Something wicked this way comes in this gorgeous autumnal vineyard wedding shoot in the North Carolina Foothills with a spooky vibe.
This daring couple has decided to show everyone the meaning of ’til death do us part, and its hauntingly beautiful.
Images were captured by Him & Her Photography with the collaboration of a fabulous creative team.
Josh & Alisha of Him & Her Photography say of the shoot…
Embracing the deep colour palette of the season, this autumnal vineyard wedding shoot shows that dark and moody can still be bold and colourful.
Our venue was the picturesque ReyLan Vineyards.
The Vineyards & Winery existed as a dairy farm for nearly a century. Today, the rolling hills and winding drive romance visitors as they drive through 35,000 European-varietal grape vines.
The distinctive cupola roof top of the Winery is a beacon for the southern portion of the Yadkin Valley Appellation, and all this made it the perfect setting for our shoot.
For the bride, we wanted to bring out her inner enchantress, so your typical bridal white was not the right fit.
This beautiful gown from Southern Bride is actually pieces of two Sherri Hill dresses, customized for our shoot complimented beautifully by makeup by Makeup by Erin Alice and hair styling by Missy with Full Glam.
The groom wore a burgundy, paisley print tux jacket with a matching bowtie and black accessories.
The planner, Katharine Mann Events, coordinated our shoot with the venue and arranged each setup.
The first location in the woods is were we held our magical first look.
The focal point here was the beautiful bouquet of Dahlias, roses, and wild greens.
The florist Daly Floral Designs carried this over to our ceremony site, wrapping a large Juliette frame and tree trunk with florals, and greenery.
We added grey and black candles to complete the scenery.
Our sweetheart table was set off with more black and grey tapered candles, a large floral arrangement, and a few velvet accessories to complete the mood.
The table settings included twig inspired cutlery and menus designed by the talented Artemisa Calligraphy and Design.
Just like the stationery suite, the menus were hand-dyed. The cake was created by our local Publix, with oranges roses added by the team at ReyLan Vineyards.
For our final portion of the shoot, we enveloped our couple in puff of smoke and took a few farewell photos on the dock before the witching hour began.
