Generally we think of weddings as bright and sunny days with a bride in pristine white, but what if you like to rock the boat a little? Chantal Routhier and Skys the Limit Design wanted to play with some nontraditional wedding ideas for all our nontraditional brides-to-be out there, starting with a stunning dress made up of black tulle and delicate white lace. We definitely need this dress in our closet! Pair it with an aged farm table decked out in modern black and gold place settings and decor, plus a romantic black cake and the results are magic!

Dressed To ImpressFrom Chantal Routhier Photography: Katrina Tuttle Bridal made the most stunning black and white dress for our model Maggie! Katrina’s beautiful and masterful creations are truly a work of art. She isn’t afraid to go beyond wedding white and explore color. Not only did she make a work of art for Maggie to wear, she also custom painted the flatwear black, and died the silk table runner to match the dress! For the beautiful florals we have Amanda from Humble Burdock! Amanda worked with us to create this magical bouquet. So many wonderful colors and textures!
For Maggie’s makeup we had the oh so talented Elle Munster. Elle is a true professional makeup artist through and through! She perfectly highlighted all of Maggies stunning features! For hair we had the wonderful Tara Flemming! Now Maggie does have a full head of long thick curls. I’m still figuring out how Tara has it perfectly coifed into this beautiful updo! Tara may have had one of the most challenging jobs of the day. You may not be able to tell but it was crazy windy and rainy the day of the shoot. Yet Tara and Elle were able to create looks that looked soft yet held up in the elements.
