Hello, November! We’re welcoming you with open arms + cozy blankets. Getting us in the mood for the fall-to-winter shift, Alixann Loosle Photography + Leslie Dawn Events teamed up for this deliciously dark editorial. For the couple that adores all things moody with a bit of edge, we have a feeling you’ll be absolutely smitten by this bold + romantic scene.
The color mauve is taking main stage, with a smattering of matte accents and sumptuous velvet. Do you and your love have a taste for the dark side? Read on to find out how to incorporate it in the most elegant ways possible:
To start off, moody florals EVERYWHERE. Whether you’re thinking about this design scheme for your wedding or your home—rich and lush florals set on a backdrop of black (or any other dark color) make a serious statement. I mean, take a look at how gorgeous the minimal invitation suite by Foil and Ink, especially when it’s offset by the floral photos.
For the Natalie Wynn Design gown, it was all about surprising texture, as seen with the polka dot fabric and dainty floral embellishments.
Lookin’ so SHARP! To tie in the groom’s dark suit, The Potted Pansy added dark florals and sumptuous ribbon to the bouquet.
The Floral Room + Tablescape
And that floral room at Finca—sooooo cool!
As the backdrop for the room was already eye-catching, the team kept the tablescape pared down to just the essentials: velvet linen, black flatware, and a striking centerpiece.
Doesn’t this look so luxe?! Those place cards are by Letters to You.
Mauve, dusty rose, blush pink…whatever those hues are, we LOVE them! And how cool is that cake by Flour and Flourish? Digging the tile design.
