Dramatic Wedding Inspiration with a Black Wedding Dress - Jillian Gorman Photography - smitten-mag.com_0089

Elegant and dramatic, this inspiration is traditional with an uber modern flair.  Black and white with lots of greenery is a classic choice for any wedding, but this captivating photo shoot will show you how to make it your own.  Designer, Morgan Miller from Spreading Lovely talks about what inspired them:
We used foliage and branches to help convey our offbeat and slightly untraditional bride, set in a completely white space to let the details shine through.  Many brides find themselves struggling between tradition, and paving their own path – so we wanted to create something moody with hints of darkness, but still related able with its effortless, elegant ease.  Elizabeth Dye had the most beautiful dresses for the occasion –  the white Zephyr gown with the cut out in the front is edgy with a traditional silhouette, and the Furiosa gown is a gorgeous deep black two piece for those more daring brides. 
Freckled Floral absolutely killed it with her oversized, moody bouquets and large greenery installation to set the tone for the images. I loved the idea of doing a table on the ground with lots of dark and cozy pillows, and think its great more brides are turning to non-traditional ways to seat their guests.  
Brown Fox Calligraphy delivered the most gorgeous water color pieces with her signature effortless calligraphy style with hints of copper to tie together our copper pieces throughout. 
Skyla Arts delivered gorgeous eye makeup with some drama and an oxblood lip for our bride and a more muted, but powerful lip for our secondary look.
