Ivory + Gold Photography and the vendors that helped create this shoot, wanted to take the traditional concept of a grand, luxurious wedding, and push the envelope a little bit by incorporating industrial elements to create a unique wedding experience. They wanted to show that they could combine two unlikely elements into something that compliments each other well and call this the Industrial Glam Wedding.
From the photographer:
The story is inspired by two childhood best friends who are complete opposites. One loves singing and dancing, and basking in the sun, while the other is a realist who loves rain and thunder clouds. It just so happens that they were both proposed to at similar times and what better way to move on to their next stage in life by celebrating it alongside one another. They decided to get married together, on the same day and same ceremony. The fun part for the two is creating a wedding that combines what they both love while staying true to each of their own individual style, which meant they had a lot of planning to do! In addition to their wedding photos, they wanted photos with each other to celebrate this important day.
A wedding that looks so luxurious and modern at the same time. Each piece compliments one another so well from the table and chairs to the settings, to the models. When we look at the final result of our shoot, the overall feeling that takes over, is luxury and glam, highlighted by an industrial like environment. We wanted to really show that it takes a lot of planning to put together a wedding. Every little detail is well thought out.
We would consider the floral pieces to be the most luxurious element of this submission. To maintain that luxurious feel, we needed to incorporate a lot of flowers. Our elegant, airy garden bouquets are comprised of David Austin luxury cut roses. Both bridal bouquets are comprised of gorgeous Juliet garden roses, stunning Patience garden roses, our favorite O’Hara garden roses, two shade lavender tulips, cream ranunculus, white lisianthus and eucalyptus. The cascading bouquet always popular for a formal wedding so we were sure to create this beautiful piece. We used rustic and elegant foliage like wax flowers, eucalyptus and astilbes to give a more relaxed look to fit in with out Industrial Glam wedding. For the second bouquet, we used the same flowers from the cascading bouquet but organically arranged it to create a different look for the other bride. A unique element is that the cascading bouquet can be combined with the other vintage garden inspired bouquet to create a bigger and bolder look that is symbolic of their friendship when combined. Two style bouquets, two personalities – best friends.
One of the best parts about the planning and production of this shoot was the many talented minds that we involved. We had 16 unique, and extremely poised at what they do, offer some expertise that helped to expand the ideas of this shoot. It’s not easy to be able to work so harmoniously with so many people, but we managed to do it and it resulted in a perfect day. It is so important to be able to work with a team who shares the same vision and end goal.
Our master calligrapher Maurelle did a wonderful job creating invitations and menus that not only looked luxurious but had a very modern feel to it. She used black paper stock with the finest fold ink. To industrialize it, she added gold leaf textures to the name cards. The invitations combined both couples getting married, and they sent it out to their family and friends. She hand wrote the famous “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.. “ poem onto a large eight ft fabric which hung so elegantly on the wall.
As mentioned above, the floral elements could be seen everywhere you turned at our venue. The floral piece was fundamental in bringing glam to a more rustic environment. We had florals hung everywhere we could, and elegant table pieces that made you feel like you were dining in a bed of florals. The most stunning showstoppers is being able to marry the bouquets together to symbolize the unity of their friendships.
We used used chiffon fabric, and lace pieces combined with black and gold tableware to make the pieces really pop out. The table we chose was a very large table that was quite high which gave it a very royal feel.
We had so many beautiful elements contributed from out vendors. Each piece chosen was carefully and purposefully put into place to execute our vision. One of our most stunning pieces was from Adorn Event rentals. They created a custom wooden chandelier which you can lay with florals all around it. The florals, of course, were provided by The Flower monologues. Our beautiful jewelry was provided by The Borrowed Co, and our makeup looks were created by our very talented makeup artist Brianne from Eva Terez Beauty. Hair was created by very talented stylist Carianne from Lift Hair Lounge. The level of detail in the fondant flowers created by Lynn Cakes is truly extraordinary. Each floral piece was individually handcrafted into very thin layers. the beautiful dresses were designed by a boutique designer Little Pink Dress. Our table decor and styling was provided by Divine Decor. The idea was produced by photographer Juliette from Ivory + Gold Weddings, but could not have been executed without the help of the lovely duo from the Bight Lights event planning. However, without out location at Revamp Furniture Garage, we would not have been able to incorporate all the industrial background elements to truly execute the Industrial Glam vision. Our videographer Natasha was able to help us record the coming of our shoot.
