pattern play

I’ve been seeing more and more patterns used in wedding design and I absolutely love it! It’s definitely a trend I can’t get enough of A couple of weeks ago I featured a shoot titled ‘Interlocked’ that featured a graphic pattern along with vintage styling and I found it entirely inspirational – I tried to recreate the mood of it here today.

Black, gold, and white wedding inspiration board

The black and white color palette of this inspiration board allows the black elements to really pop and the patterns and textures to come through the design. The graphic table runner mixed with floral print napkins is genius and I love how the gold on the wedding cake reflects the aged look of the wall behind the bride. The marble and brick are nice contrasts to each other and the twin flower girls’ hairstyles are reflected in the chic cake topper!

Details to adore:
