Elegant black and white wedding ideas inspired by Greek Mythology
We have to say, this black + white wedding editorial coming to us from du soleil photographie and Jesse of Clover Event Co. completely epitomizes intentionality when it comes to design elements. Each and every detail, right down to the gold leaf on the cake and the structural dried florals, represents an element in Greek mythology, only with a modern, elegant twist. Beginning with these stunning invites Jesse dreamed up herself…
Jesse of Clover Event Co. explains, Persephone is the goddess of spring and Hades is the god of the underworld. To bring their love and relationship to life, we married the ethereal and delicate details with modern minimalist design elements in black. The trick was to create a harmony between the soft, feminine nature of spring and the bold, sepulchral qualities of the underworld.
Swoon-worthy Christian Louboutins, no?
The florals were designed with a combination of bright spring blooms and dried grass elements. Hazel Dust Studio used bright poppies, earthy pink hellebores, and budding branches in a dynamic, ikebana-style arrangement. A stunning contrast to the delicate dried grasses that represented Persephone’s origins as the daughter of Demeter—goddess of the harvest.
They evoked a sense of modern luxury with the stationery which featured a serif font and vellum overlay.
The tablescape was refined and modern. Matte ceramic plates, black and gold flatware, and streamlined glassware alongside washed linens in fog white and clay pink. Our menus featured roman numerals with a vellum overlay and matching place cards. While elegant, organic florals and industrial black candelabra provided the perfect finishing touches to our concept.
The couples’ black + white fashion was sleek and bold, with simple accessories in gold.
