We are celebrating the dark and moodier side of October 31st with love. Our Halloween 2.0 inspired Dark Romance Content Day was a luxurious, glamorous and gorgeous non traditional wedding inspiration collaboration.
Elegant, dark, romantic, and mysterious – are just some of the words to describe this gorgeous shoot. The perfect venue came to mind for this shoot- The Agora Grand Event Center in Lewiston, Maine. From the moody castle-like setting, high in the clouds ceilings, timeless stained glass windows, breathtaking gold arbor and throne chairs to the stunning purple, red, orange and black florals- this seamless, gorgeous collaboration is sure to inspire your next Halloween wedding event...
The inspiration behind this content day was to combine a non traditional dark and moody theme and romance, bringing a elegant and modern love story.
Better Borrowed and More styled the head table with enchanted antique gold candlesticks, black candles and a 4-tier candle holder for the middle of the table. Wind and Willow Wedding tied in the whole table with a terracotta table runner.
The gorgeous florals by Black Iris Floral Designs created stunning bouquets that featured fall tones in ruby, garnet, purple, sage and blush. One of the Halloween Inspired bouquets feature a jeweled spider. The florist also created an amazing birdcage veil for one of the Skelton brides as well as a stunning hand piece for the other Skelton bride. The florals were the perfect combination of moody, edgy, dark, mysterious and romantic.
The dreamy geode crystal cake by Maine Cakes by Design was simply gorgeous- adding that WOW factor and tying in the whole mystical vibe.
In a bold choice, three of our brides wore black. Two brides featured more of short and fun dresses while one of the brides wore a full floor length gown with a flared rounded train. The black dresses against the stained glass windows of deep burgundy, lavender and golden hues evoked a rich and enchanted tone.
The detail table incorporated vintage trinkets, jewelry by Creaser Jewelry, super trendy beard oil bottles by Bearded Brigade with the perfect skull logo to match the theme, elegant little spell bottles and a full skeleton stationery set by the amazing Cust Creations Boutique.
Make up was provided by All Things Beauty by Samantha Paige and added just the right amount of glimmer and enchantment. All the curls and elegant hair designs by Janaye Elizabeth completed all the bridal looks. The Skeleton make up by Samantha was also amazing. It was the perfect combination of spooky and elegant all combined into one look. The Skeleton Brides were the perfect addition to any Halloween wedding.
Kick off your shoes and “Till Death Do Us Party” seemed to be a fitting theme for the day as Halloween tunes played though out the venue and an amazing photo booth was set up by Love and Long Prosper Photography. The greenery back drop with the LED light set the mood to party and have fun.
It is always easy to make safe choices but this content day we wanted to go out of the box and demonstrate how big and bold choices can still be stunning and classic.
