A hand-lettered lucite invitation (Soirée Signatures) makes every wedding guest feel like a VIP.

A classic rose gold bridal set and textured band (Zundel’s) give a contemporary bride and groom timeless elegance.
A simple “Maresa” V-neck gown in Smoke (Monique Lhuillier, Bella Bridesmaids) stuns next to structural statement gown No. BL19201 (BLISS Monique Lhuillier, Ivory and White) and diamond earrings (Zundel’s). Chic and vibrant greenery stands in for formal floral bouquets (Julia Greer Fobes).
A tailored gray suit and yellow tie (Metzger’s) paired with a wildflower boutonniere (Julia Greer Fobes) create a sophisticated look, and gray velvet sofas (Port City Rentals) add metropolitan panache.

Personalized place setting menus (Soirée Signatures) invite guests to their seats and prepare them for the evening ahead.
Marbled metallic plates, structural flatware and crisp, white napkins (The Ivy Cottage) matched with charcoal-colored chargers and white napkin rings (Living Well) make an incredibly elegant table setting. Lavish stationery (Soirée Signatures) and striking greenery (Julia Greer Fobes) add dramatic detail.
Abstract ceiling decorations and cascading greenery (Julia Greer Fobes) add minimal yet dramatic statements to a Lucite seating arrangement (Port City Rentals).
A simple but tall cake (Pollman’s) needs only a botanical cascade (styled by MB staff) and a streamlined gold base (Port City Rentals).
