Texture and Contrast at Your Wedding

Contrasts and texture are not just inspiring for design but wonderful to look to for wedding ideas.  Contrast heightens drama, while texture is an easy way to bring a luxe and engaging look to any event.  Wood, stone, organics, even feathers can create a layered look.  Inspiration is readily available from unique architecture, haute couture, natural landscapes, ancient structures - there are countless possibilities!

Vera Wang struck an opposing balance perfectly with this stunning dress - we love how the delicate layers underneath are fighting to be seen under the stark black outer layer. Even a diamond can be a rough, elegant textural statement.

We also love the classic white peonies with a black center- dramatic yet delicate.  And what about a wood patterned cake? The usually soft sugary confection takes on an interesting artistic edge.  We looked to countless unique and unexpected places for our inspiration, where will you find yours?
