Modern Elegance Wedding

Modern Elegance Wedding

.

.

Inspired by the bold combination of black and white, today's wedding feature is perfect for the fashion-forward bride looking for a modern twist on her wedding. 

.

Traci took her talents to the road and designed a destination wedding in Naples! In an unbelievable transformation, the couples five car garage was transformed into a reception hall to entertain the wedding guests. Traci's visionary design was composed of a bold color scheme with clean lines, geometric shapes and organic details.

If Traci did not snap before pictures, you would not believe that the reception was in a garage. Take a look for yourself...

Honestly, it is a testament to her hard work and design talent to see the transformation. The backdrop of the beautiful property enhanced the overall family-style feeling of the event. A tent was added to the outside of their garage to extend the reception area.

This is a look from inside the garage area into the tent, and it looks like one complete room.

Color Palette

The bold pattern of choice to create this modern inspired wedding was black and white stripes. Notice the drapery around the hall was hung in a striped pattern of black and white, and the lanterns and table cloths carry the same black and white pattern.  Create a modern theme by choosing a bold pattern and sticking with it. 

.

To offset the bold colors and patterns, Traci added organic pops of green in the floral arrangements, table cloths and lanterns. Don't be afraid to go bold, but complement it with softer color and texture pops.

Decorations

Traci covered every inch of the garage in fabric. The fabric was long enough to be gathered at the floor to create a very elegant look and soften the boldness of the pattern. 

.

The design was created with cozy home décor details such as vintage inspired furniture which seamlessly blended with the clean, modern lines of black and white stripes and geometric shapes.

.

.

Guests were treated to an outdoor lounge area. 

.

.

.

The vintage inspired furniture placed throughout the venue created a warm family-style environment. The guest sign in table was welcoming and personal. 

.

.

.

Traci used a vintage hutch for the candy bar.

.

.

.

Guests were able to take pictures and post them in a book for the bride and groom to keep.

.

.

Try renting or bringing in furniture pieces to your venue. It adds charm and elegance to any space and creates an inviting environment.

Guest Tables 

.

.

Traci mixed large and small arrangements all composed of white and green flowers. The groom was a math teacher so she used vintage flash cards as the table numbers! Such a fun and personal touch. 

.

.

.

Traci painted three chandeliers white and hung black crystals from each.  This is a view looking into the garage area of the reception.

The escort card table was bold and beautiful.

.

Cocktail tables were scattered around so guests could enjoy the beautiful day!

    What do you do with all the stuff from the wedding? Do you sell it? Where do you find the furniture? Beautiful job!
