Styles: Halloween, Gothic, Classy
Submitted by: Jekalo Photography
In the lead up to Halloween, the adventurous and wild side of wedding industry creatives come out to play. It’s this time of year when gothic styling truly stands out and gets noticed.
What’s intriguing about this Wicked Fall Wedding shoot is how the vendors have effortlessly combined classy styling among the gothic theme without it feeling heavy or overdone. With mysterious and dark inspiration circling from the ceremony to the reception, it comes just in time for Halloween and those looking for an edge for their big day.
Photographed on the charming 80-acre estate, once known for entertaining California’s ‘high society’ is Christmas House Inn and Gardens - a lovingly restored bed and breakfast playing host to weddings and events among their charming orchard groves and expansive gardens.
You’ll find dark toned elements throughout which are softened by florals and classy styling spanning the table setting, escort signage and the old-worldly invitation suite. The first and second look features a black and burgundy suit paired with her black and white wedding dresses. There’s so much here to leave you feeling inspired and did we mention her matching black veil?
WE LOVE: The imprinted table runner with the couple’s vows which read “I promise to grow along with you, to be willing to face change in order to keep our relationship alive and exciting. I promise to be your equal in all things, in good times and bad.” What a sweet idea!
Visionary and photographer behind the shoot is Tiffany of Jekalo Photography and The Counterfeit Wedding - a styled shoot business open to photographers and wedding vendors looking to build their portfolio and expand their network.
Tiffany said, “I wanted to create a classy and semi glam wicked wedding to show couples that yes, you can have a beautiful goth wedding, especially around Halloween.”
