The raw elements of the Waterfire Arts Center juxtaposed with fresh green foliage & modern décor created an ethereal vibe for this industrial glam styled shoot.
Bright natural light flooded the preserved industrial framework of the former rubber manufacturing facility, bouncing off the exposed steel beams and weathered bricks. The raw authenticity and muted colors of the space inspired Karen Taddei of Lilacs to choose her signature green and white floral palette with pops of burgundy and silver accents. “This was a natural palette not to compete with, but respect. The simplicity of the green pear branches turning burgundy with the season combined with the acid green viburnum and hanging amaranthus infused the industrial space with fresh beauty,” Karen described. An airy canopy of chiffon draping and three beaded chandeliers designed by floated above the zinc-top table, softening the space with warmth and romance.
“The draping installation combined with the beaded chandeliers over the tables added a dreamy, airy quality that was illuminated by the gorgeous light that streamed through the large windows. We kept the look flowing and romantic with a touch of drama to soften the space,” Christen of Ryan Designs described.
Soaring arrangements of earthy, autumn-kissed branches and hanging flora in silver fluted vases added a touch of drama while the clean lines of the transparent ghost chairs completed the modern look. The bouquets and headpieces were designed with lush peonies, ranunculus, and sweet pea to reflect the romanticism of the Midsummer’s Night inspired fashions from Modern Trousseau.
Raw-edged paper painted with icy blue watercolor by The Paper Perfectionist embodied the industrial glam vision flawlessly.
