Immerse yourself in all the magic of the dark color palette, theatrical decor, and a beautiful, woodsy setting. Get Inspired by this Dark and Moody October Elopement.
They Captured The Vision
The lush green foliage at Ijams Nature Center provided the perfect intimate setting for this October elopement shoot. Centrally located just five minutes from downtown, this 315-acre wildlife sanctuary and greenspace is one of Knoxville’s greatest treasures. And all the natural beauty made for a very enchanting backdrop for our bride and groom.
They Dressed in Black
Gorgeous models TiAndra and Weldon both wore chic all-black ensembles. Her look is all from The Gilded Gown. She’s in a stunning plunging V Lace Fitted Gown with a matching black veil. He’s in a black tuxedo worn with a tie. We love this non-traditional, edgy take on wedding day outfits.
The vision for this shoot came together with the help of many talented pros. Designers from Blush & Ivory Florals, @yorkeventdesigns, curated a feast for everyone’s eyes. And Anderson Party Rental provided so many elements as well. Look closely and you’ll see antlers, skulls, candles and crows.
The on-point vintage furnishings (we are obsessed with the velvet Victorian settee) and super cool octagon backdrop came from Cantrell & Co. Event Rentals
Details make the magic, and here they were a collaboration of all the creatives present. Including Your Poppy Shop.
