Gorgeous gothic Halloween Wedding Inspiration with an Addams Family twist

As we enter spooky season I am thrilled to share some gorgeous gothic Halloween Wedding Inspiration with an Addams Family twist.

Images were captured by In Style Imagery with planning by Michele Butler Events, creative consultation by Jaimz Dillman and the collaboration of a fabulous creative team.

Lee of Lee Forest Design says of this amazing Addams Family themed Halloween Wedding Inspiration…

 

Every year, when the wind picks up and a chill is in the air, a group of wedding vendors in Central Florida combine creative efforts to create fantastical haunted weddings.

Themes are taken from folklore, movies, and pop culture turning the traditional on its severed ear.

Once the pitch is made a meeting with the team who all contribute with their ideas commences to bring something macabre to life!

This round we wanted to feature one of the truest loves out there in a very Addams Wedding.

 

Starting with the venue, it couldn’t be your standard hotel ballroom or event centre.

We needed something that fit such a well known aesthetic it screamed “of course they would get married here!”

And we found just that in the heart of downtown Orlando! Cocktails and Screams is a year-round Halloween bar that also happened to have an area dedicated to our dark duo, so… check!

 

For our Gomez and Morticia – we wanted to bring goth’s favourite couple into a more modern and inclusive arrangement so we spun the story with a same-sex union.

Leisa Englert & Cherran Dea totally embodied the look and feel we were going for and we all had so much fun with the mix of both the theme, and an air of cool sophistication.

The attire had to be specific so we searched the racks at our favourite vintage store, Duckie’s Vintage Boutique to find truly unique pieces that would look perfect among fog and candles.

A stylish tux from Luxury Tux added the formal touch needed for a truly sumptuous affair.

There was a delicate balance for striking hair and makeup by Laura Reynolds Artistry to create characters we all already know and love but still allow the model’s beauty to shine through.

 

Our table and decor had to not only be gorgeous but also a twisted feast for the eyes.

Textured linens, glam plates, chargers, glassware, flatware from A Chair Affair,  linens from Connie Duglin Linen,  custom stationery from Themes Come True lent to a one-of-a-kind setting, alongside  a stunning candle wall and furniture rentals from Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals.

The floral touches from Lee Forrest Design were literally turned on their head with rose heads clipped from their stems and either, suspended from the centre chandelier, or submerged in the bottom on 2 grand vases.

Definitely giving off otherworldly vibes and a spin on what you can do outside the box.

One wow factor added was dancing on clouds – a new trend which real couples have embraced for first dances or grand entrances.

And for the ceremony portraits, this effect raised the bar that much higher.

Other additional touches featured an all-black tiered wedding cake from Anna Cakes complete with skull and raven guardians, swords for when you’ve met your match from Bill Warriner – Fight Director, and Thing from Cos FX who – of course – watched over the rings.

 

Lastly, our photographer and videographer captured the spirit of the entire day with moody lighting and tight shots really focusing on the couple and details of the set up.

Moody fogging from the smoke machine of JW Yeager added to the eerie haunted atmosphere.

With as many things that had to be adjusted, rescheduled, and reconfigured while planning all of this through the pandemic, it turned out exactly and even better than envisioned.

We hope you enjoy our Halloween Wedding Inspiration with as much excitement and reverence for the classic characters as we did!
