Signaling a revolutionary moment in pop culture, Disney-Marvel’s “Black Panther” is one of the hottest films right now. How can you not love the blockbuster film about T’Challa’s challenge to take his rightful place as the King of Wakanda and the Black Panther? The fight scenes are epic—it’s what makes a superhero movie; but, it’s the sub-story line that intrigued planner and designer, Tami Brown of Blush Weddings & Events by Tami B. “In the film, there’s clear chemistry between T’Challa and Nakia, Lupita Nyong’o’s character which sparked this dramatic wedding inspiration shoot! However, true Marvel Comic fans know that Black Panther marries Storm from X-Men,” said Brown. Can you imagine that walk down the aisle? This styled shoot takes us to Wakanda and right into such a wedding. We hope you enjoy this Black Panther wedding styled shoot today!
Mirrored columns topped with lush arrangements of white orchids, hydrangea, and roses flanked the aisle leading to the ceremony. The reception featured black linen atop a mix of a king’s table and rounds. Gold chairs and chargers added rich depth to the tablescape. The centerpiece commanded attention with high and low blooms of white florals intertwined with glass votives and candelabras. A Wakandian wedding would not be incomplete with the country’s natural resource, vibranium. Kisses of blue crystals in the floral arrangement and blue napkins made from Nigerian lace added to the drama. The team really brought Wakanda to this Maryland wedding venue!
Let’s talk about the killer black tie wedding attire! The queen-to-be wore a custom black trumpet silhouette adorned with a beaded corset bodice and a chiffon cape. The bouquet of white orchids added balance against her gown. A clever bride always leaves hints to her personally in the details of her wedding; go back through the images to find all the subtle nods to Storm’s squad, X-Men. In addition, the groom was outfitted in a black-on-black tuxedo befitting of the Black Panther. Patent leather shoes, of course, completed this regal look.
