If I’m being honest, “elegance” isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when I think of a Halloween shoot. But thanks to the style-driven vision of Heather Benge Events, we’re proving this spooky-scary holiday can lend some pretty gorgeous inspiration for the Big Day and beyond. F. Dellit Designs put together the blooms, For Heavens Cake crafted the sweets, and Awake Photography snapped the goodies here.
From Heather Benge Events… For this inspiration shoot, I decided to incorporate the colors of Halloween in an elegant way. With this dramatic holiday falling on a Friday this year and a Saturday next year, I figured combining the colors we all relate to Halloween with some simple elegance could make a big statement. In my opinion, it did! Black, Peach, White and lots of greenery really gave the shoot the elegance I was after. We decided to shoot out in a field to really show off our design and concept without it getting lost in a venue.
It was pouring rain the whole day, but for a brief moment (literally about 15 minutes) it decided to ease up and left us with the most dramatic sky. The stationery suite was designed with a bold stripe to give a modern feel. The tablescape incorporated lots of gold details with high and low floral elements. My favorite design element of the whole shoot are the Mr. and Mrs. chairs. The silhouette decals are unique and tell a story.
You immediately know when looking at the table which chairs are for the bride and groom. Fits the theme perfectly, don’t you think? This concept started out as a tiny idea earlier this year when a bride hired me to design their wedding the day after Halloween. I thought how fun it would be to use the holiday as an inspiration in an unexpected way. I couldn’t be more happy with how this shoot turned out. Hope you enjoy the photos!
