A Connecticut company that offers bespoke invitation design and event planning for weddings and other special occasions is asking the romantically inclined to share their love stories on Facebook.
Entries may take the form of a written story, a photo or 15-second video. The seven entries that garner the most likes will receive a crystal bottle of signature perfume designed for M U R M U R A T I O N LTD, the firm founded by Brookfield resident René Hue.
Hue’s original vision 24 years ago was to sell elegant invitations embracing the preservation of vintage processes and artisanal techniques such as engraving, letterpress printing, and embossing, featuring them on unusual papers and carefully curated objects. Her designs and products were chosen for stationery collections offered by Neiman Marcus and other specialty retailers and Hue was soon being approached for her ideas on how to plan events with the same sensibilities.
M U R M U R A T I O N, which is also the description of flocks of starlings that fly in intricate patterns, is a luxury event design firm that brings together details of a celebration to create memorable events of emotional and visual power.
The request for love stories, at https://www.facebook.com/reneamyhue.murmurationltd, coincides with the autumnal equinox, signifying the harvesting or cultivating of ideas and intentions in a new cycle of growth. Participants are asked to share the hashtag #murmurlovestories.
The natural perfume being offered — “M U R M U R” — is presented in a limited-edition crystal bottle adorned with a sterling wire twining vine, steel cut beads, and a citrine crystal. The fragrance mingles notes of bergamot, violet leaves, rose petals, musk and amber.
Hue (@murmurationltd) is conducting the giveaway in advance of the company’s evolution with a relaunch and a new website in November.
