Gorgeous Outdoor Cypress Grove Estate Wedding by Kristen Weaver Photography

We love this Cypress Grove Estate wedding by Stephanie with Kristen Weaver Photography! The entire wedding exudes elegant black tie style! We love the Orlando estate’s gorgeous grounds, full of trees and a waterfront ceremony site. It’s the perfect setting for this couple’s outdoor wedding! The bride’s style is a beautiful blend of romance and elegance. She wears a stunning Maggie Sottero gown that features an illusion neckline and lace appliqués. The detailing on the back is incredible! An elegant up-do by Luma Bridal and an elegant bouquet by Flowers by Lesley with romantic cascading greens finish her look beautifully. Navy and white details abound in the outdoor reception details, and we love the elegant look it brings – especially with the white floral centerpieces! From beginning to end, you will love the Southern romance of this estate wedding. Enjoy!

Elegant Bellerive Country Club Wedding by Cosmopolitan Events

We love this elegant country club wedding by Cosmopolitan Events! Photographed by Josephine Havlak Photography, the imagery tells us a story of a bride and a well groomed groom with classic style. They were married at Webster Hills UMC with the bride walking down an aisle lined with gorgeous white flowers and cascading greenery. The bride’s column gown exudes an understated elegance, and the neckline detail is brought out beautifully when she stands next to her bridesmaids. It was a rainy day in St. Louis, but that didn’t stop this couple from having the wedding of their dreams. They were even able to enjoy a rainbow over the skies at the Bellerive Country Club, where their elegant reception took place! The joy and love are evident in every smile and stolen glance between this black tie bride and her beloved. Pair that kind of love with gorgeous white wedding reception details – like a classic textured cake by The Cakery and monochromatic floral designs by Ken Miesner’s Flowers – and you have all the makings of a truly classic and elegant wedding. Enjoy!

What We’re Loving: Subtle Pops of Color

We love when color is used well in weddings! A subtle pop of color in wedding details – like the bridal bouquet – is a great way to achieve a look that’s elegant overall. Soft colors can be a great way to achieve subtlety, but you could also use the right placement of your colors to do so. However you choose to go about adding subtle pops of color to your day, it’s a beautiful way to weave the colors you love into your wedding day details.

Elegant Orlando Wedding by Abby Waller Photography

We love this elegant Orlando wedding by Abby Waller Photography! This black tie bride created a wedding day that was rooted in elegant black tie style with pops of glam throughout. We love her Allure Bridals gown! The form-fitting silhouette and beadwork are glamorous touches. When paired with the lace details, the overall look is so elegant! A pair of crystal embellished Betsey Johnson heels and chandelier diamond earrings are perfect compliments to her black tie style. We love that the bridesmaids wore black, floor-length dresses. Such a classic choice! Speaking of classic, the floral arrangements by Orlando Flowers & Orchids throughout this wedding are as classic as they come. We adore the use of white florals and eucalyptus leaves for centerpieces, accent arrangements, and table garlands! With white, gold and black details accenting the space at Reunion Resort Vacation Home, the entire reception is full of elegance and glamour. From beginning to end, this wedding exudes the kind of elegant black tie style we can’t help but love. Enjoy!

Black Tie Bride Moment: A Kiss on the Hand

We love those little gestures… the ones that come throughout the wedding day that show the gentlemanly nature of a well groomed groom. These moments seem small – a kiss on the hand, an arm around the back of her waist, helping her into the car. They’re details that make up the fuller story, one of love, respect and romance.
