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

The team behind this Dark Romance inspiration shoot took their design cues from the moody floral wallpaper adorning the halls of the Hotel Monaco. Rich, velvety textures and candlelit details exude the very essence of modern romance. Calligraphy stationery is by Judith Browne, jewel-toned florals are by Posy and dramatic cakes are by The Butterwood Bake Consortium. Floral accessories like the bride’s Ted Baker shoes and groom’s dinner jacket add modern flair and Grey Collective member Palermo Photo was on hand to capture all the drama and the details in these film photographs.

Photographer Erika Aileen and florist Dogwood & Twine had one starting point behind the vision for this bohemian inspiration shoot—yellow.  Capitalizing on the many gorgeous blooms in the yellow hue family the team created a light and modern look that’s tastefully full of color. Juxtaposing the soft, luscious blooms with the sleek modern elements like Artifact Uprising invitations and flatware from Hearth & Hand with the patina of the abandoned building space helped communicate the effortless nature of the organic, whimsical bride.

Inspiration is truly everywhere. The team behind this shoot was inspired by the beauty of something simple: mussels. The dark and stormy color and texture of mussels with its many facets of blue and grey, the simple shape of mussels, and their beautiful iridescence led them to the Contemporary Art Museum. The simple shape of the mussels and the minimalism of the art museum inspired Absolutely IN! Events to incorporate mid-century modern pieces, and the watercolor stationery form Pretty Together with its layered colors and soft movement carried the feeling even further. Gathered, unruly florals by Belli Fiori complemented the look while our friends over at Carretto Studio captured it all.

The story of this inspiration shoot is of a beautiful red-haired Irish girl who lives in a very classical romantic country house in the countryside. She falls in love with a city-boy from Dublin. She shows him the beauty of the Irish countryside and the classical beauty of the house where she grew up. She envisions two looks for her wedding.

In the first look with a gold silk dress from House of Delphine (a French designer living in County Kerry), she is the Irish Queen Maebh. The meaning of the Irish of her name is “she who intoxicates” or “mead woman” (mead is the Celtic honey-wine which is the origin of the word “honeymoon”). Her crystal crown is from Gems & Bones. Her bouquet has tones of copper and autumn, foraged around the florist’s property in County Cavan.

The second look that the bride envisions is classic and timeless, a white lace dress and veil by House of Delphine. The lace reminds her of her ancestors and the legacy of her family and Irish lace-making. Her bouquet is lush with tones of red. The red reminds her that winter is coming and that the red berries of the rowan tree and holly will be decorating the Irish landscape.

The dinner will be set for the wedding inside her home at Gloster House. She loves the dark richness of the centuries-old family table for the wedding meal. She has a dark cake with handmade sugar flowers by Cup Cakes and Counting. Her stationery is in navy, cream, crimson, and gold by Lenka Calligraphy. Her family heirlooms play a part in the dinner setting…she is home for now.
