Sleek lines, contemporary finishes, and modern art adorns the setting of this city-chic editorial. Hosted at Hall Arts Hotel in downtown Dallas, this shoot offered beautiful and unique inspiration for engaged couples looking to pair traditional elements and modern touches.
Hall Arts Hotel is located central downtown, tucked away with the best of the best when it comes to the Dallas art scene. Steps away from The Meyerson, the Winspear Opera House, and the DMA, it’s the perfect spot for anyone who needs to feed their creative side. With it’s sleek exterior and bright entry, the lobby boasts an open and bright feel, shimmering with glass accents and a parade of red and pink tambourines dancing above the entry.
The design of the shoot, by MK Event Boutique, was based on chic city upscale vibes merged with the artful inspiration of the hotel. The painting behind the tablescape was brought to life featuring light pink and white-hued florals by Event Stems Floral, lush, overflowing greenery, and striking black and gold accents provided by Posh Couture Rentals. The velvet textures enhanced the contemporary feel, and gave a light refresh to the traditionally winter textile.
The featured bridal gown by Bridal Boutique Lewisville donned a traditional silhouette with modern flair! From the sleek-meets-ballgown (and detachable sleeves!) to the pearl-accented veil, this is the perfect look for someone looking to infuse new life into a traditional look. This bridal inspiration was completed with a soft glam look, crafted expertly by Grand Slam Glam, and was the perfect pair for an elegant and chic hair and makeup combo.
The cake, design by Sugar Bee Sweets, was an excellent choice for couples looking to go simple and understated, but still carry their design through the cake details! The cake’s floral nest provided an eye-catching base for the understated cake, and shared the contemporary-yet-classic look of the bridalwear.
If you’re a spring or summer couple looking to pair your love of the arts with a modern-meets-classic design, take this inpo and run with it!
