We designed this styled shoot to play with some dark and moody vibes. We were inspired by velvet textures, modern lines, black accents, and edgy decor. Brasada Ranch was the clear choice for our shoot location. Their giant, modern fireplace and wooden barn were the perfect accents to play off of. Gwen Shoemaker Photography took all of our gorgeous photographs.

Cassidy Elise supplied the hair and makeup, complete with a moody red lip and silver flakes on the bride’s cheeks. The super cool crystal crown was provided by Emma Katzka. And the modern, sleek rings were provided by our very own local jewelry shop, Pave Fine JewelryThe Mrs Box provided the gorgeous rose velvet ring box. Letters and Dust created the romantic invitation suite and save the date.

The bride’s dress was provided by Sweet Caroline Styles. Her flowy black skirt combined with a fitted, lace top was the perfect attire for these moody vibes. The groom’s suite was from The Black Tux. I mean, who isn’t dying over this rose colored suite!?

The Posie Shoppe created the stunning pillars that these two got hitched between. We added in some pews from Heirlooms and Co to complete our ceremony look. Posie Shoppe did all of the florals, from the bride’s stunning bouquet to the groom’s pocket square boutonniere to the floral runner.

After the ceremony, it was time to eat! So we munched down on some delicious appetizers and drinks from Brasada Ranch. With rentals from Heirlooms and Co, we were able to design an appetizer display station, complete with a stunning black cake from Dreamin’ Desserts. We also hand crafted the maroon paper overhang and balloon display. Just a small custom design installation to make this space pop!

Moving on from appetizers, we made our way to the head table, situated beautifully under Brasada’s stunning fireplace. We hung our “Lovestruck” neon sign, custom made by Brite Lite, over the mantle with rose and maroon candles lighting the way. We lined the table with black velvet linens and rose velvet napkins from La Tavola. Each place setting consisted of black dishware, silver accents, acrylic name cards made by Heirlooms and Co, and disco ball decor. But what truly made the table was Posie Shoppe’s organic, wild floral runner. The piece was created in a pink and maroon ombre color palette, and it couldn’t have been more beautiful!

Our couple then spent some time on the beautiful grounds of Brasada, taking stunning portraits and spending some quiet time together. Finally, they cuddled up in our lounge, complete with rentals and a welcome sign from Heirlooms and Co.

We loved getting to exercise our creativity with this moody shoot. And we had such a great time with all of the vendors involved. Thank you to everyone, it was such a beautiful day!
