When Noelle found her wedding dress (which was only £315!), it inspired everything else for her October wedding to Brian. They wanted the day to have a day with the same elegant gothic vibe and for them that meant a black and gold color scheme with mid-century leanings rather than Hot Topic vibes!
The couple love the spookier and darker things in life so they wanted that to come across in the classiest way possible. They tried to keep a classy spooky undertone by using tarot card table numbers and black damask linens with moody flowers. They are also crazy cat people and wanted our cats, Cashmere and Binx, to be represented as much as possible. They had candles of them that turn into skeletons burning at the sweetheart table and the cocktails were themed after them, too. There was a black gin gimlet for their black cat and a pumpkin drink for our senior kitty, Cashmere.
The day was held at Piedmont Community Hall in Oakland, and their handfasting ceremony was held between the trees behind hall. They wrote personal vows and ended the ceremony with a Game of Thrones quote to seal the deal. Decor-wise they included autumnal, spooky and gothic touches such as pumpkins, which were placed on the dinner plates as flavors.
The bridesmaids were wearing burgundy velvet maxi dresses and covered up with black leather jackets. The groom and groomsmen were wearing black but the guys also rocked burgundy velvet ties.
