Modern updates on classic Western fashion tell a tale of legendary romance.
All Aboard the Love Train to the Urban Growler in St. Paul
651 Studio Floral's inspiration behind this shoot was "love is destiny." The travel-inspired celebration highlights love's journey and everything that comes with it. “Let’s be real we are not in control of who we end up with; it is destiny. At the right place and right time we are destined to meet our forever plus one!" -- Candace Holmstadt, owner of 651 Studio Floral.
Guests are welcomed to Urban Growler for a celebration of love and destiny with luggage tags, which can double as favors, and a sign dedicated to where nearlyweds met. Signage by Night Owl Designs hints at the couple’s upcoming step into matrimony.
As a symbol of gathering, the irresistible bites on the grand charcuterie board is open for guests from near and far to graze upon.
The bride’s stewardess-inspired bridesmaid dons red polka dot gloves and a classic hat, appearing like she just came from the airways. Bride also makes a statement in her bold colored heels, effortlessly matching the warm autumn color palette of the day.
Look of Love
Newlyweds share a look of love under the ethereal ceremony installation. Sealed with a kiss, no detour could take away from their magical moment.
“The color scheme was pulled from a map, with the teal blue, accents of red to be bold and symbolizing love and romance, and hues of peach to soften the whole look.” -- Candace
Creation by Emily Grace Cakes adorned with dried orange slices sets the tone for this rustic chic dessert table. Nearby, travel books made for excellent serving trays with little biscuits atop. Almost appearing too good to eat, blue, mauve and brown macaroons adhere to the color scheme.
Table for Two
The sweetheart table steals the show with an abundance of blooming botanicals of red and peach hues. Yielding a cozy ambience, blue taper candles in brass holders and red tea lights illuminate the space. But perhaps the most important décor of all? Beer, of course.
After the whirlwind of nuptials, the couple celebrates with a well-deserved drink, from one of the many delicious selections from Urban Growler, by candlelight and globe, hinting at the journey of life they will embark on together as husband and wife.
Couple finds a few spots to sneak away to soak in newlywed bliss and reflect on the successful day of voyaging into a new chapter together.
“The end of the shoot represents how too much celebration and travel can end you broke and thirsty!” – Candace
