Whimsical Atrium 82 Wedding Inspiration Shoot With a Pastel Color Palette

September 24, 2023 | justine

Taking inspiration from the stunning stained glass windows, classic brownstone steps, and the fab art deco feel of Atrium82, the creative minds at Poppy + Lyn orchestrated a captivating wedding vision. They brought to life a celebration that blends the irresistible charm of Brooklyn with a playful touch of whimsy. Using a soft pastel color palette, ethereal flowers, and exquisite bridal fashion, every aspect of this romantic Atrium 82 wedding inspiration is destined to make hearts skip a beat.

The large windows in the venue were adorned with delicate floral arrangements, creating a stunning setting for exchanging heartfelt vows. To set the stage for an intimate reception for two, a beautiful tablescape with lacey linens, vintage accents, and soft blooms was added. While the decor certainly played a significant part in bringing this elopement to life, fashion also took center stage. The brides were impeccably styled, one in a tiered dress and the other in a chic retro-glam pantsuit.

If you and your partner are in need of that extra nudge to think outside the box for your wedding, this is it. These photos are just the spark you need to ignite your imagination and explore unique wedding ideas. Ready for more?

The Inspiration Behind This Atrium82 Wedding Inspiration

Intimate elopement meets Brooklyn Charm. For this styled shoot, we wanted to highlight a local wedding space in Brooklyn, Atrium 82. It has all the makings of a gorgeous and charming event venue—stained glass, tons of natural light, those classic Brownstone steps, and just the right amount of space to soak in wedded bliss. The main inspiration came from the venue itself and those perfect stained glass windows. 

Adding a Fresh Twist to Modernize the Art Nouveau Vibe

Art nouveau is such a gorgeous genre. And we wanted to show how you could modernize it to feel fresh and timeless but still playful. We started with the color palette—a warm, inviting, neutral scheme with little pops of whimsy. This bled into the flowers, which the incredible Miriam Bloom Designs created. We opted for an asymmetrical installation for the ceremony that enhanced the windows but didn’t take away from the view of the city streets.

Finding The Perfect Attire for This Atrium82 Wedding Shoot That Truly Reflected Their Style 

Our brides are a real couple getting married next fall in Brooklyn, and we worked with them to find outfits that they felt were their most beautiful selves. Carol Hannah had the most stunning wedding dress for us to use, which complimented the art nouveau suit we found for Katlyn on ASOS

Celebrating Diversity and Unity Through Collaboration

Several of our team members proudly identify as LGBTQ+, with outstanding contributions from vendors like Miriam Bloom, Firework Photo Booth, and Janesse Russel, who crafted beautiful veils for our brides. The creative genius of Rachel Zuch extended to our paper goods, adding a stunning touch that set the perfect tone for the day. We believe that Junebug readers will embrace the sight of a diverse vendor team and models coming together for a joyful and elegant elopement right in the heart of Brooklyn. Behind the lens, Loreto and Jose were the dream team, capturing every moment flawlessly, and the result was pure perfection.

Two Travel Influencers Tie The Knot In An Unconventional Bondi Beach Elopement

September 21, 2023 | justine

Gabi and Shanna chose an unconventional way to tie the knot. They picked a beach in Sydney they had never been to before, convinced that any beach would be perfect for their special day. And their intuition proved to be right. Their Bondi Beach elopement was filled with fun, personality, and boho charm that truly captured their love for adventure.

They knew a traditional ceremony was never for them, and their elopement was precisely what they had always dreamt of. It was just the two of them on the beach, with their best friend officiating, creating an incredibly intimate and special atmosphere. They chose attire that reflected their personalities to make it even more unique. Shanna wore a stunning gold and cream jumpsuit with stars, while Gabi chose a short, white sequin dress. Their inspiration? A beach disco party, and it couldn’t have been more perfect.

As if it couldn’t get any better, serendipitously, their elopement coincided with World Pride, filling the sky with rainbows and Pride flags. It felt like fate. Their special day was all about them and their adventurous spirit. See the love from every angle through these stunning photos captured by Martine Payne.

The Couple:

Gabi and Shanna

The Wedding:

Bondi Beach, Australia

Why They Chose to Have a Bondi Beach Elopement

We knew we wanted to elope while traveling because travel has always been a huge part of our relationship. We are both non-traditional people, so we wanted a non-traditional elopement. We didn’t wear the typical white dresses or have the usual ceremony. We wanted something fun, unique, and boho that felt exactly like us, and that’s what our elopement was. We are most proud of doing our wedding our way! It was exactly what we always dreamed of—just the two of us on the beach. And it felt so intimate and special.

Making Their Love Story More Personal By Having Their Best Friend Officiate

The most memorable part of the day was the speech of our officiant. Our best friend, Ravi, talked about our relationship and what it meant to have a happy and loving same-sex couple in his life. He put so much thought and creativity into the ceremony and even changed the lyrics to “Love Story” by Taylor Swift to be about our relationship. We always knew we wanted him to marry us, and when we realized we would all be in Australia at the same time, we knew it would be the perfect place to elope. 

Destination Elopement Tip: Work with Local Experts

We planned our whole elopement only one month before it happened. But our best advice would be if you are looking to elope, try and find an elopement company in the destination you’re elopement is happening in. We researched many different elopement companies in Sydney, and we’re so happy we ended up with Weekday Wedded Bliss. They made sure our day ran smoothly and were great at recommending local a photographer, videographer, florist, and other vendors for our special day.

Ditching Tradition with Unconventional Wedding Attire

We knew we didn’t want to wear the traditional white dresses, so we went with looks that were way more us. Shanna rocked a gold and cream jumpsuit with stars all over it, and I wore a short, white sequin dress. Our inspiration was a disco party at the beach, and we definitely used Pinterest to gather some inspiration for our wedding day fashion.
