Ben and Olivia’s Halloween Wedding!

Hi guys!

Fall is coming up around the corner and what better way to get inspired than to check out one of our favorites from last year, Benjamin and Olivia.  Recently, this wedding was featured in the Sacramento magazine Real Weddings, and we couldn’t have been more happy! We met Ben and Olivia at a bridal show at the Grand Island Mansion (they stopped in to check out our Day of the Dead themed table…complete with a bright teal cake and skeleton bride and groom topper from Mexico).  We instantly clicked with them and all of their unconventional wedding inspirations.  We knew that they loved branches and mosses and had a crush on New Orleans style!  They ended up booking the Courtyard De Oro in Old Sacremento (what a great makeshift New Orleans vibe it gave off).  Anyways, I will stop blabbering and let the photos speak for themselves.  All the wonderful photos were taken by Briggs Photography.

Enjoy!

Setting up at the Courtyard
Black candle sticks with crystals helped to give a classy but still a slightly spooky feel!
Floating candles, orange roses and baby pumpkins sat at the end of the aisle
We kept the bridesmaids bouquets very crisp whites with some orange peppers and roses.

Paper flowers, spotted feathers, and monkey tails added some interesting textures.
We were really excited about Ben’s tie!
The Jr. Bridesmaid carried out a sprayed bod and some dried wheat.
More wheat and monkey tails with a touch of cockscomb
…just a quick kiss outside of Evangeline’s Coustume Mansion!

Love the paprika wall!
Cajun seasoning anyone?
Sugar skulls on the memory table.

Sugar and Spice’s AMAZING cake! We used an old french window box filled with moss to imitate a graveyard scene.
White orchids strung from branch to branch with orange roses really give a nice touch of floral.
Red LED lights lit the room and gave an ambient glow.
Black chandeliers on some of the tables, while tall branches and flowers flanked the others. Table names were of course old horror movies!
Spiked or not, a cider bar is a wonderful idea for any fall event!
