When you throw around the words Moroccan, geometric, metallic + geode, you’re definitely speaking our language. And today’s unique wedding inspiration, captured by Lauren Scotti + designed by Kelsey Events, incorporated all of those pretty things – and more – into one very fun + glam editorial! Initially inspired by the Pantone color of the year, radiant orchid, the team wanted to pull together a refreshing setting that would highlight this stunning, edgy hue of purple, and pair it with gems + stones, all the best kinds of metallic details and, of course, a little Moroccan flare. We’re pretty much in love + know you will be, too…
The bouquet included so many fun textures, but the best being those gorgeous, faceted geodes!
From Lauren, I wanted to bring some new elements to the shoot that were not your standard wedding day look. Something that was pulled from real life + fashion. I started getting really excited about rocks and geodes and we began to look everywhere. You can easily find these gems in all kinds of accessories right now, but our search for the right inspiration continued. Finally one evening Missy Fine’s geode replica charger plates popped up in my instagram feed and I about died! I called her first thing in the morning to bring her on board and she was thrilled to be a part. Not to mention she owned tons of gorgeous rocks and gems AND made a 5 foot replica of the geode for our ceremony backdrop!
Loving those lush garlands, both decorating the table + overhead! And, of course, we’re always fans of a good Moroccan rug pulling a scene together!
Missy Fine’s custom replica geode chargers really are something else, right?!
Pile on the geodes, please!
Gorgeous, right?! Thanks to all of the talented creatives below for sharing their take on the Pantone color of the year with us today! Is anyone out there using this rich, bold hue as part of their wedding color palette?
