Moody Pastels Styled Shoot | Post at River East Wedding Venue Fort Worth TX

     I am sooooo dang excited to finally share this “Moody Pastels” styled shoot with ya’ll!  It was even recently featured on Wedding Sparrow, and you can see it here!

    Lately, I have been inspired by moody themes, but wanted to evoke that same overall feeling in a shoot by using pastels and unique textures instead of dark color tones.    The venue’s textured walls, outdoor setting, and beautiful combination of dusty and pastel colors were the perfect backdrop and setting for this “Moody Pastels” styled shoot. Every wall was uniquely different and helped create the perfect transition from one scene to the next.


    During the ceremony, the bride and groom stood in front of a large hand-painted backdrop with lush organic greenery mixed with florals at its top and bottom.  Ghost Chairs filled the rows and helped the focus be on the couple and the unique venue, and was the perfect modern & romantic touch to the ceremony scene.  As the bride and groom exited the ceremony, they took a few minutes to savor the moment before heading to the reception.  I love the way her dress “flowed” from one scene to the next!


   The reception tablescape was filled with dusty colored florals, large white pillar candles, a gray, raw silk runner, and white china.  The gray farm table allowed the table décor to be the focus, while also being the perfect neutral color for this moody pastel theme.  I wanted for the majority of the candles on the table to be pillar candles instead of tapered because it created a more “moody” feel, and the raw silk runner was the perfect romantic touch.  As we transitioned to the end of the night, the cake was the perfect ending!  It was placed on an acrylic table with dusty rose fabric and tall tapered candles.  The metallic and marble like the texture. at the bottom layer of the cake, coordinated with the venue’s textured walls perfectly.  The couple is shown soaking in the last few moments of the night sitting at the table, and walking out of the reception with excitement for what the future holds!
