Our venue is located on the 8th floor of the historical Sunrise Bank building in downtown Albuquerque. The inspiration behind the setting was to combine the airy elegance and beauty of a ballerina with a raw palette of an industrial wedding venue. Modern and vintage décor elements were artfully tied together to help bring this vision to life.
The wedding was set to take place in the early evening as the sun begins to descend and cascades light through the venue’s west wall of windows.
With the softness of a ballerina in mind, the primary colors of this wedding are blush, green and white. Accents of bronze, natural wood, and robin blue were added to round out and modernize the airy palette.
What is a ballerina without a bit of tulle? Or in our case a lot of it! Kelsey, our bride, is wearing a “Big Dream” tulle skirt in blush. It is paired with the long sleeve lace top that keeps a sexy elegance with a low “v” in front and sheerness along the shoulders. A soft tulle horsehair trim veil completes her look.
John, our groom, complements his bride in a simple white shirt with grey pants and brown genuine leather suspenders to match his brown shoes.
Our florals were designed with a late spring/summer wedding in mind. They include Mother of Pearl Roses, Queen Anne’s Lace, White Stock, Tulips, Eucalyptus, Scabiosa, Pink Rice Flower, Peonies and Ranunculus.
The Sweetheart Table was used to give the bride and groom an intimate setting for dinner. With Eucalyptus draping from the centerpiece, this simple white wooden table is accented by a cheesecloth runner and set with gold-rimmed antique china. Gold flatware, bronze candlesticks and pink water goblets complete the casual elegance of this cozy table. Two wooden farmhouse chairs with floral backers complement the table.
Pink Champagne, Macaroons and chocolate complete the easy elegance of this wedding.
