Behind The Inspiration From Photographer Mallory McClure- This shoot came to me as we entered the winter season. As a light and airy hybrid photographer I love photographing whites, neutrals, golds, greens, and pinks. However, with winter weddings we tend to see a lot of heavier colors and winter florals. I wanted to showcase how to style a winter wedding, but still remain light and bright. I also creatively wanted to push myself and photograph the entire shoot in 35mm film.
I was blessed to bring together a fantastic team that trusted my vision and made it come true. I went for a white, bright indoor space that not only photographed like a dream but had history to it. Reading Art Works is an old railroad tie-making factory that has since been turned into an art gallery and venue. The history-loving, repurposing part of my soul was in love.
I also wanted it to have a relaxed and romantic bohemian feel to it with a bit of a minimalistic approach. Within the table setting, I opted for pampas grass installed in a modern way and I added soft touches of draped fabric accented with golds and pinks. The ceremony set included ghost chairs for simplicity matched with a custom-made wooden diamond backdrop and soft white faux fur rug. The lounge space included romantic pieces of furniture paired with gold tables and a leather ottoman.
Add in a stunning cake sitting on a gold stand straight out of the ’70s, a true couple, and an officiant who performed a mock hand fasting ceremony and the vision had truly come to life.
