Bold Industrial Wedding Inspiration With Russian Folk Details

Whimsical Red and Green Wedding Inspiration with Russian Folk Details – Whim and Willow Photo 6

Looking to add your cultural heritage into your modern-day wedding? This Toronto base team wowed us with their ability to show off a wholly modern industrial space while still featuring delicate, Russian folk details.

We’ve chatted about it before with wedding diversity expert Nova Reid about the creative ways to incorporate your families’ cultures into your wedding while still being ‘you’. From the bold red color to Russian inspired stationery, iconic nesting dolls, delicious baked goods and even carefully styled bridal braids – the talented Toronto team found chic ways to show off the would-be couple’s Russian heritage.

So how did they manage to bring this Russian-inspired affair into the modern age? For one, the dress & attire make a bold, western statement both from our bride’s sexier gown to the groom’s stylish & creative fitted suit. The space itself offers an update on the typical orthodox venue – the inherently modern choice of the industrial Jam Factory is softened by stunning drapery & upscale decor.

Photographed by Whim & Willow, this creative inspiration is a perfect marriage of modern style & nostalgic tradition.

How does an urban couple nod to their roots, while maintaining a modern aesthetic? That was the key inspiration for this Toronto-based team, who started as real-world friends and grew into a collective of wedding photographers, hair stylists, bakers, and florists. They were inspired for this shoot by their multicultural home city, pulling textiles, styling, and baked goods from vibrant and historical Russia.

Wanting to pay homage to their inspiration country while keeping a very Torontonian edge, they started with an open, rustic-industrial event space. They contrasted this trendier, more urban setting with rich fabric draping in lieu of a ceremony arch, and traditional roses in an opulent red. They kept the table settings and bridal styling elegantly minimal, with slight nods to their inspiration by way of nesting dolls and a sleek braided updo. The whole theme is tied together with an all-white cake in an on-trend square shape and whimsical, folk-tale adornments. Their result is a meaningful and Insta-worthy event sure to please every generation.
