Brought to us by Seattle photographer Nikki Closser and designer and event planner Holly Patton of Perfectly Posh Events, this fabulous, urban chic wedding inspiration photo shoot brings a touch of sparkle to the edgy, industrial setting of WithinSodo. Such a great style combination!
Photographer Nikki Closser shared with us a few thoughts with us about the inspiration for the design and how the team successfully pulled off their industrial style photo shoot…
The Inspiration: We were inspired by the challenge of mixing something delicate and feminine with something raw and rough. WithinSodo, located in the gritty, industrial area of Seattle, served as the ideal location to bring this concept to life. We loved the idea of transforming an industrial area into a chic, romantic, flirty setting while keeping with the urban flare!
The Look: The industrial feel of the metal and brick walls at WithinSodo accompanied by a swoon-worthy raspberry vintage couch helped us achieve the urban chic style that we were aiming for. To balance the bold elements of the space, we kept the bride’s gown and the groom’s suit simple, clean and timeless with a modern touch. Our fashion-forward bride chose a modern-cut gown for the ceremony with a bandeau veil adorned with crystals and stunning jewelry, followed by a flirty pink flower hair wrap for the reception and a ending the night in an adorable raspberry cocktail dress for the after-party!
The Design: In the reception space, the table design was kept sleek and contemporary using grey linens and modern dishes with pops of raspberry and sparkle! Lush and colorful centerpieces in concrete vessels accompanied by raspberry Glassybaby candles infused the space with modern romance. All the details were adorned with a little bit of bling; from the bride and groom chair signs, to the escort cards, to the miniature sparkly bottles of bubbly that the guests enjoyed as favors. The invitation suite even had a little bit of sparkle with a romantic script and modern design!
