Timeless Four Seasons Baltimore Wedding by Angela Newton Roy Photography

 This Four Seasons Baltimore wedding by Angela Newton Roy Photography is so timeless! Every detail exudes the kind of black tie style that we adore! The bride is a vision in her Maggie Sottero gown, which features stunning beaded cap sleeves and a deep v-back. An elegant chignon by Behind the Veil is the perfect match to the rest of her wedding style, and we love the timelessness it lends. But the bridal style isn’t the only timeless piece of this wedding! Everything from the stationery design from Smock Paper to the well groomed groom’s custom Bonobos tuxedo to the silver, grey and white reception details simply exudes it. We especially love the custom compasses tied to elegant escort cards. They provide an elegant nautical flair, fitting for the waterfront venue overlooking Baltimore Harbor! Enjoy!

What We’re Loving: Geometric Escort Cards

Escort cards have the important task of directing each guest to the proper table, but they are also another chance to connect with your black tie wedding style! We love the idea of an elegant, geometric escort card. Gold hand-lettering gives the guest name and table number on the stunning, white hexagon tile pictured below, and is a beautiful way to bring this idea of a geometric card to life while keeping within an elegant black tie style.

Elegant Farmington Club Wedding by Trish Kemp

This elegant wedding by Trish Kemp is the very picture of a classic black tie wedding! We adore the timelessness we see throughout the imagery. A Sottero and Midgley bridal gown with lace detailing and delicate beadwork sets the tone for a classically romantic bridal look. Paired with a cathedral veil, a red lip and an elegant up-do, this black tie bride exudes classic style! The blush bridesmaid gowns only add to the classic look of the day, and the lace illusion necklines tie in the romantic feeling well. We love that the mother of the bride was the one to walk the bride down the aisle, while her late father was remembered with a special charm on the bouquet of white roses. The Catholic ceremony was so classic, as was their The Farmington Club reception! We love the tall floral centerpieces and artfully draped linens. Perhaps the loveliest piece at the reception, though, is the five-tier wedding cake by Anna Parzych Cakes. Each tier is lined with an elegant beaded design, and the gorgeous floral pieces appear both as a cake topper and a cascading accent. We know you’ll love this classic wedding as much as we do! Enjoy!

What We’re Loving: Dessert Table Treats

While a wedding cake is the most traditional way to have dessert at your wedding, we’re loving when black tie brides include a dessert table with meaningful treats! We love the idea of making the dessert at your wedding something truly special to you and your well groomed groom. Maybe it’s French Macarons and to give a nod to the honeymoon you’re taking to Paris. Maybe it’s Grandma’s classic apple pie that you have at each special family event. It could be the dessert you shared on your first date, the iconic treat of your hometown, or simply sweets that you and your groom love most! Whatever tempting treats you decide to incorporate, a dessert table can be a wonderful way to add even more personal touches to your black tie wedding!

Classic Old-World Elegance Bridal Inspiration by Beth Joy Photography

We are swooning over this bridal inspiration shoot sent to us by Bethany and John Tibble with Beth Joy Photography! The old-world elegance and classically romantic style is so stunning! A historic mansion in Detroit, built in the 1920s, sets the stage for this incredible bridal look, inspired by both the 20th century and the mansion itself. The home’s grand staircase and gorgeous chandeliers add to the luxurious feeling of the wedding style, while soft, muted colors like blush, sage, and lilac pair with gold and ivory to add romance to the rich look. With a gorgeous mansion, incredible floral designs, and such a dreamy vintage bridal look, you will be just as smitten with this old-world elegance as we are. Enjoy!
