berry and black

The catalyst for today’s berry and black wedding inspiration board was the center picture of the wedding invitation envelope. There is so much going on in that image – but it SO works! I love the chic black with white hand lettering as well as the berries, blooms, forest floor and foliage.

Berry and black wedding inspiration board

For a wooded and whimsical berry and black wedding there are so many things you can do with this look. The lavender colored wedding cake is definitely a statement piece and the ribbons for a ceremony backdrop are flawless. Rich ruby reds spice up the look a lot and the unique floral centerpiece on the reception table is a work of art!

    Maybe it’s my fondness for berry tones but I am completely smitten! Like Sukey mentioned, this has a very moody, passionate, romantic vibe.

  3. That cake! Divine!

  4. Such a pretty palette – and how cute is the poodle?!
