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!

Glamorous Charlotte Wedding by Cheyenne Schultz Photography

Elegance and glamour collide in this Charlotte wedding by Cheyenne Schultz Photography! We love the bride’s style! She seamlessly mixes glamorous details into her bridal look with the crystal embellished neckline and waist of her gown and a pair of statement earrings. A pair of Manolo Blahnik heels account for her “something blue,” and a glamorous something blue at that! With a satin gown and elegant up-do, this black tie bride’s wedding day look is flawless! And the stunning Foundation for the Carolinas was a beautiful backdrop for this black tie wedding ceremony and reception. There is so much elegance and love in the imagery! Enjoy!

What We’re Loving: The Detailed Bridal Gown

We love to see a detailed bridal gown! Whether its one with a textured skirt that sparks a sense of drama or one with delicate, romantic lace, these details help to shape the overall bridal look. A detailed gown has many possible looks – intricately beaded or accented in lace; a full skirt, an illusion neckline or an open back. Whatever the style, a detailed bridal gown that fits the personal tastes of the black tie bride wearing it is a beautiful thing!

Classic Country Club of Virginia Wedding by Don Mears Photography

Everything about this Virginia country club wedding by Don Mears Photography exudes classic black tie style! We love the bride’s Amsale gown, featuring lace details, an illusion neckline and classic button-up back. Her bridesmaids wear soft, powder blue gowns with a sophisticated one-shoulder neckline, while the well groomed groom and his groomsmen sport classic black suits and matching black bow ties. And the wedding party isn’t the only classic piece of the day! Beautiful bouquets by Southern Blooms use color and texture to create a feeling of classic romance. The Country Club of Virginia offers a gorgeous ballroom with elegant chandeliers for the reception, perfect for this black tie bride’s first dance with her groom! Enjoy!
