As soon as I saw the the wedding bouquet wrapped in zippers and the hot pink spray painted succulents (not to mention beautiful photography!) I knew this was a wedding inspiration photo shoot I would love! Phoenix based photographer Melissa Jill and the event planning team from Outstanding Occasions joined with an all-start group of wedding professionals to create this photo shoot filled with modern wedding ideas and looks, and we’re smitten with so much of it. Thanks for sharing your hard work ladies!
From photographer Melissa Jill Photography: The W Scottsdale was the backdrop for this modern inspiration shoot depicting the contrast between masculine and feminine details. White, grey and black were the main colors with a pop of pink. We created a story to go along with our design concept for the photo shoot: Tori, an interior designer and fashionista from LA, met Tyson, a quirky, Arizona guy who grew up riding horses.
The bride wore a full, pocketed WTOO wedding gown with a sweetheart neckline from Mariee Gallery. Camelback Flowershop designed a soft grey bouquet with a zipper detail. This ceremony look was accessorized with a punch of color in the necklace by Laura Eva Designs and the stunning earrings and ring were from Emmaquist. The groom wore a black and white jacket, a gingham shirt and black satin bow tie and black pants along with some black glasses to add some quirkiness. He also wore a soft grey boutonniere that coordinated with the bride’s bouquet. For the reception, the bride’s Matthew Christopher Dahlia dress was fitted and feminine and was accessorized with gorgeous Chanel shoes. The groom changed to a polka dot tie and black silk pocket square with a boutonniere to match.
The invitation suite designed by Idieh Design incorporated hounds tooth, plaid and other patterns as well as leather details. The “escort cards” were actually planted succulents spray-painted pink and small terra-cotta pots painted black. We added the handwritten names and table numbers in white. Camelback Flowershop looped leather, fabric and ribbon with white carnations to create a pattern in the mirror piece and the white lacquer horse that we spray-painted added in the groom’s love of horses in a modern way. The three amazing cakes from Classic Cakes and Confections also incorporated the hounds tooth, pinstripe and plaid masculine details, and donut pops and glazed donuts with chocolate, caramel and sprinkle toppings provided by The Donut Shoppe.
