Add Warmth to an Industrial-Style Venue

Amber, butterscotch, dandelion, flax - we're obsessed with these honeyed hues in every shade under the golden sun.

warm amber tones at Chowgirls Solar Arts venue

(Above) This golden palette pops against the navy and gray details of Chowgirls at Solar Arts, an artfully reimagined industrial space. The ceremony backdrop features bouquets of roses and dried grasses with amber and ivory candles, set against a vintage boiler door in the Minneapolis venue.

(Below) This sweetheart table is even lovelier thanks to the towering centerpiece by Sadie’s Couture Floral. Oodles of toffee-colored roses float overhead, mirroring the hues of the tablescape below.

(Above) A petite butterscotchrose boutonniere pairs effortlessly with the groom's tie, a hint of the golden day itself.

(Below) These sparklers are set—of course—in yellow gold: a solitaire diamond engagement ring and vintage-inspired gold-and-diamond band for her, with a solid gold band for him, all from Edina Diamond.

(Above) The ingredient du jour is front and center in this delectable dessert table by Chowgirls Killer Catering, featuring honeyed macarons, along with blood-orange curd petite trifles and the pièce de résistance: pistachio cake with apricot-compote filling, honey buttercream, candied pistachios, honey meringue accent and edible gold luster.

(Below) Dainty gilt leaves climb up beveled cardstock in this timeless invitation suite by Lynette Rose Calligraphy, tied with a luxe yellow velvet ribbon from EmmaLinh.

(Above) This dream-worthy bouquet by Sadie’s Couture Floral, featuring apricot, ivory and blush roses along with pampas grasses and painted bronze leaves, is the perfect match for the bride’s embroidered ivory Jude Jowilson “Isabel” gown from Che Bella. (With the dapper groom the perfect match for the bride, of course.)

(Below) The sweet spot: Gold-rimmed plates, gilded flatware, amber- tinted glassware and marigold napkins, from Oliver & Grace Event Studios, make for a cheery place setting. The scene is crowned with—what else—raw honeycomb and bee-ornamented place cards.
