My parents are coming to visit next week, and I feel like I have so much to do to get ready. Our cleaners had to reschedule on us this week, so it looks like a deep clean is in my near future :( I’m hoping this summer weather starts to break because I.AM.OVER.IT. Charlie is still obsessed with playgroup, and I feel like a whole new person having this time to myself, and apart from him. I’m feeling less burnt out day-to-day, and he’s getting time to socialize with other kids. Its a win-win all around!
The concept for the shoot was a lush, elegant, black and white wedding to show that micro wedding celebrations deserves to be elegant too. We wanted to design an experience to serve as inspiration for the new world of small, but still beautiful, weddings we have come to embrace.
This styled shoot is the reflection of timeless elegance. We picked black, white, and gold to represent elegance, beauty and purity and we believe that these colors are timeless and transcend the boundaries of time. The floral arrangements included a mix of white flowers: hydrangeas, roses, stock, and greenery that were beautifully displayed in the ceremony arch, the bridal suite and filled the reception space, providing a sense of true elegance and purity.
To display an elegant look, we opted for black water glasses, and clear wine and champagne flutes for a classy contrast, and black napkins wrapping white plates to create a romantic ambiance. The gold details elevated our tablescape, with gold candelabras adorned with greenery and tapered candles, gold foil accents on our menus cards with a sparkly brooch to add texture and make a statement, and gold flatware to add some sophistication. The black, white, and gold cake added a bold style that is both luxurious and modern.
