Are you and your groom a “classic” kind of couple? Then you’ll adore these ideas for a lavish classic-styled wedding as presented by Jodi Miller Photography. The colors are dignified and simple — black, pink, and white — but the key to the absolute lavishness of this wedding is in the detail. Ruffles are everywhere: in the bride’s sumptuous train, layers of lace that swirl enchantingly when she dances…romantic ruching on shoulder sashes for the maids…a flower girl whose skirt bells out around her on the grass…even on white wreaths gracing the church doors. This is grown-up dress-up time, and everyone seems to be having a ball with it. (Witness the fun shot of the couple kissing beneath the bride’s veil!)
Some classic touches are all-girl: pearls, perfume, feathers. Some are a nod to days gone by: the simple elegance of black-and-white images of the church, the party, the reception. And some are all for the guests: old-fashioned lettering on wedding programs, invitations, place cards, and favor bags. The beauty of traditional flowers is another classic touch — roses grace the bouquets and boutonnieres, the palest blush of pink in each one — and the bridal party posing beneath blossom-laden trees. Tables are swathed in pink from stem to stern, with gold dinner plates that add an extra-special touch of class. “Sweet treats” are all pink and white — with signage edged in gold. It’s a feast of classic details, of lace, love, and laughter — a classic celebration of Richmond wedding festivities that will linger in sweet memory forever.
