When I met with Kim and Brian last year; I walked away from a great meeting and knew I really wanted their wedding. The theme was to be a Halloween goth wedding on Halloween night. It is truly my most favorite holiday, one in which I legally can transform into a kid again.
This wedding could’ve taken a totally tacky approach. But pretty hard to do when given the backdrop of Barclay Villa, a castle in Angier, NC was the host venue, and Kim’s keen eye for chic details. It was pure Halloween elegance with touches of whimsy. Very well done!
I had no idea the amount of details I was up against. From Kim’s orange petticoat, to the ultra chic wedding cake by Donna Ford of Sweet Memories Bakery adorned with fondant bats floating around the cake, and a full onslaught candy bar with candy that would make even the oldest of children’s eyes gleam! The kicker of it all for me was the masquerade influence. Their bridal party was announced sporting masks reminiscent of those from Anthony Kubrick’s, Eyes Wide Shut.
Overall, I’m so thrilled with the opportunity to shoot something different. This for me was different and totally a blast!
Congrats and wonderful wishes to the sweetest of couple’s, Kim and Brian. Never stop smiling, Brian!!
