Edgy glamour gets spun on its head today with an amazingly creative shoot from Adonye Jaja Photography and Bluebird Productions. With an arts district warehouse setting, altar made out of metal ladders, and a bride who looks straight out of the pages of The Great Gatsby – today’s shoot is truly an inspiration!
From Bluebird Prodcutions – “Denver is a town brimming with a myriad of creative individuals collaborating on projects that inspire and elevate the style of weddings and events – even in this age of ‘above-and-beyond’ innovation. We were driven to create this edgy and unique shoot to showcase the artistic style and talents of local vendors.
Inspired by the RiNo arts district of Denver, an emerging urban neighborhood rife with all things hip and artisanal, we centered our shoot on an art collective called Converge, housed in a restored industrial garage. Set against the sparse and rough aesthetic of the venue, we lavished our tablescapes with lush velvety florals, intertwining them with modern touches and hints of nostalgia.”
“The centerpiece of our shoot was an altar constructed out of vintage crates, boxes, and metal ladders and then draped with velvet curtains, sheer chiffon, and Edison light bulb strands. Candles, bell jars and flowers bedecked the altar space with a serene Lady of Guadalupe presiding over – a nod to the colorful Hispanic culture present in Denver.
Our model was styled in a custom gown made by a local designer. The graceful lines of satin evoke an air of Old Hollywood and yet the look is sleekly modern, enhanced by the simplicity and elegance of a bobbed haircut styled with feminine curls, a natural face, and dark berry stained lips.”
