Last October The Breakers hosted a special three-day event for wedding industry professionals called engage!10. The luxury wedding business summit attracted the attendance of wedding magazine editors, top celebrity planners, industry photographers and an array of wedding bloggers.
The summit culminated with a magnificent formal dinner. After three days of innovation and creativity, The Breakers Wedding and Special Events team were challenged to create something truly unique and special for the evening.
The inspiration for the dinner was creating a Louis XIV dinner with a modern twist, calling it “Louis Pop.” The goal of the evening was to inspire the attendees with over-the-top elements, elegant decor and an overall fun experience.
Enjoy a look back at this spectacular evening and how to recreate the Louis Pop theme in just six steps…
Step one: The Chairs… Louis XIV style on the left, and our modern twist at the right
Step two: A Formal Grand Entrance
Step Three: Timeless Elegance
Step Four: Exquisite Details
Step Five: A Sensational Meal
For entertainment, the guests were serenaded with dueling violins, awed by a high-energy stomp performance and dazzled by break dancers – keeping everyone on their toes throughout the five-hour reception. Which leads us to the last step…
Step Six: Dazzling Entertainment
It took an entire team effort to create this fabulous party – starting with the Director of Food and Beverage for Catering and Banquet Operations Joan Bever and her team of catering managers, to Executive Chef Jeff Simms and his team for the sensational culinary menu, and Director of Event Services Joy Cudahy and her team for the stunning design elements.
Now you’re ready to turn Louis XIV into Louis Pop!
