Wedding Inspiration: A Bespoke Black Wedding Dress

Wedding Inspiration: A Bespoke Black Wedding Dress

Yes, this Kansas City, Missouri, wedding is incredibly gorgeous & bespoke, but the real reason I am sharing this wedding with you today is because I have finally found a real-life bride, and not a runway model, who can pull off a black wedding dress and still look 100% feminine, flirty, and romantic. This unbelievable black wedding gown was actually designed by the bride's friend who was inspired by a design from Vera Wang's collection. (Remember when she blew everyone's mind & didn't include a single white wedding dress in her couture collection?)

Jessica & Hunter were already married, but they wanted to host a wedding that was "all their own" - and they certainly did. And it was certainly smart to get one of our new favorite wedding photographers, Alea of Alea Lovely Fine Art Photography, to capture every perfect detail.

The decor, the wedding cake, the flowers, the industrial-esque wedding venue - it is all divine with this black wedding dress, creating a more edge-y, urban aesthetic. I hope to see more of this bridal boldness in 2013!
