REIMS, France, Aug. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On a day when only the best would do, Armand de Brignac is pleased to announce it was the Champagne toast of choice for Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' wedding reception on Saturday, August 20th at a lavish private estate in Montecito, California.
The wedding reception, created by celebrity wedding planner Sharon Sacks, featured an "Old Hollywood" theme where guests enjoyed opulent bottles of Armand de Brignac throughout the night. During a recent interview for Entertainment Tonight, Sharon commented:
"What was really great is that all of the guests were staying til two in the morning and they were drinking the unbelievable bubbly of Armand de Brignac. It is the most famous champagne in the world; it's the most expensive Champagne in the world. Kim and Kris love the Champagne and Kim said to me, 'If I'm going to spend money on anything, I want that Champagne!'"
People Magazine acquired exclusive rights to the wedding ceremony and reported:
"The black-and-white theme carried through to the tables, where guests toasted with Armand de Brignac champagne..."
Following the official ceremony, Kim and Kris' guests, including Eva Longoria, Ryan Seacrest & Julianne Hough, Venus & Serena Williams, Mario Lopez and Lindsay Lohan were escorted into the property's mansion, where they enjoyed a luxurious Armand de Brignac Champagne reception. Guests then dined on a four-course meal created by celebrated chef Wolfgang Puck, pairing the starters and main dish with Armand de Brignac Brut Gold and the dessert with Armand de Brignac Rose.
Once dinner and speeches ended, guests toasted the newlyweds with Armand de Brignac Rose Champagne.
Armand de Brignac Champagne is handcrafted using old-world techniques by a staff of only eight people at a house established in 1763 in Chigny-les-Roses, France. This prestige cuvee is the number one rated Champagne in the world.
Each metallic bottle is crafted entirely by hand and features two Ace of Spades insignias and four hand-applied pewter labels. The striking bottle is housed in a black wooden case embossed with the Champagne's royal crest. Each box is lined in velvet and fitted with an engraved nameplate, reflecting the splendor and grand style of the French fashion world and perfectly complementing the Armand de Brignac Champagne within.
Armand de Brignac is truly an experience of luxury.
