In the Mood for Modern at Ashton Hill Farm | Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Modern and playful. Light and dark. Moody and Clean. This inspiration shoot was all about playing with contrast, and how different styles of design elements can combine to create a beautiful and cohesive look for your wedding!

Many couples feel compelled to base their color palette on the season of their wedding. But don't think that just because you're getting married during a certain season that you must follow the norms for color. This shoot, which took place in April, is a prime example! Base your wedding on what you love, rather than what you feel pressured to do.

The rich color palette of whisper pinks and dusky plums were oh-so-rich against the crisp white walls and clean lines at Ashton Hill Farm. Playful swiss dot linens created a lighthearted and playful look and added a fun twist to the modern elegance of the table settings and floral centerpiece.

The flowers were a spring bounty of lush blooms. Peonies, roses, ranunculus, fragrant blooming jasmine, local flowering branches, and plum foliage were the stars of the show.
