Black and White Baby’s breath + Orchid Wedding at Il Mercato

Mar 15, 2024

We just love winter weddings with a clean minimal palette, yet an abundance of layers and texture! This black and white, modern babys breath + orchid wedding at Il Mercato just makes us swoon! Classic, clean, and all the candlelight! Loved this wedding from the starting champagne tower to the ending fireworks! It was filled with joy, happy tears, and all the details!

The couple got ready at Henry Howard Hotel before moving over to Il Mercato for their courtyard ceremony and reception! The rain tried to put a damper on things but the umbrellas and ponchos would let it rain on their parade (literally)! The venue will filled with lush arrangements of babys breath and orchids and hundreds of flickering candles! It was magical and meaningful!
