Elegant Greenery Wedding Inspiration at Riverside PlaceKAYLEEN MICHELLE PHOTOGRAPHY
In celebration of May, and its beautiful birthstone, we are continuing the Emerald theme here on Chic Vintage Brides with today’s inspiration shoot. Inspired by one of 2017 key trends, greenery, it is filled with lush florals, timeless styling and a modern vintage tablescape, all in fabulous shades of green, from chartreuse to emerald, perfect for any season!
Here are a few words from curator and photographer, Kayleen Michelle “Greenery is the official 2017 Pantone Color of the Year, and it was stunning to see these luxurious hues, an upscale whiskey bar, beautiful models and specialty vintage rentals all come together – and at a unique and historic venue in Washington State. One of the city’s largest and oldest meeting places, the building was built in 1903 and it’s century old neoclassical architecture was once considered one of the grandest fraternal lodges in the west! Formerly the grand Spokane Masonic Temple, it is now known as Riverside Place and it is perfect for those looking for a grand city affair paired with classic elegance!
As a wedding is symbolic of new beginnings, so is “greenery” and it is “emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.” A small team of vendors can do wondrous things when they all come together, and when they are given total creative freedom. Being a small business owner, and one that strives to offer high class service to all, I wanted my team to mirror those same values. I asked the gals to “do their thing” and gave each vendor creative freedom all while keeping our green theme in mind. What is truly great, is most of the featured vendors are very new to the Spokane wedding scene, but they prove the saying true: “Though she be but little, she is fierce!””
Many thanks to the whole creative team behind this creative collaboration, and especially to Kayleen Michelle Photography & Design for capturing each and every detail so beautifully.
