Spring California Wedding Inspiration | Modern Art Wedding

Modern Art Wedding Inspiration by The Nouveau Romantics

When I first met Molly, an architect, we both arrived wearing variations of a white shirt, black pants – which told me that we’d collaborate really well, and our conversations quickly turned from away from pinterest and wedding boards, and towards her and her fiancé’s favorite architects, films, and artists. It was exciting to turn to the spaces that inspire her as the basis of our design, and when they passed this Minted Adagio invitation our way, I had a hunch that the end result would be pretty incredible. Their ceremony took place in the backyard of her grandfather’s mid-century house near Pasadena, and the reception just down the street at the CalTech Athenaeum. We talked about how to create a consistent language between the two different locations and their respective time periods, and yet play off each’s strengths to create a layered experience for their guests. It was the ultimate play between new and old, modern and traditional, and this overgrown and colorful collaboration was even more stunning in person!
