Fun fact, my daughter was born in Sleepy Hollow New York! This fun little relationship has reignited my excitment for Halloween, specifically the jovial lighthearted side to the holiday. My husband and I agreed that each year we would show her the passion and delightful spirit that surrounds Halloween. Hosting a Halloween dinner party falls perfectly inline with that! Molly Mckinley Designs teamed up with the amazing Rustic White Photography at the The Foundry at Puritan Mill to create a vibrant Halloween dinner party that plays on the chic whimsical side of things. The result is a colorful tablescape dotted with big bold blooms, shapely gourds, towering black candles and an elegant modern place setting. Food is another wonderful opportunity to not just create a epicurean experience that delights, but to add gorgeous scenery to any event like the scrumptious Butternut Squash Hummus. If you're looking to host a Halloween dinner party, be sure to take in Molly McKinley's 10 Tips, which will help you pull off an elevated affair that is all about the wonder!
One of my absolutely favorite places to look for wedding inspiration are places that are anything but wedding related. There is something so refreshing about looking outside of a particular genera, essentially seeing how the other half lives if you will. Elements in women's style such as hair and makeup can be transported from any glossy page, simply insert occasion/event here. Even attire, like the gorgeous dark floral beauties here, speak to occasions such as bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, engagement photos and more. Love a gorgeous lip, cant get enough of a certain curl, who cares under what pretense you find that inspiration, all that matters IS that your being inspired. When Colors of Freedom from Passionate Wedding Photography came my way I was down right giddy. Fresh, bold editorial yumminess that oozed style perfection. Women's fashion is all about style and is unique as it is organic in evolution. This little editorial spread features 5 moody dark floral loving looks that are all kinds of style everything. While the dresses are divine, its the unapologetic bold red lip and wind loving pencil perfect locks that I cant get enough of. The making to any great style is one that captures perfection all while harnessing effortless ease, like you didnt care, but we know you soooo did and we love you for it.
Perhaps it's because I grew up in the steel city, surrounded by endless warehouse giants, or maybe it's because I've spent the last 16 years in the urban wiles of NYC... Whatever it is, I have a special place in my heart for gorgeous loft industrial weddings. There is just something about the cavernous yet wondrously airy blank slates that they offer. When coupled with just the right touch of imagination, these hidden locales can truly sing. Hoping to inject the same sense of industrial wedding wonder, a team of Ohio wedding pros headed to the event space at Rustbelt Coffee with the goal of transforming the event space into one of elegant design. Details like sleek black ghost chairs, custom-made marble calligraphy place cards, & wispy branch centerpieces standing tall against old school loft windows are just a few touches that dial up the elegance. To bring this beauty to life, Ohio wedding photographer Captured by Hannah Photography does an eloquent job of capturing each moment in all sorts of dark, moody, artful goodness. There is much to love here, I suspect you'll enjoy discovering each little hidden treasure!
