The Winter, 2009 Issue -- It's All in Black and White

Inspiration. When you find it, everything else just falls into place. Our winter issue is inspired by the natural combination of two design basics: black and white. Inside every issue of Weddings Unveiled, you'll always find an abundance of white. It's just what we do. White is the most common and traditionally accepted look for wedding gowns. However, we love the sophistication of black. That is not to say that we'd be in favor of a black wedding gown, but we love the combination of black and white in fashion, in decor, in stationery, in everything. Think Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Is there anything more classically chic, dahling, than black Givenchy and ropes of pearls? Another example is the legendary house of Chanel, whose runway has historically been a study in contrast. Karl Lagerfeld once said, "There is no Chanel collection without black. It will never exist."

With that, we have created the Winter, 2009 issue of Weddings Unveiled in striking black and white, translating the pairing in everything from invitations and china to bouquets and fashion. In truth, our obsession actually began with a single dinner plate from Royal Crown Derby's famous Aves collection, inspired by a 1932 embroidery pattern. The design is dramatic, luxe and beautiful in bold black against crisp white china and we literally built our table decor around it. A week or two later, we stumbled upon the black figure of the Eames House Bird, a lean, modern silhouette with charmingly simple design and the rest, as they say, is history. The black and white Winter, 2009 issue of Weddings Unveiled was born.

Classic. Sophisticated. Modern. Dramatic. All appropriately describe the timeless combination of black & white... and the Winter, 2009 issue of Weddings Unveiled. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed creating it.

With every good wish,
Brooke Thomas and Terri Ireland
