Shontee + John Greenville North Carolina Real Wedding

Once you decide to get married, you immediately start to work. Where will the wedding take place? What about the reception? How many people can I afford to invite? You head is spinning because the list is endless. One very important question, is what should be the colors for the wedding? They set the tone. They make it formal or casual. Well, Shontee and John chose black and white when they got married in Greenville, North Carolina and they had fun with it so it was not stuffy or boring. wedding note red wedding shoes hanging wedding dress red and white wedding bouquet blue and white wedding cake red wedding shoes african american weddings

First, let's look at the couple, John had on a tuxedo with a black bow tie. His wonderful bride Shontee complemented him with her beautiful strapless gown. She wore black shoes instead of the traditional white and her accessories were perfect. She wore a pearl necklace and pearl earrings which allowed her dress to stand out. Even her bouquet was composed of black and white flowers. This is really unique. They just looked spectacular.

The color theme did not stop with them. They even carried out at the reception. They had a black and white tier cake and they put her garter on one glass and a tuxedo cut out in another. Remember, it is not the colors but what you do with them. Be inspired and have fun with your wedding no matter what colors you decide to choose.
