We’re kicking off 4th of July weekend with a bit of ultra modern Independence Day inspiration straight from the rooftops of LA. This shoot from Jessica Lynne Studios, Inessa Nichols Design, and Blue Box Events trades in the traditional red, white, and blue for a palette of black, white, gold, and a burst of greenery for an ultra mod feel. Prepare yourself to be inspired and have a happy 4th, all!

From the photographer, Jessica of Jessica Lynne Studios: The City of Angels shoot is inspiration for the modern LA bride who wants to embrace her *own* style on her wedding day. With this shoot, we sought to create something that would appeal that trendy LA couple who frequents Verve Coffee, lives in a historic artist loft and could be found meandering around the flower market on Saturday mornings.

To achieve this very minimal, modern LA vibe, we took bridal style somewhere different – keeping our florals to only greenery, letting the groom wear his favorite denim jacket instead of a tux & choosing a venue with the very best view of the city.

One of my favorite parts of the shoot was the Mondrian-inspired greenery wall that Inessa created. Not to mention, the sassy black & white American flag tapestry from Urban Outfitters used as tablecloth and most of all ending on a helipad overlooking the entire City of Angels. We are so thrilled to share the outcome – we had the time of our lives creating this!

    I think this styled shoot is absolutely lovely. I love the use of greenery, rich textures and gold and I think the denim jacket and less formal dresses are a great touch. I’d like to caution the stylists, though, against using the American flag as a table covering. As a veteran, I absolutely stand behind your right to freedom of speech and I know you mean no disrespect in using the flag in that manner. However, I encourage you to be sensitive to the fact that we bring our fallen home in flag-draped coffins, and the way it resembled that in some of the photos really shocked me. If this were used at an actual wedding or event where a veteran might be present, it would likely be extremely upsetting to them. As a designer, I totally understand the aesthetic you were going for, but I’d suggest perhaps using a round table next time instead.

    Susan,

    Thank you so much for your comment. I so appreciate your insight into this area as well as the kindness with which you address it. I agree, in light of your comments, that a round table could have given some of the same aesthetic without a subconscious reference to the fallen.

    Sincerely,

    Blue Box Events & Jessica Lynne Studios
