1. Dark Romance – A Romantic Woodland Wedding

    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. 

  2. A Hauntingly Moody Wedding

    Deliciously dark and all kinds of haunting, this moody wedding is perfection for those looking for something so much more!  Set in a mixed locale of RM Champagne + Nellcote, this haunting affair features two gorgeous brides and one dreamy groom.  Tables are extravagantly lined with burgundy floral plates intermixed with metallic chargers.  Tall pewter centerpieces tower from above, filled with a mix of peonies & ranunculus dotted by unripened green berries and purple foliage.  No moody wedding should be without a dark and mysterious chocolate cake, much like the scrumptious naked version that Toni Patisserie cooked up with jam sneaking out!  The rest is in the details like vintage veils, antique rings, candelabras and pillar candles to set the mood!  If you weren't in the spirit yet, this styled moody wedding will surely get you on your way!

  3. Harvest Style Halloween Dinner Party

    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!
