I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

We’re totally crushing on this edgy + modern wedding shoot. So much, actually, that we’re thinking of redecorating the dining room to look just like it! And, as Heather Roth—fab photographer—explains below, that was exactly the point. The team of top-tier St. Louis wedding vendors joined forces to create an inspiration shoot that captures the contemporary couple. “We imagine this couple would want to create pieces that reflected them as a couple, as well as wedding-day remnants you’d see in their stylish home.”  Yes, please. And the Livia Paul Paper stationery pieces? Well they’re just on a whole other level.

Heather Roth ofHeather Roth Fine Art Photography came toKatie Saeger Events with a vision to create a bold, edgy + modern, yet romantic wedding day editorial. We were inspired by the chic bride who loves high-fashion and is looking for something other than the traditional white wedding dress. For her, a metallic, mesh-pleated dress is what fit the bill! This is when the talented, fashion-forward designer,Emily Koplar of Wai Ming located in St. Louis, stepped in with her exclusive collections. We paired the looks with another St. Louis favorite –Fauxgerty, a faux leather jacket line. That cool jacket had us wanting to grab our man and ride off on a Vespa, with the wind blowing in our hair! Just be Cool. Hair + Makeup from Annie Heyward Style was a perfect complement to our vibe.

A contemporary wedding venue, Palladium, was the perfect space for this shoot. We loved the straight lines of the geometric geodes + triangles, and carried that through the plates, glassware and paper goods, keeping clean textures in our vignettes. We wanted the florals to be textured and light in color balance to stand out against the darker linens and colors of the shoot, adding a soft twist to the modern edge. Heather hand-painted the larger white vases with matte black, grays and gold detailing, consistent with our color scheme. The coordinating gold brush strokes with geometric gold studs on the ribbon of the bouquet was also one of our favorite accents.

The paper goods, designed byLivia Paul Paper, were a huge part of this shoot. We imagine this couple would want to create pieces that reflected them as a couple, as well as wedding-day remnants you’d see in their stylish home. Sophisticated (+ rad) prints + illustrations, using the couple’s python wedding monogram, playfully carry throughout the various elements in our vignettes. A python-embossed invitation suite with high gloss type treatment is sure to impress guests. They may just walk away remembering what Love is.

We’re loving every last, industrial-chic detail of Julia and Bobby’s gorgeous wedding at Beatnik Studios . The vintage-inspired engagement ring, the cascading florals and the raw, wood and metal textures throughout the gallery venue. And, of course, the bride and groom are totally stunning—especially in the super-editorial portraits by Josselyn Peterson. We know you’re going to love this one as much as we do!

What made the wedding special and unique?

A wise soul advised me to go into your wedding day like you were writing a book about it. The entirety of the book would be solely about every detail of the day. They directed me to mentally note every taste, every sound, every feeling, every smell, every moment. It is so easy for the human brain to take special moments for granted. It takes great effort to consciously stay in the present moment and to enjoy it to its fullest. This piece of advice – to write a book about my wedding day – was the greatest gift someone could have given me. It helped me to live fully through each minute and to soak it up to its entirety.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

My husband and I did things a little differently – We were officially married April 19, 2014 with an audience of about 15. We decided to have our full Ceremony and “party” one year later on our anniversary. I would recommend this to everyone! It relieved so much stress of the day and did not take away the specialness of the event. I can honestly say it was the best day of my life, marrying my best friend again!

From Poppy Design Co.: In this series, I used a ton of color. Jewel tones are really happy, and they really work well together. There isn’t much rule when working with such an abundance choice in tones, just go for what you love. For this series, we found a lot of inspiration from simply walking the market and choosing healthy, seasonal blooms in rich, deep tones.

From the photographer: Nicaragua is becoming the ultimate destination for honeymooners. Not only is the country attracting chic hotels such as the Tribal Hotel in Granada (the location of the shoot), but their tourism industry is committed to keeping the country’s authenticity and eco consciousness. Not to mention it’s a very affordable destination. Floral designer, Ali Fortunato, went to the markets for local florals & botanicals to create a stunning arrangement that fit the hotel’s aesthetic. Immersing yourself in the local culture is an activity that all honeymooners should do!
