Pretty Pastel Art Nouveau Wedding Inspiration


Today’s Art Nouveau inspired wedding editorial comes in a palette of the prettiest pastels – making a refreshing change to the dark and moody fall hues we’ve been seeing so much of lately. With every detail bringing the Edwardian era to life, from the Alphonse Mucha inspired stationery suite, to the ceremony backdrop, painted wedding cake, and stunning turn of the century venue; this really is a a beautiful step back in time.

Pretty Pastel Art Nouveau Wedding Inspiration

Marisa of Peterson Design & Photography shares….“This was a total passion project for me! I absolutely adore all things vintage and wanted to have a mixture of classic art nouveau with modern touches that could be applicable to any bride. Some of the main elements I really wanted to focus on were color and texture inspired by our venue, Ruby Street which was originally built as a church in 1905 during the original American arts and crafts movement. The invitation suite by GoGoSnap was a jumping off point for many of the elements we used in this shoot. We focused on texture with the soft ombre influences in the linens, opal ring, ribbon, and arch and with patterns in the repeating floral, scrollwork and feathers.”

Isn’t it fabulous?? Here are a few more words about the details from Marisa….. “We chose the color palette to tie in with the venue, and utilize common colors for the period. And Here Come the Blooms created floral arrangements incorporating the grandeur of the era with a modern twist.

The cake designed by Nicole Bakes Cakes incorporated the ombre and metallic elements of the shoot with the stained glass of the venue and the flower motif from GoGoSnap!‘s invitation suite.

We wanted the attire to reflect the era, so both gowns incorporated unique scrollwork and lace reminiscent of art nouveau designs while the gentlemen donned classic suits with a subtle floral element to their bowties.

The custom made ceremony arch by Paper Moon Shoppe was one of my favorite elements as we worked closely with them to envision a design that hearkened back to the Art Nouveau illustrations in wallpaper and magazines. The signage, ceremony backdrop and sweetheart table backdrop were all hand made and painted by Paper Moon Shoppe and were designed and created over many hours of work.

For the tables cape we wanted to incorporate the feather, ombre and art nouveau motifs together from various other elements in the shoot, so we added gold ombre feathers to the superb menus by GoGoSnap! which all sat upon gorgeous vintage dishware from Via La Roche and ombre napkins from QT’s Pretty Little Things. We wanted a lush and elegant setting for our newlyweds to enjoy their first meal together.”
