Style Unveiled Paper Styled Shoot Challenge - Bash! Weddings and Events

 

How much fun have you had browsing the wedding inspiration that the teams from the Style Unveiled Paper Challenge designed and put together!!??  I can't remember the last time I had this much fun with featuring posts on Style Unveiled :)  The ideas that the teams have come up with from a single piece of paper are so creative and all different!!  Bash! Weddings and Events (a wedding coordination company out of Portland Oregon) decided to put an Eastern Indian twist to their styled shoot .. I love it!  The colors are so vibrant and the sparkly gold table linens definitely stand out to impress.  Jessica and her team chose to wrap not only the candles with the paper, but the candelabras as well!  Such a great idea!

There were so many interesting images and ideas that came from this shoot, that I felt it natually told a few different stories ... so be sure to check back for more from this shoot soon!

Inspirational write-up by Jessica Church of Bash! Weddings and Events:

I was so excited the day my package arrived which contained my paper for the paper shoot challenge.  I fell in love the second I saw it! Purple and gold with a beautiful damask motif. I instantly thought  “Traditional Eastern Indian Wedding.” Glam, Luxe, Over the Top.  The more I thought about it, I decided  I wanted to do a modern take on the traditional “Eastern Indian” décor. I have many clients that want to stick to the traditional hues and themes that are found in their culture, but there are also so many more that want to do something a bit different. I thought this photo shoot would be an amazing opportunity to combine traditional and modern and create something that was beautiful, fun, memorable and still paying tribute to cultural heritage.  I immediately contacted Victoria with Luxury Events! She always creates the most amazing Mandap's and Chuppah's and I knew that she would be able to bring this photo shoot to life. Victoria and Greenlight creative created the most amazing Mandap set-up that I have ever seen. The look was completed with proper furnishings from Classic Vintage Rentals.  I decided to do Eastern and Western bridal attire as so many multi-cultural couples are now incorporating both ceremonies into their wedding day. This gives the couple 2 clothing options and allows both the bride and groom to participate in their respective meaningful ceremonies. This also  makes parents and immediate family very happy! Our models did an amazing job displaying their heritage. 
For the reception setting we wanted a modern, but glamorous feel. I knew that I had to incorporate sequins linen and amazing  décor. I loved how we used the paper to wrap around the candle sticks and candles themselves.  The table came together with lots of gold candlesticks, large floral arrangements atop candelabras, stationery with the same design as our original paper, but in a different color that was in our color scheme, our cake designer mimicked the design of our paper into the cake and made a true work of art with hand painting detail and ornate sugar flowers! The feel was very luxe, glamorous and modern.
Being inspired by a single piece of paper was truly liberating and freeing. It is so easy to get wrapped up into “themes” and “what’s current now” but working from a single piece of paper made every choice seem very new, unique and creative. I feel like everyone involved was more inspired and did things that were more “off the cuff” than usual. Thank you so much to Heather for allowing us to be a part of this fabulous project! I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and hope that we inspire many people with this!
