neutral minimalist art studio wedding

From Stay Co. “When I was approached to style this wedding editorial shoot I was immediately captivated by the concept. The photographer sent me some paintings by Andrew Wyeth. The mood, the layers, the textures, the still life… I was automatically drawn in. I studied the paintings as I thought up the story I wanted to tell to go with these beautiful artworks.

What really stood out to me in the art was the charcoal, the unfinished look, the messy paint…all the imperfections. I started to create a story scene in an unfinished art studio. I started working in all the layers sanding off some of the paint of the pedestals, playing with the layers of the scene and how I was going to capture the unfinished imperfection but still keep it clean, modern, and organic.”

From Marni Wishart Photography “The creative energy in a space such as that coupled nicely with the natural light in our private studio, casting shadows and letting the table setting and environment become as much a work of art as anything else being drawn or painted.

Our model couple also brought a great deal of inspiration as they had only been married a few days prior to our styled editorial, their connection and chemistry infused real romance into the scene. Our planner and stylist, Erica Kopp, has a signature style of modern minimalism which speaks of including the things that are meaningful and purposeful to enhance the moments you want to ‘stay in’ -as her brand exalts with nothing that detracts from the moment. This was all brought together with organic, natural, and even a few vegan elements.”

“The floral design, by Beehive Floral Co was meant to compliment and also tie in to the natural hanging grapevines of the existing trellis. She wove in blooms as well as greenery and then created a floral centerpiece modeled after the concept of a still life painting with a ‘gathered from the garden’ arrangement.

Our cake designer specializes in vegan cakes, she created this lemon masterpiece with all natural, and organic ingredients and flavors — all the way down to the “painted” brushstrokes of coloring for the icing which is entirely tinted with natural plants.”

“The bride wears a natural fiber silk gown by Dolly Pearl which has a beautiful simplicity in lines and an unmatched, elegant flow. As we began photographing in the morning, the crisp air was the perfect setting to layer in a sweater wrap. She is barefoot and comfortable as anyone is at home. The groom is wearing a thrifted linen jacket and pants in neutral tones and natural/organic textures.

The illustrations were hand drawn by Carli Anna with an emphasis on charcoal, ink.  With a ‘work in progress’ feel, the imagery is drawn and painted on handmade papers with rich textures and neutral tones.”

“The tablescape, set on a wooden slat tabletop, is accented with modern, clean-lined pieces as well as hand-made pottery, artist’s paint tubes and brushes, a homemade candle and linen place settings. The combination of clear glass next to pottery items created an interplay of sunlight and shadow which danced across the space and became a character with a voice in its own right as the time passed and the light changed moment to moment.”
