Gray and Illuminating Wedding Ideas with Chic Dried Flowers

Looking for inspiration for Pantone Colors of the Year? This Ultimate Gray and Illuminating wedding shoot manages to bring out the best of both, with an urban industrial wedding venue in the heart of Portland, and luminous non-traditional wedding flower arrangements with dried grasses, preserved flowers, and airy details. The gorgeous fine art film work of Kallie Dawn Photography and creative team of  Indigo Event Design and Wildflower Portland offered the perfect inspiration for a unique wedding day filled with romantic details and a little bit of edge!

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.

Industrial Wedding Ceremony with Airy Dried Flower Installations and Pantone Colors of the Year Ultimate Gray and Illuminating for a Soft Glow

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.
