A Black Tie Wedding at Howe Farms, the Woodlands

This post may contain affiliate links.  See my disclosure policy to learn more.

There’s a trend we’re seeing in the wedding industry of a more elegant, black tie wedding style, created by things like long-stemmed bouquets, floor length gowns and a strategic level of simplicity. Cassidy and Tyler chose this classic and elegant style for their wedding at Howe Farms’ newest venue, The Woodland; an Italian villa inspired venue in Georgetown, Tennessee.

Florals for a Black-Tie Wedding Style

I loved doing this style of bouquet, mostly because it’s different than what we usually do. It was a breath of fresh air seeing all the details come together so perfectly for this elegant black tie style. So for the Mantle, which would be the ceremony backdrop, we did an asymmetrical floral installation of crisp smilax greenery, and fresh neutral blooms. Then our centerpieces also featured this same crisp-looking design to compliment all the black and gold accents. We also did a floral installation crawling up the sweetheart table, and lots of our gold rentals as centerpieces paired with the florals.

The black floor-length gowns Cassidy chose for her girls were complimented perfectly by black table linens and the black architectural accents at the venue. Other black elements included the guys’ suits, paper goods and wedding signage. These design elements really popped off of the light and airy Italian-style venue. Cassidy and her vendors did such an impeccable job, and the whole day came together beautifully!
