For those that know me, it's no surprise that I consider myself a "rocker chic". I own a collection of rock band belt buckles. Yeah, I'm that obsessed. If I could go back in time, I would be best friends with Robert Plant. That's why when one of our favorite wedding planners Trina Schmidt of Trina Schmidt Weddings asked us to design the florals for a Glam Rock couple, we screamed YES! As if doing a wedding that allowed us freedom of creativity wasn't enough, it's been featured in Offbeat Bride.
Lauren and Bryan love heavy metal and wanted to incorporate that love into their wedding celebration. They chose black, purple and silver as the basis for their design. We applaud Lauren for being a rock star and choosing a black sequin wedding gown from WToo by Watters. Her bridesmaids all wore shades of lavender and purple. To keep it fresh and hip Bryan ad his groomsmen wore black and white Adidas and guitar picks for boutonnieres. Be still our rocker hearts.
Knowing all the little details that Trina had planned with the couple such as invitations that looked like concert tickets, and table designations of album covers from their favorite bands we knew the direction we had to go in. When designing for a wedding that's outside of the box, we always keep in mind that it should still feel elegant. We used metal stands brimming with flowers full of texture and color that aren't your standard wedding flowers. Our choice was roses, stock, sweet peas, scabiosa, tulips and cosmos, just to name a few. We love that the couple chose to become one under a canopy of black sheer fabric. We used only a touch and added a floral cascade to keep it soft and romantic. For reception we chose silver and gunmetal linens with lush floral in a high and low style for a dramatic effect. Overall the look was bold yet luxurious to the delight of our couple and their guests.
