Dracula had to pivot his big wedding plans because of the coronavirus. Instead, he opted for a micro wedding in an autumn-covered graveyard. With the styling help of A Family Affair Maine, Cody James Barry Photography put together today’s vampy editorial with Dracula’s bride in mind!
It just so happens that this editorial is set at Garden Gate at Hayley Farm – with a graveyard steps from the property. Hayley Farm owner, Sarah, actually calligraphed all the signage; but this one is our favorite: There are darknesses in life and there are lights, and you are one of the lights, the light of all lights. Electric Flora is killing it with these eccentric, ghoulish and moody floral designs! She’s known for using out of the box flowers in her bouquets. Dressing up a large tombstone is truly chilling, and it was done with cappuccino and amnesia roses, rainbow phalaenopsis, ranunculus and dahlias! Darkest of dark, textured tiers of cake by Autumn Nomad gives this vampy feast a sweet edge. The design is as glamorous dripping with malevolent goodness.
Dracula’s bride in her first wedding day look, and we already can’t get enough! The moody, rich florals are enchanting. We’re smitten by her dark (but romantic) hair accessory from BHLDN. The second bridal look is a rad choice for the unconventional bride. The ‘Zander’ dress from Sottero and Midgley, features contrasting layers of tulle + Chantilly lace. The sheer bodice features illusion long sleeves and a plunging V-neckline! Maybe for Dracula’s modern bride.
