What I love most about a black-and-white wedding is its timelessness – it never goes out of style. It offers understated yet polished elegance and glamour that allow the bride and groom to not only give their event a modern twist but also capture the essence of their personalities in the details.
A black-and-white reception’s versatility opens the door to allow me to truly showcase a couple’s personal flair. That can shine through in the use of patterns, shapes or textures, such as a luxe black rosette overlay contrasted against classic black-and-white striped linens.
I also enjoy incorporating contemporary elements within the paper trousseau, choosing fonts and monogram styles that can be featured on chair tags, favor labels, menus and much, much more.
Floral and cake designs offer some of the most remarkable and innovative juxtapositions of black and white; a pure white canvas punctuated with striking black touches. Pure sophistication!
Additionally, a pop of color — whether bright and bold or blush and delicate — gives the classic black-and-white fete a fresh, updated look while infusing a couple’s individuality into their unforgettable celebration.
I find that putting a modern spin on the traditional black-and-white theme provides unlimited possibilities when working with couples to create the wedding of their dreams.
