Black is Definitely the New Black

Black is the New Black.png

This year Pantone named Ultra Violet the color of the year explaining that Ultra Violet signifies “originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points to the future.” Ultra Violet is a fantastic color and we will surely see a lot of it this year, but is anyone else feeling like Black could possibly be the color of this year after watching the 2018 Golden Globes on Sunday night? Of course, we love black for all the obvious reasons like it has the amazing ability to make you look chic and trendy, and at the same time classy and dauntless, but I think this year Black has a whole new ring to it, unity. Each and every woman looked completely unique and beautiful in their black attire on Sunday, from Issa Rae’s shimmery black gown and cape to Christina Hendricks’ sultry pants suit. Every woman stunned on that carpet and the best part is that they did it together. This year black will signify unity, courage, hardcore woman power, friendship, and mad love. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m thinking Black is the new Black. Time’s Up and the winds of change are blowing.  

Bert's Entertainment Complex Shoot

Bert’s Entertainment Complex is the home away from home for many Detroit jazz and blues musicians. On any given Friday night you can find some of Detroit’s finest belting it out on the Jazz Room’s stage. Bert’s at Eastern Market is the one of the many passion projects of Bert Dearing. Detroit is a beautiful city with a beautifully complex past and Bert Dearing is a large part of Detroit’s past, present, and future. Bert Dearing grew up Detroit’s Black Bottom neighborhood. Black Bottom was a neighborhood in Detroit where Black American men and women could own and operate successful businesses before the 1950s. Black Bottom was known for its authentic jazz and blues scene and delicious cuisine. Bert wanted to create an atmosphere that mirrored the excellence and success of that neighborhood and so Bert’s Entertainment Complex was born.

 

Bert’s is a fantastic venue for a wedding and reception and we wanted to showcase that. Taking on some of the sultry jazz roots we wanted to create a scene that embraced the history of the club, but also allow some new, edgy, geometrical inspiration. This style shoot is heavily textured with shapes, colors, and styles all pointing to musical undertones.

 

Below are a few of our favorites:

Feel Good Friday

"Self-confidence is a super power. Once you start believing in yourself, magic starts happening."

It's finally Friday! Can you believe it!? We are jumping for joy here at Detroit Bridal House not only because it's Friday, but this Friday also begins our new campaign, Feel Good Friday! Obviously, Friday alone is exciting, but we'd like to add a little extra sparkle to the start of your weekend. Feel Good Friday will be all about what makes us feel confident, strong, and beautiful. Today's Feel Good Friday is dedicated to the diversity of size. I think we all can agree, shopping can sometimes be daunting, but shopping for a day a big as your wedding, but it doesn't have to be. You are unique, one of a kind and your wedding dress shopping experience should be too! Wedding dress shopping should be accessible for everyone, you should be able to worry if there is a designer that you love you should not have to worry if they carry gowns in your size. Often times we worry if bridal boutiques will have gowns that fit us. Will they be too big for me to really get a feel for how I look? Will they be too small for me to try on? Not to worry, here are a few gowns from designers who want to make sure that your experience is about you and is as fun, carefree, and creative as you are! 

Go to our Facebook today and tell us what makes you feel confident, strong, and beautiful.

Happy Feel Good Friday!!

Belle Isle Conservatory Shoot

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”
Audrey Hepburn

 

The Belle Isle Conservatory has been an integral piece of Detroit’s fabric since the early 1800s. With its lush gardens, golden sand beaches, and timeless architectural structures Belle Isle was the perfect place to showcase the beauty of Stella York Style 6182.

 

Richelle of Richelle Marie Photography not only captured the beauty of Belle Isle Conservatory, but she also captured every lovely detail of Stella York Style 6182.
