Halloween Styled Wedding in the Woods
Updated: Oct 31, 2018
Happy Halloween everyone, we have some spooktacular news! We are so excited to announce that this styled shoot has been published on Wedding Chicks today. Can someone seriously pinch us?
When Angie and Marko Photography first reached out to us about being a part of this project, we knew we couldn’t pass it up. Besides the fact that we absolutely love Halloween, we have an immense passion for set design and styling. This was one of those eclectic shoots we knew we could go wild with!
This Wiccan binding ceremony was inspired by both the modern witch and a twist of the 1800's Salem witch era. It was a rainy and overcast morning, the ideal weather for the look we were going for. We transported hundreds of furniture, decor and props into the forest, all to create some inspiration that we hope our brides and loved ones find truly magical.
As you walked through the gloomy woods and arrived at this celebration, a striking vintage sign welcomed guests with a binding ceremony spell. The ceremony took place in a sea of trees with draping moss, creating a one of a kind whimsical yet gothic setting. Our 6ft tall custom candelabras were welded to line the isle for this scene as dozens of lit candles set the romantic mood.
Rich jewel tones and moody floral arrangements by Fern & Curl covered the tablescape. A rustic walnut 8ft farm table was styled with a flowing wine-colored runner, brass accents and our two victorian velvet emerald chairs. The blue candles in the Wiccan faith represent fidelity, good fortune and harmony, everything you want in a marriage. Dry ice created a low falling fog effect and really gave it a spooky yet elegant look. Gold ornate silverware, gold chargers and black plates were used for each setting. To tie it all in, floral rings hovered above the dining table.
Stepping into the lounge area felt like walking into a witch’s lair. A towering tree covered in moss served as the dramatic backdrop. Jewel toned velvet seating, distressed antique tables and a vintage area rug was surrounded with a variety of props and the tiniest of unique details including a gold bird cage, farm wood shelf filled with old books, bottles, spells and potions. It was truly a magical spot to just sit back and relax with the enchanting cocktails that were crafted by Two Chicks and a Pot catering.
The Wicked Dessert bar by Sweet Miss V's was truly enchanting. It featured Poisoned Apple Bites, Witch's Cauldron Cupcakes, Love Spell Cookies and Witch's Brew Triffle and for the main dessert we had a Black Velvet Cake made out of Dark Chocolate & Blood Red Swiss Meringue Buttercream.
