To kick things off, we want to say that we love how unique and sexy this inspirational shoot is; it is not the traditional “wedding day inspiration” that we often feature! Today’s shoot, on the other hand, focuses on a stylish DC engagement party. This stylish photo shoot excited us because of the fresh design plan, rich purple, gold, and gray color story, and the amazing fashion! The rustic feel of the venue is paired with modern geometric shapes to create a distinctive design. These elements are showcased in the form of the gummy bear bar containers, stationery, and the cake. In addition to the trendy color story, we can’t get over the cake! I mean, come on, how awesome is the triangle pattern with accents of gray and gold?! All of these pieces came together to create the ultimate stylish and sexy engagement party.
Although we are often inspired by a light, airy and bright motif, we can get behind a darker feel. This inspiration shies away from the popular soft tones of blush, cream, and ivory. The lavender, rich purples, and gray create a super cool vibe, and this shoot has got that in spades! I mean, look at the amazing attire on the bride and groom to be! That amazing purple suit showcased on the future groom would steal the show if it wasn’t for the future bride’s stunning crop top and tulle skirt combo! Because of this, we have to admit this is one of our fave attire combos ever! Thank you to Geomyra Lewis Weddings and Events for sharing this dark and on-trend engagement party shoot with us!
