An abandoned warehouse, an unfinished industrial lot, or a wrecked building have never been the typical venue choices for a wedding. Well, give us the unthinkable and we will find the creative to turn it into reality! According to Just Lovely Wedding & Events, more and more couples like to create a unique atmosphere for the big day. And what better than an industrial space, that feels unfinished and yearns to be transformed?! With marsala tones matched beautifully to silver, gold, and ivory the rustic vibes of the industrial space are as glamorous as they are romantic. A raw branch styled with florals and tall candles made for an eclectic tablescape we all can adore. The bohemian bridal style was just as gorgeous at the entire inspiration. A lush flower crown to accompany that wild and romantic bouquet is just what our hearts desired! Thanks to Alicia Lucia Photography, the FULL GALLERY will have you pinning and looking for whimsical, unique venues to transform for your big day!
From the designer, Lauren Mestas (Just Lovely Wedding & Events): “We loved the idea of an industrial setting, taking a space that feels unfinished and transforming it into anything you want it to be. As a wedding planner, I feel like more and more couples want to create this unique atmosphere for their wedding day and are looking for venues that will allow them to do just that. For our colors, we decided to incorporate the 2015 pantone color of the year, marsala, but we didn’t want to limit ourselves to just 2 or 3 colors; in this shoot you’ll see marsala, silver/glittery silver, navy blue, forest green, ivory, and gold in this shoot. For the ceremony set design I wanted to keep the industrial factor and loved the carnival/light-up letters, personalized with the couple’s initials, but also wanted to soften & romanticize the space by adding the white draping and candle-lined aisle. We carried the romantic feel on to the table setting, where we added candles and a beautiful, elaborate floral centerpiece, all while keeping the personalization with the couple’s initials on the menu cards. We chose tartlets & macaroons for dessert to highlight a lovely alternative to cake.”
