staircase, made of different kinds of marble, divides into two flights of stairs and leads to the Grand Foyer.
The guests were seated in the Grand Foyer. Event stylist Robert Blancaflor made the hall look even more regal. According to his Instagram post, you'd need to be of a "certain stature" to get approved if you want to book this place. And all you have to do is check the couple's official wedding hashtag "aKHOandmyBELOved" on Instagram and you'll see the most stunning photos of this exclusive venue.
In our 20 Years in the business, we have done more than 10 Weddings outside the Philippines but the #aKHOandmyBELOved Wedding is by far the best of them all. Its in Paris, and the Venue #PalaisGarnier is one of the most exclusive in the World. Not only that you need an enormous amount of money to be "approved" but you also need to have a certain stature. Only a handful are given this opportunity. Thank You Dr Hayden Kho @dochayden and Dra Vicki Belo @victoria_belo for the trust. I am humbled. #RBGInternationalEvents #RBG20Years with #YaparazziEvents
