Moody + Dramatic Wedding Ideas : How to Go Beyond Wedding White

Today's featured styled shoot is filled to the brim with amazing, moody and dramatic inspiration. The wedding ideas are so striking with the use of dramatic color - which was inspired by bridal black. This shoot is gorgeously photographed by Chantal Routhier Photography and takes place on a llama farm. 

The goal of this wedding inspiration was to go with something darker and a tad more edgier than typical. Bridal black was the inspiration behind this stylized wedding shoot and the wedding dress was even black and white and is truly a work of art. Even the flatware was custom painted black and a silk table runner was dyed to match the wedding dress.

Many different elements were incorporated into this inspiration to make the dark, yet dreamy shoot come true . . . including rich hues, raw crystal and geometric shapes. Wait until you see the black wedding cake . . . the texture and shape are outstanding - as are the sugar flowers.

Inspiration Board : a dramatically elegant red and black wedding

Recently a bride emailed me looking for inspiration for her red and black wedding. I immediately went onto pinterest {you can find me here} and put together a board. I selected some of those images for the inspiration below and you can see even more red and black wedding ideas here. Of course my favorite idea has to be the black cone topped with a perfect red scoop of ice cream. What a great way to end the night and treat your guests to a sweet surprise.
