inspiration blackberries • a black & white garden wedding

picture it an airy, chic, contemporary garden wedding...in black and white. is it possible? yes.

while this color combo is bold, dramatic, and often used for formal wedding motifs, i am wild about the idea of mixing black and white in playful ways also, as it is so unique and unexpected. our new blackberries letterpress design is a perfect example of how to bring whimsy to this striking color palette. and why shouldn't you have fun with it?

play up the contemporary tone — forgo a cake in lieu of white frosted cupcakes on a solid black pedestal. so different, so couture. a white floral bouquet full of privet berries and wide textured ribbon celebrates the crisp black and white theme while maintaining the casual, bountiful garden feel. absolutely splendid.

finally, a table setting with lush fresh blackberries, olives and artisan cheeses adds a rustic note. i think we'd all want to be at this wedding, no doubt.
