Lull me with your waves."

Industrial Art Chic Styled Shoot at Mass MoCA

Mass MoCA is a spectacular museum and a fantastic choice of venue for your wedding or other event if you are an artist or art lover, a bit edgy or want an unusual non-traditional wedding. I was over-the-moon to have the opportunity to do a styled photo shoot there.

I’m an architecture junkie, so my concept was to work with the structure and characteristics of the building and install florals that felt integral and would be worthy of the majestic space and reputation of the venue. I wanted to make it an intimate wedding, even though the space is so vast and open.

Another issue I wanted to explore was what to do when two brides have different color palettes and still create a cohesive design. I decided to work off of the inherent colors and textures of the building’s industrial interior to set my palette.

For the ceremony site, I chose the fully skylit connector space between galleries, using one of the overhead walkways to hang a floral curtain for a focused backdrop.

Kimberly from Everthine Bridal selected two understated, clean-lined gowns that would not compete with the textures of the building and florals.

From the pale pink, peach and rust of the remnant paint on the old brick, I chose to ratchet up the hue and go with a strong orange, melon and coral. The gorgeous locally grown French and parrot tulips and poppies provided the perfect colors, and brought the season inside for this spring shoot.

Blue tones from old floor paint and new steel accents brought us to a range of cool blues with the softest yellow-cream for our second bride. Spring flowering muscari and delphinium helped out.

We used the industrial seating available at Mass MoCA throughout; the galvanized Xavier Pauchard designed Tolix cafe chairs for the ceremony, and the science lab stools at the custom-made 25 foot long live-edge oak table on wheels.

For the reception, we fabricated tall copper structures for the tabletop to add height and bring intimacy. Lounging tulips and poofs of bright green sweet huck tied in with the upholstered furniture that lives in The Prow of Building 6.

I love to make special personal flowers. Here, floral hairpieces for both, and a sweet belt of delphinium petals to pop from the clean-lined gown.

Rounding things out to complete our shoot: Maddie of Sugarhouse Stationery brought a sharp industrial look with copper foil accents to the otherwise black and white stationery suite. Abbi of A to Z Cakes picked up the hues of the walls perfectly in her funky art cake.

An Atlanta Anniversary Shoot

How did you meet?

We met back in 2007 at a restaurant. Shandrika was a server there and I had recently moved there. I went in for food one day and we struck up conversation. Shandrika suggested she show me around the new town. Of course I agreed. We became really good friends until a romantic relationship blossomed between us a few years later.

How long have you been married?

4 years

What is the best quality about the other person?

Shandrika has an amazing heart. She is so selfless and giving.

What is the best thing that your spouse has taught you?

Shandrika has taught me how to love unconditionally. We have been through so much throughout our 10 years together, and our love for each other has carried us through it all.

What do you most look forward to in the future with your spouse?

I look forward to fulfilling all of the dreams we've discussed and being there to celebrate/enjoy it all together.

Tell us a bit about your anniversary shoot! What made you decide to do a shoot? Where did the style/design inspiration come from?

Since the beginning of our relationship Chan has been pursuing her doctorate degree. It's been such a long journey through school, Chan's diagnosis and course through breast cancer treatment, and a host of other ups and downs. This year,  2020, I am overjoyed to say Chan is finally graduating with her degree, we're both healthy, and have such a bright future ahead. It was only fitting that we celebrate these milestones and transition in life by capturing it all with an anniversary shoot.
