Halloween Oddities Inspiration Shoot

What’s Halloween without a little bit of spookiness? This styled shoot from Rach Lea Photography and Ivory and Beau takes the Spanish moss that’s native to Savannah, GA and uses it to add an eerie, almost swamp-like effect that’s perfect for All Hallows’ Eve. We love that the “groom” brought his own pets to the shoot for an unexpected treat!

From the stylists, Nicole and Adrienna of Ivory and Beau: My best friend, Rachel, who is now getting married was dying to model for us and her tattoos inspired us to come up with an edgy, funky and darker wedding inspiration. With that are our starting point we came up with the theme of oddities and skulls. The Paris Market and Graveface Records had some amazing skulls and taxidermy pieces that we used for decor elements. For the flowers we wanted really dark elements and used a staple of Savannah and Savannah weddings, spanish moss, in a much darker way than normally seen.

The shoot took place at an old dairy farm, which has an almost haunted feel to it. Savannah is known for being a haunted city so it fit really well but in a completely different way than vendors normally portray Savannah. For an added treat, our guy model brought his 2 pets: a boa constrictor and a pitbull, which were perfect touches for the theme, except for when the boa constrictor decided to slither on the table… :) For the bride we modeled her in an assymetrical funky short dress from Faith Thornburg with a tulle and fishnet Twigs & Honey veil and we have Milan Day Spa do a faux hawk with intertwining braids.

‘Til Death Do Us Part Styled Wedding

Photos By: Analisa Joy

Halloween certainly comes with its own traditional colors – orange and black, with perhaps some purple thrown in – but we love this styled shoot focusing on the simplest palette of black and white. Analisa Joy, Couture Events, and Trendee Flowers worked their special Halloween magic on this wedding inspiration session, including a dramatic black lace gown.

From the event designer, Karina of Couture Events: I was inspired by those famous vows our couples share every year. “Till Death Do Us Part” encompasses eternal romance and an evermore covenant. I wanted to combine the charm of a wedding with the mystery of Halloween. The woodsy wonderland of La Bella Vida Estate was the perfect backdrop for this. The touches of mini white pumpkin place cards, eerie fog, and dry ice martinis brought in that spark of Halloween. The ombre color palette of black to white, the beautifully textured blooms and ambient candle lighting kept its elegance. I fell in love with the eccentricity of the hand painted and crafted signs, place cards, menus, and invitation.

We wanted the bride to have two different looks. The first being more bridal, dressed in a sun peeking through white ball gown dressed with soft curls and a more playful, natural look. The other to be the complete opposite, more stylized in her black gown with a darker more mysterious appearance. The groom was the perfect balance to both of these.

DIY Pallet Vertical Garden

We’re tickled pink to bring you a DIY tutorial on that very incredible pallet living wall seating chart from today’s styled shoot. You can palettes for free at warehouses, and this vertical garden wall would make for a great ceremony backdrop as well. Ivory + Beau and Izzy Hudgins Photography blew us away with this one, so we’re excited to know the exact details behind the gorgeous setup!

DIY Pallet Vertical Garden

DIY Living Wall

For this project, you will need:
-Variety of smaller plants (minimum of 25) if doing every other (about 5 plants in each side of the row)
-Shovel
-Scissors
-Flower cutters
-Palette
-Landscaping Fabric
-Dirt
-Staple Gun

Instructions:
1. The first step is to create backing for each row that will be attached to the palette. We used landscaping fabric so that the palette wall can be re-used and the plants can be watered even after using it. You will want to cut out pouches for each row that are a little higher so that you can fill up with enough dirt. For each side staple down the fabric and make sure secure enough so that it will hold the dirt in without it spilling out.

2. Repeat for every row you want to do.

3. After your pouches are complete we set out the plants the way we wanted them in each row.

4. One by one put the plants with the dirt into the pouch and add in dirt to bring up the plants and fill it out.

5. Complete each row and then you are all done!
