Are you considering a unique wedding venue, and looking for some serious inspiration?
If so, check out this stunning wedding at The Detroit Institute of Arts
. Museum weddings are a chic and sophisticated way to say “I Do
”, and Joanna and Hebert got it oh so right! The Detroit Institute of Arts houses a wealth of incredible modern and contemporary art; meaning Joanna and Hebert picked a wedding venue
already abounding with fabulous backdrops for artsy wedding photography.
I love the fusion of modern, elegant sophistication with vintage
, artsy touches. Joanna’s birdcage veil (*we're giving one away for this week's Savvy Steal!
) was vintage-chic with a bit of Vogue couture thrown in there. And check out the back of Joanna’s Ines Di Santo wedding dress
… it brings me back to the Baroque era (a period of opulence and elegance). I could go on and on about this wedding, but I’ll let the pictures to the talking!
Some of the drool-worthy details…
- An ivy-covered chuppah
- Unexpected calla lilies
lined the white aisle, bursting from their vases at abstract angles
- Mix and match bridesmaids' dresses
: they all wore warm slate grey (some with a touch of black), but chose different silhouettes to flatter each girl's figure
- Eco-chic succulents, along with more exploding calla lilies, adorned the wedding reception tables
- Open-toe gold, ivory and black snake skin bridal heels
, each with a chic black rosette
- Video screens, in true 2010 iDo
A million thanks to Tracy of RecycledBride
for sharing this beyond-beautiful artful wedding with me!!
