IN THE ROUGH: A NATURAL, MODERN SHOOT INSPIRED BY RAW GEMS AND ROCKS

PHOTOS BY MACKENSEY ALEXANDER PHOTOGRAPHY

BY LAUREN KATHRYN ON MAR 3, 2014 AT 5:00 AM IN MODERN AND BOHEMIAN

Brilliantly imagined by Ivory & Beau, a bridal boutique-slash-event styling studio in Savannah, Georgia, the concept for today’s earthy shoot was sparked by a handmade gown from Brooklyn-based designer Rebecca Schoneveld, whose line is among the thoughtfully handpicked fashions carried by the multifaceted shop that can dress a bride for her wedding and plan it too.

“We knew as soon as we got the gown that we had to use it in a shoot,” said Adrienna McDermott, Ivory & Beau’s co-founder. “The touch of blue under the layer of tulle was so lovely. It occurred to us that raw gems and rocks really complemented the aura of the dress, so we based our shoot around these geologic beauties.” 

With its exposed brick walls, slab concrete floors, and constant hum of creative energy,Dollhouse Productions, a multi-purpose arts and events facility housed in a converted 1940s-era warehouse, provided the perfect space for the shoot. Stones were ingeniously incorporated into every element, from the desserts, sprinkled with rock candy to mimic the look and texture of minerals in their natural state, to the suspended centerpiece, a chandelier made up of dangling tea lights and wire-wrapped rocks; in its sophisticated whimsy, the creation could have easily passed as an art installation. The color palette reflected the variety of specimens used, including powdery-blue celestite, smoky quartz, rose quartz, and amethyst. It was all captured by photographer Mackensey Alexander, whose exquisite images have an intentionally faded tonality that matches the quiet mood of the gems.
