Thank you to Sanaz Safari of Grey Harlowe Collective for this stunning wedding editorial submission.
“The inspiration behind this concept was modern minimalism and effortless romance. Muted tones with textured, layered fabrics portrayed the ethereal and whimsical aesthetic that I envisioned.
By intentionally promoting a lack of contrast for the tablescape and decor, we were able to generate balance through the pops of color: the pink pampas grass and dried marigolds; Dried gypsophila, natural colored pampas grass, and dried bunny tail grass were also used. By solely working with dried florals in the creation of the two installations, the bride’s bouquet and table florals, I maintained the importance of keeping this editorial eco-friendly. The venue added to our aesthetic, as it was an open, industrial space adding depth to our concept.
The wedding dresses were by designer Tara Lauren from Everly Fine Bridal. We chose dresses that embodied romance and bohemian flair and allowed movement. Hair and makeup were subtle, neutral and relaxed, allowing the bride’s natural beauty to shine through.
Menu cards were kept simple with textured cotton rag paper.
The focus on minimalism was also conveyed through the use of jewelry, which consisted only of statement earrings and a solitaire engagement ring.
Overall, I was able to visualize a concept that stayed on trend through minimalism, while creating depth and balance through the use of negative space. “
