Brooke and Michelle’s October wedding drew inspiration from Memento Mori, Phantom of the Opera, the Addams Family and Stevie Nicks – this is a delightful dark wedding with a regal and gothic feel.
The ceremony was beautiful and emotional, the brides took vows out of Kurt Cobain’s journals. Alongside framed signs advising guests it was an unplugged ceremony and asking for donations to the Best Friends’ Animal Society in lieu of gifts.
As for the venue decor, Brooke and Michelle enhanced the dramatic architectural features with lots of homemade decor elements, and there were many jewel tones to embrace the season. They adorned the room with pictures of them as children, made their own table plan with a jaw-dropping ornate mirror, and decorated the dark sideboard with some trinket boxes. The wedding cake perfectly fit the wedding style: it was a black cake with gold patterns topped with the same blooms that were used for decor.
Brooke’s deep hunter green suit was a bespoke creation, which she wore with a pair of Vans that were part of a collaboration with the artist Baron von Fancy. Michelle’s stunning white lace two-piece featured a long-sleeved crop top and a full-length skirt, which she accessorized with studded boots. During the reception, Michelle did an outfit change, and appeared in her aunt’s vintage 90s black prom outfit, which was actually a babeing jumpsuit.
