FRIDAY'S FROM ROOM TO WEDDING

I found this stunning, sophisticated room while perusing through Gilt, where they were holding a Shine by S.H.O sale. I love a black and white color palette, and the pops of gray and gold here are perfect.

Enter the corresponding black tie wedding. I dressed all the ladies in Vera Wang, and chose 2 different bridal party dresses - a gray gown for the bridesmaids and a black gown with the same ripple effect as the curtains for the maid of honor, so that she stands out - both with black sashes, similar to the one on the bride's white statement maker. The flowers are simple and white - anemones for the bouquets and boutonnieres, and hydrangeas for the escort card table, which also displays a tall clear vase filled with gold pebbles, and gold and white name cards in small envelopes for the guests.


This wedding takes place in a huge, round, almost theater-like ballroom with wrap-around windows and tons of candlelight. The cake is designed with black and white stripes with some gentle flowers to balance the harsh lines. The place settings feature gold rimmed chargers and black menu cards, while the gold glittery shoes peek out from the brides' gown as she twirls the night away on the dance floor.
