Nothing brings the “wow” factor to a wedding like stunning florals and intermixing textures. Interesting and groundbreaking pressed flower details are all the rage at the moment, along with a resurgence of velvet. The deep colors and intriguing opacity add both depth and dimension to any occasion. For this Fashion Forward photo shoot, our talented vendor team combined wedding classics like lace and greenery with popular textures like velvet and pressed flowers.
1 & 2: Our bride is on-trend with her Tara Lauren gown featuring an illusion neckline, chic chignon by Teddi Prior for Page Beauty and floral detail in her hair and bouquet by Coco Rose Design. Her groom seals the deal with a kiss in a suit from Generation Tux. Klentner Ranch in Carpinteria, California is a wedding-worthy backdrop for a stunning floral and greenery arch by Coco Rose Design.
3 & 4: Loria Stern proves that desserts are the perfect place to make a style statement with these gorgeous pressed flower macaroons. They’re a colorful complement to a reception set-up designed by Detailed Touch Events and featuring rentals by Theoni Collection, floral centerpieces by Coco Rose Design, linens by La Tavola Linen and stationery by Jen Simpson Design.
5: These beautiful bridesmaids came camera-ready in various dresses from the Jenny Yoo Collection. The mix of floral pattern, mauve and plush velvet dresses are a lively combination. Hairstyling by Teddi Prior and makeup by Tanya Bures, both from Page Beauty. Coco Rose Design created both the ceremony arch and bridesmaids’ bouquets.
6-7 & 10: A traditional color palette and classic setting are given a punch of pizazz with purple-hued velvet chairs, brought to life by floral centerpieces courtesy of Coco Rose Design. The rentals from Theoni Collection, such as scalloped plates and crystal goblets, are complemented by linens from La Tavola Linen. The stationery is by Jen Simpson Design and catering courtesy of Contemporary Catering.
8 & 9: Our bridal party is ready to toast to love with drinks provided by Contemporary Catering and rentals from Theoni Collection. The floral centerpiece and bridal bouquet are both by Coco Rose Design. The ladies’ hairstyling is by Teddi Prior and makeup by Tanya Bures, both from Page Beauty. The bridesmaids’ dresses are by Jenny Yoo Collection. Our bride and groom are equally breathtaking in a gown by Tara Lauren and suit from Generation Tux.
