Fall Wedding Inspiration for the Bold and Daring Bride

 

DESIGNED FOR A JEREMY CHOU WORKSHOP
As Seen on Style Me Pretty

During our first discussion about the concept behind Jeremy Chou’s one-day workshop in San Francisco, we both decided we wanted to depart from our norm to stretch ourselves creatively. For him, that was shooting a modern concept as opposed to the lush, romantic concepts of his past workshops. I decided to challenge myself by stepping away from the neutral color palettes typical of weddings and selected tones of burnt sienna, dusty blue, and pale gray. I envisioned the qualities of the bride who would get married in the design I was creating – bold, modern, and passionate.

Our styled shoot took place at a bright and airy loft studio in San Francisco, and was brought together by the most amazing team of vendors that Jeremy and I had the pleasure of working with. Ashley of Wild Club Designs created not one, but two (!!) hanging installations for our shoot which were designed in her signature organic, asymmetrical style. The rose gold and dusty blue silks sent by Tono and Co. added the perfect touches of our color palette to our tablescape, which also featured Frances Lane’s modern tableware pieces and The Chiavari Guys’s acrylic chairs. Refine Studio’s modern paper goods designed with clean lines and negative space fit our shoot perfectly, especially when styled with Susie Saltzman’s sparkling beauties placed in Secret Keeper Box’s unique octagonal velvet ring boxes, and photographed on Simply Rooted’s textured styling surfaces. Christina from Makeup by Quis created a makeup look that balanced bold and neutral, and paired it with a sleek updo for our model who wore an Alexandra Grecco gown.
