Modern Charcoal Gray and Silver Inspiration Session by Andie Freeman Photography

modern gray wedding invitation suite with block letters

Inspired by the dark color palette and sleek modern style of 50 Shades of Gray, this inspiration session plays with some of this season’s trending details.  From the bride’s gray dress and marsala manicure to the gray, ruffled wedding cake, we love how this group of wedding vendors translated some of our favorite things.  Even the martini cocktails are gray (recipe below)!  Thank you to Andie Freeman Photography for sharing this unique inspiration session with us!

1 1/2 oz of Grey Goose Vodka

1/2 Marie Brizard Parfait d’Amore Liquor

1/4 oz Heavy Cream

1/4 oz Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice

The cocktail should be grey when mixed properly.  But here’s a little hint, the Parfait d’Amore Liquor is quite hard to find.  For a similar taste, you can use Blue Curacao.  This will obviously turn the drink blue.  If you are specifically wanting a grey drink, a touch of black food coloring from the baker’s aisle will do nicely to turn the drink grey.
