While we love an epic nature backdrop as much as the next girl, we know that some of you are currently planning a city wedding soirée and we’re happy to provide a little eye candy + inspo just for you on GWS today! When Little White Dress Shop announced they’d be carrying J.Mendel’s wedding dress collection, photographer Lisa O’Dwyer jumped at the chance to collaborate on a shoot featuring the pretty gowns and knew that Gabby of Banks and Leaf would be just the stylist to collaborate with!
Lisa explains more about their vision, We wanted to present a modern cityscape in a feminine way with pinks and simple greenery, and the architectural modern look of the J.Mendel style. Plum Sage Flowers did the florals, and Banks + Leaf did the seating design. The jewelry and shoes are Marchesa from LWD. We used two different models so that we could have the style of the modern city chic bride with different skin tones and hair/looks. I wanted the challenge of capturing a modern architectural city look, with the soft romance of traditional film photography…
We’re loving the clean, modern lines of this strapless wedding dress! And doesn’t it pair so nicely with a simple astilbe bouquet?
Another modern dress, great jewels and a green fern bouquet FTW! These bridal looks are definitely pin-worthy!
Major love for these laser cut shoes!
Fun inspiration for a Friday, right?! Big thanks to the amazing team below for sharing!

Thanks so much for sharing! I love that this downtown Denver setting has the awesome architecture of the bridge and buildings, but the nature of the canal too. I think the look is prefect for a feminine modern bride who loves the city and nature too!!!
