Now that our Modern Monet styled wedding shoot has been published on a couple wedding blogs, we can share it here! The moment I met Casey, owner of Belle Noelle Events + Design, I felt that we were wedding kindred spirits. We immediately started hatching a plot to get to work together and the kismet of the wedding vendors pulled together and the complete awesomeness of the design was nothing short of magical.
Casey chose Modern Monet as the theme, we wanted to incorporate art, bright colors, texture, and geometry. The Walker Art Center was the perfect venue for the shoot, embracing not only the art gallery side but also the clean lines and modern aesthetic we were looking for. Our two brides combined artsy (purple hair and tattoos) with classic and Sarah Elizabeth Artistry along with Hair District Uptown combined these looks perfectly. Paper Thick Ink designed a gorgeous invitation suite utilizing gray vellum envelopes and tying in the geometric shapes in a crisp clean visual. Local artist Steph Guidera hand painted a custom ketubah with gorgeous personal touches embracing community, something we in Minnesota feel passionate about, especially with LBGT weddings! Studio C Floral went above and beyond with the floral design, bringing in bright oranges and pinks along with soft greens and flowing artful arrangements. Belle Noelle collected geometric metallic pieces, candle sticks, and vases, and managed to combine crystal, brass, a hand painted antique table from Furniture Reloved, ghost chairs from Linen Effects, bright colors, geometric shapes, white picture frames, all together in harmony. I seriously don’t have this talent at ALL and was in awe, watching Christi and Casey play and make things perfect. Our brides wore a subtle ombre gown and mod cut suit from Flutter Boutique, as well as gorgeous pieces by Karen Morris Millinery, and SBG Designs. And as a fabulous modern wedding cake alternative, we had donuts! Delicious gorgeously decorated donuts from Angel Food Bakery! Here are my favorite images from the shoot, enjoy!
Such a gorgeous combination of textures and colors!
Even when photographing portraits, I paid attention to creating geometric lines to tie in to the table design.
Just too much pretty…stop it…too much!
Some artful curlicues.
Yep, they taste as amazing as they look. I may or may not have absconded with a few of these bad boys as well as the rose champagne…
Lets talk hats, ladies, they are the perfect wedding accessory!
This shoot was such a testament of what can happen when a group of creatives who all respect each other and let each other do their own thing can create absolute magic. And purple hair is the coolest thing ever. I hope you love this shoot as much as I do!!!
Knock down gorgeous! I REALLY hope you all submit these photos to Lavender and elsewhere for publication. The world needs to see two beautiful femmes marry… as well as really fine photography.
