Fulton Market Kitchen in Chicago provided the perfect eclectic backdrop for this elegant love affair. Dancers emblished with Black Swan-inspired wardrobes adorned in feathers and dramatic details were the ideal pair for this styled shoot. Black, gold, along with hints of white and deep red were the focus colors of this dramatic occasion. All photographs by Nomee Photography and Lori Sapio Photography.
Lush greenery, enhanced by pops of white, deep burgundy, and red added a dramatic flair to this styled shoot alongside a hint of elegance provided by touches of gold. The ornate gold accents of chargers, utensils, and metal napkin rings tied in perfectly with the gold leaf accented cake. Adorned with edible gold leaf flakes, lush red roses, gold-sprayed grasses, and cascading silk ribbon, the cake was truly a masterpiece. Hand-dipped candied apples accented each place setting and provided a mystical, yet refined option for favors.
Through the use of red, gold, and white accents, the natural beauty of the stationery was highlighted while providing a classic touch of elegance. Complete with a dark red rose embossed wax seal, both the place cards and invitation suite perfectly captured the gothic nature of this glamorous event. Lit by flickering candlelight from dripping candelabras provided by Fulton Market Kitchen, the couple’s beautiful dresses and satin pointe shoes were perfectly paired with sophisticated touches of belts, feathered necklaces, lace gloves, and gold-plated jewelry. This styled shoot perfectly created a stark contrast between the beauty and dramatics that surrounded this gothic wedding.
