I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to share this styled shoot with you all, my dear lovelies, and the day is finally here! An all-star team of vendors including Chellise Michael Photography, Viva Max Weddings, and Rountree Flowers put together some wedding inspiration full of creativity, whimsy, modern details and hints of geometric influence, and we couldn’t be more in love with the result.
From the event stylist, Viva Max Weddings: The recently expanded LIC event space Attic Studios is a combination of a cool raw loft space and a venue that has character and warmth. Clean white walls are balanced with wooden floors and a funky bar. This is why I wanted to use this great space to present a wedding look that is modern, funky, fun yet still bridal and elegant – a contrast that I know can mesh well in the wedding world. Heather of Attic Studios, Jessie of Rountree Flowers, and I, Viva Max Weddings, began to design a wedding look that focused on lines and color – we wanted something perfect for a couple that is creative, romantic, with a touch bohemian and not afraid of a little spunk. Our vision became something like boho romance with a modern art twist.
Our color palette included a spectrum of blues (ice blue, grey-blue, periwinkle blue, denim blue, navy blue) paired with bright chartreuse, hot pink and gold. This presented a cool tone with a lot of pop. It felt unique but also could work well across seasons. We really wanted to play with the use of line. Strong lines vs. Soft lines — this represented this blend of modern and romantic looks. During the ceremony, Rountree Flowers created an impressive and unique backdrop of soft ethereal fabrics draped behind the couple and then, as a creative contrast, we hung colorful string art dream-catcher-like details that really added impact and visual interest to the ceremony moment (great DIY project). The ceremony backdrop became something memorable and full of personality and the couple could hang the catchers in their home after the wedding to forever remember their beautiful day.
This design theme continued in the reception room. Since the space has fabulous windows we wanted to bring the guest’s eye upward to appreciate the NYC view. We decided it was necessary to take advantage of Attic Studio’s ceiling, so Rountree built wonderful golden geometric structures to frame cool hanging Edison light bulbs. The result was stunning and interesting to the eye. Those geometric lines were repeated on her table scape with gold cubes from CB2 and hand painted geometric shapes on the table runners. The lines looked bold and really great. The addition of Rountree’s elegant and soft floral arrangements beautifully complimented our color palette.
Wedding mornings can be stressful and every bride and groom deserves a little pampering on their special day. HanaKyle is a message therapist that specializes in wedding day jitters. I had her come in the morning and give our bride, groom, best man and maid of honor a little back-rub and reflexology before the big day began. Message therapy is a wonderful gift for a couple that enjoys a little relaxation. Everything came together beautifully. By combining the talents of so many amazing wedding vendors we made a shoot that really showed off the versatility of Attic Studios while presenting a look perfect for our boho artsy urban couple that is deeply in love.
