Style Me Pretty

Nothing says classy and sophisticated more than black and white. If you’re looking to up the formal ante, then this two-toned trend just may be for you. Black-and-white wedding dresses–in a range of patterns, cuts, and color palettes–are becoming all the rage on both the runway and the wedding aisle.

Not ready to fully commit?Try using black as an accent color by adding a black sash around your waist, a ribbon in your hair, or onyx-colored jewelry and accessories.

If you’re feeling bold and brave, take a look below for some wedding dress inspiration:

A Simple and Sweet Calamigos Ranch Wedding by Kat Harris Photography

CalamigosRanchWeddingPhotographer.KatHarris 43

Vio and Andrew’s special day was truly special, as you’re about to see today! An adorable couple that met on a film set in LA, they got married on a quiet Sunday in the early afternoon in Malibu, California. With a focus on elegance and one-ness, their gorgeous celebration was simple yet sweet, and took place at the always-lovely Calamigos Ranch. Captured beautifully by the talented Kat Harris, this is one wedding you’ll love looking through! A few personal words from the bride:

From the moment my husband and I first visited Calamigos Ranch we both knew it was the place we wanted to get married. It is a magical oasis in the middle of the Malibu mountains which makes you feel like you’ve just stepped into a fairy land. What we loved most about the venue is how stunning it is, which meant less decorating for us. We really wanted a simple wedding, and having Calamigos as our venue made that possible. I decided to keep the flowers all the same (center pieces/bouquets/sign in table) because I loved the feel of connection and one-ness it gave. I put a lot of effort into making the wedding feel easy on the eyes and clutter free. I am really drawn to comfy spaces and to me, less is more. Happiness does not even begin to describe how I felt on my wedding day. Everything felt warm and welcoming and filled with so much love. Thankfully, I had a wonderful photographer to capture the true essence of that day.
