I'm actually doing the design and decor for our Production Coordinator, Katie's wedding, and I have to say that I feel very intimidated by the process because 1) I know her and 2) her fiancé, Tim, is actually a very talented industrial designer. I think that's why I created 4 mood boards for them instead of my usual 3. Because I wanted to impress them.
This was the first mood board that I presented them with. It incorporates a lot of the essential elements that are the most important to the couple. It also incorporates orange because they're getting married in a venue that is predominately orange. It sounds awful, but trust me, it's very cool. So rose gold and blush happen to be Katie's two favorite things and when you combine those things the results tend to be very soft and romantic. I kind of like that. But then you also have Tim who mentioned that he likes denim blues and the clean lines of mid-century modern design, so I didn't want to go overly frou-frou and girly with it. That's why I brought in the wood chargers and slate paper goods. They both mentioned that they do not like traditional flowers or floral arrangements at all, and they they wanted to incorporate Bells of Ireland. I love that because again it keeps things from edging into the too soft and feminine category. I thought it would be cool to do a living wall of overgrown greenery just kind of cascading down in beautiful disarray.
I like this mood board. They didn't pick it, but I liked the one that they picked even more, so I can't wait to execute it and show you the results!
