Modern Inspiration Infused With the Prettiest Shades of Blue

Blue and white is a classic combo that proves time and again it looks gorgeous together whether decorating a home or laying the foundation for a modern meets classic wedding design. And the proof is in Sally Pinera’s pretty, pretty imagery. This shoot designed by Smith & James Events blends minimalist neutral design with all white florals by Catalina Neal, lucite invitations by the Idea Emporium and a gorgeous infusion of deep blue. Have a look.

From Smith & James…This shoot was inspired by the bride who loves romance but wants to keep things a little more modern with a bit of edge. We are always really excited about piling on the romance and working with neutrals, so we wanted to give things a bit of a contemporary take by incorporating lucite/clear acrylic into the mix, as well as bringing in a cool deep blue.

We have these amazing white hurricane candle holders that really brought the vibe together. Sally Pinera shot everything as Sally always does: with a hip, fresh, and exciting eye. We always look forward to weddings and shoots with Sally as she is a great collaborator with incredible taste.

Catalina Neal did the floral and she nailed it. We love her ability to make things feel lush, dynamic, and free-flowing. Her arrangements have this great movement and confidence. It’s hard to come by. Paper goods came from the brilliant mind of Carey with The Idea Emporium. She has so many ideas and is really receptive to inspiration. She can do anything, it’s inspiring to watch.

We snagged the incredible dress from LOHO bride. Their selection is just SO GOOD: modern, hip, and beautiful. Danielle Ryan did hair and make-up, she is so good at achieving a soft, natural bridal look without looking overdone.

Tabletop came from The Ark. They have the most beautiful selection. Chairs from Theoni collection. We love the idea of a white bentwood chair. Linens from La Tavola, as always. The cake was a creation of Sheila Mae by Danielle Keene. The cake was so fun to shoot. We wanted something clean but unusual. We really loved bringing this shoot together and being able to spend the day collaborating with such talented friends!
