What happens when two seemingly opposite styles collide? We can say for sure – it’s something brilliant! The free-flowing and airy style of bohemian vibes would naturally stand in stark contrast to the minimalistic, clean-lines of a modern affair. Boho chic often conjures up desires of running along a tropical beach adorned with a vibrant floral crown and golden sand between your toes. On the other end of the spectrum, a modernist event brings about thoughts of sipping champagne at some architecturally sophisticated art gallery while wearing your most structured formal gown. Two very different settings, yes? However, these event designers brought both of those elements together to create a magical and exciting modern wedding inspiration.
Steph Wahlig photographed this incredible marriage of themes that truly takes our breath away. For this modern wedding inspiration, designers look to Pantone’s 2017 Fashion Color Report to bring in the vivid colors seen in the backdrops. A palette of royal Lapis Blue, invigorating Flame, soft Niagara, playful Pink Yarrow, and glittering gold all create this striking ceremony. Mixed shapes can be seen in the backdrops and throughout the styled shoot in centerpieces and place settings (check out the hexagon-shaped menu card!) that reminisce of the stately art deco popular in the mid-20th century. Bridal Boutique of Arizona provided the modest, sleek wedding gown that is as glamorous through its modern design. The groom donned a perfectly-matched suit with shapely frame and skinny tie from Celebrity Tux and Tails. We adore the magic created when modern expectations meet boho chic dreams for an unforgettable wedding.
