Vintage. Rocker. Edgy.
All of these words describe one of the coolest real weddings we’ve seen yet: Avital and Brett’s black and red ball. Here are the deets:
- Bride and Groom: Avital and Brett
- Wedding Date: September 25, 2011
- Wedding Location: Woodbury Country Club in Woodbury, NY
- Bride’s Favorite Moment: “The whole day was a dream come true, but the best part was walking to Brett for the first time that day and seeing him all dressed up and his reaction to me and my dress!”
Yup, this day was magic – and it all started with a “Will You Marry Me?” banner flown behind an airplane over the ocean. Avital said yes to Brett’s romantic proposal and then got to work planning what she calls her “red and black ball” themed wedding. “I really felt like a movie star, my dress, shoes, hair and makeup came out perfectly,” said Avital. She’s right – and we have the real wedding pictures to prove it:
Yes to real wedding pictures that capture the genuine essence of a happy bride in love on her wedding day.
Red rhinestone skull cufflinks? Every groom’s dream. Yes please!
Oh man, how awesome are these red sneakers hiding under the bride’s gorgeous gown? “Everyone was going crazy for them,” said Avital.
Tall centerpieces add drama, even when there are only a few stems.
These black and white table cards have a vintage-yet-modern vibe and the couple’s custom logo makes them extra special.
You just know there’s nothing sweeter than a little post-cake-cutting icing on the nose.
Swiss dots and pretty black and red fondant bows are just perfect for the “black and red ball” wedding theme.
Um, custom bobblehead cake topper? So freakin’ adorable.
Oooh, this vintagey ring takes my breath away!
Red bridesmaid dresses with black shoes and a black MOH dress with red shoes… so awesome. Oh, and is that red crinoline peeking out from under the bride’s gown? You betcha.
Your man and his buddies – the perfect way to spend the morning of the wedding.
This is one good lookin’ group! Smiling faces and smooching newlyweds = photo perfection.
This little baby made one super sweet ring bearer (the rings are tied to each of her wrists). Oh, and those red shoes? So priceless.
That’s one happy bride and one thrilled little girl!
ed and white flowers with dark bouquet pics match this bridal bouquet to the wedding’s “black and red ball” theme. Seriously, this is pretty darn sexy for a bunch of wedding flowers!
Love the white spider mums, red wax flowers, and black calla lilies in these bridesmaids’ bouquets. Also love the different black legs and sharp red dresses – all perfectly to theme.
This flower girl basket is covered with white roses and red ribbon – a dream for your special little girl!
OMG, these shoes!!! You know you want ’em. (Yes and the lace, too – talk about amazing!)
Red and black fingernails to go with the “red and black ball” theme. So badass.
Never miss the romantic newlywed kissing shot. This is a must-take picture, people.
