There was a time very recently where I realized how undeniably appreciative I am for the friendships I’ve made the Ottawa wedding industry. As Dana of Lux Event Rental assembled a team of creatives to help bring her ‘Modern Elements’ shoot to life, I was struck by this feeling of appreciation. To work amongst such creative individuals is one thing, but when you can genuinely call them your friends and enjoy every minute of working together, it’s a different feeling of appreciation all together.
This modern wedding inspiration was inspired primarily by the 2016 Pantone Color of the Year: Rose quartz + Serenity. Enjoy as you peer into the imagination and talent of some of Ottawa’s most gifted wedding vendors.
It’s the wedding invitation that introduces guests to the themes of a wedding day, months before the event. Our talented stationary artist – Wishtree Invitations – created these Pantone-inspired wedding invitations with geometric accents, which perfectly described the vision for the day.
It was Efhamar & Sienna‘s frill balloons that brought back ‘fun’ to this modern wedding inspiration. These accent balloons were custom designed with a unique tassel to pair with the styling of the day, and boy did we love them!
Through all the styling and decor, it was the bride and groom’s style which brought this entire shoot together. The bride looked timeless in her lace gown from Dominique Levesque Bridal, and her hair by Yara Ismail and makeup by Dazzling Faces helped maintain her flawless look throughout the entire event.
The cut of this modern suit by L’Hexagon, paired with the rose and serenity-coloured accents of his suit and pocket square brought together this tailored look.
For the tablescape, Lux Event Rental focused on modern lines, gold-hinted accents, and geometric decor. Florals by Pollen Nation were undeniably elegant with accents of blue eucalyptus, orchids, tulips, lisianthks, delphinium and light pink roses. The floral arrangement added a soft contrast to the harsh shapes of the metallic accents.
Many thanks to the creative team who brought this styled shoot to life:
