Getting married at a Brewery or looking for inspiration for an out-of-the-box-wedding? Then look no further for rustic inspiration than from this recent styled shoot that we we collaborated on at Hog River Brewery.
From Jubilee Events:
We came up with the idea to create an urban oasis when Anaise approached us to work on a shoot and had an amazing new venue in mindâHog River Brewing Co. in Hartford, CT. The building is located in a bustling section of Hartford and it's interior mirrors that same energy. Brick walls and concrete floors, lots of industrial fixtures and tall spacious ceilings with a laid back welcoming vibe are what you find inside.
It's modern, fresh and edgy and we worked to create a design that fits with the look of the brewery while also bringing it to life with organic and natural elements. We kept the color story neutralâvivid green, white and concrete grey with mixed metals like copper, steel and gold. With hanging greenery installations, a living wall, modern and fresh drapery that incorporates new techniques (like dip dye and metallics) and bountiful floral details, we sought to create an oasis inside this industrial space. The looks comes together through the talents of Ryan Designs and Flowers by Justine, along with details from a local maker, Hartford Prints and local chalk artist Jaime LaDucer and some fresh new rental items from Peak Event Services, a division of Rentals Unlimited that is currently launching.
It wouldn't be fresh and modern without bridal looks right from the April bridal market! Our stylist, Beth Chapman of The White Dress by the Shore, selected several new looks from her visit to bridal market in New York weeks earlier to guarantee our look in new and edgy. Clean and elegant with long sleeves was her vision for our bride and a stunning bold blue for the groom! And of course to signify a party, a bride needs a sparkly gown! Beth selected the perfect one from Blush by Hayley Paige as a second look.
From TWD owner/stylist, Beth Chapman:
In order to offset the rustic vibe of the brewery, I selected fashion that was clean, modern and sophisticated. The long sleeve Antonio Gual crepe gown embodied both of those characteristics. The dramatic open back provided a little bit of edge and sex appeal. The reception dress from Blush by Hayley Paige carried through the sophisticated feel, but added a subtle touch of sparkle to signify that this indeed was a party! The deep red of the Amsale bridesmaid dress was the perfect compliment to the soft tones of the gorgeous florals by Justine.
