COMMITTED! Portland’s Alternative Wedding Event returns on October 23, 2015 to Castaway Portland. With the supreme court recently declaring the ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional, we anticipate this being our biggest year yet. COMMITTED! is a resource for all couples planning their wedding day. We also welcome singles and allies who support equal rights in marriage. Wedding planning is transforming into more sophisticated process, leading to a much more elaborate event. It’s still important to feature “traditional ideas,” while still keep up on the newest trends and ideas.
COMMITTED features wedding professionals in over 15 categories and will showcase styles ranging from the well-recognized traditions to the hottest ideas in the industry. The event will host three fashion shows, at 5:30pm, 6:30pm and 7:30pm, where same sex and traditional couples will walk the runway together. Most importantly, each fashion show will portray a twist on traditional Bride & Groom wear, sparking inspiration and innovation in those aiming for a wedding out of the ordinary.
“We have a lot of fun at our events and COMMITTED! is loaded with interactive experiences that are sure to inspire and evoke an energetic atmosphere. We celebrate Mr.& Mr., Mrs. & Mrs. and Mr. & Mrs. – who are we to judge?” shares Misty Damico, Owner of Luxe Event Productions
Long-time sponsor My Bartender adds, “When asked if we wanted to participate in Committed again this year we couldn’t respond fast enough. Committed is the ONLY wedding show in Portland that doesn’t feel like a wedding show. It’s more of a “get inspired” party with a purpose. At Committed you will find swanky cocktails, fashion forward, never-before-seen wedding décor as well as the best wedding professionals you’ll find anywhere in the Pacific Northwest. The vibe at COMMITTED is like walking into a Vegas night club; with awe inspiring lighting and cutting edge music you’ll definitely want to stay awhile.”
Luxe Event Productions takes the otherwise known wedding show to the next level and beyond. Luxe produced wedding events are not your typical “show” in that their energy and atmosphere inspires attendees to take action and to be original in their event planning. Luxe Event Productions is a full service Wedding and Special Event Production Company that produces four of the Northwest’s most celebrated wedding events: Luxe Bridal Event in Portland and Eugene, COMMITTED! and Marry ME!; as well as Portland’s newest Halloween Event, TheLabPortland.com.
