Today, it’s ALL about the visually striking, with a touch of avant garde. For those that are wanting to go for a modern wedding theme, but with a splash of color, this is for you! The team over at GATHER Events was initially inspired by the bold use of colors + playful monochromatic palettes found in high-fashion editorials and product styling campaigns. She shares: Something this daring is rarely represented in the bridal and event design world, and we felt inspired and challenged to really push our limits and cross boundaries to find a way to bring in these modern concepts and translate them into a relatable event.
From the bold installations to unconventional model styling, we wanted this to be a personal artistic expression as much as wedding design inspiration for future brides. Since the goal was to create something bold and break out of the “wedding comfort zone,” the team went straight for bright vibrant colors, which were carefully color blocked and paired together.
Teal, bubblegum pink, persimmon, crisp white, goldenrod, and navy. This zesty color palette has all the fun of summer with the moodiness of fall, which was perfectly captured in this elegant invitation suite by Swell Press.
Stepping away from what is conventional, the team wanted to incorporate a bridal bouquet that had the base of a gold hoop. Love this look as much as us? Create a similar “bouquet” with our DIY!
Felisa from Of the Flowers combined natural blooms with painted posies, along with greenery in each of the color blocked palettes to give the arrangements an almost otherworldly depth of color and texture.
Instead of a flower crown, makeup + hair artist, Yuri Janice, crafted the COOLEST floral mohawk.
GATHER Events tells us: When thinking about how to incorporate the color block concept into our floral scheme without losing interest, we decided to focus on form and texture.
Side Note: How GORGEOUS is that bridal cape?! Seriously swooning over this gown from LOHO Bride.
Forgoing a traditional arch or structure, the team created an environment that the couple could move around in out of laser-cut acrylic shapes and textured floral panels.
All of the dresses that were picked featured dramatic silhouettes and interesting fabrics — like you would see in a haute couture editorial.
The tablescape was whimsical and minimalistic with glassware from Borrowed Blu + simple Ikebana style arrangements propped up on colored wooden discs.
Spoken Glass laser-etched those menus on frosted pink plexi demi-circles. Isn’t that the neatest touch?
The Pretty in Pink Lounge
The bubblegum pink lounge with pieces from Circa Vintage Rentals is too chic for words (especially against the modern concrete walls).
So haute, right?! :) A huge thanks to the creatives behind this editorial for showing us all that you can do with blocks of color!
