Last year several [very talented] wedding artists and professionals and I got together to create. We started with a simple idea, a music festival inspired wedding, and it blossomed beautifully from there. Each artist contributed their own perception of the vision and together we created a dreamy love story with personal symbolism, vintage texture, soft and muted spring colors and layers of all kinds of energy. I think it’s important to collaborate with other artists to engage and develop one’s own creativity. I know I could have never come up with this amazingness on my own. It was a team effort in every sense of the term.
So many couples have an emotional connection to music and the bands and songs they share in common with their own love story. This styled shoot is inspired by the Dave Matthews Band (one of my fave bands ever) album ‘Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King.’ On the album is the song ‘You & Me,’ a romantic song that many couples choose as the first dance at their wedding. Each decor element was carefully selected, drawing from the illustrative design of the album cover and each vignette communicates meaningful messages. Many of the wedding details are keepsakes that the couple can take home and use in their home decor. I’m a collector, so that’s totally my kinda event design!
It was a joy and honor to work with this amazing group of artists on this project. Feast your eyes on my favorite wedding images from our fanciful creation:
I need this sofa from Found. And the pillows.
That vintage fur shrug?! Need that too.
These florals?! C’mon Pink Daffodil! You are way too amazing for your own good.
Oh, McGregor Girl. I heart you.
The ‘couple’s’ last name is King, so these cool iron crowns were infused into each scene…
Breathtaking florals, with this spring wild flower bouquet of soft colors…
More crowns in the paintings by Commemory…
