February – It is the season of LOVE and we are beyond excited about it!
We started Lumière – A Curation of Love, simply because of our passion to celebrate —
the love for style
the love of East meets West
the love to embrace culture with a dose of modernity
the love between 2 souls
This week, we congratulate our very first Lumière Bride, Janelle, on her engagement anniversary. The surprise Valentines proposal was vividly remembered not just by the couples themselves, but by thousands of family and friends, as it was broadcasted live on TV. Janelle thought she was to enjoy breakfast with a friend - until her then boyfriend, Stan, walked in with the KTLA/5 morning news crew. He brought out a guitar and started serenading her as the cameras rolled. Lights shining on the couple as Janelle tried to grasp what was going on. With Southern California watching on live TV, Stan got down on one knee and popped the question.
Fast forward to the wedding, we were fortunate to witness the love-filled day of this sweet couple. With the presence of dear friends and family, the sentimental moments constantly gave us teary eyes through out the day. It's not about over-the-top centerpiece nor lavish wedding cake. It was the genuine loving emotion coming from the couples and their family that touched the hearts of 500+ guests. The couple defined what a wedding truly means.
Janelle selected one of our red lace Qipao as her evening gown for the reception. She looked absolutely stunning in the open back flared hem dress with glittering beading. The simple silhouette of this gown allowed her to feel comfortable roaming around greeting her guests.
"The dresses in this collection are top notch, elegant, and make you feel beautiful on your wedding day! Working with Lumière was one of the best experiences during my wedding planning process. They made finding my evening dress completely stress free! If you're a bride, don't second guess getting one of these dresses. You will NOT regret it!"
