Though I’m always a big fan of bold + bright colors, I also have a deep appreciation for the simplicity + beauty of soft, neutral hues. This shoot, photographed by Kate Ignatowski Photography, is a perfect example of using detail + texture in place of punchy tones. The team layered monochromatic shades of off-white fabric to create a romantic ceremony backdrop + used gauzy cheesecloth as a cool twist on a table runner. So many pretty + unique ideas for you to be inspired by!
From the photographer, The venue (Knockdown Center in Queens, New York) was my inspiration + starting off point – it’s a partially restored glass factory with a beautiful industrial feel (and the lighting was amazing!). We paired the gritty, industrial feel of the space with natural neutrals, inspired by a recent trip to Restoration Hardware where their showroom was perfectly decorated with neutral shades. We rented mostly off-white decor from Patina Vintage Rentals, including an old mantle for the welcome/place-cards + favor area, a Swedish love seat for the lounge area, an old cabinet for the cocktail and cake setup, mix-matched off-white cafe chairs, + an old farm-table. It all looked so beautiful against the old brick…
Lilli from Mimosa Floral Design Studio used off-white painted tin cans as vases + an arrangement of white and blush florals. She included off-white candles on the table along with glass tea light holders hung at varying lengths over the table.
To keep with the natural theme, sprigs of mint + thyme accented the cocktails. And the beautiful cake was decorated with ruffled shades of off-white. Loving the subtle ombre effect!
Huge thanks to the talented team below for sharing this gorgeous neutral wedding inspiration with us today!
