What do you get when you combine industrial style with a prominent fuchsia palette? An inspiration shoot from Marisa Belle Photography that has us amazed. After getting inspired from a hardware store trip, Marisa thought of an idea of printing wedding invitations on sheet metal, and the rest is history. The entire team pulled together contrasting ideas of vintage and modern through style and lush flowers from The Wildflower AZ, crafting a shoot that will feed your whimsical-loving side while also breathing life into your minimalistic and contemporary side!
From the photographer, Marisa Belle Photography: This shoot was inspired during a trip to Home Depot of all places. I was looking for new knobs for my cabinets and wandered into the sheet metal section of the store. I was attracted to the dark, oily color of the sheet metal and wondered, “What would a wedding invitation look like on sheet metal?” I got with my favorite calligrapher Jenna Underwood of Paper and Posies Designs and she created the stunning invitation suite incorporating a leather envelope, escort cards, and copper napkin rings and this shoot was born!
I picked the beautiful Warehouse 215 @ Bentley Projects because of its restored brick, matching sheet metal doors, and clean lines. It made for a stunning backdrop! The bridal look was designed and curated by Risa Kostis of RISTYLE Consulting, a fantastic wedding day stylist based out of Phoenix. She went with me to Bella Lilly Bridal–a local boutique–and picked a jaw dropping, classic dress the most perfect detailing! The jewelry is vintage and pairs fabulously with the dress and the vintage aesthetic of the shoot. It was important to me to incorporate color because warehouses can seem monochromatic and dark but Nicole and Selena of The Wildflower AZ completely nailed the floral design! It was beautiful and wild and colorful which brought the warehouse to life in my opinion.
Along those same lines of incorporating color, Matiana Mitchell Designs created a amazing colorful canvas painting that we used as the backdrop for the ceremony space. The colors pop off the restored brick, bringing a slightly modern edge to the space. I love every aspect of this shoot but the most incredible part of it is definitely the cake! Haley Cairns of Heartsweet Cakes is the next Sylvia Weinstock in my opinion! She has a true gift for creating sugar flowers that could easily be mistaken for real flowers and for this shoot she pulled out all the stops covering her three tiered cake in ranunculus, anemones, sweet pea, and roses. It’s a must see for sure!
