Gray and Illuminating Wedding Ideas for the Pantone Color of the Year
The perfect minimalist wedding dress with a darling touch of detail? This slim-fitted crepe trumpet dress from Blue Sky Bridal featured a sheer neckline and long sleeves in dotted tulle to add a gorgeously delicate polka dot effect! The result is modern, chic, and utterly unforgettable! Hair stylist ibethchan gave the bride a beautiful half-up hairstyle that showed off the sheer boatneck and keyhole back, while giving our gorgeous redhead bride a romantic hairdo that framed her face and left her long locks in a wild cascade.
The concrete walls of the Jupiter Hotel‘s ballroom added an industrial urban feel to the ceremony, and also introduced one of Pantone’s two Colors of the Year for 2021. The Ultimate Gray backdrop was a stunning counterpoint to the airy flower arrangements with bleached ferns, sprays of pearly lunaria, white roses, and dried grasses.
Florist Wildflower Portland combined bleached ferns, white anthuriums, and hand-dyed silk to create a textural and unique modern bridal bouquet. The non-traditional wedding flowers added a unique and creative spin on wedding design that perfectly fit the industrial space!
The high ceilings and tall windows in the Jupiter ballroom let Oregon winter sunshine pour in to the space, illuminating the blush, mauve, and rose gold tones of the long dining table.
Party Place PDX dressed the long reception table with linens in textural velvet tablecloths that added a rich finish to the minimalist modern glasses and champagne flutes, and the clear acrylic window box centerpiece. Bleached ferns and dried flowers added texture alongside dark burgundy anthuriums, cappuccino roses, and green-veined hellebore.
The tall candles in minimalist gold pillars added to the open minimalist style of the beautiful wedding reception decor!
This minimalist cake by Dreamcakes PDX is a work of art! The frost blue layers and ruffled accent make a stunning statement against the concrete accent wall and modern square cake stand!
