Morticia Addams once lovingly said to her husband Gomez, “You’re dearer to me than all the bats in all the caves in the world.”
We’ll admit, in some freakishly romantic way, Morticia + Gomez Addams are total #relationshipgoals. So, we completely understand why Jessica from Whim + Willow Photo was searching for inspiration this Halloween, and found it in one of the greatest, unconventional love stories of all time.
Even as Morticia snips rose heads with hatred, we’re still pulling fun, edgy inspiration from today’s goth editorial. Without being too overly costume-y, Whim + Willow (and co.) really managed to style a scene that modern couples could still draw lots of creativity from. From the bed of nails to the coffin-shaped ceremony alter, this inspo is sure to get you spooked + sparked!
Bed of Nails
A grim, but chic, display of these rad paper goods, by The Paperie by Aman, laying on a bed of nails. Torturously creative!
A Ceremony To Die For
A custom coffin-shaped ceremony arch, of course.
We love the pattern of Gomez’s jacket paired with that creepy boutonniere!
I’ll Follow You Into The Dark
Thorn Floral clearly had all kinds of dreadful fun with these moody florals! And we love that Morticia’s prize carnivorous plant, Cleopatra, wasn’t forgotten.
Another Morticia Addams line we love, “Don’t torture yourself Gomez. That’s my job.”
Black Wedding Cake
Hello Sugar TO must know that we’re obsessed with black wedding cakes. This artful design is organic + modern, and we love the glass terrarium tier!
Here’s hoping for love like Morticia + Gomez – in this life and the next. Happy Halloween from GWS!
