Most of the time, we hear about little girls growing up dreaming about their wedding day – what dress they’ll wear, their flowers, and all of the other frilly details that a wedding includes. Our goal for this shoot was to keep the groom in mind, too. After all, they make up half of the most important couple at a wedding! We chose to include darker, edgier details & textures that showcase the groom’s style. The venue, the Elkspace in the Sentinel Hotel, was the ideal modern and clean setting – with black accents and textured white walls.
For florals, we asked to stick to only greenery and foliage. The variety of textures that For the Love of Florals was able to incorporate in the centerpiece, bouquet, and installation made it clear that the absence of blooms is anything but boring and ordinary. By Angeline provided unique ring sets for the bride & groom which included rough-cut raw diamonds & recycled gold. Elizabeth Leese Bridal sent us a custom gown with clean details that highlighted the bride’s femininity without detracting from the overall theme.
Vintage Meets Modern provided a lounge setup that we accented with interesting textures, along with a large display rack which we styled with a luxurious grazing board & Inna Shapoval’s raw & vegan chocolates. The tablescape included several handmade items: a leather runner accented with a voile runner adorned our custom artisan ten-foot wooden tables, and Eunice Rairdon’s hand-lettered & water-colored menus. Finally, all of the dark, edgy, luxurious details were perfectly captured and balanced with a light and bright photographing style using a hybrid of digital and film.
