Pretty Monochromatic Wedding Inspiration

August 26, 2023 BY: Bailey

“While creating a mood board for a personal project, I was inspired to create and design a shoot that was both bold and contemporary while still being romantic and timeless. For this shoot, rather than playing with colors we wanted to play with multiple shades of the same color to create a monochromatic palette. That being said, we wanted to have some accent colors like black and pale pink to give it a bold touch. Texture was a big aspect of this shoot, from the cake to the dresses and veil to the table runners, glasses, and napkins. The two tiered cake was a gorgeous ivory colored cake with textured frosting and flowers. For the table design, we wanted to use the ribbed glasses to add some height, the candles some warmth, and the linens to add dimension all while giving us different textures. With a monochromatic color palette, it was important to make sure that things didn’t look flat. Our models for the shoot were a previous bride and groom of mine. So being newly weds, absolutely stunning, and so fun they really made the shoot come to life. Giving the bride neutral, glowing makeup and a slicked back bun made the look simple yet bold. When choosing the dresses, we wanted to make sure that we had something bold and edgy which led us to the high neck satin gown. Having that modest neckline made the look feel chic and modern while still being timeless. With a floral jacquard fabric and off the shoulder sleeves, the second dress felt more romantic and dreamy. The contrast of the fabric of each dress added to that texture element of the shoot, which was assisted by the veil. The pearl veil complimented each dress in different ways. If anything truly completed the shoot, it was the florals. The freestanding arch was straight out of a fairy tale. The florals on the table allowed us to fill the space, while not adding so much that it took attention away from the place settings. We wanted to be sure that the place settings were the star of the show so we chose layered dinnerware, bold flatware, and a napkin placed just so causing the menu to stand out. The details really do matter, and the stationery had so many intentional details, including the pressed lettering, dainty florals and personalized touches, that made it stand out. We even used the names of the models on the invitations. Moss was a perfect backdrop for the shoot giving us so many spaces to work with. The white brick being a favorite with the large windows allowing us to have some natural light complemented by vintage style bulbs and chandelier lights. Even the flooring provided the perfect backdrop for our flat lay photos. We can’t talk about this shoot without bringing attention to the stunning shots captured by our photographer Kaitlyn. The film shots were classic. Some shots were playful and intimate while others were edgy and dramatic.”
