The historic Melrose Mansion in New Orleans added a backdrop of Victorian glamour to a shoot that celebrates distinctly modern style. From the bride’s sleek Amsale sheath dress with an open illusion back and flirty peplum to her dramatic ballerina a bun, every shot showcases gorgeously styled details. Black ankle bow heels and a striped ribbon accenting the lush bouquet add a hint of classic Southern preppy to the proceedings. The groom’s black on black paisley tie and fresh berry boutonniere echo the luxuriously modern styling inherent in every frame.

The crisp black and berry palette makes a dramatic statement against the marble hall with soaring windows, especially when it comes to the modern Head Table. A glass tabletop resting on black sawhorses sets the tone for a thoroughly modern reception, accented with clear ghost chairs adorned with fresh flowers and ferns. A deconstructed centerpiece takes center stage, with clear bud vases lining the table to create a modern floral runner. Black taper candles add gorgeous height and drama which each place setting boasts a patterned gold napkin and a personalized place card on rich plum paper.
