Happy Halloween, everyone! Inspired by the Greek mythology of Hades + Persephone, the team behind today’s Halloween wedding inspiration staged an elegant dinner filled with design elements true to the tale and a gorgeous, aphotic color palette. Photographed by Kristen Booth + styled by Simply Sera Events, this shoot is sure to get you in the Halloween spirit with all of it’s dark + moody details! And I’m pretty head over heels for the stunning, black Tadashi Shoji dress – it would be such a fab choice for a bold + daring bride! :) For those of you who don’t know much about Greek Mythology, here’s a snippet of the story of Hades + Persephone from Sera:
Hades is the god of the underworld who kidnapped Persephone, the goddess of vegetation to be his queen. She would have been able to return to the living but because she ate a few pomegranate seeds in the underworld, she must reign as Hade’s queen in the underworld during parts of the year.
Loving all the shades of burgundy + red in the beautiful bouquet by City Flower LA!
A detailed synopsis of the story was beautifully written by Calligraphy Katrina on a black tea-length card stock paper with gold ink
And how gorgeous are the fragments of gold used throughout the tablescape? The ornate chargers + flatware are so, so pretty.
Big thanks to the creatives below for sharing their talents with us today!
