If you’ve followed our lovely little corner of the internet for any space of time now, you’ll have come to find that we like to advocate the value of storytelling. Weddings are nothing if not a part of a grander story, and every element — from dress, to table, to venue and getaway — is a unique opportunity to inject that little more “you” into your big day! So naturally, when we think of wedding design, we like to think beyond the simple aesthetics of color or form. Design can so beautifully tailor your day, serving as the thoughtful representation of your relationship, the visual echo of a lifetime of affection. Each floral element or strike of color can change the mood or balance of a space, and what you are given is a gentle dance of beauty whose every step you choose simply because it pleases your soul. It’s precisely as much and as little as you want, and dresses your day to match you and your love!
Our next little spot of lovely is an exploration of just this: the simple yet wholly remarkable way that a little vision can change the breath of design. Our very own White Wren Collaborative member Ciarra Claire put carefully refined pen to page in some truly elegant paper pieces. Her characteristically romantic hand and delicate eye for organic detail brought a suite of detail to life which sings to our very souls! Katie Wachowiak responded in kind with delicate floral masterpieces featuring some truly breathtaking butterfly ranunculus, while the likes of La Tavola and Emerson James dressed the table to raw and ethereal tastes. Sincerely Ginger wove the raw yet modern vision while Cory Weber captured every carefully curated detail, all to deliver the sweetest of inspirations fit for a great love! Two palettes, two designs, two gorgeous ways of representing a love story — which catches your eye?
