The Living meet the Dead

Happy Halloween, boys and ghouls!  Today we have some holiday inspired weddings that are so fabulous, you’ll be dying for an invitation.  Our first event’s creepy beauty will send you on a quest through the woods in search of it!  Here’s what event designer Laura Taylor of Gathered Events had to say about the eery setting:

In the gorgeous woods behind the historic Highland Manor, we created this Halloween-styled scene pulling inspiration from antique gothic decor and Tim Burton.  We wanted to create a scene that was lush and beautiful, with a creepy twist.  Antique vessels were filled with gorgeous dahlias, gerberas, and callas.  These fresh blooms, paired with unexpected elements like animal skins and skulls, helped us create the beautiful and spooky scene.  Some of our favorite details were the tiny terrariums filled with moss, black ravens, and vintage baby doll heads.  The place settings combined elegant fine china with rustic seeded eucalyptus and skeleton bones.  The juxtaposition of old rusty pieces with the bright green ground created some serious drama!

    The Black and Red Roses are to die, where can I find them at?

      buy some red roses and spray them with black or gray floral paint and you ‘ve got the job done.
