We love color as much as the next gal; but, there’s something so classically cool about a neutral wedding. Before you write off neutrals as ‘boring,’ consider what they’re paired with. For today’s wedding editorial, we’re exploring a classic neutral palette of ivory, fresh whites + muted mauve with tons of texture! Could adding texture be the key to nailing a neutral wedding?
We’re always onboard with a wedding vision that’s fearless! The team behind today’s inspiration tackled this neutral palette beautifully, while adding on contrasting styles + loads of texture. Here’s more behind the inspiration from McKenzie Jayne Designs: I was inspired by the raw minimal vibe that the South of France inspires. Conversely, Calgary is filled with a lot of moody palettes; including limited lighting, dark woods, rustic florals, etc. The wedding season is limited to literally 2-3 months here as the weather is so cold year round – this inspired me to bring a light airy raw foundation to this shoot. Encouraging brides to think outside the box, and still have their dream wedding in a space they would have never thought was possible.
It’s modern minimalism at The Commons with every added texture we never knew we needed – let’s see it from the lens of Sarah Pukin Photography:
Deckled Edge Wedding Invitations
This cool, neutral wedding invitation suite by McKenzie Jayne Designs adds instant texture – with a sweeping ethereal vibe that we can never deny.
Would you *rock* an engagement ring like this? This rose gold number from Alberta Diamond Exchange has so much vintage character – we love it!
This is neutral color palette heaven, you guys! Flower Artistry Co absolutely nails the ethereal-meets-minimalist wedding vibes here with the light, wispy bouquet. The florals only get better in the ceremony installation paired with soft, draping textures.
Modern Ceremony with Loads of Texture
So silky smooth this Blush & Raven wedding dress! The textural mix of satin + lace pair beautifully with the cool, modern venue. And we’re loving that sweet chiffon sash for added intrigue.
Soft Amber Lighting
Cool Reception + Grazing Table
Holy grazing table! This spread by Brie & Banquet is so welcoming + colorful. We love seeing all the juicy, charcuterie treats pop against the light, neutral reception tablescape.
These tabletop pieces from Modern Luxe Rentals look clean + stylish against the ghost chairs and modern venue.
We’d use this display on our dining tables! The varying pottery vases paired with dried florals is a cool look.
So Much Texture
Pretty Sweet Co. topping off this modern wedding inspiration with a sweet ‘lil cake. Can you guess our favorite cutting cake topping? Dried flowers!
