Urban Grunge Meets Elegance in this Black & White Themed Wedding . . . only the bride was in color
Today's wedding feature on Brandy and Elliot from Madeline's Weddings and Event is truly a stunning one. It's a wedding where urban grunge meets elegance. This wedding was all black and white - from the reception décor {which even included feathers for the centerpieces}, linens and stationery - right down to the attire the guests wore {the bride and groom requested that all guests wear just black and white which then let the bride be the only one in color}. And, wait until you see the Justin Alexander couture wedding ball gown the bride wore! It's beyond amazing!

Real Wedding : a black & white dress, cranberry red shoes + feathers

A special treat for Eye Candy Friday today - a real Canadian wedding with the bride in the most gorgeous of wedding gowns {black and white} and the most unique wedding bouquet with white feathers in it! Don't you just love Nikki, the bride's, dress with her red shoes? The ceremony and reception for Nikki and Todd was held at the Four Points Sheraton and planned by Madeline's Weddings and Events and photographed by Jeremy Hiebert Photography.

For their reception, Madeline's designed the space with a palette that included black, cranberry red and white. The reception tables were dressed with cranberry red floor length linens, cranberry red overlays and a damask table runner. The chairs had black chair covers and the tables were topped off with black napkins to match.

For Nikki and Todd's head table, there was a gorgeous damask table linen that covered the entire table and a white table runner spread across. And, of course Madeline's also had their signature head table décor that included candles and beautiful red rose petals that just POP against the damask linen.


Madeline's also designed all the stationery for our happy couple Nikki and Todd. They created invitations and matching respond cards as well as the reception stationery that included menu cards, table numbers and a seating chart.

Real Wedding : a country vineyard wedding in Canada

Today's country vineyard themed wedding of Liane & Antonio with elements inspired by nature is just gorgeous. It's another beautiful wedding from Madeline's Weddings and Events in Canada. When I saw the first shot of those heels, something told me this was going to be a spectacular wedding and it is. Photographs are by Carmin Davidson Photography.

The ceremony and reception took place in separate rooms at The Coboto Center. And, as Madeline wrote, "this ceremony is a perfect example of simple and elegant. All you need is love!" And, this is so true.

You are going to LOVE the next set of photos from Liane & Antonio's photo shoot with their wedding party.

And, can you believe this? Liane made the bouquets and boutonnieres herself! They are all made out of feathers and wheat - I love the uniqueness of them.

Aren't these mini wine barrels just the cutest? They were made the brides father and used as centerpieces. Small grape clusters were at the base of each barrel which matched perfectly with the bottle corks that served as place card holders.

And, at the reception, Madeline and her team worked their magic as they always do - the banquet tables were dressed in floor length gold satin linens, gold organza overlays, gold satin napkins, chocolate brown chair covers and matching chocolate table runners. The ceiling was draped in ivory chiffon and spotlighting accented the entire reception.

Thank you so much Madeline for sharing another truly inspiring wedding with my readers today. To see more from the wedding of Liane and Antonio please see here. And, of course to see more from Madeline's Weddings and Events, please visit their web site and blog.

Real Wedding : a yellow and black affair + peacock feather high heels

And, now another spectacular wedding from Madeline's Weddings and Events is here. The wedding of Ramona and Chris is just gorgeous - what a lovely color palette the bride chose {yellow and black}. And I just LOVE a bride in glasses {probably because I'm an all day glasses gal myself}. Photography was provided by Sterling Images.

This idea is so clever - Ramona's mom came up with the idea to have 40 balloons blown up with postcards attached to each of them and signed by the wedding guests. Each postcard had a stamp on it so the people that would find them could mail them back to the happy couple.

Madeline and her team used black linens and chairs covers paired with yellow table runners and napkins for the banquet tables. And, for their round head table, they used yellow chair covers with a yellow linen and patterned overlay on top. The look was completed with yellow rose petals and yellow spotlighting for the perfect touches. And, I totally agree with Madeline, "The result was STUNNING".

Thank you so much Madeline for sharing these two spectacular weddings with my readers today. To see more from Madeline's Weddings and Events please visit their web site and blog.
