Radius Church Styled Wedding Shoot

Radius Church Styled Wedding Shoot. Inspiration can come from anywhere. This shoot was dreamed up by a simple sampling of olive green velvet. The luxurious and rich fabric, with its stirring color, lead designers to an old midcentury church. Its peeling paint and abandoned, time-worn façade only added to the beautiful and ceremonial spirit. Nature’s neutral is green; therefore, an invitation suite featuring white and black pair perfectly with the shoot’s statement hue. Shabby chic details like casually arranged bouquets and faux fur rugs are just a few of the unique and clever additions brought into the space.

The church has so many superb locations from which to shoot. The bride is seen in front of a gorgeous wrought-iron fence with the church’s grand brick exterior in the background.

A simple wooden reception table with contemporary-styled chairs is set in the courtyard.

White and gold dinnerware and gold-rimmed glasses dress up the table’s appearance alongside gold candlesticks and unusually tall white tapers.

From the shadows of the church’s archways to the front doors, the blonde-haired beauty is radiant in front of the neutral backgrounds.

A sweet note to end on includes green-frosted cakes. These three desserts, each set on a different cake stand, has a light green appearance with sugar-dusted berries on top.

It’s amazing and moving to see how one piece of velvet can lead to a creative and stylish affair. The olive color and accompanying décor created an experience enveloped in midcentury charm, a look we're certain to see much more of in weddings to come.
