When Denver’s newest wedding and events venue asks you to do their very first styled shoot you absolutely have to say yes! Moss Denver is a beautiful, industrial new space around the corner from the Santa Fe Arts District. During the day the large windows flood the venue with natural light and at night the room is filled with romantic ambiance with a dozen or more crystal chandeliers! I was lucky enough to see the space during construction and can attest to how much hard work the Moss team has put into making the space ready for 2016 weddings and events. If you’re planning an industrial wedding (or party) this venue should definitely check it out!
I’m proud to share that this photo shoot was featured on CoutureColorado Weddings yesterday!
For this inspiration shoot we really wanted the venue to be the main star so we mixed some simple, romantic details into the already established industrial vibe of the space.
Stationery Design Process
For this wedding invitation suite I decided to stick to a monochromatic grey palette with simple design embellishments. I mixed some playful brush lettering with a modern serif font and hand drawn botanical accents. My absolute favorite part of the suite was the illustrated map of Denver with exaggerated landmarks and, of course, a fun chandelier to represent Moss!
Hand Lettered Signage
What wedding is complete without a little signage? The first piece I hand-lettered was this vintage white mirror with first dance song lyrics (Ed Sheeran “Thinking Out Loud” woot woot!). The second piece was a vintage window turned seating chart. Both pieces really accented the industrial wedding space because of their age and detail but white framed signage is always so neutral it could fit in almost anywhere!
My favorite detail was the calligraphy leaf place cards. It was my first time doing calligraphy on leaves and it was so much fun (difficult, but fun)! I’m excited to try it out with different types of leaves (these were just from my backyard) and would love to adorn some beautifully colored fall leaves come autumn!
