Specializing in design and styling, Donnie Brown Weddings and Events created a styled shoot flourishing with sophisticated elegance. Hotel Crescent Court provided the perfect space as well as divine catering services, complemented by a classic multi-tiered cake with elaborate gold detailing by Delicious Cakes. The charming tabletop was intricately styled with a variety of black and gold dinnerware from Top Tier Event Rentals + Staffing, modern acrylic candlesticks, subtly patterned linens and beautiful ivory blooms, also from Donnie Brown. Beyond provided enchanting lighting to enhance the tabletops, creating an inviting gleam that emphasized the gold tones, and a golden paper suite by Paper Planet paired with the color scheme. J. May Photography captured all the ornate inspiration beautifully. Finally, as the icing on the cake, the stunning model bride wore a luxurious, form-fitting Galia Lahav Haute Couture gown and jewelry from Stanley Korshak Bridal along with glamorous beauty by Tease to Please Hair & Makeup. You can never go wrong with sophisticated elegance and a classic style!

From the planner, Donnie Brown with Donnie Brown Weddings and Events: “I’ve always thought that a uniquely beautiful color palette for The Crescent is gold and ivory. It really shines there. But it can often get a little too ‘bridal,’ so I included black to make it more sophisticated. I wanted to also include some retro-60s elements along with some contemporary touches and tie them together with classic elegance. The candlelight hued lighting tied the entire scheme together. I love this look for that venue.”
