Today we are having a hello from the fall that passed, the season of dark, romantic vignettes and moody vibes and dark looks. Besides, this editorial from L. Brook Events with florals by Watershed Floral that Jamie Mercurio shows just how stunning an indoor venue can be.
Rich jewel-toned flowers mixed with soft pinks and coppery foliage combined to make up the lush and romantic bouquets that were adorned with hand-dyed silk ribbon. The table was draped in a deep navy, velvet runner and topped with a lush and organic arrangement. Brass candle sticks and dark candles dripping in wax scattered beside vintage pewter vessels that were overflowing with seasonal berries and fruit completed the tablescape and acted as a subtle reference to the elements present in Dutch still life paintings, which are so often described as moody and dark. Linen and leather elements were placed beside vintage cobalt and pressed glass goblets at each place setting to add additional layers to the moody, rich and romantic design.
The lacy Claire Pettibone gown as a mega source of inspo for the team, not to mention this two-piece bridesmaid ensemble from BHLDN. The groom was wearing a black velvet jacket, black pants, a white shirt and a teal tie, such an elegant and vintage-inspired look, and velvet is ideal for moody seasons.
Torrential down pours and dark skies drew the team into the top floor of an old barn, but ultimately this weather and the backdrop of the raw space played a vital role in setting the scene for the intense beauty and romance found in these images.
