Modern styled shoot with romantic décor and pops of dark gray, burgundy and rust at the Georgia Museum of Art in Athens, Georgia
Inside the Georgia Museum of Art, a contemporary building in the heart of Athens, Georgia that boasts an extensive art collection, modern architecture set the mood for a romantic styled shoot.
Surrounded by gorgeous works of art, the creative team brought in elegant décor and whimsical floral arrangements that popped in shades of dark gray, burgundy and rust. They also incorporated geometric elements, that complemented the museum’s industrial feel.
Starting with the invitation suite, the layout featured bone-colored paper with copper trim in geometric shapes. Minimalist text was printed in a soft, muted blue and the layout was surrounded by sprigs of greenery and a golden yellow garden rose.
In an ivory, long-sleeved lace gown, the bride was an absolute vision. The dress featured a V-neck, open back and romantic sheer sleeves. She wore her auburn hair in curls and completed the look with a bold lip and a pair of nude, pointed kitten heels.
She carried a lush bouquet of fresh myrtle and eucalyptus, white roses, golden yellow garden roses and assorted florals that popped in deep purple and burgundy. It was held together with a white tulle ribbon, which was the perfect finishing touch. Her groom complemented her in a sleek pair of black slacks, a classic white button-down and floral print tie.
Surrounded by original works of art in stunning antique frames, the couple danced across hardwood floors from room to room where the walls were painted with different shades of rose, burgundy and white. He twirled her and held her in his arms before they made their way over to the most gorgeous tablescape.
A romantic table for two was set with a dark brown linen and classic black folding lawn chairs. On top, there was a floral centerpiece in a black ceramic vase and black candlesticks in antique gold holders. At each place setting, there was a white charger, white dinner plate, set of gold flatware and two wine glasses. A soft blue linen napkin was tied and placed at each setting, and tucked inside was a delicate sprig of eucalyptus.
It was the perfect intimate dinner party, and after the bride and groom made a toast and clinked their glasses, it was time to indulge in something sweet!
In front of an exposed gray brick wall, the dreamiest four-tiered cake was displayed on a silver geometric stand. The tiers were all different shapes and sizes, and each incorporated texture and pattern to reflect various painting techniques. It boasted a mix of colors including white, muted blue, rose and copper tones. After cutting into the delicious masterpiece, the couple couldn’t help but dive in for a bite!
For the final shot, the couple posed in front of a large, wooden triangular structure, adorned with a lush arrangement of greenery and florals. Their smiles, beauty and love for one another exuded every bit of romance and magic.
After a full day of laughing, dancing and admiring the works of art, the couple put on their matching black felt Panama hats and sealed the shoot with a kiss.
