Classic Hotel Monaco DC Wedding by Susie & Becky

This Hotel Monaco DC wedding by Susie & Becky is full of classic black tie style! We love the bride’s wedding style. Her bridal gown features such gorgeous lace from top to bottom and the scalloped lace neckline is a beautiful detail! A thin bridal sash and a stunning cathedral veil complete her look perfectly. The well groomed groom has a completely classic look himself, wearing a sharp black tuxedo and bow tie. Hotel Monaco sets the stage for a stunning wedding reception with its grand columns and tall ceilings. Navy linens and white floral arrangements by Yellow Door as centerpieces give the space a truly elegant look. The three tier wedding cake has beautiful alternating texture and an elegant gold cake topper with the couple’s initials. You will love all of the classic elegance in this couple’s Washington D.C. wedding! Enjoy!

Timeless Colorado Manor House Wedding by Melissa Sue Photography

In the mountains of Colorado, this couple had a timeless manor wedding! Photographed by Melissa Sue Photography, the imagery speaks to the classic tastes of the bride and her well groomed groom. We love the bride’s gown from  The Bridal Collection with its intricate lace, beadwork, and a gorgeous open back. Her romantic chignon hairstyle is the perfect pairing for her gown, especially with her cathedral veil! Beautiful periwinkle blue bridesmaid dresses add to the classic look of the day, and we love the incredible bouquets by Kimball Floral. The abundance of greenery arranged with the cream colored flowers created such an elegant look. And the classic details continue into the wedding reception with more beautiful floral designs as centerpieces and table runner garlands. The wedding cakes by Nothing Bundt Cakes have amazing texture from the icing that falls over the bundt cake in layers. A table full of the classic looking cakes is a perfect touch! We know you’ll love this timeless Colorado wedding as much as we do. Enjoy!

Classic Romance in Alabama Wedding by Allison Nichole Photography

If ever we could describe a wedding as depicting classic romance, it would be this Alabama wedding by Allison Nichole Photography! Everything about this black tie wedding day exudes classic romance, and we can’t get enough! The bride’s style is the best of these characteristics. She wears an off-the-shoulder style lace cap sleeve gown that has a gorgeous skirt and train. It exudes romance! And her soft curls, lace-trimmed bridal veil, and red lipstick all work to round out her classically romantic bridal look. Her bouquet was a DIY affair, and the arrangement of classic roses is lovely. This bride and her well groomed groom shared a classic wedding ceremony at Eastwood Presbyterian Church with a reception that followed. Perhaps our favorite detail in this wedding, though, is the incredible wedding cake by Vickie’s Cakes & Things! It has a vintage look with its lace texture on every tier and beaded accents running from the top of each tier. Soft pink roses and baby’s breath puts the finishing touch on the cake design. With so many classic and romantic details, we know you’ll love this wedding. Enjoy!
