Modern Minimalist Wedding Inspiration with Layered Pastels
Today’s modern minimalist wedding inspiration features such darling details as a layered pastel palette, sleek wood+ iron bistro chairs, shimmery rice paper cake accents and a ceremony backdrop that’ll have you saying “I can’t believe it’s not fresh” in less than .00002832 seconds. Mmmmhmmm. The spritely ground floral arrangements are composed of real feel silk flowers from our friends over at Afloral! If you’re wondering how you can blend fine art designs with a modern romantic + minimalist feel, look no further than these scrumptious ideas from longtime Ruffled vendor, Taylor Dawn Design, below!
Beauty emanates from every angle of Park Studios‘ Atlanta space (dressed to the nines!), and Laura Watson Photography was there to capture it all in the most ethereal way. We’ll never get over this pastel room divider-made-backdrop from Milieu Decor, accented with both grand and petite arrangements from Ginger Rose Flowers to boot.
The bride’s soft, tender makeup and low ponytail from Jolie Artistry couldn’t be more perfect for the setting – nor could her one-shouldered wedding dress with monochromatic embellishments and a silk tulle sleeve panel designed by Cizzy Bridal from Sakred Bridal.
We’re equally fond of the Grey Asphalt Suit with a neutral floral tie from Stitch & Tie the groom is sporting! The breathable stretch fabric and dapper color make this look suitable for weddings in every season and varying levels of formality.
P.S. More details on how to choose the right accessories for your suit this way!
Of course, a fashion game this strong calls for dessert of equal caliber. And boy, did Cake Envy deliver! This shimmery rice paper confection with its drapes and layers and subtle metallic effects deserves a spot in the Wedding Cake Hall of Fame. If you love this look, see more examples of this modern cake technique in our recent roundup here!
The ballerina pink + peachy cream tones continue throughout the paper goods from Lairsey Paper Co, contrasted elegantly with the vintage rings from Songbird Sara Jewelry. Did you spot that ruby men’s wedding band? A dream!
The team completed the modern minimalist wedding look with a tablescape that could write the book. Sleek rentals from TableMade Co and Nuage Designs brought the vision to life, and the calligraphed place cards with trailing french blue ribbon from Silk and Willow were the cherries on top!
Roses, larkspur, gysophila, silver dollar, pink magnolia and pampas grass are just a few of the ingredients in this silk flower recipe from Afloral. Scroll on for the full recipe!
