Bold black and white up against neutral shades of beige, brown and warm amber – that was the color palette for this modern take on neutral wedding inspiration. Fetelle Designs wanted to showcase a classic wedding scheme in a new and edgy way and boy did they do it! They completely transformed the minimalist space of Alleylujah (we would like to note that at the time of the publication of this article, the venue has closed down) with insanely gorgeous floral installations, chic yet cozy lounge spaces, and delectable sweets and sips! Nikki with Fetelle shares more about the inspiration:
We’ve seen so many neutral shoots but wanted to switch it up with a modern and edgy twist. The black backdrops at Alleylujah, a hidden venue gem in the heart of Southern California, was perfect to add the edge. While the classic dress looks from Tara Lauren + the perfect glam by Veiled Vanity Artistry helped add in the perfect touch of modern simplicity. Overall, we wanted this shoot to show future brides how gorgeous an edgy but modern wedding can be.

This raw edge invitation suite by Type J Creative is so elegant! The cool paper treatment and gold leaf detailing adds something unique to a minimalist font and layout.
Neutrals can be so much more than black, white and brown! Here we can see how all of the subtle hues of cappuccino, peach, blush, amber and cream come into play.
Doesn’t our Groom look dapper in this all-white ensemble from Friar Tux?
Meanwhile, this stunning gown from Tara Lauren makes our bride look like shes floating on clouds! Heavenly!!
Here’s where the neutral wedding inspiration steps up to the next level! How stunning is this ceremony installation? The Bloom of Time used a combination of dried and fresh elements to add texture and interest. At GWS, we love a good installation piece.

An Edgy Setting
Aren’t the black walls of this venue dramatic?! We love this shot for newlywed portraits!
To go along with the modern vibes of the setting and attire, Veiled Vanity Artistry styled sleek and subtle hair and make up looks to make the couple look red carpet ready!
Crisp White Walls demand a stunning setup, and Collective Rentals was there to deliver! Isn’t this the perfect neutral wedding inspiration for a lounge space?? FYI- gold accents go beautifully with a neutral palette!
Sip, Sip, Hooray!
Nothing screams fun like a champagne tower!! This pretty setup and the rest of the cocktails for the day came from Bottles + Bloom.
Is that a gold leaf detail we spy? Love it!!
Neutral Wedding Reception
Don’t underestimate the power of selecting the perfect tablescape pieces. Details like the white wine glasses, white dipped/ gold flatware and marble salad plates totally set this look off!
How to get the floral look? Ask your florist to incorporate lots of different flower varieties and textures! Tell them you’re not afraid to add in unusual details like gold painted greenery!
