An Elegant, Modern Wedding at Insignia Steakhouse in Smithtown, New York

For Michelle Furrs (30 and a digital project manager for Ralph Lauren) and Adam Kornelli (29 and an architect), the color and design scheme for their modern wedding was inspired by the earliest concepts for their save-the-dates and invitations. The sleek and clean look of gold on black became the focus point for planning. From the white tablecloths contrasting with black vases at the reception to the bridal party's all-black outfit selections, the aesthetics were elegant and chic. Even the geometric pattern featured on their wedding invitations made other appearances throughout the wedding: place cards, table numbers, menus and cake design remained consistent. Both the ceremony and reception took place at Insignia Steakhouse in Smithtown, New York. The restaurant had a separate room that Michelle and Adam outfitted with tall black vases along the aisle and branches and vines at the altar for an intimate ceremony. Using the modern decor of the restaurant's dining space as a backdrop for the minimalist design, the space's original lighting fixtures and black-and-white decorations elevated the elegance. —Allie Volpe
