At first blush, today's incredible moody wedding inspiration might seem out of place. However, its when you look more closely into it, that you realize how absolutely perfect it is! I always preach the beauty to weddings that are well outside the cookie cutter norm. This coven inspired moody wedding inspiration comes via the mind meld of Laura Beck Photography + Ashley Marie Photography. Taking cues from those that buck tradition, this styled shoot is all about the style, the details and the attitude. From sultry body hugging black dresses, bold makeup choices that highlight striking eyes and lush lips, to a location that alone is a wedding decor dream, there is plenty to get inspired by. Honoring the nature drawing coven world, earthy details are on display from elements like dried botanicals to ancient texts. Articulating a theme like this into a moody wedding works flawlessly when you focus on fashion choices true to the vibe, bold choices and one hell of a location!
Today's feature from South Carolina florist and wedding designer Culpepper Designs is pretty much a checklist for what I am loving these days. Gorgeous white washed industrial locale, generous overflowing floral arrangements topped heavy with lush greens, a slightly boho feel, all done with a chic refined hand! Shoot on location by the artful eye of wedding photographer Anna Duncan Photography at Southern Bleachery, the team crafted a world of sophistication in an eco-chic palette of mixed greens, soft ivory with dashes of pink. A rustic wood table served as a focal point, set with a tablescape that drew on gold detailing in the form of candle sticks, trays and metal work pieces intermixed with high and low centerpieces, giving the table the perfect amount of drama. Gold chargers and flatware for each place setting perfectly played off the dreamy tablescape while handcrafted wood Mr & Mrs signs complimented the stately rustic wood table. Hair & Makeup Artist Cotton Rouge did a gorgeous job giving each girl a unique yet wonderfully cohesive look that played up the modern boho feel of the open back wedding dresses and gorgeous 2 piece wedding dress creation. The shoot overall is simply beyond, something I know I can't wait to pin every moment of and savor!

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.

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!
