Pumpkins are synonymous with fall and this pumpkin, gold, and black styled shoot provides the perfect spark to enliven that seasonal inspiration you’re craving. This shoot is unique because it explores a different side to the season. Not all pumpkins are orange, nor do all brides wear white, yet this shoot is elegant and timely.
The invitation suite features the exquisite color palette along with unique touches. Burnt edges on the parchment along with an orange wax stamp and gold script tie all the elements together.
Much like the black stone in the bride’s statement bauble, the color black makes an interesting appearance in many elements of this shoot. Black flowers accompany white ones for a sharp contrast of color, in both the bride’s bouquet and the ceremony flower arrangements.
The ceremony is set between white columns, black lanterns, numerous white candles, and chic white pumpkins shimmering with gold.
The bride wears a sparkling gold gown with an open back. Her hair is pulled in a sophisticated ponytail and she completes her look with stylish earrings and dark nail polish.
The groom pulls off a classic look with a black suit and black bow tie. Together, they make a stylish, yet seamless pair.
The cake is a daring and bold creation of gold and black. Three narrow tiers are blanketed with black fondant while gold icing drips from the top and bottom. A gold and black flower serves as the cake topper to give it that final golden polish.
The white pumpkins shimmer in the sunlight next to windows. Down the center of the table, the décor includes black candlesticks, pumpkins, and gold and black votives.
The bride and groom are treated to place settings of textured gold chargers, clear crystal plates, and gold flatware. To tie in the stationery, place settings are marked by personalized place cards burnt at the edges.
For a modern touch, a light fixture hangs above the table, offering an industrial ambiance to the elegant setting.
And to mix things up, why not turn the cake upside down? A feature for which many cake artists have been experimenting, the three tier black cake stands on its head atop a vintage dresser. It’s a unique focal point, bound to be quite the conversation piece.
If you’re a fan of fall but prefer an event that is edgy, fun, and fabulous, embrace darker colors, original décor, and think about a new way to do old things. With white pumpkins, gold touches, and a statement black hue, this styled shoot transforms the way we envision fall weddings.
