A Hip & Edgy Downtown Art Scene Wedding Inspiration Shoot

Today’s next feature is a hip and edgy styled wedding inspiration shoot inspired by San Antonio’s downtown art scene sent in by Rekeisha Dunlap of 3-Design Photography. She calls it “The Hypster and the Square” and she imagines this event to be “sprinkled with personal art, strange flea market finds, recycled items and muted colors”.

I asked Rekeisha about how she came up with the concept for this styled shoot:

I like mashing opposite elements together and making a harmony out of it so my original idea came from the phrase “it is hip to be square” which I melded into the “Hypster and the Square”. The woman is on the fringe of society, being a free artist type, and she meets a man who is  in the mainstream of society. He’s up on all the new trends, she could care less but they fall in love. I started to look on Pintrest at different images that fit my theme and collected them to help form my ideas. (Here is the link to the board) That was the idea but I couldn’t find a male model so it became mostly about her and what she would have at her own wedding. That is why there is the mostly artistic leaning and found objects in the shoot.

I so love the eclectic mix of upcycled found objects with the elegant flatware!

And how about this mix of flowers — aren’t they gorgeous?! Floral designer Clementine shared that she used Scabiosa, Dahlias, Dusty Miller, Silver Brunia, Dried Lavender, Echeveria, Seeded Eucalyptus, Queen Anne’s Lace and wild grapes.

Wild and whimsical,  these varieties reflect the free spirit of the hipster bride. Queen anne’s lace and soft frilly dahlias show her softer side juxtaposed with the  funky, artsy textures of the succulents and silver brunia. Re-purposed tin cans make for unexpected, eco-conscious vases.

I love the bride’s styling too — again, the contrast between antique/vintage finds and the sophisticated bridal gown makes for interesting texture.
