A Decadent Southern Gothic Styled Shoot

Today’s Halloween styled shoot from April AMODEO PHOTOGRAPHY is inspired by the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil a southern Gothic tale of murder, love (?) and Savannah’s eccentricities.

Some believe midnight is the period between the time for good magic and the time for evil magic, a witching hour, when creatures are thought to appear and to be at their most powerful and black magic to be most effective. At the historic Trivium Estate located in Forest, Virginia a decadent wedding lasts long into the night featuring vintage pieces, lush florals from Creative Occasions Events and a dark as night wedding cake from La Bella Torta, llc.

The original inspiration for this shoot was “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” and our florist had an amazing time incorporating all kinds of decadent garden items into his floral creations! A glorious hand-sewn fascinator headpiece adorned our bride, along with a black hand-made facial veil and original custom-created jewelry. A bit of southern Gothic, along with vintage pieces, created an eclectic look for an edgier bride or a Halloween-inspired couple.

Decadent details include vintage pieces (cuff-links, bird-cage chair, table settings) and opulent lush florals dripping with fruit, hand-stitched ruby & charcoal fascinator, and unique, custom-designed jewelry. Centerpieces included vintage books, colorful arrangements and many gothic touches. Our bride was adorned with a sumptuous headpiece with hand-sculpted red satin rose, black lace-covered fans sparkling with Swarovski Crystals. Our groom wore a vintage velvet top hat bedecked with decadent jewels. Velvet, lace, bits of gold and deeply rich colors compliment our alternative couple.
