What makes an intimate wedding feel like the best opportunity to go BIG with fashion? We’ll get back to you on that one. But today we’ll explore the mystic cliffs of Big Sur with an eye for modern art. If modern art doesn’t do it for you, this convertible wedding jumpsuit sure will!
Amandarose from AGS Photo Art shares some insight behind this intimate wedding editorial: Much inspiration comes from the thought of a really modern couple who want an intimate wedding celebration. A wedding that feels timeless. We’re also inspired by monochromatic, modern art. The shoot was designed around a monochromatic blue color scheme with clean lines to feel classic + timeless, but also luxurious + modern.
With planning + design assistance from Pocketful of Plans, this editorial almost carries the sound of blue waves crashing at Big Sur. Sink into all the modern art-inspired flowers and design. But above all, imagine yourself rocking the hell out of this convertible wedding jumpsuit. Another key point – it has a detachable skirt! Let’s get to it, shall we?!
Kicking things off with one-of-a-kind origami-inspired wedding stationary! Firstly, you feel the linen paper, which feels luxurious. Secondly, you see origami folds and feel immediately transported into an artistic setting. It’s modern art magic! Modern stationery by Jay Monique Creative.
Convertible Wedding Jumpsuit
Leaning into one color, like blue, is such a classic yet modern design approach! We’re no strangers to the magic of monochromatic. To illustrate the beautiful transition between shades of blue, we have this elegant, ice jumpsuit by Alexia Maria. The wedding jumpsuit has a removable overskirt and classic bow. Just wow!
To complement the model’s natural striking beauty, Seascape Flowers created a statement bouquet + complementing dried floral crown. Here’s how to really create a unique bridal experience for the modern + fashion-forward bride, who wants to push artistic interpretations of the color blue!
Feeling this white tuxedo from Generation Tux. It’s a verrry classy look!
Blue Monochrome Intimate Wedding Setting
You know we love texture. This tablescape brings the texture of the modern art paintings to life with floral sprawling down the table. By using a mix of textures with swirled blue glass chargers + painted blue florals, the tablescape becomes a work of art in its own right. To add that opulent feel, the table is finished with modern gold rentals from Chic Event rentals.
Clearly, the hand-painted, modern art inspiration carries through to the cake decor from Tart and Tin. Bold brush strokes and 3D styling is dyed wafer paper. It’s all the perfect icing on the proverbial blue cake!
Particularly obsessed with dried floral crown! Dried floral crowns are a THING.
A venture to Big Sur can really never go wrong. Here, golden hour captures the couple along the rugged cliff. What’s better than the natural blue of the ocean to complement the icy blue wedding jumpsuit?!
Not only is it important to consider Big Sur for an elopement, but also fashion-forward intimate weddings! Pick a color (and color) and let your minds + style wonder. Magic truly does happen.
