Chic, feminine style, industrial elements, and wanderlust all played a beautiful part in making these marble inspired wedding ideas come to life. I myself was incredibly inspired by concrete and marble mixed with feminine elements, and when I told Adair of Dairing Events, she too was instantly inspired, and we got started in bringing our inspiration to life. Shades of white and gray combined with the palest tone of blush created a chic style, and gorgeous florals by Shea Hopely added a softness that can only be achieved through flowers. Vintage pieces from Southern Charm Events created the most beautiful vignette, and a classically elegant stationery suite by Olivia Grace Paperie was absolute perfection. Everything was captured by Sarahdipity Photos, and we cannot wait for you to take in all of the gorgeous inspiration!
From Adair of Dairing Events:
Caroline and Brad are a real life Dairing Couple. They were so sweet to help me tell the story behind this styled shoot featured today.
While we are forecasting trends for 2017 Weddings, we have started to see a reigniting of elopements! So many couples are now opting out of the large affairs and planning smaller, more intimate, celebrations of their love. In this styled shoot, we joined a couple’s love for travel with their love for each other. Imagine this — heading to the airport and hopping on the next flight leaving, hand in hand with the person you want to spend your forever with and your best friend by your side to act as witness to the vows. It’s a beautiful thing. I was totally inspired by the quote that you will see throughout the shoot, “Home is not where you are from, it is where you belong. Some of us travel the whole world to find it, others find it in a person.” It speaks to all of us who have found love.
The Prime Osborn Convention Center in Downtown Jacksonville was the perfect backdrop to our story, with the gorgeous marble columns and walls, and an incredible history! It was originally Jacksonville’s first Train Terminal, built in 1919.
Our other inspiration behind the shoot was showing how you can take concrete and marble and make those more industrial elements work in a feminine way. Our fashionista bride loves the soft mixed with the edgy, so pairing her gorgeous lace gown from M Couture Bridal with a black leather jacket was the perfect touch.
Marble is popular trending element, and we love how the swirling grays, whites, and silvers can really enhance your color palette no matter what other tones you choose. Of course, we love rose gold and copper, and coming into the Fall we are going to see a lot more of those metallic shades.
All of the jewelry was custom designed by Corrie McCoy Jewelry specifically for our shoot! Each piece was designed to act as a statement piece for a bouquet and then at the reception, to be worn as a necklace! It’s the perfect Bridesmaid gift!
