The Krewe of Orléans is pleased to announce its 1st royal couple for the 2016 Mardi Gras Ball—Mr. & Mrs. Michael and Donna Brousseau.
Presenting Empress Donna Brousseau wearing her custom design iridescent full crystal gown and matching wheel backpiece. Empress Donna pranced down the aisle waiving her royal wand in even pace to allow attendees to capture a glimpse of her Royal elegance. Empress Donna was beautifully decorated and captured the hearts of everyone that was able to see her smile as bright as stars. Her impressive iridescent crystal crown perfectly complimented her gown.
Presenting Emperor Mike Brousseau wearing an elaborate custom burgundy velvet robe heavily detailed with crystal Fleur-de-lis and a matching iridescent crystal Fleur-de-lis full round crown. He walked down the aisle while white gloved and waving to all attendees. At times, Emperor Brousseau showed his fun loving character in the many poses and gestures he made for guests as he approached the stage.
After the crowning ceremony, the Royal Couple changed into equally elaborate regal outfits suited for royalty. The Royal Couple had nearly 200 personal friends and family attend the event to celebrate this grand occasion. Mr. and Mrs. Brousseau are authentic native New Orleanians with distinctive style, class, and New Orleans charm!
“We thank everyone for your support and the honor of serving as your Royal Couple. We think this is a great opportunity for the Krewe of Orléans and the DFW. We hope the rest of America will take notice and want to make Dallas a stop on their next Mardi Gras itinerary.” – Mr. Michael and Mrs. Donna Brousseau
