A Modern, Same-Sex Artistic Wedding Inspired by Koi and their Symbolism

We are in awe of this stunning editorial, showcasing artistic wedding details inspired by Asian art and specifically, colorful koi which which symbolize courage, uniqueness and non-conformity, and transformation along with good luck and longevity. This amazing vendor team with A. Griffin Events as the point uses the historical space of Anderson House to highlight diversity, using yellow, red and orange hues of koi to inspire the floral design and decor accents. We can’t help but swoon over the unique classic fashion from striking Anne Barge gowns to Oscar De La Renta earrings, but the magnificent dinner table is wowing us with bold details. The reception table was set with chopsticks and lotus-shaped candleholders, featuring vibrant, overflowing flower centerpieces. Buttercream Bakeshop provides us with some final inspo for this artistic wedding shoot — a dramatic black cake featuring geometric lines and red sugar flowers.
