According to the newspaper, LEst Republicain, prior to the civil ceremony the couple visited the Chapelle Ducale des Cordeliers where Miss Drapé-Frisch presented a:

“…bouquet of roses in the crypt of the deceased members of the Lorraine family.  It is a tradition. When a descendant of the Dukes of Lorraine in Nancy are married, the bride presents a bouquet in the crypt of the Chapelle Ducale des Cordeliers.  Then a prayer is said…”

Tomorrow, the couple will have their religious ceremony at the Basilique Saint-Epvre.  For more information about today’s event and more please visit the site Luxarazzi Luxembourg here (information should be posted soon.)   🙂
