Modern Organic Shoot || Featured on ELD & Style Unveiled
We are back from our incredible trip to Europe! I have a lot of pictures to share, but in the meantime I wanted to share this Modern Organic shoot that was featured while I was away!
This is one of my favorite tablescape shoots, and apparently the blogs love it too! Every Last Detail has featured this shoot in their Style Dictionary, full of definitions and images to help brides define their style. Brilliant, if you ask me! Style Unveiled also saw the prettiness and featured it too!
We wanted to do a shoot that mixed two seemingly opposing elements…modern and organic. Modern expresses clean lines with a simple, minimal approach, while organic is typically characterized as something without structure or organization. We wanted to bring the two worlds together in a complimentary tablescape.
We started with rentals that reflected a modern tone – crisp white chiavari chairs; squared china, flatware, and stemware; and a pop of color in the napkins. Underneath the place settings sat custom placemats. This is where modern began to meld with organic – three pieces of dark wood bound together in a horizontal fashion created our placemats.
The organic side was expressed beautifully through a continuous floral garland down the center of the table. The florals used were both soft to reflect the organic nature of the tablescape, mixed with the hard lines of the succulents to tie in the more modern elements. The floral used were ‘Sahara’ and ‘Vendela’ Roses, ‘White Mojolica’ and ‘Chablis’ Spray Roses, salmon Ranunculus and peach Dahlias. For interesting texture we used Jasmine Vine, Madien Hair Fern and Berzelia Berries. And, for the succulents we used assorted Echeverias and Aeoniums.
Above the table, hung a custom chandelier. Reflecting the table, the chandelier utilized the same foundation as the placemats. Hanging from the wood were glass orbs strung at different heights and filled with a variety of organic elements. This is where the organic feel took over.
Lucky me, I got to work with the most fabulous vendors on this shoot!
