The bold color palette of this contemporary styled shoot stood out beautifully against the elegantly neutral setting at Room 1520. All photos by Ashley Dahl Photography.
The design team took their cues for this colorful styled shoot from the bright and sunny personalities of their models. They found the ideal white and urban space in the restored historical loft space at Room 1520. Located in the heart of the artistic West Loop neighborhood of Chicago, Room 1520 offers white exposed brick, soaring ceilings, and tons of natural light, making it the perfect backdrop for this bold color palette. The design team began with Room 1520’s blue velvet couch and added in complimentary yellows and pinks for a vivid color scheme. They tied the colorful hues together with hints of gold throughout the design.
The wedding stationery suite featured intricate laser-cut details and bright florals to beautifully communicate the vibe of the event. Gorgeous garden roses in bright pink (the shade perfectly matched her lipstick!) and yellow highlighted the bride’s bouquet, with blue accents and eucalyptus greenery. The floral designers added a perfect hint of yellow to the groom’s boutonniere to tie the color story together. The blue and gold wedding cake was showcased on a gold geometric cake stand that coordinated nicely with the gold-rimmed plates on the reception table. The table was set with a blue tablecloth that created a lovely background for the gold cutlery and bright floral centerpieces. This styled shoot came together beautifully to achieve a youthful, striking colorful effect.
