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.

I've got a serious soft spot for non-traditional wedding dresses. When this little styled Victorian bridal treat landed in my inbox, complete with a gorgeously fashion forward bride donning a black wedding dress, I was sold! The team of Texas wedding photographer Endless Exposures Photography, event designer Mementos Events & Design and florist Monica's Brides put together the perfect romantic Victorian bridal in the urban loft like Fill In the Blank Studio. To evoke the true Victorian spirit, the team chose the most delicious black wedding dress, a gown from Fiancee Bridal Boutique, which featured a pink under layer topped by hand sewn black lace. To further the Victorian look and feel, a black bridal headpiece featuring a petite birdcage veil was selected as the to evoke a modern take on a Victorian feel! To match the look brought forth by the stunning black wedding dress, the team opted to work with a mix of textures when it came to the wedding decor, in the form of a glitter highlighted tablescape. Featuring a floor length black sequin tablecloth, florals were placed in crystal both short and tall, creating the perfect light reflecting balance! The last piece to the Victorian bridal was a stunning three tier wedding cake from Shazdeh Cakes that featured perfectly crafted lace like applique, a detail that...

Everyone's definition of a romantic setting varies slightly, but my word it is hard to argue with a gorgeous industrial loft setting like the one at Seattle's own Axis Pioneer Square! Spearheaded by the owner of Seattle's new specialty rental company Fanciful Rentals, a romantic candle lite loft wedding was crafted featuring a mix of antique furniture and decor. Working with a strong wedding color palette of blush, red & ivory, vintage blue floral china and a steel grey linen were choosen as the perfect counterbalance to soften. Playing off the blue floral found in the table setting, a highlight to the loft wedding design was a light beige love seat lounge accented by 2 gorgeous stately toile pillows! As if details like taper candles and vintage champagne flutes filled with rose champagne weren't enough, the team really embodied romance for this styled loft wedding utilizing a lace top BHLDN wedding dress and understated accessories. The last piece to the puzzle, tying the loft wedding together, were the bold florals from Verde & Co. that were equal parts fresh and modern. The beauty to a loft wedding is how the space can transform into just about anything you dream up. Easily one of the most versatile locales, its no wonder that these urban wedding venues are such a prize!
