Black, White & Chic All Over Wedding

Today’s Black, White & Chic All Over Wedding is dripping with gorgeousness! Almost instantly after meeting Jen for the first time, I knew we were going to become great friends. And indeed, this girl was after my heart! From fashion to home design and everything in between, we still joke that we are sisters from another mister.

To begin, Jen and Damon envisioned a chic, modern wedding infused with a touch of glamour.  So, naturally the Radisson BLU – MOA was the perfect choice to host this modern fete.  We chose a clean and modern color palette of black and white, while incorporating lots of textures and personalized elements to reflect Jen and Damon’s style and taste. Behold their stunning Black, White & Chic All Over Wedding.

Jen looked positively glamorous wearing a fitted mermaid gown with intricate lace detail and a sash heavily encrusted with crystals. Her strappy wedding heels were bedecked with crystals to compliment her jeweled belt. A beautiful hand-tied bouquet consisting of snowy hydrangea, ranunculus and delicate anemones made for the perfect accessory.  Half-up, long, wavy locks paired with a cathedral length veil completed the stunning vision.

Their black & white wedding stationery suite was a mix of modern with a stylish bold touch.

For the boutonniers a single anemone and a sprig of greenery were delicately wrapped in silk ribbon.

How’s this for heart melting, prior to seeing each other for the first time, Jen and Damon wanted to read their personal vows to one another and share a few quite moments together before the festivities began.

For the ceremony, tall glass cylinder vases with floating candles and ivory rose petals lined the aisle.  Graceful white drapery up-lit in a soft champagne tone created a stunning backdrop, and two lush floral arrangements flanked Jen and Damon as they exchange their vows.

The reception channeled a modern, chic vibe with colors of black and white, and pops of silver throughout.  Guest tables were draped in textured white linens topped with black napkins, and centerpieces featured two alternating designs of low, lush white blooms in black footed vases, or a combination of pillar candles and bud vases with single white blooms.

In contrast, the Head Table was all about the drama!  In addition to the elegant white leather tufted opera chairs that surrounded the table, Jen and Damon were nestled in their very own dramatic white dome loveseat.  A glamorous black sequin taffeta linen draped the table while two soaring and decadent floral arrangements cascaded down the vases and spilled onto the table itself.  Low arrangements consisted of bunches of florals grouped by variety – hydrangea, roses, tulips, and ranunculus – resting in silver vases of deferring heights and textures. For extra ambience, candles were woven throught the centerpieces giving each table a romantic glow.

Classic silver beaded chargers displayed white silk napkins with modern menus tucked inside.  Cut crystal stemware added the perfect bit of sparkle to the landscape and custom laser-cut names perched atop napkins acted as the perfect take-away from this chic affair.

Making her second grand entrance in another sleek mermaid gown with delicate lace appliques, Jen signaled to her groom that it was time to sample the mouth-watering dessert bar.  Modern white cake pedestals set atop a glamorous black sequin linen allowed the dessert assortment to shine.  Everything from Key Lime shooters to Blackberry French Macarons and Banana Mini Cupcakes; there was not one piece of dessert left at the end of the night.
