Watercolor Ceremony Sketch

I’m imaging a ceremony held in an all white studio space with a white aisle runner and backdrop that have been dripped and pooled with aqueous color. Overall the space would be very clean, minimalist, and modern and the bride would float through it in her blush Marchesa gown. :)

Laken, I’d love to see it actually done too!
If I were to make it, I’d probably get a white photographer’s backdrop and a bolt/roll of white fabric that matched closely in color, weight, and weave to the background (so it would dye similarly) to make a runner. Then I’d lay it all out flat and just spill, drip, and splatter all different intensities of watery dilutions of paints in my color palette. I’d make some areas wet first and leave some areas dry. I’d also probably work in layers coming back to add more after things had dried. AND I’d be sure to leave white space.
I think it’d also be important to consider the scale of the project in relation to the scale of your space.
Does that help?

Yeaa! I can totally picture that in my head. Maybe have those clear plastic chairs to give it even more of that modern look!

I recently put my mom in charge of finding a backdrop for my photobooth, and she just happens to be a watercolor painter :) I will suggest that she find a piece of fabric on which to drip and pool aqueous color. Any other suggestions as to how to accomplish the backdrop you are envisioning in this post?

what an unbelievably dreamy idea. if it doesn’t end up happening in real life, then some director has to do it as a movie scene. genius.

Totally up for this idea! I’m in love with the soft tone in your draft, and already dreaming about having a custom dyed gown and a bouquet composed with hydrangea in soft colors…
