Black Tie Styled Shoot

December 10, 2020

From the outdoor ceremony set up to the indoor reception, this styled shoot was black tie approved. Upstairs in the Sunburst Suite, the bride slipped into her lace Claire Pettibone wedding gown and her groom patiently waited for their first look in the Open-Air Loft just outside. Wearing a white tux with contrasting black lapel and bow tie, the groom escorted his stunning bride down the loft steps and into their dreamy ceremony space in front of Forme’s Gallery. Maroon, mauve and rust colored flowers covered a golden circle arbor that acted as their ceremony backdrop. The couple posed for photos exchanging rings and sealing the deal with a kiss before popping champagne in the courtyard.

Inside the Gallery, a black and white reception table was set up along with a posh lounge space. Bundles of rich florals potted in black vases added a pop of color to the table and black and gold plates with gold flatware marked each place setting. Maroon napkins and lit candlesticks created a romantic ambiance. Personalized name cards and menus outlining an elegant dinner laid atop each napkin. Across the room, the bride and groom found themselves in a modern lounge with gold and mauve accents. Framed in by two windows, a sofa and two chairs allowed the couple to sit and relax after tying the knot. Later, the wedding cake setup filled what was the lounge space. The ceremony arbor was brought in and a 3-tiered cake stood tall on a marble and golden cocktail table. The bride and groom posed for cake cutting photos before the evening ended and the styled shoot crew headed home.

Thank you to the amazing team that beautifully decorated our one-of-a-kind venue!
