Board #522 | Romantic Black & White

I love black and white with some accent colors – love it for home interiors, love it for clothing, and I love it for a wedding. As a wedding color scheme it strikes a balance of classic beauty and bold sophistication, and the addition of green foliage softens it (there’s also an itty bit of purple in the form of a Saipua arrangement with some fritillaria). I’ve also chosen romantic details like calligraphy, ribbons, and a vintage cake topper and ring. Also, with a color scheme like this, bridesmaids can wear their favorite little black dress…

Mood: romantic early spring
Palette: green, gray, black, white
