Our North Georgia venue was a perfect fit for this Valentine’s Day Wedding shoot! Since we’re a vintage industrial wedding venue in the suburbs of Atlanta, The Corner District has all the charm of a city wedding venue, but with the quaint ambiance of a small town. Our venue is known and loved for its speakeasy-esque parlor with exposed brick and plaster walls, original hardwood floors and ceilings, and the most dreamy lighting thanks to the huge windows in the front of the building and multiple chandeliers glimmering above.
The lighting is truly what set the mood for this Valentines Day inspiration shoot, and Marc & Anna Photo and Film captured the details beautifully.
Inspiration behind the day:
This inspiration shoot was designed by wedding planner and floral designer, Ivy Marie Weddings, who dreamt up a unique take on this beloved couple’s holiday. Favorite elements of this shoot included a moody palette of black, deep raspberry, green and gold, a two-piece dip dyed wedding dress from Sweet Caroline Styles, an intimately styled setting and plenty of bling from Trumpet & Horn and Melànie D.
Advice for brides planning now:
For brides wanting to recreate this look, don’t be afraid to go bold! From a dark red lip to a crop top wedding dress, from black iced desserts to blood red candles, to make a statement that stands out – go bold! Pair moody details with refined details, such as classic pops of gold, lots of greenery, and neutrals to allow your color palette to shine.
Brides who love the idea of a colored dress, consider talking with a custom makeup designer who can make the perfect hues that will compliment both your dress and skin tone. We loved the eye shadow crafted by Love Thistle paired with a bold red lip that tied in the raspberry dip-dyed skirt. If you love the idea of black iced cakes and cookies, but don’t love the idea of it staining guests’ teeth, talk to your baker. It’s better to start with black icing and add just a little food coloring (versus starting with vanilla and adding a lot of coloring).
