So we may or may not be catapulting you into design wonderland today — well all due to the talented ladies of Lovelyfest Event Design! This modern, color-blocked fete for The Wedding Standard is not your average dinner party. It’s chock full of rich textures, moody colors and unexpected details to make your head spin in the best kind of way. We just can’t get enough of these images from Anna Delores Photography giving us a sneak peek into the clean, velvety tablescapes + boho lounge vignettes. And #OHWOWYES to the perfectly executed combination of metallics, sharp neutrals and milky pastels. Cheers forever to this dream dinner celebration!
From the photographer, Emily of Anna Delores Photography: The designers, sisters Stephanie and Natalie of Lovelyfest, wanted to create an intimate, moody dinner party with a variety of textures and colors. Especially because it was a celebration with other vendors, they wanted to go outside of the box and plan something a little different from current wedding trends. They wanted to push the envelope on style and color, and knew they’d have more fun with an unexpected, exciting palette. Their inspiration came from the venue itself: Halter Ranch. The focal color of the dinner tables was a rich teal blue, which complemented the rust-red silos and brought out their beautiful texture. Another inspiration was the current color-blocking trend; we don’t see it much in weddings yet, but Stephanie and Natalie love it in other aspects of design. They also brought the color-blocking concept to the dining chairs and napkin shades, as well. White chairs got mauve napkins and copper chairs got white napkins. The result was fresh and different. Trumpet Vine Catering created a menu of family-style tapas courses, and Lovelyfest created a booklet-style menu with custom colored silk tassels for everyone to peruse and reference during dinner service.
A moment of silence for these speckled sweets that deserve our infinite respect. Obviously we’re still not over this event (and spoiler alert: we won’t be for a long time), so to tide us all over, let’s all appreciate this video from Steelhead Cinema below!
