Dianna and Mark’s black, white and gold ballroom wedding was a gorgeous display of classic glamour, photographed by Eli Turner Photography. The historic W Hotel served as the perfect venue for their luxurious and chic wedding style, achieved through romantic chandeliers, classic black tie wedding party fashion, and bold contrast.
The Couple: Dianna and Mark
The Wedding: The W Hotel
The Inspiration: Parisian glamour, candlelight and mirrors were key sources of inspiration. She always knew she wanted to get married in a boutique hotel with a lot of personality.
From the Planner :
“When we first spoke with Dianna about the design concept for her wedding, she mentioned a few key words that had us very excited “Parisian glamour,” “bold contrasts,” and “candlelight and mirrors”. Since the ceremony and reception would be in the same space, it was important to Dianna to create a dramatic transformation for her guests. Playing with contrasts became an exciting thread throughout the design. The resulting combination of bold black and white stripes, custom-designed mirror elements, faux croc chargers, masses of candlelight, over sized vases, linear floral designs and soft, romantically lit draping, struck the perfect note.”
