Well we’ve made it. Somehow. Barely. If you don’t follow me on twitter or instagram, Andy & I have been going through a bit of a home renovation and it’s been QUITE the week. We have no working kitchen appliances, have been mostly living out of our upstairs (until yesterday, then it became the basement) and on Wednesday our AC stopped working (but thankfully it is now fixed). So needless to say, this Friday is one that I really didn’t think I would see, but couldn’t be happier now that it’s finally here.

So though I am pretty sleepy, with a scratchy throat and an eye twitch that has been going since Monday, the floors are ALMOST done and to help us all get to the weekend, I have a super bright & modern wedding shoot to share for today’s Capitol Inspiration.

A special thanks to MeShenee Photography for submitting this one via Two Bright Lights.

Details from the designers:

We teamed up to design a non-traditional Fall/Winter wedding in a bright palette using Pantone’s 2013 “vivacious,” a rich fuchsia color. The shoot aimed to celebrate an exciting Urban wedding in pinks and fuchsia, with silver, chartreuse and yellow accents.

This inspiration photo shoot celebrates an organic combination of Indie wedding designers (gowns, jewelry, florals, sweets) – a natural blend of modern and sustainable design.

The main aim of this shoot is to inspire brides to include thrifted/recycle components that can be seen in a modern palette and decor style. Most times when you hear “Green” wedding you think of rustic or vintage decor, our idea is that you can always find a modern or contemporary twist to green wedding decor as well.

Flowers come from organic farms, and the wedding gown is designed by one of Ohio’s up and coming Indie designers, Solitary Pearl.

We also wanted to use a non-traditional Fall palette, asking ourselves the question, can we wear white after Labor Day? The background at venue and the linens used are all white, and fun new twist in for an Autumn and Winter wedding.

From a repurposed necklace used as a headpiece, to a handmade DIY easy to do backdrop, to a venue that boasts green design and d√©cor, we hope brides looking for modern components to a Green wedding with an urban and contemporary vibe can find inspiration. Flowers include some of Fall’s favorites Dahlias, Zinnias, Mums, Roses, Godetia, and Celosia among others.
