We recently partnered with the highly capable and creative Anastasiia Kogan of Kogan Events on a fun, modern wedding in Atlanta. So, when she reached out about her styled shoot at the Meadowlark 1939 wedding venue, I was super excited to create some beautiful stationery. Styled shoots are a great way to showcase wedding ideas in different settings. We always want our clients to feel comfortable and confident in their wedding choices. This styled shoot gives a sneak peek at a modern, minimalist black and white wedding look.
Before we get to everything we did and how it went though, we’d like to start with the couple.
Love is for everyone
Part of the goal of this styled shoot at the Meadowlark 1939 wedding venue was to amplify queer voices, which can often ba marginalized in traditional wedding spaces. This same-sex wedding shoot features two gorgeously handsome grooms, Daras and Rashad, and shows how well wedding spaces, stationery, looks, and designs can work for couples of all kinds.
To say we were overjoyed to be a part of it is an understatement. We believe every kind of love deserves just as much love as any other. So, we’re proud to showcase an inclusive safe space in any way we can.
Now, let’s talk about the venue.
The Meadowlark 1939 Wedding Venue
If we were to describe the Meadowlark 1939 wedding venue in a phrase, we’d call it sophisticated southern charm. The Meadowlark 1939 wedding venue, just outside metro Atlanta, is a beautiful estate with acres of formal gardens, an elegant building for intimate gatherings, pool-side celebrations, and one-hundred-year-old pecan trees that add a natural, refined look to the venue.
It provided plenty of inspiration and a clear design route for us to follow, which leads us into the stationery.
When Anastasiia reached out, she was envisioning some refined, elegant stationery designs, which would go along perfectly with the ambiance of the Meadowlark 1939 wedding venue and the modern but understated shoot. We were inspired by a minimalist, neutral color palette of cool grays and creams, plus the architectural space and historic southern feel of the venue.
With that in mind, we designed the stationery with soft, layered tones and vellum textures to feel right at home with the sophisticated feel of the venue. Zach Barron was the photographer for the shoot, and he captured the timeless quality of it perfectly. I’m obsessed with Zach’s use of lighting in the stationery photographs! We couldn’t have asked for a better way to showcase what we can do.
Psst…If you like the minimalist look, we recommend shopping our Artisan Invitation, the appropriately named Minimalist Invitation, or the Sierra Invitation suites. We also do custom invitations too if you’re looking for something a little different.
Creating minimalist stationery for this styled shoot at the Meadowlark 1939 wedding venue was a such a fun creative opportunity. It’s a joy working with people like Anastasiia, Zach, and all the other vendors who helped put this together.
I know how important it is that your wedding represents you, down to the last detail. Reach out and let me know what you’re looking for! I’d love to hear from you.
