Modern Designer Inspired Wedding

The inspiration behind this style shoot started with BLoved Events‘ love for all things Kate Spade. When you think of Kate Spade New York, the following words come to mind – fun, colorful, and of course black and white stripes and polka dots!

The Richmond was the perfect modern venue for the shoot. It was a lovely blank canvas that showcased the bright bold colors of Kate Spade. There are so many more cute goodies to be seen in the full gallery here, captured by Alicia Thurston Photography. Trust us, you won’t want to miss even the smallest detail from this modern designer inspired wedding shoot.

I added pops of gold in addition to the black and white, some glitter, and fun colors to tie it altogether in a chic and swanky way. The table setting came together perfectly with the gold sequin linen and the black and white striped table runner, paired with the beautiful bright florals in gold vases from Coquette Studios. We placed each plate with a napkin secured with black and white striped ribbon to create a bow.

We further showcased bows by using Kate Spade pushpins on the seating chart and throughout the treats on the dessert table. Our sweets table and 4-tiered cake was designed by the talented SweeterE that also featured and incorporated our theme. Alicia Thurston Photography captured the editorial style of shoot beautifully, and tied everything together just the way I envisioned it.

  12. -100. convert grams to cups says:

    You can sprinkle just a little granola between your layers too, for crunchiness, if you want but
    this will include a gram or two of fat and approximately 25-50 calories for the dessert.
    convert grams to cups I took the plastic film cover off the top, filled the cup with
    water, on the marked fill line for the inside from the cup, stirred well and microwaved on high for about four minutes.
    If the middle-aged women drink 1 to 2 cup of wine daily, they can prevent cancers
    and cardiovascular diseases.
