Solar Eclipse Inspired Wedding Ideas with a Black Cake

Wedding Design

There’s a lot to love in today’s styled shoot from Julie Paisley Photography and Cedarwood Weddings, so you might want to get settled in. Taking inspiration from the recent fantastical solar eclipse, this creative team styled lush vignettes featuring only black, white, green, and a touch of gold in the form of geometric accents. The result took our breath away, and we think it’ll do the same for you:

Dart Collective

DJs • Bands • Party Down

Started as a California-based DJ collective in 2013, Dart has now grown to include numerous live musicians and performers, all with the same simple goal of offering a more customized and personal approach to music curation at weddings and special events.

At Dart, we are all working DJs and musicians. Music is our passion and we want to share it with you and your guests—whether that means digging through vinyl crates for that one song you have to have, or customizing a repertoire list for one of our bands to flawlessly execute, our main goal here is to elevate and personalize your event so that it uniquely represents you.

Despite our attention to detail, we are not elitists and we do not take ourselves too seriously. These events are supposed to be fun, inclusive experiences and we want to only enhance that feeling by playing the best music we can. Whether it’s getting down to LCD Soundsystem or setting the mood with Paul Simon, we want to offer something a little different that will still connect with you and your guests.

Dark and Stormy Magnolia Plantation Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

We’re sending you off into the weekend with something special today, in the form of a dark and stormy wedding scene in the heart of Charleston, South Carolina. Lisa Blume Photography, Cheers Darling Events, Paprika Southern, and On a Limb collaborated on this dreamy inspiration shoot full of moody colors, brass candlesticks, and an incredible Elie Saab gown we absolutely love for nontraditional brides.

Dark and Stormy Magnolia Plantation Wedding Inspiration -

From the photographer, Lisa Blume Photography: I put together this shoot with Cheers Darling Events and Paprika Southern over the summer. I had a vision of candelabras lining a long driveway framed with live oak trees covered in moss. Anna and Nico were our models and I put together a styled wedding day for them that started off with an early evening dinner with the ceremony to follow…. to shake things up a bit and create more moody lighting for the ceremony post-dinner ceremony.
