We’re always smitten with unique ideas for weddings and today’s photo shoot full of industrial wedding inspiration is no exception. Here in the DC-area wedding scene we are always looking for ways to combine the city with the rural, the hard with the soft, the urban with the rustic, the classic with the offbeat – that’s Washington DC area for ya! Sugar from DIYva Designs and a team of local wedding pros bring us tons of great inspiration for pairing masculine elements and feminine florals. It is all beautifully captured by EyeWonder Photography. And how cute is that single metal flower tucked into the bridal bouquet?!
From Sugar: Behind the couple, we propped up an old leather stretching tool from circa the 1920’s and put a few flowers here and there for a shab-industrial look. The fragile flowers in between the wood and metal bars created a gorgeous juxtaposition of masculine and feminine.
This Jorge Manuel dress from Hitched Salon in Georgetown, fit our model, Amanda, like a glove! It was perfect; straight, decisive lines, with an almost technical composition made this stunning dress fit right into our modvin (modern+vintage, new word alert) style shoot! We loved Lisa (Petals and Promises) for the selection of flowers here! The little metal flower we threw in made it fit our theme perfectly and did not overpower her femme-fabulousity.
The centerpiece was what appears to be an old light fixture, and we took deer antlers and placed them in the middle, with flowers around it. We wanted an industrial feel here, but chose softer colors for the flowers to make it just romantic enough.
I designed this stationery set keeping in mind that I wanted to use physical metal elements, and make it super chic with a cool eco-friendly box. The little clock on the actual invitation body, which is made to look like its nailed onto cork, and the tiny metal keys on the bright RSVP inserts really set it off!
This wet bar is designed as a his/hers wetbar. We predict that fancy wetbars will be a hit this coming season! Everyone went crazy last year with cupcakes and cakepops, and this year the liquor will be dressed to kill. Not only does it save money on liquor to offer your guests one or two specialty drinks with wine and beer to supplement, but it looks awesome!
