Every year there are far too many black cats surrendered or abandoned at shelters because people still stigmatize them as being bad luck. Not only is that way of thinking incredibly harmful to this sweet kitty population, but it's also just absurd (this is one superstition you can definitely let go of!). Black cats do not need to hold the key to your luck.. but maybe your heart!! They want, need, and deserve love just like everyone else, which is why this awesome team of wedding vendors decided to have a little fun and style a wedding shoot that highlights these charismatic black cats and the need to take a chance on love!
Here are just a handful (paw-ful?!) of reasons why, if you're considering making a commitment to give a kitty a fur-ever home, you should take another look at an all black cat this season!
1. They're ready to paw-rty!!
This wedding inspiration photoshoot used moody and iridescent styles to highlight the sweet black cats of this Annapolis cat cafe, Kittens in Cups! And the feline talent was ready to work (and play!) just as much as this adorable real life couple, Shannon and Mowgli!
2. They will purrfectly complement your outfits!
A little black fur just means you're reminded of their love all day long! And why not keep that little reminder in your pocket too with this adorable pocket square from The Sweetest Fern!
3. They can rock matching bridal jewels or floral collar!
Black cats can win best-dressed-guests at your wedding with beautiful jeweled collars from J'Adorn Designs, matching your bridal bracelet, or a flower collar by Rogue Petal Co.! Take your own style up a notch with a gorgeous engagement ring like this one from St John's Jewelers by Hannah Blount Design!
4. They add that special something to your stamps!
PURRsonalize your wedding invitation stamps with a little watercolor version of your cat, like these by From Pixels, to Quill!
5. You can have your cake and eat (treats) too!
Not ready to share a bite of your delicious wedding cake (like this one from Bramble Baking Co)?! How about some sweet heart-shaped cat treats instead?! They'll be ready to pop open more cat wine to celebrate!
6. Black goes with everything, so they'll look good against any color scheme!
Don't these beautiful cats look fierce? & The best way to show off every wedding color scheme has to be with an an iridescent backdrop like this one from The Darling Myth! Meeeeeowwww
7. & They'll even help you clean up at the end of the day... *knocks decor off tables*
