Without fail, when I hear the term “blush” for a color, I think of Steel Magnolias and Shelby’s wedding colors of “Blush and Bashful”. It was the most late 80’s wedding imaginable and also the “girliest”. So much so that a roadkill armadillo cake was the only way to combat the overwhelming femininity (pretty sure a womb was her design inspiration). Jump forward 25 years and reverse that polarity for today’s post. This blush wedding inspiration shoot at Moss Events Denver is the quintessential modern wedding and proves that subtle touches of pink can neutralize classic, masculine details and soften a stark, industrial location. When you start with such a spartan backdrop, the design of the decor is allowed to stand on its own merits. But that also means that has to be very commanding because the eye falls solely there. Like the armadillo cake of ages past, the blush sequin table cloth is a big exclamation point that shifts the gender scale. Pink and white roses carry the blush pink softness throughout the shoot and highlight other pink details like the edging on her dress tiers. Her unique dress is a contemporary statement that is striking in its design but simplified in it’s silhouette. The floral crown is today’s bridal headwear staple – an answer to yesteryear’s voluminous bubble veil. But for every bit that her influence is modern femininity; his is classic, formal masculinity. Nearly ever shoot you see has a bride that catches you eye. This is no exception. But rarely is the groom so striking. I’m over here fanning myself like a Southern lady at Shelby’s wedding. “My word!” Some men can really rock a suit and he’s styled so handsomely with his bow tie and pocket square from Denver’s own Knotty Tie Co. The vendor list on this wedding shoot is very Colorado-centric and you feel the influence of our state in the overall aesthetic. Ever able to create civilized beauty in the face of ruggedness, the look is every bit as Colorado as Shelby’s wedding was Louisiana.
