From the photographer, Rachael Osborn Photography:
We wanted to do a bolder twist on the Pantone colors of the year, so in addition to the rose gold (which we incorporated even in the bridal gown by going with a non-traditional color instead of white!) we used a deep peacock blue paired with subtle hints of the softer blue.
I think the deeper peacock gives it a sophistication and edge! The style inspiration came from the couple — we wanted something that paired a classy, uptown feminine sophistication and glamour with a casual, no-frills kind of masculinity. We pictured our bride as a modern Kate Spade-loving princess, and our groom as a motorcycle-loving, casual guy — and what better place for them to marry both each other and their styles than the amazing new venue, Warehouse 109!
It really is a marriage of modern style and edgy grunge. Class it up with some amazing details provided by Ever After Planning, and you have a marriage made in style heaven. What unique elements or DIY details did you include? The invitations were hand-watercolored by Emily Rose Ink to incorporate the color palate. We also included DIY his and her cocktails (recipe cards included) that matched the color scheme and incorporated a sweet, whimsical twist in using candy garnishes.
The flowers, cake, and favors were made by Pollen and Pastry. The cake was a bold twist on the watercolor trend with just a touch of gold leafing for added glam. Favors were deep peacock and gold macaroons and white-chocolate dipped oreos (because NO ONE can resist those) in a pretty favor box, with a watercolor and calligraphy thank you note on each one. The dress is by Justin Alexander c/o Savy’s Chic Bridal in Dixon and was the ultimate princess gown for a bride who doesn’t want to wear the traditional white dress.
