Le Bal Francais The Preservation Society Gala

The Preservation Society Gala, this year themed “Le Bal Francais,” took place at the esteemed Marble House in Newport, RI. The black, white, and red décor designed by Zak Events was extravagantly theatrical. Too add to the theatrics and thrill of the evening, live statue performances by Ten31 Productions awed guests as they mingled and enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

Russell Morin chefs crafted a menu to perfectly fit the theme of the evening to keep the 550 guests satisfied. The cigar and cordials tent kept all of the men exceptionally pleased.
