Gallery in White: An Artfully Modern Wedding Shoot

For this captivating conceptual shoot, a talented team of Houston-based wedding creatives transformed a light-filled urban loft into a monochromatic museum space in which their own works were put on full display. “We wanted to explore the dynamics of a crisply modern aesthetic and cast our creations as the art forms they really are,” says paper artist Sarah Blome (pronounced like the word “bloom,” quite fittingly given that she specializes in constructing flowers). The blank white canvas of the setting came to life through a clean yet elaborate array of rich textures and sculptural details. Though mediums were mixed to exquisite effect, each creation stood on its own in this beautiful little exhibition.
Exuberantly arranged by Phuong Nguyen of Mibellarosa Designs and perched atop tall pedestals, fresh flowers provided striking contrast to Sarah’s whitewashed wall display of splendidly scattered paper roses, accented with touches of foliage to tie everything together.
Phuong used peonies, French tulips, eucalyptus, trailing amaranthus, and Queen Anne’s lace to create this dramatic bouquet. “The size of the bouquet offset the softness of its blooms and gave it grandeur,” Phuong says. “I wanted to go beyond the traditional norms of wedding floral design and show brides the beauty of something different.”
Black-and-white botanical illustrations added a pop of interest to this elegantly minimal invitation suite, designed by Wendy Du.
Added textural elements emboldened the look of this softly colored compote arrangement.
After getting made up by Hey Lovely, statuesque models were wrapped in flower-flecked tulle. Sarah finished the looks with architectural faux floral fascinators. One was made in the likeness of calla lilies, and the other was crafted to resemble delicately intertwined dogwood vines; both were amazingly lifelike.
Featuring beaded paper flowers and origami detailing, this piece was inspired by handwoven Japanese obis.
Made by Buttercup Bakery, this organically elegant cake was topped with a sprig of elderberries.
“Photographer Marsais elevated the beauty of each piece through her images,” Sarah says. “Her photographs are imbued with a sense of lightness and airiness.”

Great to see how traditional and modern meld and work against or with one another. White is so traditional when it comes to a colour associated with weddings - these modern takes with the colour are so inspiring!
