It was a dream come true to see this phenomenal navy blue inspiration shoot recently published in Minnesota Bride. We picked up our copy last week and let our a squeal loud enough for our neighbors to hear (this shoot is on pg. 92-95). We had a PHENOMENAL vendor team assembled, and every.single.detail was perfection.
What we loved so much about this shoot is that it took "something blue" to a whole other level! From the florals to the table setting & cake, every design element had tones of navy blue. Paired with soft gray tones and crisp white, it was ethereal, classic and stunning!
The Machine Shop is a gorgeous venue, to begin with- it has a beautiful, neutral, industrial vibe that works great for a variety of design themes. The natural light during the day is really beautiful, and the wood flooring is gorgeous!
For this shoot, one of the key design elements was the suspension arrangements for the ceremony and reception. It was all about elevating (no pun intended) the floral decor. Using copious greenery, a handing arbor was created for the ceremony and a five wire rings wrapped in garland suspended over the main dining table. These set the tone for the remainder of the design elements.
The navy blue was woven into the napkins, bouquet and groom's suit, while also being the main focus for the marbled cake design (which was jaw-dropping art). The table linen was a subtly textured white on white patterned that paired wonderfully with the acrylic accents used in the menu card and table number. And the open back white chairs? Divine!
Florals in the bouquet included garden roses and the oh, so romantic, delicate and luxurious anemone. Ah. Are you swooning yet?
