Modern Love Wedding Inspiration with Unique Textures + High-Impact Color Blocking

Modern Love EventWith all of the postponements 2020 has brought, including The Jam Event and Modern Love Events, this team has been dying to get creative + play with this years’ trends. Jaime, the owner and creative of director of Wild Heart Events, came together with Jill, the mastermind behind Layered Vintage, to work with some high-impact color blocking + super unique textures and create the very first Modern Love Shootout!

If you’re not up to speed, the Modern Love Event is produced by a group of wedding professionals, offering interactive, Pinterest-worthy wedding experience for planning couples to draw inspiration from. Essentially, gathering all of the most talented people in the wedding industry + letting them fly free! But this time, with a twist…

Hosted by Luce Loft in San Diego, the Modern Love team shifted gears (partly because of COVID) and offered a shootout for local photographers + creatives {get the scoop on their next shootout at the bottom of the post!}. This comprehensive stylized photoshoot had next-level details, and incorporated our new favorite texture in styling: bubble wrap! With color, pattern, and texture on the forefront of the summer style, they brought in a fun, warm + sunny palette with mixed materials such as gingham and bubble wrap to level up their design game.

Let’s jump right into this colorfully modern wedding inspiration photographed by Sposto Photography:

Glowing Bride in Golden Tulle

Elizabeth Dye Wedding Dress
It’s not too surprising to see this bride completely GLOW in her chic, olive gown designed by Elizabeth Dye. The texture, structure + movement of this dress is completely mesmerizing.

Colorful Wedding Ceremony Backdrop

Juicy colors + modern shapes for this stunning ceremony setup! Jaime has been honing in her woodworking skills + built the ceremony backdrop as a summery play on plaid that Jill adorned with an ombre of florals in color-blocked assortments – complete with marigold + foraged fennel pods (sprayed pink!!) down the aisle. And that golden tulle on Elizabeth Dye ‘Opuntia’ gown is the perfect contrast needed to make the bride pop against the setting.

Velvety Modern Lounge Seating
