‘Til Death Do Us Party- A Halloween Inspired Wedding

'til death'

do us party

Styled Shoot
a Modern take on a halloween inspired wedding

Cassandra Daye Photography and Katie Kauffmann, from Cheer and Dear, paired up to plan and execute this beautiful styled shoot, in which they chose to include many talented Brooklyn vendors.  They took inspiration from the ‘Day of the Dead’ along with the Mexican roots of the Gran Electrica, and mixed those elements with the whimsical carousel and surrounding iconic DUMBO areas to bring forth the vision of “Til Death Do us Part(y)”. By doing so, they were able to create a chic take on a Halloween Inspired Wedding without using over the top decorations and makeup.

'Til Death Do Us Party- A Halloween Inspired Wedding
the color palette

…came to life by merging Cassandra’s moody, saturated photography with Katie’s colorful and classic design aesthetic. By mixing these two themes along with some ‘Day of the Dead’ flare, they landed on something whimsical, colorful and a little bit “dark”. In my opinion, a fresh new take that made the perfect palette for a modern Halloween inspired wedding

The beautiful bride wore custom fringe earrings (that are now an ONLINE EXCLUSIVE style) and the ethereal SELENE veil. The ring was shown in a beautiful rust colored diamond ring box which just happened to match the earrings and color palette perfectly. Click on the below photos to shop these accessories!

Moody Parisian Wedding Inspiration

Styled Shoot
a moody Parisian Wedding 

style was envisioned for this beautiful styled shoot. We wanted to give the “big wedding feel” but do it in an intimate way where the couple can focus on each other. We started the day off with an intimate ceremony space, then transitioned to the sweetheart table for dinner, and between some dancing and cake, they finish the day with a drink or two at the craft cocktail bar.

'coup de foudre'

A MOODY ROMANTIC STYLED SHOOT THAT IS TRULY

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT.

The color

scheme plays on the classic Parisian  Wedding style with moodier and richer tones. With the industrial feel of the grand venue, we added feminine, delicate decor with rich florals that compliments the classic soft Parisian style but adds a modern, moody twist. The bride is wearing a wedding gown from Luxx Nova designed in Europe alongside handcrafted bridal accessories from Alyson Nicole hand crafted in Brooklyn, New York.

Elegant Beach Elopement

Wisconsin,

Despite its tendency to sit quietly as “America’s Dairyland,” is a state that is incredibly special. The land flows effortlessly from fields of golden wheat to breathtaking rock formations, from rolling green hills to waterfalls; and while its neighbor claims the nickname of “Land of the Lakes,” Wisconsin actually hosts a few thousand more. For brides and grooms who dream of a quiet vow ceremony against a backdrop of waves and gulls, there are two Great Lakes in particular that can claim to be as large as some seas. We wanted to showcase the pristine beauty of Lake Michigan with this styled beach elopement, so we chose a location just ten minutes outside of Milwaukee that is rich in views and boasts over 800 feet of sandy shoreline.

'She loved the sea.

She liked the sharp
salty smell of the air,
and the vastness
of the horizons
bounded only by a vault
of azure sky above.

It made her feel small,
but free as well.’
―George R.R. Martin

We kept the details elegant and minimal,

using what a bride and groom would likely bring to the shores themselves for a very intimate setting. The colorful and beautifully untamed florals provided by Vy’s Floral Design out of Chicago added the perfect accent for a free-spirited beach elopement. Our bride wore a flowing, ombré MinkMaids gown, paired with makeup that highlighted her features with a soft touch. Quartz bridal accessories completed the raw, simple elegance of her look, and our groom kept his own look natural and effortless. To highlight the tones of the water and surrounding vistas, our colors were organized around soft blues, blue-tinted greens, and white, with a touch of the delicate blush of a beach sunset.

Modern Winter Wedding Inspiration

Modern Winter Wedding Inspiration

Its been over a year since this lovely winter wedding styled shoot was published on Artfully Wed and The Reverie Gallery, but I just couldn’t help myself… I had to share this lovely collaboration with you, again! Working on this shoot was just an amazing experience filled with wonderfully talented vendors and incredible details that will spark inspiration for any bride or groom planning a winter wedding.

This stunning and modern affair was planned by Details By Chelsea Ann and captured by For The Love Photography. The color palette includes bold rich colors with a pop of citrus which brings a whole new look to a winter theme. The beautiful wedding invitation suite and calligraphy was provided by Eliza Gwendalyn and brought extra originality to this shoot. The multi-tiered cake by Cake Heights was accented with a gorgeous edible flower and lace-like details, almost too good to eat!

I styled the beautiful bride in a handmade sheath wedding dress with a plunging neckline that had delicate lace detailing, a full open back, and a removable Swarovski crystal embellished cape. The dress was accented with crystal embellished illusion gloves, the bold Lux crystal earrings, the head-turning Starling Quartz tiara, a beautiful wire wrapped Cyrene quartz pendant, and the oh-so-lovely shoes by Emmy London. Her look was completed with hair by Erica Starr and flawless makeup by Kiki Takos!

The groom wore a tux by the Black Tux accented with a handmade tie and matching pocket square by Alyson Nicole, a boutonnière accented with a wire wrapped quartz pendant, and citrus colored alligator cuff links.

Drooling over the details already? But, wait! There’s more…

From For the Love PhotographyDetails by Chelsea Ann set out to create a glamorous, modern winter wedding inspiration shoot with a palette of soft winter whites, surprisingly paired with bold pops of citrus and deep winter tones. To create a dreamy, romantic setting, she mixed textures to transform a clean loft into an intimate space where guests would want to linger. Ice Chiavari chairs surround a rosette draped table, while a private oasis for the couple with a sheepskin rug, Lucite tables, and a tufted settee offer respite to indulge in a citrus and white sangria cocktail. An oversized garland comprised of pine, eucalyptus, kumquats, anemone and ranunculus created a focus point on the monochromatic table scape.

Guests find their seats by the hand calligraphed cards tacked on the custom designed marshmallow pin board. The custom fine art invitation suite by Eliza Gwendalyn set the tone, combining a modern typeface delicately letterpress printed on Crane Lettra paper with her signature calligraphy style in a vibrant orange ink. As guests exit through a crystal curtain with dangling hot chocolate favors, hand lettered notes remind them that “love is brewing.” This intimate, modern loft affair was captured by For the Love Photography. Proving that modern can still be romantic and dreamy, this lovely shoot brings winter wedding inspiration to life with a citrus twist.

We felt that wedding blogs and magazines are so focused on spring and summer weddings, and winter weddings tended to be kitschy or holiday focused. We were inspired by a modern day Elsa from Frozen, who we imagined would have eloped in an intimate loft affair in Manhattan but added a little brightness to the cold winter palette with accents of citrus. Of course, our Elsa glammed it up with deep berry lips and an elegant, hand sewn gown but kept her crystal tiara and Swarovski studded accessories and cape. It was so fun as a photographer to photograph such a dream inspiration shoot.

It was definitely a dream shoot to participate in and THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this happen. Now, take a look, pin some of the lovely details on Pinterest, and just get inspired!
