We’ve been featured! Love & Lavender has published our Industrial Topics themed styled shoot live on their blog! As an event planner, one of the most satisfying parts of my job is planning and styling editorial shoots with other creatives. Styled shoots allow for a certain level of creative freedom that you don’t often get the chance to have while planning weddings for couples or clients. You get to tell a story and run wild with every part. For this one, we did just that!
Here’s a little back story behind my design inspiration:
“When you think of Baltimore, you immediately envision city — full of life, people, and most importantly charm. Baltimore breaks the barrier between industrial and terrain. There are concrete slabs and high-rises all over, but then there’s water and parks to soften the mix. Finding the balance between those two extremes is exactly what we wanted to bring to life with our Industrial Tropics piece.
“One of Baltimore’s newest venues, The Assembly Room, was reinvented from an old Baltimore city classic, Bourbon Street. It’s located in the heart of the city, just blocks away from Fells Point and features an industrial warehouse of exposed brick beauty while offering its events the opportunity to create with the space whatever your heart desires.
“We chose to bring the balance of classic city charm and scenic views to life byway of Industrial Tropics. Keeping the overall theme dark and moody allowed for us to capture Baltimore in a way it’s naturally seen from an outsider’s perspective. Bringing in the fresh elements of greenery and garden allowed for us to showcase the Baltimore our wedding community knows and loves.
“Our inspiration was our city. We started with an old Baltimore staple and brought in organic materials by Petal Pushers to make the space feel homelier and warmer. The contrast between the wooden farm table, gold chargers and ebony finished china complimented the venues natural space. When creating the initial vision Angelica & Co. Weddings found that the beauty of many spaces was in its difference. Recognizing what may be unknown and undiscovered, was where her focus laid. She loved that not everything “matched” and that each individual piece could’ve stood on its own, but all played so well together as one.
“As a nod to the venues past life, Bourbon Street, we mixed up some cocktails, poured some wine and cheers these venue’s new beginning! We came together as a vendor team to give a kudos to what once was and embrace the future of what is to come.
“Captured magnificently by Meghan Elizabeth Photography, and displayed so well through the hard work of the following vendors, we’re proud to represent our city in style.”
A big thank you to these visionaries for their time, hard work, and talent! This dream couldn’t have come to life without each and every one of you.
