Last summer one Mid-South couple, Marcus and Genesha Dorris, headed for a romantic getaway to Paris. Once they arrived, the couple visited museums and took a few tours around the city. Genesha was only expecting a quick photograph in front of the Eiffel Tower, but was surprised by Marcus on one knee instead.
A year later, the couple got married on the rooftop of the Peabody Hotel. Family and friends gathered to witness the wedding ceremony.
The couple decided on a special wedding cake, one that would symbolize Marcus' proposal. The cake was modeled on the Eiffel Tower.
The cake was supposed to sit on the Peabody's rooftop, but plans soon changed once the temperature increased. So the six foot tall, buttercream cake wouldn't melt, workers moved it inside the Peabody Hotel's lobby.
Wedding guests said it was a night of "Paris in Memphis," that will always be remembered.
