Wedding Season might be coming to a close, but the memorable images will inspire us until next time. From Weddings in Houston to Houston Brides Modern Luxury, and even our own wedding professionals’ reception, the beautiful wedding displays were dazzling! Still, with all of the wedding opulence the theme remained constant – love is all you need! Please enjoy these gorgeous images from last week’s Houston Brides Modern Luxury Grandeur Wedding Show!
The event was held at the elegant Astorian and the theme was taken from the building’s industrial architectural vibe. We decided to play-up the building’s raw beauty by infusing a bit of our own. We looked to the Pont des Arts in Paris, at the Locks of Love Bridge. Since we are a hardware store it was a lot of fun pulling from our hardware department to prepare the show backdrop. We literally brought both ends of our store together with the fine china and crystal and locks and wire! The juxtaposition of it all was fun, and even more so to the attendees who were familiar with the famous bridge in Paris! …Regardless of knowing or not knowing about the bridge, it was a fun conversation piece that seemed to make people smile. Mission accomplished!
[A quick note about the actual bridge in Paris:
Thousands of lovers from across the world visit the Pont des Arts every year and seal their love by attaching a lock carrying their names to its railing and throwing the key in the Seine. The Pont des Arts crosses the French capital’s river Seine just in front of the Louvre museum and is known the world over for its “locks of love”.]
It tied in nicely to the event venue, the Astorian:
The view above at night is pretty amazing, but it is worth noting that the view during the day is pretty special too! Featured below is the setting selected by Two Be Wed for an upcoming Houston Brides Modern Luxury Magazine feature. It was picked from our gift shop and we are delighted to be part of the shoot.
If the view above isn’t clear enough, then look at this lovely image taken by Le Zu Photography!
Below is where the fashion show took place featuring talented designers like Houston-based David Peck and beautiful Houston Boutiques such Mia Bridal Couture, Now & Forever Bridal Boutique, Impressions Bridal Boutique, Bella Bridesmaids and more!
Back at the Bering’s booth, we continued on with the overall color scheme and theme! Here is a close-up taken from our booth. Balushka Paper Floral Artistry continues to be a beautiful option for brides! And we are thrilled to report that Royal Crown Derby and L’Objet fine china are also as in demand as ever before among Bering’s wedding registry selections!
With so many gorgeous crystal and glassware to choose from, Waterford was selected by Two Be Wed for the photo-shoot for this event. We decided to continue on and display Waterford at our booth too!
With so many lovely pieces featured at our booth we wanted to point out a few pieces that have not yet been mentioned. A new figurine for Herend, as well as Bering’s, is the precious hand painted wedding cake (available in multiple colors)! Brides and wedding guests alike have been loving the newest piece!!
Last but not least, did you see our YETI Coolers? We admit that they do not exactly fit the theme, BUT we assure you that the male attendees were happy to see something suitable for their needs and interests! And to be honest, more and more brides-to-be are adding them to their registries on their own. They are about as good-looking as a cooler gets and as you know, “YETI‘s are wildly stronger to keep cool longer.” Plus, technically speaking it is a couple’s registry, not a groom’s or bride’s, but a couple. …To that end, be on the lookout for more Couples Registry centered marketing by Bering’s!
LG Entertainment lit the show up with their amazing lighting and sound. Their very own, D.J. LG kept the crowd alive with his upbeat mix of music!
Below are the three ladies who made the event one to remember! They are Houston Brides Modern Luxury’s Elizabeth Graham, Molly Johnson and Evan Wetmore. The trio thanked everyone for attending and kicked off the fashion show!
Throughout the night, guests had the option of bidding on silent auction items benefiting Dress for Success Houston!
Each guest received a swag bag filled with wonderful items. We were excited about giving each guest one of our Bering’s 75th anniversary coffee mugs with our anniversary blend coffee, as well as a gift card for an Embossed Graphics monogrammed notepad! …And let’s not forget to compliment Two Be Wed for the darling bags everything was packaged up in!!
*We loved this sign on Tease Salon‘s table!
It was a fun night that left everyone wanting even more beautiful wedding inspiration!
