Gracie and Mitch hosted their sophisticated summer wedding at the Ashford Estate in New Jersey. The vision for their wedding day was to be effortlessly elegant with a classic romantic vibe. They chose to stick with a black and white color scheme that worked well for the vintage aesthetic they wanted to incorporate into the day.

Country Estate Wedding

The Ashford Estate was the perfect wedding venue for Gracie and Mitch’s classy vintage romance wedding. The estate has high ceilings, huge windows, and plenty of space for guests to dance and relax. The expansive grounds have waterfalls, gazebos, arbors, and fountains to wander around and take photos. This sprawling estate is a piece of the countryside in the middle of New Jersey.

All of Gracie’s bridesmaids wore black satin bridesmaid dresses from Kennedy Blue. The sheen of the satin fabric looked beautiful in the flash of the photographer’s camera as well as in the natural sunlight. The black and white wedding colors with black bridesmaid dresses are a simple yet underrated wedding trend we love. The bridesmaids wore a mix of three different bridesmaid dress styles: Dylan, Quin, and Zara.

The ceremony space at the Ashford Estate is a barn-style chapel. The chapel has vaulted ceilings, plenty of windows to let in natural light, and a huge floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. The white interior complemented their white floral arrangements and black and white wedding theme. 

White Wedding Gown With White Bouquet

The first time Mitch saw Gracie in her wedding dress was as she walked down the aisle, making their ceremony all the more special and emotional. Gracie wore a satin silk crepe gown by Alexandra Grecco with floral details added along the straps. 

Minimalist Wedding Colors + Maximal Attention to Detail

White and Gold Wedding Table Decor

Gracie and Mitch were committed to a black and white wedding color scheme -- from black satin bridesmaid dresses to all white bouquets. That didn’t stop them from creating a unique wedding with the attention they paid to small details.

Signature Cocktails Wedding Reception

Pops of gold, a locally hand-crafted cake, and custom cocktails are just some of the personalized elements of this wedding. The couple had signature cocktails created for their big day so even their drinks were customized. They also invited their guests to take a disposable camera to capture their own memories from the night.

Black and White Wedding Details

The stationary for their wedding was the most personal item of all, the bride has her own design company which allowed her to put her own finishing touches on her wedding details. The menus, invitations, and more were all designed by the bride.

A classic black tuxedo is the pinnacle of men’s formalwear. This style can make any groomsman look like a classic gentleman. The icing on the cake is a simple black bowtie to tie it all together. Mitch stands out from his groomsmen with a small white rose boutonniere.
