Adding neon is a bold idea for a wedding, it’s perfect for summer and spring nuptials. Neon isn’t the easiest of themes to pull off at a wedding: overdone and it can look tacky, under done and it can look a bit sad but when it’s done just right, it is a unforgettable. How can you add it with style and avoid these mistakes?
Today’s inspiration is another of those fun and colorful shoots that will show you how to do that. Fine art photographer Christa O’Brien decided to show how to pull off the brights with neon sharing this gorgeous couple’s wedding. For the wedding venue, they chose an industrial space with clean lines and a classic black-and-white palette that allows the couple to showcase their fun side through creative (and bright!) design elements. They are sophisticated, but they want to push the envelope of conventional tastes.
They are bringing a West Coast vibe to East Coast avant-garde, and they enjoy a mix of vintage chic with the culture of now. In planning their wedding, it was essential that their personalities – rather than typical wedding trends – be evident in every detail. For them, love is playful and fun.
It is easy for any real couple to take a modern and relatively empty venue and fill it with neon pops of color from the florals, to shoes and socks, to their jewelry! Black and white makes a perfect palette base for any neon color, so make it yours. Neon is sure to stand out, so break out the glow sticks, bright jewelry, and keep it funky!
