Rustic Wood With a Modern Metallic Edge - Wedding Inspiration

We were thrilled when Katie Webb, one half of the fabulous duo behind Intertwined Events, asked us to collaborate on this original shoot. The inspiration behind this styled shoot combined the rustic elements of woods with the modern edge or mirrors and metals, with splashes of purple.

Jessica was absolutely stunning! We created the bouquet with purple hydrangea, purple lisianthis, cream balsa wood flowers, and accented with an angel vine collar.

The stems were banded with pewter satin ribbon, with a twine handle treatment, 
and finished with a little bling... a sunburst rhinestone brooch.

I love how Katie added the purple argyle socks to the groom's attire. 

For the boutonniere, we used a single balsa wood flower, accented with angel vine. 
The stem was finished in pewter satin ribbon.

 The table design combined all of the elements. The table runner was created using faux wood tiles, set on a grey burlap linen. The centerpieces were created in mirrored square vessels filled with vibrant purple hydrangea. The table design also featured grape wood branches accented with balsa wood flowers. Slim cylinders with floating candles were banded with twine and accented with a rhinestone studded sunburst brooch.

 I love the contrast of the stainless steel charger, wooden plate, purple napkin and the metallic sunburst.

Erica O'Brien is an insanely talented cake designer, I simply adore her and her work. She used a pillow as the inspiration for the center cake. It looked so realistic, I could not believe it was all edible and made out of fondant!!
