It’s been several months, but my love for this couple and their mid century modern wedding hasn’t left my mind since the day they said I do on April 6, 2019.
Lindsay and Dan had their wedding day vision from day one. It started when they purchased their private mid century modern home in Shreveport, Louisiana, which was built in 1956. Their home quickly set the tone for the entire wedding weekend with its original features, wooden accents, clean lines and modern layout. Other elements that we incorporated throughout the wedding were vast ranges of color including pops of orange and royal blue in the floral design, antique barware and toasting glasses along with non traditional textures and furnishings, which were displayed around the dessert bar and throughout the house.
On the wedding day, Lindsay’s father presented her with her wedding jewelry that he bought in Saudi Arabia when Lindsay was only three years old. He kept it a secret for 24 years. When Lindsay started looking for her wedding dress, her father surprised her with the special and precious gift, which she will cherish for a lifetime.
As an artist, Lindsay’s creative juices captured me from the beginning. Lindsay had constant ideas on how to set her wedding apart and I was on board from the get go. She was sure to adorn every outfit with a vintage purse. She had a plethora of mid century modern cake stands to choose from and her guest favors were hand painted by her and her bridesmaids to reflect abstract art. There was always something wonderful to marvel at.
Take a look at all of the elements as you take a step back in time and into this couples love for art and design. What a dream day!
