Nebraska Wedding Day Fall/Winter 2021

Strike a pose against the sweep of the black-and-white staircase in The Fountains Ballroom, a chic canvas you can adorn according to whatever mood strikes your fancy. Glowing candlelight and a generous bouquet of white florals and deep greens warm up the classic interior.

From the moment your guests open the save-the-date card, this dramatic white-on-black stationery suite announces this is no ordinary event. Designer RSVP makes stylish use of simple floral illustrations and traditional lettering mixed with a trace of whimsical script to set the stage for a wedding to remember.


Our modern bride makes a bold statement in this Martina Liana gown from Ellynne Bridal with high halter neckline and open back, with the bride’s deep red lip as a striking counterpoint of color. A bouquet of white roses accented by striking black ferns repeats the theme in floral form.

Cake Expressions, Inc. proves wedding cakes need be neither white nor round, with this winning geometric take on tradition. Feathery ferns and white florals soften the angles for a modern twist on romance.

There’s nothing somber about black in this effortlessly breezy coordinated ensemble— his from Mr. Tuxedo, hers from Ellynne Bridal.

The eyes have it, with smoky shadow and lashes of a rich charcoal hue. A relaxed, romantic coiffure is sweetly topped with a dainty seedpearl headpiece and earrings to match.

Share an intimate moment over a glass of wine at a table for two where black and white reign, burnished with touches of gold in the place setting and linens. For the appetizer, start with mouth-watering bruschetta on crostini from Patricia Catering & Cocktails.

A figure-skimming Essense of Australia gown from Ellyne Bridal shows off its contemporary flair, thanks to the strong verticals, with a luxurious train to complete the look.
