Not everyone craves a cookie cutter wedding, nor should they. The stylish fashion forward bride is probably my absolute favorite. Color, is nothing to her but a vehicle for style. Black, white, fuchsia, they are all equal, what matters is how evocative one feels over another given its overall design. For those leaning toward a more moody & mysterious wedding style, something like this Gothic chic Utah wedding hits on all the right levels. With a hearty focus on wedding fashion, this sophisticated formal exudes atmospheric perfection. All starting with a black wedding dress from Bling It On Dress Rentals, details like sheer long sleeves accented by hand beaded detailing and a cafe au lait underlay are the touches that elevate & add intrigue. Dialing up the brooding romance allure, a bridal up-do just the right balance of undone polish, plays a heavy hand into the romance factor. The rest of this dark & dreamy Utah wedding is the sweeping landscapes that is Antelope Island, captured with beauty by wedding photographer Ashley Smith Photography.
You're not supposed to have favorites. They say each one should take an equal amount of you're heart. The simple truth is, thats never really the case is it? When Atlanta wedding photographer Christa O'Brien Photography's stunning fine art film noir moody boudoir shoot fell into my lap I felt a sense of connection I don't always feel. Don't get me wrong, I so very much love the various shoots we share, its not always though, they feel completely like... me. If I were to do a boudoir shoot today, I'd be beating down Christa's door... no joke, no fluff, solid truth. There are so many beautiful little things working in harmonious strength within this little moody boudoir that it is extraordinarily hard to deny its success. The location is utterly divine, offering the perfect blend of natural light, with a mood loving interior decor. A bouquet of the drippy hand-tied fashion in dark brooding hues by Beautiful/Wild Design accented with ribbon from The Poetry of Silk floats throughout. Simple, incredibly chic lingerie choices hug in all the right places creating the most enticing blend of reveal meets coy. Then you have Christa's eye coupled with hair & makeup artist Erin Ryser beauty details. Each and every photograph is stand alone stunning...
For those that are bold enough, adventurous enough, and most certainly open-minded enough, there is a whole other world to be had when it comes to styling your wedding. Wedding photographers The Byrd Sisters Films teamed up with Alexis Solano Events to create a gorgeously dark and romantic woodland wedding that will leave your head swooning! Tucked away into the wooded hills of Malibu Phoenix, like a special little secret, the team of local wedding pros turned an otherwise masculine color palette on its head into a thing of glorious beauty. While the sweetheart table, covered in mood blooms accented by a regal place setting is certainly repeat worthy, its all about the attention grabbing desserts for me. Whats a dark romantic woodland wedding without an incredibly pin worthy black wedding cake?? What could one pair with such a beauty, why black 'candied' apples of course! From the lusciously dark photography to the moody chic styling, I dare you not to covet this dark romance.

No Goddess would ever feel quite right without a finishing touch like the ever so Delicate Lauren Leaf Bandeaux by Jennifer Behr to dot her hair.
