Sleepy Hollow Wedding Inspiration

sleepy hollow inspired wedding

We’re definitely starting to get in the Halloween spirit, so today’s fun editorial, based on the story of Sleepy Hollow is a perfect thing for this afternoon! With lots of rich colors, unique details + a straight up amazing black wedding dress, we have to say, we really love how Lukas & Suzy VanDykeHarmony Creative Studio, and Heirloom Design House brought this dark + mysterious tale to life…

From Margaux of Harmony Creative StudioInspired by both the classic Washington Irving short story, and the new romantic and bold FOX television show, our Sleepy Hollow themed wedding shoot was created out of a love for all things hauntingly beautiful. We set out to create a more sophisticated and refined Halloween inspired shoot. Wanting to steer clear of the usual scary elements and orange and purple colors, we decided to go with a more natural theme, which really embraced our color palette of wine, rust, burgundy, forest green, bronze and black. Elements such as branches, twigs, leaves, fruit and bark were utilized to callback to the natural elements Irving described so beautifully in his short story, and which play such a large part in the supernatural elements of the new television show.

Intimate Foggy Oceanfront Wedding: Kristin + Chris

Oregon ocean wedding

You all caught Shannon + John’s intimate foggy mountain wedding that we shared last Friday, right? Well, today we have another gorgeous, foggy celebration to share – Kristin + Chris’ intimate coastal Oregon vow exchange! For this laid back duo, tradition wasn’t something they were all too worried about. Case in point: their wedding was a super relaxed, two-day event. It all started with a short, sweet and very intimate oceanfront ceremony on day one, followed by a personalized celebration in downtown Portland on day two. We also have to add that these guys made sure to allow for plenty of time for portraits with their awesome photographer, Bethany Small, which you’ll see in a sec was a very good idea!

Nicole Miller wedding dress

We’re obsessed with Kristin’s stunning, lace Nicole Miller dress which she purchased from The English Department. That crystal sash is a total dream!

Our memories from the day included seeing each other's attire for the first time and the photo session with our besties (bridal party). We also enjoyed the photo session on the beach and Cape Kiwanda after the ceremony.
