I love a good fall wedding but this one was special because it was on Halloween weekend but didn't include any pumpkins, leaves or decorative gourds! Instead, Jen and Steve's wedding had a moody yet romantic tone but gave a nod to the season by incorporating black feathers in the bouquets and silver vampire teeth as place card holders!
Both the ceremony and reception were held at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, DC. The bride wore a modern and glamorous gown complete with feathers and a fur stole so we carried that feel into her bridal bouquet. Her bouquet was a sexy design of only dark eggplant (black) calla lilies accented with black ostrich feathers. Her bridesmaid wore black and white and carried a bouquet of white and mini green hydrangea accented with eggplant callas and feathers. The men wore single mini calla boutonnieres.
The low centerpieces for the reception were clean and light with lots of fluffy white and green hydrangea and dark accents of rich eggplant mini callas. The sweetheart table was accented with the bridal bouquet, candles and a garland of eucalyptus. The cake topper was designed and created by the bride's father and we added touches of seeded eucalyptus around the base.
A simple yet stunning wedding with some of my favorite vendors! Enjoy the gorgeous photos from the talented Shandi Walllace!
