We welcomed the VCU Institute of Contemporary Art to Richmond’s latest event venue by joining this rockstar team of vendors for a styled shoot! Pulled together and styled by Heather Clarke with The Hive Wedding Collective, captured by Alex Tenser Photography, gorgeous florals by Amanda Burnette, gowns by Urban Set Bride, & One For the Road cocktail & more! Enjoy these images below highlighting the new event space!

Beautiful natural light highlighting the Dark Wood Server serving as a mini refreshment table.


The Thonet Chairs as ceremony seating with the Gold Trimmed Free Standing Acrylic as a ceremony backdrop with floral grass clusters by Amanda Burnette Floral Design.

To highlight a head table for the reception, we used the White Carved Leg Dining Table paired with the Thonet Chairs on one side and a eight foot pine bench with white faux sheepskin topper on the other. We love how the dramatic colors of the florals and napkins pops against the white of the table and the dark colors of the chairs!

For an interactive bar tended by our friends, One For The Road, the Shadowbox Bar with a brightly colored linen inside frame along with the White Columns worked perfectly in the industrial space! To check out more ways to use these customizable bars, check out this post here!

We love utilized The oversized White Bar Columns to create different shapes with our bars, check out more uses for these architectural pieces here!

You know where #PandJ is, a lounge area is somewhere! Heather wanted a modern vibe with a pops of tropical colors so the soft seating for this space consisted of  the Malibu Sectional paired with the pair of Dexters with Black Velvet Pillows and Round Gold & Glass Coffee Table and Brass & Glass Bar Cart.
