The Makings of a Wedding

From time-to-time we feature couples registered with us and/or have chosen to do their wedding invitations with our stationery team. It is certainly fun blogging about our Bering’s couple’s proposals, as well as sharing their beautiful registry pieces and stationery. Equally exciting is having the opportunity to share images from wedding photo-shoots that we are part of. When Natalie Dawley of Two Be Wed, a premier wedding planning company, asked us to share our fine china and crystal in a feature photo-shoot at The Astorian, we didn’t think twice!

While we’ve been fortunate enough to work with Two Be Wed in the past, the shoot was made even sweeter partnering with Now and Forever Bridal Boutique, Sculpting with Time Videography, Oui Floral, Monrreal & Co., Johanna Terry Events, Party Cloths, Sugary and Chic Boutique and the extremely talented photographer, Joey T, of Joey T Photography! In fact, the shoot required so many talented wedding professionals that it actually served as a great reminder as to what all our Bering’s couples are going through in planning their own weddings. There are so many details that go into planning a wedding, that we often forget about what all is involved. Thank goodness there is no shortage of talent and friendly service when it comes to all things weddings in Houston, Texas!

As mentioned above, it truly takes a village to create the images featured below, not just any village – a team of visionaries. And well, The Astorian certainly added to the grandeur. Its industrial chic architectural design proved to be the perfect canvas. In fact, when Houston Brides asked Two Be Wed to pull items for the featured shoot, Natalie Dawley drew inspiration from the building, and did so in the most elegant way. We are certain that you will agree. Enjoy the images!
