The broaches in the bridal bouquet sold me on this whole shoot immediately. Not just because of the floral genius at Florals Etcetera, but just the general abundance of talent at Carrie Dayton Events, The Modern Hive, and Geoff Johnson Photography, just to name a few. It’s not easy to do the mod-vibe without being overly kitschy, but this is so sophisticated, it could fit perfectly into the woods or an urban loft.
From Carrie Dayton Events… This sophisticated, hip ‘Mid-Century Modern Wedding’ was created for a young professional, urban couple who lives a modern day lifestyle. They appreciate nature and have a passion for design. Mid-Century components were implemented throughout the day’s events to emphasize the couple’s bold personality and lifestyle. Repurposed furniture was selected and used as the inspiration for the couple’s ceremony and reception. The rustic, outdoor setting lends maturity and trendiness to the style. Invitations were printed on wood to give guests the impression this was going to be a different wedding. Contemporary touches, such as the color palate, accent pieces, and flowers allure to a realistic setting for the 21st Century bride. The combination of these elements set the stage for this couple to express their personalities, style and most of all, love.
It was magical how such a large team of creative partners came together on this project including some who aren’t in the wedding industry such as Hutch Furnishings and The Modern Hive who are in the furniture and interior design industry. The team worked together as if they had known each other for years. The day was seamless and flowed like a properly timed wedding. I chose the partners based on their amazing talent and “can do attitudes.”
The bride and groom in the shoot are married and worked with me for their 2011 wedding. Courtney, the bride, is the owner of The Modern Hive and assisted with the design of the shoot. As the day progressed it was fun to watch their love and personalities come out on film. It was like reliving their wedding all over.
