Fruity Floral Estate Wedding

by:

Several vendors came together to show off their talent in an eye-catching way. The stylist and florist created a stunning tablescape with pops of color, exotic fruity accent pieces, and vintage flatware by a vendor who sources her rentals from local thrift stores. The venue itself is a one-of-a-kind remodeled mansion in the heart of Grand Rapids, Michigan with eccentric details and original character.
Lastly, our stunning biracial model couple is coming up on the 1-year anniversary of their COVID wedding. Not only were their wedding plans compromised due to COVID in May 2020, but their wedding night was jeopardized due to an outbreak of riots in downtown Grand Rapids. The model bride is wearing her own wedding dress which had not yet been cleaned, and it still had traces of tear gas on it from the riots on their wedding evening. The couple was humbled and excited to be able to relive their wedding day and capture more bright, hopeful images than the ones they were able to receive on their original wedding date.
As vendors, we are always trying to inspire our couples to be bold and unique in each detail of their wedding day, so the inspiration behind this shoot was to showcase each others work in a fun and different way. We also intentionally used bright colors to allude to the brightness that is coming back into our world with the blooming of spring and the slow but steady light that is growing at the end of the pandemic tunnel.

As vendors, we are always trying to inspire our couples to be bold and unique in each detail of their wedding day, so the inspiration behind this shoot was to showcase each others work in a fun and colorful way. We also intentionally used a bright color palette to allude to the brightness that is coming back into our world with the blooming of spring and the slow but steady light that is growing at the end of the pandemic tunnel. The designer and florist created a whimsical tablescape with pops of color in seasonal spring blooms, including Icelandic Poppies, Tulips, and gardenia roses grown in California. Exotic fruity accent pieces added dimension to the floral arrangements, along with vintage flatware by a vendor who sources her rentals from local thrift stores. All of these things came together to create a cheerful, kaleidoscopic reception table set up.


The venue itself is a one-of-a-kind remodeled 1925 mansion in the heart of Grand Rapids, Michigan with eccentric details and original character. Between the bridal parlors, formal dining room, patio, courtyard, and expansive conservatory, there is so much beautifully designed space to host a wedding. Not to mention, their gourmet kitchen with marble countertops was the perfect setting for the vegan vanilla cake filled and covered in colorful vegan Swiss meringue buttercream, and decorated with vibrant, unique details to fit the theme of the shoot.


Our stunning biracial model bride & groom is coming up on their 1-year wedding anniversary. They had a COVID wedding in May 2020, and not only were their wedding plans compromised due to the pandemic, but their wedding night was also jeopardized due to an outbreak of BLM riots at their hotel in downtown Grand Rapids. For the styled shoot, the model bride is wearing her own Élysée Bridal wedding gown (in style ATHÉNAÏS). It had not yet been cleaned since her wedding day, and it still had traces of tear gas on it from the riots that stormed their hotel on their wedding evening. The couple was humbled and excited to be a part of this shoot. They were grateful to relive their wedding day in a more positive way, and to capture more bright, hopeful images than the photos they received on their original wedding date.
