Black and gold wedding inspiration
Hopefully everyone’s all prepped and inspired for a fabulous Halloween weekend! (If not, just scroll through this week’s blog posts for all the dark and moody vibes you need.) This fall wedding editorial by Ashley Cook Photography seemed like a most fitting note to kick off the festivities on. She wanted to give the shoot a dark feel without having to forgo some beautiful natural light at this abandoned mill locale. The black, gold, and purple tones and the sun-soaked tablescape balanced both ideas for sure.
How’s this for dark ‘n dreamy? Good Seed Floral Design has autumn romance down, yeah?
Ashley tells it, An old abandoned mill, black candles, black lace gown, a gold cake, dark watercolor paper goods with gold calligraphy, and gorgeous floral designs all came together perfectly for this styled shoot. This is a shoot I have been wanting to do for over three years, so I brought Becky Hart from Event Crush on and the whole thing really started to come together!
Fun fact, Ashley Cook Photography has another hidden talent: She created the bride’s unconventional tulle gown herself! Impressive.
Thanks to Ashley the folks below for serving up so many great ideas just in time for the weekend.
