From Ashley of Attention 2 Details Events – “I wanted to create a look that exuded a femininity and prettiness, but had an edge for a bride and groom that wanted something different. I used a variety of pink shades to help bring out a softer side, but paired it with black and white stripes, leather, and even studded details to bring out more of an edgy look.

The fashion was definitely a highlight of this shoot. Most brides don’t think to incorporate menswear into the wedding party on anything other than the men, but I wanted to show couples that you don’t have to put your bridesmaids in dresses! Your bridal party can look just as chic, and still very feminine in classic tuxedo pants and crisp button-down shirts.

To dress up the women’s attire we fitted them with studded bow ties and paired the same bow ties on the men. The finished look was polished, classic, and still feminine. I also topped our bride’s gorgeous gown off with a fitted black blazer. Who says you can’t have fun with your wedding day look? It’s a great way to provide a little bit of unexpected drama for the bride!”

From Ashley – “For the table I paired black and white striped La Travola linens with gorgeous floral centerpiece, studded votives, geometric plates (placed off-balance with each other to give the table more depth and texture), smoked glass, and ghost chairs to give it a modern and cool vibe.

I created two super easy DIYs for the table. First I gave the flatware an updated and unique look just by wrapping a simple coil of bendable wire in hot pink to the stems of each piece. I also dyed the napkins to match our color scheme by dip-dying them to create a bleed effect in the center of each napkin. When placed on the table, they helped to bring out our pop of pink color.

The menus, place cards, and table numbers were created using a black and white motif and a very modern design to bring out an edgy feel to the table.”

“The cake was a very simple white fondant tiered cake, topped with a pink fondant blossom, but it also added some edge with a black fondant band and silver studded details. The cake was displayed on top of a vintage firearms shipping crate.

The caterer wanted to balance the menu with some fun and edgy selections that would be unexpected and would be sure to surprise any guest!  To drink, Bailey’s with dark coffee ice cubes was served, along with two variations on Kahlua shooters – one topped with a white powdered donut bite, the other served with a salted dark chocolate mini cookie.

Gourmet jello shooters were also served and the layered colors and flavors looked very modern against the white serving platters.

The menu consisted of Forbidden Risotto Cake with Goat Cheese and Mini Chopped Beets, Zebra Pasta with Pomegranate Cream Sauce and Ahi-Tuna with Balsamic Reduction Glaze. The risotto and pasta were stained with squid ink!”
