1. Elegantly Moody Classic Vintage Bridals At Biltmore Village Inn

    I love a bit of drama and this classic vintage bridal at Biltmore Village Inn beautifully embodies just that! Wanting to work with something a bit more sensual, the team opted for a boudoir come bridal portrait session captured by Audrey Goforth Photography, tucked into one of the stately rooms at the inn. Playing off the historic bed & breakfast interior, the a deep moody palette was brought to life centered around berry rich hued florals, styled by Flowers by Larry. In order to inject a fresh modern take on the vintage bridal style, a stunning bead work lace top wedding dress from Wildflower Bridal served as the centerpiece, a departure from the more common strapless gowns we see all too often. A long Rapunzel-couture inspired braid from Love, Daisy and classic red-lip look by Beauty by Carisse amped up the overall look and feel, while a watercolor calligraphy invitation suite from Long Village Studio & wedding cake from Tiffany's Baking Co. added soft feminine touches. The result is a timeless look that is every bit classic and vintage as it is modern!

  2. Fairy Tale Inspired Moody Bridal Style At Flora Flowershop

    When something dark and dreamy comes my way I always get a little more excited. Weddings are always thought of as white, bright, and full tilt classic storybook. The problem is that that particular mindset only truly appeals to a selection of bride, not everyone. I am delighted to be able to share a bridal session that features wonderfully moody bridal style that is inspired by a fairy tale with a bit of edge photographed by Magdalene Photography. This beauty is shoot on location at the secret garden like oasis of Flora Flowershop in Door County, Wisconsin. Featuring a voluminous Mori Lee wedding dress from I Do Bridal of sparkling tulle, our bride begins her journey in a gathered cathedral veil crafted to create a hair fascinator like effect. As the shoot progresses, our bride trades in her more formal veil for a wild and free organic floral crown. Her loose flowing locks and darker makeup by A&A Artistry, pick up on the more sultry dramatic cues, giving us relief from the more storied white weddings we see so often. This moody bridal session is a delight, something I know will appeal to all brides looking for an alternative to the standard weddings we see each day.

  3. Gorgeously Moody Bridal Style Inspired By ‘La Primavere’ by Alphonse Mucha

    Gorgeous florals plus wonderfully dreamy moody photography is practically my kryptonite. Dial in the most perfect hair & makeup, a dewy faced model and body skimming wedding dresses into almost hauntingly dreamy bridal style and well... just consider me down for the count into wedding oblivion! Storyboard Wedding fave & resident beauty expert, New York City hair & makeup artist Beauty by Eden Di Bianco recently teamed up with New York wedding photographer Claudia McDade to breathe some life into a late spring bridal style session that was deeply inspired by the Art Nouveau stylings inspired by 'La Primavere' by Alphonse Mucha. To start with, generous large blossom floral crowns were constructed by New York City florist Aurora Botanica in a mix of deeply moody hues from purple, coral and minty hellebores. Each arrangement is carefully crafted to emphasize the beauty of each bloom all while playing the perfect supporting role to every other aspect of the overall look. To capture the essence that is Art Nouveau, Eden focused on perfecting a creamy, natural complexion without hard contouring and romantic but simple hair with texture and movement, a look that served to enhance fawn like Delaney's naturally soft beauty. The most perfect thing about bridal style is how personal you...

  4. Urban Garden Wedding At Articulture In Austin Texas

    If you're anything like me you have a wide appreciation of mixed styles. Today's styled shoot from Austin wedding photographer Twin Lens Weddings delves deep into a mix of two styles: urban industrial meets garden. I love the idea of this urban garden wedding with its blend of raw and rough meets feminine & green. The setting for this garden wedding could not be more of a perfect stage, Austin's own Articulture. Rather then try to hide or disguise their surroundings the team embraced their gravel patio flooring, adding strong earthy elements in the form of a raw wood slice table, grassy quiet spots and drippy florals. Eloquent design choices were made for the tablescape, one that featured a mix of petite floral and gold rim china, accented by gold flatware and etched crystal glassware. A mix of seeded eucalyptus, amaranthus and coral peonies dressed the raw wood table, while petite pies brought the perfect down home feel. Taking a design note from the urban garden wedding, an anti-floral crown was woven into the bride's side swept updo, giving that perfect garden chic feel.
