This styled shoot was over a year in the making! After a few reschedules due to Covid, it finally became a reality! From moody florals to mixtures of prints and textures, a hanging cake installation, and ending the shoot in an over 100 year old cemetery, in the middle of nowhere… our attention was piqued! This Beetlejuice-inspired shoot was a total labor of love and what perfect timing with the confirmation that a Beetlejuice sequel is in the works!
Designer + Florist Katy Doersam shared that this styled shoot was truly a labor of love! “When choosing Beetlejuice as the inspiration, I was really wanting to portray Halloween in a moody but modern way. I was drawn to the stripes of Beetlejuice’s infamous suit and wanted to add those in subtle, accent elements.”
This shoot was captured effortlessly by the talented Esther Bloom Photography and we can’t wait for you to see all the spooky scary inspiration!!
You’re Invited to this Spooky Celebration!
Loving this black and white invitation suite by Places + Pine!
By no means… This is not your typical orange and black Halloween vibe. Black and white play such a huge element in this shoot to reflect even the fun 90’s Art Deco style that’s shown throughout the house in the Beetlejuice film.
We love how this inspiration nods to Halloween in the most subtle ways!
You already know we are HUGE fans of personalized cocktails for your wedding day! It is such a fun way to tie in your theme or hints to the couple’s personal lives!
Black and White, Baby
Oh the DRAMA! …Plus we LOVE a frilly ball gown moment. This fantastic gown is by Tarik Ediz.
Certainly not your average wedding cake!
Not only did this cake from Unforgettable Cakes serve as a delicious treat…but was also part of the day’s decor! Isn’t this hanging cake installation the coolest thing you’ve ever seen?!
The Stylish Couple
Still drooling over this gown? We created a round-up of our favorite princess-styled wedding dresses for you!
Who needs a veil when you could have a tulle boa!!
This velvet blazer from Theory and cool leather pants from 7 For All Mankind truly complimented the day’s theme. And the wedding day makeup by Brittany Woolard is absolutely perfect. Natural, but with a hint of pizazz (peep the glittery inner eye!!)
The Reception of our Dreams
This sweetheart table couldn’t be more fitting! With a standout floral tablecloth with the moodiest floral arrangements and candlestick details, it’s moody and hauntingly gorgeous!
From Katy Doersam, “I then wanted to pull in some snake accents, since there is a small scene with a sand snake as the villain. So you will see snakes as the napkin rings, on the custom drink stirrers, and even on the bride’s nails!!”
It was super important to the team to include key elements from the movie like the “Handbook For The Recently Deceased” book and the Polaroid ghost photo!
Happily Ever After
One word: BREATHTAKING!
We love this autumn wedding inspiration for any moody couple who wants to stray from the typical wedding day designs and traditions! Thank you to this creative team for sharing this masterpiece with GWS and we hope you guys are as obsessed with the results as we are!
