Black Tie and Winter Whites

I have been holding onto this shoot for over a year and I am excited to finally share the entire thing today!  It was worth the wait!  Last week, I shared that it was published on A Low Country Wedding, a publication which I love dearly!  You got a great big sneak peek of it there, but today I wanted to share more! 🙂


I confess my love for black tie weddings over and over again.  This wedding inspiration is a black tie masterpiece.  The concept was Black tie paired with Winter whites and it showcases everything I love about this classic color palette. We know a lot of brides are leaning towards more intimate type weddings in 2021 thanks to the COVID crisis this year and this inspiration shoot will show you can still have a STUNNING wedding day on a small scale.  Our small scale wedding clients can add more attention to details and honor each special guest with place settings and even cocktail glasses adorned with their names in calligraphy or a heartfelt gift to go as a favor.  Smaller scale weddings give you a bigger budget for things you love like FLORALS!  You can go all out on your gorgeous ceremony backdrop and head table!  Want a beautiful getaway car- you can totally still have it!  And just because your wedding day is more intentional doesn’t mean you can’t switch up your bridal look!  Our bride added so much to her dress by adding a cape and veil at different portions of the day!    This gorgeous black and white design also show that the classic high contrast palette never goes out of style!  We love how the simplicity of the colors really allowed the florals to shine and the couple to pop from each photo!
