Our Jennifer Matteo Event Planning team, and all of the wedding professionals involved in Derek and Herman’s wedding were amazed by this electrifying couple and watching their wedding design unfold.
Both Derek and Herman asked for a wedding completely designed using only neutral colors.
Our design team decided to go with black and white and this creation was anything but boring. It was like no other wedding we have ever done. We took black and white to a whole new level using florals to create texture and balance while presenting them at varying levels to create interest.
The inclusion of lighting, lounge furniture, linen and unique and unexpected elements created intimate and romantic touches. From the organic elements in their stunning invitations and natural elements added to the centerpieces to create an organic display; no detail was over looked.
Derek and Herman looked smashing in their white tuxedo jackets with black satin shawl collar, vests and bow ties with matching white rose boutonnieres.
A little white wood chapel set the stage for an elegant, understated intimate wedding ceremony, complete with a solo violinist.
We transformed the outdoor reception space from open, grassy blank canvass into a dream wedding.
Guests were welcomed by an oversized black and white checkerboard patterned dancefloor surrounded by guest tables. The long tables were draped in white linen and layered with wide black runners that were adorned with uniquely textured vessels of flowers. The look was completed with textured black charger plates, wide banded china, black napkins and custom menu cards adorned with a single bloom.
Tucked into the corner was an elegantly appointed sweetheart table draped in black linen and a single elegant floral arrangement. The perfect vantage point to watch their guests enjoy the celebration.
Another amazing detail was their stark black wedding cake with white flowers, gold leaf and the words “love you more.”
The night ended with a kiss under a shower of sparklers surrounded by family and friends.
Congratulations Derek and Herman!
