Have It Both Ways With the right venue, your wedding can take place indoors or outdoors, and embrace styles that reflect you both. Here, black tie elegance marries with Old World intrigue.
A black tie wedding theme brings simplicity and elegance to a white-draped ballroom, with table cards and menus wrapped in black ribbon. High centerpieces explode with white dendrobium spray, while low arrangements delight the eye with hydrangeas and tulips. Gold chargers, cake tablecloth and Chiavari chairs accent the sophisticated scene.
At the ceremony site, a rose petal carpet adds a pop of fresh color to the grassy aisle.
All dressed up: The black-tied menu and gold-rimmed place setting promise a fancy and delicious dinner.
Whether it’s for the wedding or a day-after brunch, the courtyard makes a fine gathering spot with Old World style. Add a modern touch with cherry mahogany wood tables and fruitwood Chiavari chairs. Garland the table with fragrant eucalyptus and Black Magic roses. Navy paper with sapphire geode slices wrapped in gold bring rich textures to the day.
