Miami Meets Mid-Century Modern

Situated on one of the most iconic beaches in the world The James Royal Palm in Miami Beach hosted this mid-century inspired shoot. While I specialize mostly in wedding stationery and paper goods, I also love to style and art direct. The goal was to showcase my design aesthetic, and love for mid-century and contemporary designs. I felt it was important to stay true to the dynamic and culture that is unique to Miami. Another major source of inspiration for the shoot was Ray and Charles Eames, husband and wife-duo, furniture designers.

Charles Eames was once said “At all times, love and discipline have led to a beautiful environment and good life.” I believe in this quote whole-heartedly, as this is something I put into practice everyday in the studio.

The majority of the shoot took place in the South Shore Lounge and Florida Cookery Patio.
We were also fortunate enough to have a special dish prepared by the talented team at FCP.

Bridal market: Sarah Loertscher for Angel Sanchez

So while watching the Angel Sanchez show in complete awe, I was equally obsessed with the geometric hairpieces inspired by his collection by Sarah Loertscher.  They’re powdercoated brass, and to put it mildly, I want to wear all of them all the time!  They really are a perfectly architectural way to accessorize a wedding dress.

Guest post: Neon geometric inspiration from The Knotty Bride

If you like a little hilarity with your wedding inspiration, Alison over at The Knotty Bride is the place for you!

Hi friendlies!  Alison here.  The plan is to inspire the crap out of your faces today with some colorful , so put your inspiration helmets on and buckle up.

I dig Vané of Brooklyn Bride because she offer something very unique; wedding and event inspiration and design that boasts a cool, modern edge.  So I tried my hand at gathering together some modern-ish style and know what I found gets *my* heart pumping; here’s hoping it has a similar effect on yours.

The decor inspo I gathered has everything to do with two trends I’m positively consumed by right now.  I love the geometric trend, and I’m getting a real kick out of the neon trend.  I know I’m just one of a buttload of kids out there obsessed with those two things, but that’s never stopped me from adoring something before. :)  Seems to make sense that if something becomes a trend it’s because enough people enjoyed the f**k out of it in its beginnings to cause it to spread like wildfire.  AMIRITE?  Ok putting the trend-following apologist in me aside, I’m really glad to have been able to share some of my fave finds within those two styles and hopefully I’ve inspired the trendster inside of you. 😉

xoxo!  – Alison (The Knotty Bride)
