This gorgeous black wedding cake knows how to set the mood

Lovers of black and white weddings, this gorgeous shoot as you covered! The combination of white tie style with contemporary black details is perfection for a timeless wedding, showcased perfectly by this breathtaking stationery suite by Fielding Milligan – subtle geometric details and luxurious black velvet ribbon are all that’s needed to create a magical invitation flatlay.

Blue Velvet Vintage Chair for the Bridal Bouquet

A little pop of blue velvet and vintage style gives these wedding photos luxurious texture, while acrylic wedding signs, barely there blooming spring branch installations, and a crisp white suit for the groom with black piping to create the perfect detail!

With an airy feeling as the ultimate goal for this shoot, Coordination Company and Rosebay Floral Co. kept the color palette to soft whites and hints of black for contrast. White brick walls, a silk taffeta wedding dress from Modern Trousseau Charleston, and a soft white bridal bouquet balanced stunning textures with ethereal hues that popped in these lovely wedding photos by Alexis Lunsford Photography.

Minimal Wedding Ceremony with Stunning Style

Looking for the perfect minimal wedding ceremony decor – light and airy, yet with a gorgeous impact in your photos? This cloud-like gypsophilia installation added a gorgeous textural element against the industrial brick walls of the wedding ceremony backdrop! Baby’s breath is still a favorite element to design with for modern weddings, creating a stunning silhouette for incredible photo moments!

The wedding couple took portraits around The Arbor Room in downtown Charleston, SC. The former lumberyard became a thriving industrial event space with a mix of raw materials from its original incarnation and updated elements designed to appeal to couples!

The ikebana-style centerpieces added dramatic height to the tabletop while keeping with the Konmari-inspired minimalism of the décor. White sweetpeas, anemones, and chocolate cosmos were the perfect choices for black and white centerpieces, creating sculptural arrangements alongside black pottery place settings. The elegant taupe tablecloths contrasted with the industrial white metal chairs for a stunning justxaposition!

Budding branches were a perfect way to bring in the beauty of early spring! Rosebay Floral Co. tucked these delicate blossoms into white pottery bud vases and black planters to create a beautiful texture with the first hints of spring. A hand lettered canvas backdrop was a beautiful way to add sweet detail without taking away from the light and airy minimalist style.
