We obviously try not to play favorites here, but today’s styled shoot has quickly and easily crept to the top of our list. Bright colors, a beautiful couple in stylish attire, mid-century modern decor, topical accents, AND a glass geodesic dome? Stick a fork in me, I’m done. Behind all this goodness was the wonderful team of Indestructible Factory, Rodolfo Mcartney, Bodas de Cuento, and Los Peñotes, and we offer them our thanks!
From the event designers, Bodas de Cuento: Our inspiration for this style shoot came from two main ideas: the mid-century style combined with a tropical look. We chose Los Peñotes garden centre as a location, near Madrid (Spain), for being a very special place with different settings. We completely fell in love with the glass geometrical dome, which was used to set up both the tropical and the dessert table, and the old wheel with that derelict and decadent look and its orange tone.
We picked two different looks for our bride and groom to be; she was dressed by the young Spanish promise Alicia Rueda and he wore Pugil’s suits, mixing in one of the looks his classic with a twist morning dress with some renewed bright accessories and his braided hair. Speaking about the second look, we wanted to match a light-pink veil and a pamelahat; that combination allowed us to show in some pictures a veiled bride. We also went for a match between a crop top and a midi skirt, presenting a non-typical bride, with the inspiration of mid-century looks.
The stationery was designed using different watercolours and a handwritten lettering. We decorated the location using tropical plants and coloured flowers to stand out the green vegetation. As furniture, we used some fifties pieces and a tropical colour palette, avoiding the pastel colours typically used for weddings.
