Dusty Rose + Black Wedding Inspiration

Eastern Shore of Maryland Wedding Planner & Designer

Studio, Styled Shoots

We do so many waterfront weddings, it’s easy to get stuck on the color blue (which seems to be what EVERYONE wants this year!). And while we absolutely adore layering water tones with neutrals—because it always turns out gorgeous, duh!—every now and then we need to push ourselves creatively to get out of the rut. Enter this fun tablescape that’s a tad feminine, a tad modern, and a whole lot of pretty! We’ve been literally trying to convince every client to use this black flatware from DC Rental because we’re totally obsessed. So, naturally, we had to use it on this design. From there, we wanted to steer away from basically all things traditional, so we opted for hand-lettered placemats in lieu of a table linen, used a fun triangular napkin fold (that came to us on the spot!), and incorporated modern accents like black votives and vellum menus. We’re obsessed!

Being based on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, we’re constantly finding new ways to reinvent “nautical.” For our spring studio tablescape, we wanted to add a little bit of a modern twist to the classic navy and white color palette, bringing in square plates from Eastern Shore Tents & Events, geometric place card holders from Esselle and a fun patterned napkin from La Tavola Fine Linen. We think it’s the perfect mix of classic and modern, all gorgeously captured by Lauren R. Swann! See more over on Fashionable Hostess!
