If ever there was a color palette that evoked instant glamour, it would be black and white. And this Willowdale Estate inspiration shoot from Annmarie Swift Photography and Always Yours Events is oozing with glamour, elegance and sophistication. From the Amanda Day Rose Paperie invites to the Maid of Honor’s chic jumpsuit, the monochromatic details of this shoot prove that black and white will never go out of style. See it all in The Vault!
From Always Yours Events… When Annmarie Swift and I dreamt up this styled inspiration shoot, our goal was to create a fine art design both “classic and charming” within an intimate, romantic space! Willowdale Estate’s black and white private dining room filled with a plethora of gorgeous natural light was an absolute perfect fit for this design, and it’s decor really provided us with so much inspiration. To create a softened, romantic look we incorporated a lovely dove gray shade into the classic black and white color palette and tied in accents of gold. The custom fine art invitation suite by Amanda Day Rose set the tone, from the deckled edges to hand drawn sketch of the Willowdale Estate to the soft gray envelopes sealed with a white heirloom wax seal. For the tablescape, I wanted to again create a design that was utterly charming and intimate, and so we set one large guest table down the center of the room with matte white embossed linens and stone washed Louis chairs from Be Our Guest. Each place setting was set with the loveliest details such as custom gray linen napkins tied with soft white hand dyed silk ribbons, deckled edge menus and escort cards calligraphed with gorgeous brush script by Becca Joas and matte gold tapered candlesticks.
