Halloween enthusiasts don't shy away from color or drama, and this incredible inspiration shoot has both. We love the way bright colors pop against shiny gold, and we simply can't get enough of the tree-bark finish on that beautiful cake. Inspired by bold fall designs with a twist of renaissance, this gorgeous styled shoot is dripping with vibrant fall opulence. | Photo by Sophie Epton Fine Art Photography | Florals by Flora Fetish | Rentals by Bee Lavish Vintage Rentals | Cake by Simon Lee Bakery | via Chic Vintage Brides


This moody garden inspiration shoot soars to new heights with the bride's long black skirt paired with a chic, lace top.

If ever a dress were created for a Halloween wedding, it'd be this showstopper by Vera Wang. Inspired by witchcraft and enchantment, the layers of black and soft pink tulle in between soft textured pleating create a dreamy gown that's the perfect combination of mystic and glamour. | Photo by Beth Insalaco Photography | Florals and Stationery by Fox Petal Floral Design Studio | Dress by Vera Wang | via Burgh Brides
