A harmonious marriage of sleek, minimal design and playful romance delivers a celebration fit for the most stylish of urbanites
This one’s for the sophisticated city girl. Meredith Parsons of Bluebird Event Destination Management blends a daring color palette and a dramatic vision to create a minimalist, “city-chic” wedding day aesthetic that also captures the beauty and romance apropos of a nuptial celebration.
The invitation suite—a guest’s introduction to the wedding—is an indispensable tool for establishing your wedding style. In this suite, glossy text on matte black stationery teams seamlessly with layers of edgy geometric shapes, all encased in colorfully accented envelopes, teasing a taste of the urban dynamic to come.
IN FINE FORM
A solid foundation is critical for any well-designed event, and this team took the concept to heart. “Our inspiration came from our bride’s background as an architect, and the visual impact of the construction process,” Parsons explains. “Every piece of the decor had a frame, grounding the design in a very geometric way.”
Those frames can be spotted throughout the event. A sturdy white shelving unit serves as the base for a strikingly asymmetric backdrop. Boxy chandeliers repeat the motif, housing lively florals that bring visual interest to the apex of the reception tent.
Teaming sophisticated design with a bold color palette is a true balancing act. Elegant juxtaposition reigns supreme here, with luxuriously textured fuschia florals layering a touch of romance atop the modern minimalist bones of the event. Paired with traditional roses and peonies, carefully curated species including pink and black anemone, cymbidium orchids and calla lilies were chosen for their graphic forms, staying true to the event’s geometric theme.
By using the florals to deliver most of the color, Parsons was able to present them in fresh and profound ways, adding vibrancy and playfulness to an otherwise neutral scheme. Case in point: inverted blooms individually suspended above the aisle.
In keeping with the overall theme of balance, a clean-lined escort card display boasts a patterned map of Manhattan, embellished with pretty-in-pink details that direct guests in style.
