Black and Coral Wedding Color Palette

October 31, 2014 | nicole
Tags:

With more and more couples planning Halloween nuptials, we thought a black and coral wedding color palette would be a fun take on the traditional orange and black color scheme. Choosing softer shades of orange that fall in the coral family helps keep your palette elegant and romantic, while providing a sweet contrast to the stark black. We love the look of a coral cake, a black tuxedo with coral boutonniere, a signature pumpkin cocktail, and a stunning bouquet of coral and black.

Tim Burton Inspired Engagement Session

In the spirit of Halloween, we thought it would be fun to share a spooky engagement session. The beauty of artfully macabre portraits is in finding the sense of romance within the darkness. Samantha and Luke went to EyeWonder Photography with an idea for a Tim Burton inspired engagement session, and we are obsessed with the outcome.

Here’s a little behind-the-scenes from Lionel and Kristiaan of EyeWonder Photography:

Our fantastic couple, Sam and Luke, came to us with an idea… they wanted a dark, Tim Burton-esque engagement session. We were intrigued but had no idea how we were going to pull it off – as this is not our usual style. We spent a lot of time trying to find the right location, discussing attire, and looking for dark inspiration (to include movies, magazines, and fine art photographer, Brooke Shaden). Lionel stumbled on the PERFECT location – a couple of old creepy dilapidated houses – and we were on our way.

Sam and Luke did a terrific job on the outfits and more importantly, they were somehow able to project both darkness and beauty for our cameras. We barely had to pose them because they were so comfortable with each other and with their ‘characters’. They trusted us and did anything and everything we asked. We will love them forever for pushing us out of the box to create something unique, dark, and lovely.
