Refined Elegance for the Couple Looking to Make a Statement

by Brynlee Handy

Refined elegance makes a statement in this wedding editorial designed by pro planner Alexa Kay Events in luxe, modern scenes around the iconic Thompson Dallas. Our beautiful model bride poses clad in a strapless ballgown from Stanley Korshak Bridal Salon with romantic nude-illusion corset bodice details that paired just perfectly with her hip-length veil – plus full glam bridal hair and makeup by WZ Beauty Studio giving us all the modern southern belle vibes. Her groom looks just as sharp, dressed in menswear from Generation Tux. Go bold with your wedding décor using striking blooms like these from R. Love Floral in a jewel-tone palette, artistic paperie from Illustrated Weddings and modern furniture pieces from POSH Couture Rentals.

A combo this chic should be a crime, and so should a cake that looks this intricate! A three-tiered design from Butterfly Cakery is so whimsical and abstract with romantic petal elements that Stephanie Brazzle Photography captured among other stunning details shown in the gallery down below. Read on for notes from a few of the vendors that played a key role in bringing this refined elegance wedding editorial to life. Cheers!

From the planner, Alexa with Alexa Kay Events: “The inspiration for this shoot was refined elegance with modern romance. We wanted to play with darker tones, clean lines and lush floral to transform the ballroom of the Thompson Dallas. With every chic, creative and inviting element, it created the perfect combination.”

From stationery designer, Yvette with Illustrated Weddings: “The wedding invitation suite we created is for a bride who likes a twist on the classics. The monogram, fonts and the floral pen and ink drawing are very traditional, but the bold black, white and blue color scheme modernize the suite. The oversized floral on the envelope also creates a ‘wow-factor’ for the guests before the invitation envelope is even opened! This is for a bride who wants to stand out, while still hinting that she can be traditional at heart.”
