Modern + Elegant Black and White Wedding Inspiration

It’s been tried-and-true, a black and white wedding is always classic, elegant, and sophisticated. For the couple who wants to keep it timeless while also paying homage to their modern side, it’s all about adding in a healthy dose of bling and a pop of crimson! A little red goes a long way, and this board has the perfect amount. We adore the pop of red lips, velvet trim around the vintage ring boxes, and place cards for color. Barely-there plum keeps the palette grounded. We’re loving every little detail, but none more so than the adorable pup rocking a bejeweled harness (because, let’s face it, everything is better with furbabies)!

    Sunset-Inspired Bridal Portraits

    There is such grace in today’s gorgeous bridal portrait shoot designed by Alise Taggart. Alexandra Grecco‘s Lya tulle skirt and Esra silk camisole are the perfect shade of apricot, reminiscent of the rich colors of a Charleston sunset. The gossamer fabric is perfectly complemented by blooms from Sweetgrass Events and bronze baubles from Kristen Hayes Jewelry. We are completely enchanted by each and every image from Exquisitrie!

    Classic Backyard Wedding

    Sarah and Teddy’s Michigan backyard wedding is a true family affair! Held at Sarah’s aunt and uncle’s farm in Sawyer, their vision was a garden party feel with rustic elements and a bit of DIY flair. Nearly all of their nearest and dearest helped with the day’s details. Sarah’s younger sister created the stationery, her older sister played during their ceremony, and her father lit the reception tent. Teddy is a cellist and composed the song that played during the bridesmaids’ processional, and his father created beautiful pottery vases for the cocktail tables. Sarah’s mother is a photographer and created photo escort cards, while Teddy’s mother handmade a beautiful quilt for the couple featuring family wedding photos. The couple even created favors of pickled cucumbers and peppers from their garden! Stella Event Design designed arrangements in shades of blush and pink to complement the lush gardens on the property, which not only played host to the festivities of the day but also housed many guests who chose to camp out in “Tent Village”. This day couldn’t be more of a perfect labor of love, and we adore the beautiful way it was captured in the gorgeous images from Jen Lynne Photography!
