I love this modern black and white wedding from Concept Photography. This sleek color palette pairs well with the super cool – and colorful – art museum setting. The fun couple, Katie and Matt, are here to share their insight:

What inspired your vision for your wedding?

We wanted a classic look that would stand the test of time. I have always loved black and white and envisioned a cocktail/lounge reception where people could spend time dining and drinking, lounging with good friends in conversation or dancing to a live band. We wanted our guests to be a part of a sophisticated but relaxed party.

Tell us about finding your venue:

We wanted to think outside the box and avoid the traditional hotel reception. We both have a passion for art and the clean lines and modern atmosphere of the Orlando Museum of Art fit their vision perfectly.

What was your biggest planning challenge?

The biggest challenge was staying within our budget – which didn’t happen! Ha-ha!

What was your favorite design element of your wedding?

We loved our lounge furniture and high top cocktail tables. Guests could sit if they wanted but did not have assigned seating. My (Katie’s) mom designed black and white pillows for each of the couches and ottomans. “Mr.” and “Mrs.” pillows sat on our loveseat at our sweetheart table. We also loved our “Haute Dog Station” where Gator Dogs, Pitt Dogs, and Southern Cross Dogs were served. Each style of hot dog was a personal touch that Matt and I wanted to make sure represented us.

Did you have any DIY details?

My mom, a costume designer, wanted to make us unique pillows for our furniture.

What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?

Matt: “Seeing Katie for the first time at our first look, I couldn’t believe how lucky I was.”

Katie: “Coming around the corner as my dad walked me down the aisle and looking only at Matt as we were surrounded by 100 of our closest friends and family. Also, when we went to cut our cake we took a look at all of our friends and family who were wearing their glow in the dark sunglasses – the room was filled with love and laughter.”

I love all of the fun food details in this wedding! The “haute dog” theme carries through from the save-the-dates and provides a great personal touch. Are you planning to get creative with your menu? I’d love to hear your ideas!

XOXO,
Carlee
