We love the unique venue and the subtle details in today’s lovely styled shoot, brought to us by Amy Huth of Design In Mind Events! Here’s Amy to tell us more:

Since the re-opening in 2014, the Louisville Water Tower has become a wildly popular wedding venue for couples in the Louisville area. While sightseeing in the city, there is no sign of this ornamental water tower — known to be the oldest in the world. In fact, one will drive several miles along tree-lined River Road before witnessing the iconic Greek temple architecture. To honor the 160th year of this famous landmark, “Design In Mind Events” pulled together a team of 19 talented vendors to style a tranquil yet romantic wedding theme around water.

See more after the cut!

The color scheme of blues (cornflower blue, light blue and serenity blue) brought to view the natural beauty of the celebration. During the  summer months in Louisville, the Ohio River serves as a playground where families can be found relaxing on boats or taking long strolls along the sandy banks as they collect sea glass and driftwood. With these items in mind, it made sense to design tall sails as well as incorporate sea glass and driftwood to showcase the water theme.

There were also some subtle visual ties such as the bride’s hairstyle to signify waves of water, a pageant bouquet to represent the doric column of the tower and the off-centered cake to emulate the spiral staircase. Eco-friendly elements also played an important role in this styled shoot. To offset the use of flowers, “Design In Mind Events” incorporated plants and paper water lilies made by Papillon Originals.

The hemp silk bridal gown was designed by Elizabeth Crum of Evenweave Bridal, wedding bands by Naturaleza Organic Jewelry, vintage dishes by The Southern Soiree, furniture by Once BorrowedVintage, cake made with local ingredients by Flour de lis Bakery and last but not least, Louisville Pure Tap — promoting clean tap water versus the purchase of bottled water for any event large or small. The Louisville Water Tower is a true gem in Kentucky’s history and an exceptional event venue to celebrate your own monumental moments in life!
