Moody Summer Wedding Inspiration
My heart may have skipped a bit when I arrived at the Candoro Marble Factory for this moody summer wedding inspiration shoot. There is nothing I love more than a modern minimalist space transformed. We accomplished this transformation at Candoro Marble Factory with beautiful florals, moody color palettes, and modern calligraphy.
The Inspiration Team
The focus of this shoot was to create a rich palette of color that would compliment a number of things. Such as, the bareness of the Candor Marble Factory, while also transitioning out of pastel summer colors to the earthy tones of fall. However, instead of transitioning into the traditional yellow and orange that fall is known for, the creative humans at TeamWedding and The Bride Link chose to pair light pink roses with dark red hues. I especially love the bold, dark hues Roses and Lace used for the bridal look, especially in conjuncture with the elegant beaded dress from the Gilden Gown. And when you add in a dapper groom dressed to the nines from Regal Tuxedo, it brings the whole look together.
The Carriage House
Let’s not forget the amazing decor set up inside the carriage house. Twinkle lights flow along with the ceiling that is elementary for a romantic look. The tablescape is anchored with a lush centerpiece from LB Floral, and it is complemented with plums, grapes, and pomegranate for a simply effortless aesthetic. The geometric black plate setting and glassware from All Occasions Party & Tent Rentals gives the tablescape a modern look. The plate settings are topped off with lovely calligraphy on plums from Brittany Ivey Designs.
The TriStar Scribe continued the visual art of calligraphy to the seating chart. I was absolutely amazed to watch her complete this gorgeous marble piece with her stunning handwork, which tied in so simply with the invitations from Image Matters. Inc.
Thank you to all of the vendors that put this moody summer wedding inspiration together. I look forward to working with all of you in the future!
