This Black and White Wedding Inspiration is Perfect for the Sophisticated and Romantic Bride With Modern Feminine Style

From Amy, the photographer:

“Host Laurenda and Melissa partnered with many creatives around the Grand Rapids Michigan area to incorporate many romantic and beautiful details. From the lush greens, soft whites, to classic black,  these colors created a sophisticated style with bold, but feminine details, and inspiring designs. The modern and industrial interior were key in balancing the rich blacks, brown wood floors and chairs, and earthy greenery. From the gorgeous tablescape of spring blooms of white tulips, sweat peas, black candles, and glasses. A simple yet beautiful pear escort cards, knotted napkins, and cute little bud vases. No detail was left unnoticed.

The bridal hair inspiration was sweet romance, with a crown braid for the bride, a rope fishtail braid, bridal ponytail and a low bun for the bridesmaids, paired with champagne dresses these girls looked stunning.”
