Gorgeous Black Tie Wedding with Handmade Details From Erin Nicastro

What better way to head into the weekend than with one jaw droppingly beautiful black tie wedding! Think a DIY wedding can’t bring the elegance and glamour of a black tie affair? The handmade gorgeousness of Jessica and Caleb’s big day will make you a believer! Jessica drew inspiration for her decor from wedding blogs and Pinterest to put together one of the most gorgeous DIY weddings I’ve ever seen. Her bridesmaids looked nearly as radiant as our gorgeous bride in their floor length blush gowns – while the Maid of Honor stood out in lilac!

Not to be outdone, the gentlemen rocked black vests with – what else – black tie! Caleb’s suit was accented with a pink rosebud boutonniere made just for him by his bride. Jessica sent him the roses with a bottle of whiskey and a note – what better way to start their wedding day! They said their vows on the grounds of Raritan Inn Bed and Breakfast in a gorgeously rural part of New Jersey. The B&B offered a classic, old-world charm perfectly suited to Jessica and Caleb’s classic style. Their photographer Erin Nicastro made gorgeous use of the beautiful gardens and creeks surrounding the inn for their incredible bridal portraits!
