Velvet Dream Styled Shoot

From Faith at This Love Weddings

This styled shoot was captured at the historic industrial space turned wedding venue, Machine Shop. We wanted to bring together diverse wedding professionals to display the beauty that the Twin Cities has to offer. Inspired by velvet, we brought in rich colors along with soft and delicate details throughout. Geometric shapes were incorporated to show that no matter the shape or pattern, beauty can be found. The beautiful pink and gold color scheme woven throughout the shoot created effortless sophistication.

Shoot location: Machine Shop, Minneapolis, MN 

Shoot theme: Velvet Dream (inspired by velvet and geometric shapes)

Color combinations: Coral, Dusty Rose, Blush, and Gold

Favorite detail: Can’t help but love the velvet linen for its smooth and soft touch
