We often associate pastels with baby showers, cotton candy, Easter eggs, or those melt in your mouth mints at the end of the dessert table. Pastels for a wedding color palette aren’t usually top of mind, however, this particular creative collaboration at Cleveland’s Gordon Green makes a fabulous case for painting the town in pistachio, lavender, apricot, and of course, blush!
Gordon Green is a modern, industrial event space in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood of Cleveland’s west side. Floor to ceiling windows invite floods of natural light which catches the subtle textures and designs in the brick walls and the ornate tin ceiling which has been referred to as the “crown jewel” of the building. The interior is a modern and airy blank slate with clean lines and thoughtful design making it the perfect choice for a wedding celebration.
Gordon Green is both contemporary and charming. Its features lent character and contrast to the velvet upholstered furnishings from Lavender and Lace Rentals, the soft linens from L’nique Linens, and the warm candle light from lavender taper candles. Andrew Thomas Designs created incredible floral arrangements using every variation on powder blue, apricot, blush, and lemon. Stunning bouquets, centerpieces, and installations of blue delphinium, lavender roses, coral ranunculus, bright green mosses, and spring cherry were absolute eye candy.
THE HEAVENLY DRESS
Now, let’s talk about the dress! Heavenly, from Toronto based designer Lea Ann Belter was our girl! Heavenly is a sublime wedding dress with a whimsical twist – perfect for a modern meets sweet celebration – and it comes in blush!
Heavenly’s full taffeta skirt seems to float when in mid twirl then pools beautifully into a sweep train. The ruched bodice features a flattering sweetheart neckline which can easily be styled with a simple strand of pearls or a faux fur or velvet stole. We love this bride’s simple, elegant earrings and absolutely gorgeous braid which paired beautifully with her long veil from our collection. One of our favorite features of Heavenly is the pockets!
