With Halloween being mere days away, we just had to share this gorgeous (and mysterious) harvest editorial dreamt up by Adrienne from The Bloom Of Time and photographed by Katie Pritchard! Adrienne shares, As we sank into October, its moodiness and its languid beauty, we imagined a Halloween-inspired shoot infused with many soft autumn shades, lighthearted fashion, and a sense of dark fun. Carbon Canyon Park with its imposing redwood trees lent itself to our purpose – quiet, peaceful, and slightly spooky.
Her design ideas would beautifully translate to an Autumn or Halloween wedding. She incorporated heirloom gourds, painted pumpkins, and a whimsical floral installation of colorful ribbons and yards of garland unraveling from a birch pole to bring her enchanted vision together…
We love this installment for a ceremony backdrop! And it looks especially inviting with autumn-hued blooms and romantic lantern lighting.
Alex of Goodheart Design hand-lettered this sweet sentiment, along with the calligraphed matte black pumpkins.
We LOVE this bridal look for the girl who wants something a little bit different. The black tulle skirt is from Dark Pony Designs, paired with a bell-sleeved white lace top (an LC by Lauren Conrad from Kohl’s find). Snag a similar look in our shopping guide below:
Adrienne says, Sweet Kacy’s rich creations – a chocolate drip cake, Oreo French macarons, and pecan brownies – added sensory layers of sweetness.
We love love this flower-filled pumpkin! Wouldn’t it be the most gorgeous Thanksgiving tablescape centerpiece?!
And the sultry, shadowy makeup by Colbie Wilson, paired with a delicate flower halo, helped futher convey the playful, mysterious mood that the team was so inspired by.
Adrienne closes with, The sun went down as we finished the shoot, giving our work a dusky, surreal quality. An autumn afternoon well spent.
Thanks so much to the talented team below for sharing this gorgeous editorial with us today! It’s really not too late to throw a little last-minute soirée with your girls on Saturday night, and steal a few sweet ideas from this feature!
