A Modern Seaside Wedding Vibe
New England weddings are known for their decidedly preppy style, but Urban Soirée and photographer Shannon Grant Photography wanted to put a fresh new twist on the classic seaside affair. They envisioned an “NYC Cool Girl” who blends her modern, chic design tastes with the soft and airy romance of a wedding by the sea. Plus, like any true New Yorker, she brings her epic sense of fashion to play through statement looks for both the bridesmaids and herself.
From Urban Soirée: "The Belle Mer in Newport served as a stunning canvas for our vision as we layered in our color palette made up of bright whites, rich teals, warm pinks, and gold accents. The tablescape evoked a modern minimalist yet playful feel with ikebana style florals displayed in small vessels for a more unique and sculptural look. Behind the tablescape, our floral designer Twig and Briar created an arrangement for the fireplace mantle that blended fresh florals, natural dried elements, and bare branches that resulted in a gorgeous mix of delicate textures. She also used a blend of dried and fresh florals in the bridesmaids’ bouquets that paired beautifully with each look. Fashion was a significant component of our inspiration, so we wanted to think outside the box by showcasing multiple bride and bridesmaid combinations that each represented a different style, including classic, boho, and glam. We hope this editorial reminds brides to always draw inspiration from their personal style for a wedding day look they’ll wholeheartedly adore."
