So often fall weddings lean towards darker, heaveier, more rustic design, and while we do love a good rustic wedding, it's not for everyone. This talented team created a fall wedding design that is modern, sophisticated and [dare we say] airy?
Keep scrolling to see more photos by Sarah Porter. Moss & Maeve Event Planning & Styling planned every detail of this wedding inspiration and La Rue Floral created all of these incredible florals you'll see throughout. This dream team's inspiration came to life at Clay Venues. All the images are in the full gallery, so be sure to click through and read on to hear more from photographer, Sarah Porter.
Inspired by Dutch still-life paintings, this texture and color-rich editorial features a unique floral installation (made complete with luscious fruit!) atop each plate around the reception table. A palette of deep red, pale blush, and warm yellow is contrasted against cool blue backdrops, introducing a fully modern take on classic 17th-century still-life tones.
While designing their vision, planner, Moss & Maeve Event Planning & Styling, and photographer, Sarah Porter selected Clay Venues in Colorado Springs as their canvas–the perfect bright and airy space.
Flat-lay stylist and stationer Beautifully Noted created a gold foil-pressed invitation on blush handmade paper. A coordinating guest information booklet, custom wax seals, sage vow books, and bits of grey-pink ribbon elevate the timeless suite.
She also arranged floral-forward flat-lay vignettes with the bride’s personal details: Guerlain lip color and perfume, show-stopping Loeffler Randall sandals with matching handbag, and an emerald cut solitaire diamond ring by Sarah O Jewelry.
La Rue Floral’s organic bouquet design and cheerful boutonnières provide gorgeous pops of color throughout. Her carefully curated florals bring life (literally!) to the typically inanimate portions of the tablescape. Grapes, Bosc pears, pomegranates, and blooms artfully spill over the matte white dinnerware in still-life fashion. Muted-tone taper and pillar candles by Chandlerie run down the center. To achieve the contemporary aesthetic, gold flatware, delicate stemware, and dusty blue velvet linens from Soirée Linen are added.
A handmade paper menu with a custom gold stand, designed by Beautifully Noted, is surrounded by a statement piece by La Rue Floral, made up of large blooms and fall foliage. Also on display is a lavish, cascading champagne tower and a one-of-a-kind cake wall featuring a two-tier classic cake by The Dessert Stand on a gold shelving piece from Hazel Grove Rentals, embellished with charming floral bud vases.
The bride wears the alluringly simple Chloe gown by Savannah Miller from The Bridal Collection–perfectly suited for colder season weddings. Soft curls gently frame her romantic, warm bridal makeup look by Beauty Mark By Kacie. The groom sports a classic black two-button look from Ted's Clothiers with a relaxed, unbuttoned white shirt.
