"John [Lennon] and Yoko [Ono] met at an art opening in London in 1966 where Yoko's piece "Hammer A Nail" was on display. Yoko refused to let John hammer in a nail because the show wasn't officially opening till the next day. They began their love affair quickly after their meeting and were married in 1969. Their romance spawned numerous love songs, and they became famous for their peace activism, including their public love-in. One of their more eccentric albums together was titled "Milk + Honey". Our color palette is directly influenced by a "peaceful milk + honey" serenity mixed with artistic urbanity. John and Yoko epitomized the ideal abudant love of life, music, art, community, and progressive sophistication which plays into the textures and ideas behind this weeding shoot. Our bride is looking for an eclectic, yet sophisticated take on artistic ingenuity and proper individuality when showcasing her wedding style." -Kelly [of Yes Please Design]
Sounds like they hit the nail on the head with this design, am I right?! Eh? (Yes, all pun intended!)
I think even if you don't take this full-steam-ahead approach to life and art for your big day, I think swapping some of the bolder pieces for more understated bits like a back hanging of fabric, streamers, and even tissue paper, could bring you the same feeling and experience. You could opt to spray paint the bottles a pastel color (like we had in our last home!) or any color that compliments your color palette. I just really really love how they designed it around that. I love it! (See the original post with all vendor and designer credits here.)
What's your take on gold on a wedding day? Is it always tacky or is it a refined elegance?
