One thing we love about weddings is how every couple has a unique personality and unique style. Celeste and David enjoy a dark aesthetic with gothic undertones. So, we wanted to honor their style and personality through a dark and moody wedding design that had bold pops of color.
Dark and moody wedding design
We worked alongside Design Studio South to bring our couple’s dark and moody wedding aesthetic to life through their floral design and wedding decor.
The couple wanted everything to be dark, from the black taper candles, turquoise velvet linens, dark-colored flowers, and greenery. Everything reflected our couple’s dark and moody wedding aesthetic.
Dark and moody wedding flowers
We were inspired by the bride’s vibrant turquoise-dyed hair for their floral design, so we ordered some dyed preserved foliage to match. It’s safe to say the dyed foliage was a huge hit!
For this unique dark and moody wedding design, we ordered custom-painted anthuriums from Haus of Stems. I’d been wanting to use these for a while and knew this would be the perfect event to showcase them. Our team incorporated the stunning painted anthuriums into the bridal bouquet and altar backdrop.
Inside the reception space, chandeliers were covered in dyed teal plumosa and hung above dramatic wedding tables. These dramatic wedding tables were set with dark and moody wedding flowers that were incorporated into tall floral centerpieces and low floral arrangements.
My favorite element of the day was the breathtaking floral wedding ceremony arch! Complete with the purple alliums popping up from the ground, this dramatic altar backdrop was meant for this couple.
We don’t often get requests for dark and moody weddings, so it was a fun challenge for our team to pull off this dark and dramatic wedding aesthetic for Celeste and David. Not only was the design a fun challenge, but they were all-around dream clients to work with. If you have a unique wedding design that you’ve been dreaming about, we’d love to help bring the floral design to life! No wedding aesthetic is too abstract or unique for the Gray Harper team!
