Back in September one Sunday morning I met up with my floral designer friend Colie of Flower Scout and photographer Laura Andrea Harris to put together this colorful inspiration shoot. Colie designed all the bouquets and floral arrangements for my wedding back in June and I knew that she would be my go to for collaboration. She then kindly introduced Laura and the photo shoot took form. We staged the photo shoot at the Lucas Confectionery in downtown Troy, NY. The Confectionery has a great indoor/outdoor space with a retractable roof, exposed brick, stringed bistro lights, and other industrial details. With such great bones, I think it makes a stylish space for an intimate wedding or reception.
The decor I designed and sourced was inspired by Scandinavian textiles paired with geometric shapes. (See my inspiration board at the end for more ideas for a folk geometric wedding.)
This bouquet has such a great mixture of colors and textures. It is one of my favorite Flower Scout bouquets to date, second only to my bridal bouquet. The ribbon you see wrapped around the bouquet and on the table runner were found on a trip to the Madison Bouckville Antique Fair. I was trying to find a Scandinavian tablecloth or fabrics for the shoot, but found the prices out of my budget. On the last day of the fair I found this vendor with tons of beautiful trims. I bought up a ton and decided I would make my own table runner.
I think this little corner with the black couch and vintage trunk would make an excellent nook for the wedded couple to grab a moment together.
For the table scape I built geometric inspired structures out of wood dowels to hold Flower Scout's floral designs. I made a smaller version for the cake topper as well. For the name cards I created a cut paper design based off of crystals and did a pop up design for the name to rise up. I finished it with a geo stone set behind each name.
I love this structure with the floral design!
