Today’s monochromatic moody wedding session by Stone House Creative and captured by Vanessa Renae is a great way to get this week started! Blending a moody studio vibe with an elevated bridal aesthetic, the team focused on texture to play up the moodiness and showcase depth within the minimalist palette: a hand-painted backdrop for portraits, soft and structured fabrics of the dresses, airy baby’s breath and marble candle holders
Monochromatic Moody Wedding Ideas – What was your design inspiration?
“Baby’s breath – which sounds crazy, because I’ve never liked it! But I wanted to do something different. I wanted to go moody, which I’ve never really done before. I thought the best way to do this would be to scale way back and start with a monochromatic palette (grey, black, and white). I took this general concept of repeated simple elements and worked with it throughout the overall design: the monochromatic palette, baby’s breath en masse, a single element bouquet, and so on. “
“Baby’s breath on a table en masse is one thing (and it turns out, it’s an AWESOME thing) but a baby’s breath bouquet is just a little sad from this florist’s point of view. For the bridal bouquet, I wanted to keep it streamlined and smaller, and focusing just on one main ingredient: garden roses. Lush, pillowy garden roses. I added in a few types of greenery (camellia and scented geranium) along with some Queen Anne’s lace tucked way in deep.”
“We went in planning to find a really clean-lined, minimal dress (and we found one – that gorgeous high neck!!) but we were distracted on our search by this amazing, full ballgown. It features a modern lace overlay with a soft tulle underlay, with a sort of smokey champagne tone to it. We couldn’t decide between them, so we did both!”
“I knew that I wanted to create a baby’s breath table runner right from the start, and everything came together from that starting point. I wanted it to be full, with a few wilder pieces growing out of it. I chose a grey linen to form a really clean, simple base and then tucked in a few marbled candleholders and black taper candles, simple place cards with a modern type, and matte grey plates. I chose silver flatware, which was a really nice change from the trendy golds and coppers. “
