Styled Shoots

Trendsetting bluery

When we received this wedding inspiration shoot from Michelle Joy Photo and we were intrigued when the submission started with:

“We coined a new term for this stunning styled shoot at Swan Lake Event Center: “Bluery” (BLUE-er-y) : n. for the modern bride who thinks outside the box, greenery that has been turned on its head.”

We love that current nearlyweds are thinking outside the box, and while some may worry that straying too far from traditional means giving up the classic romance, this styled shoot team strongly believes that brides can have both. One unique statement piece that will keep your friends talking… but not so outrageous that you’ll look back on your wedding photos and wonder that you were thinking. You’ll be proud. You’ll be a trendsetter!

The floral team created a unique, modern garland and ceremony backdrop of dyed blue plumosa that became central to the shoot. Everyone uses greenery these days, and while we LOVE the whimsy and authenticity that greenery brings to a wedding, this team of creatives thought some brides might want something a little bolder.

With both bridal models dressed in romantic, modern gowns which were soft and classic, the love and romance between them and their partners ensure that the entire concept feels intentional and authentic.

The invitation suite was soft and romantic and the menu cards were designed in neutral tones which tied in perfectly.

The tablescape featured modern accents to complement the blue plumosa, with warm neutral tones that made the blue pop in just the right way. The first tablescape featured a dramatic blue garland broken up with soft roses and gold chargers and flatware. The second is on a blonde wooden farm table, absent of bluery but with a beautiful bouquet centerpiece and fabric runner for softness. With such a bold statement, balance is key.
