A bold black-and-white color scheme set the scene for the New Children’s Museum nuptials of Ayisha Fryer and Matt Oatman. The stark palette of this San Diego wedding made beautiful details pop, like the henna on the bride’s and bridesmaids’ feet, and the marigold petals tossed by guests after the ceremony (both homages to Ayisha’s Indian heritage). The couple’s fall wedding featured 150 guests, who enjoyed grilled fish, braised beef short ribs, seasonal veggies, and a donut bar for dessert.
Despite the white color palette, the bride’s bouquet was far from traditional. A large protea was the star, softened by peonies and dark berries.The couple wanted nothing to do with “ordinary” wedding design. They wanted to create a modern, clean, and contemporary feel.
Gold-dipped vertical strands representing a celestial night sky were incorporated into the couple’s ceremony installation.
The setting was moody and magical, the perfect blend of whimsy and sophistication.
The couple opted for a cheese “cake” instead of a traditional wedding cake. Clean lines and a black-and-white color scheme added to the event’s modern styling.
