The planners here took inspiration from the trendsetting ambiance of New York City.

A Black and White Wedding in Virginia Wine Country

The classic and perennially stylish black and white shades were softened by Glenstone Gardens’ gentle green backdrop.

The bride and groom were resplendent in classic black and white, whether inside the monochromatic decorated tent or walking across the lush grass at Glenstone Gardens. ~

Elegant Details for a Black and White Wedding

Pearls adorned the cake and wedding accessories continuing the theme of timeless elegance.

Bold red lipstick on the bride added a bright touch to the monochrome wedding theme.

White Wedding Bouquet Inspiration

Lacy white roses and minimal green foliage in the bouquet helped tie together the black and white wedding color palette.

The reception took place in a spacious, architectural black-framed tent with clear siding—one could be forgiven for mistaking it as a permanent greenhouse structure on the lush grounds.

Inside, the modern black bar was framed by artistic black orbs and a white flower-festooned tree.

Elegant Black and White Décor at a Wedding Reception

At the entryway to the tent was a black-and-white checkered dance floor.

As the couple departed, their exquisite red 1968 Chevelle convertible added an unexpected pop of bright color to the scene.
