Black… and White

There is nothing that I hate more than tacky black and white weddings. And this is coming from a lover of all black colored items. {I did, for a time have a black bedspread, and was proud of it.} But when it comes to weddings, black and white must never be tacky, elegance is the only {I repeat} only direction to go with this palette. And with that, I present my take on the ultimate black and white wedding accessories/ideas/thoughts in pictures.

Styled Shoot at Bread and Chocolate

I was completely swooning over this style shoot by Sj2 Photography when I first saw it and just knew I had to have it here on OTW. Set at Bread and Chocolate this {real} couple got dressed up for a perfect shoot filled with pretty details and lots of love.

From Sj2 Photography: It was a pleasure to work with a past wedding couple of mine to create these beautiful images. They were so amazing to work with. The bride, Rachel, brought her beautiful lace wedding dress. I created the delicate flower crown to add a little extra to her look. I found the tulips at a local grocery store and I love the simplicity of just draping it over her arm instead of creating a bouquet. I found the sequins fabric cover at a fabric store and created a table cover for our shoot. I feel like the gold sequins made the cake and the colors of the flowers pop. And of course the brick background added the perfect backdrop. These are perfect ideas for indoor weddings receptions and ceremony.

For the Flower Girl…

Oh, hello adorable flower girl! Don’t have one? Think after you see this picture you may want one. While we may not all have a delightful little niece or friend’s child on hand to be the flower girl in our wedding, wouldn’t it be nice if we did? I felt like my summer Friday was complete only after seeing this pic… hope you agree!

Trend Alert: Floral Crowns

We are long overdue for some accessory inspiration and for May, I couldn’t think of anything better than the floral crown {or halo}…

Historically, we may not see it as often as, say, the traditional veil or even the birdcage veil but that’s what makes it even more special! Perfect for a Spring wedding, an outdoor affair, or better yet, a garden ceremony, a floral crown can serve as that rustic, earthy, elegant or just unique accessory that you {the bride} or maybe even the flower girl (sixth photo below) can pull off magically!
