Lulu's Black & White Inspiration

I love Black & White together for a Wedding (almost as much as navy blue and latest obsession). Here are some photos that we fell in love with.

Plush sofas and coffee tables were grouped together outside the ballroom to create multiple mini lounges.

Pinspot lighting drew attention to each table’s centerpiece. Hydrangea, garden roses, French lilac, and sweet pea were arranged in crystal square bowls and surrounded by votive candles. Photo courtesy of The Knot labels this as A Castle Wedding in Tarrytown, NY...Could it be the same Castle we got married in?

Jennifer’s seven bridesmaids can actually wear their dresses again! They were allowed to select any style they wanted as long as it was black. Yellow parasols added a pop of color and protected the girls from the very hot sun.

Guests took home black boxes filled with Koufeta—an Italian and Greek traditional wedding candy. Stephanie put the favors together with her mom and 93-year-old Greek grandmother, and sealed each box with a lime green ribbon and sticker with the couple's monogram.

Each bridesmaid donned a black strapless dress and had different bouquets of white blooms. The groomsmen wore pinstripe ties and floral and feather boutonnieres.

Though Alli didn’t change out of 
her Pronovias gown for the reception, she did switch her hairstyle -- and shoes. To match Jeff, she slipped on a pair of white Vans sneakers.

Ashli and her twin sister, Amber, created the black and ivory programs and program pockets. Rock created a personalized sticker for the cover, and they tied them to the guests’ chairs with black satin ribbon.

Peri and Marcus wanted the cake to look like Henna designs and match their stationary. The striking combination of dark brown detailing on rolled white fondant was complimented with red sugar roses on top.

You know we had to save the best for last...the dessert, lol. How gorgeous is this cake. All of these Black & White photos make me wish I chose these colors for my wedding...I see a "Renewing the Vows...Again" in our near future.

Hope these photos inspire some of your special events
