A Pastel Halloween Wedding Inspired Shoot – Spiders, and Pumpkins, and Brides… oh my!

This pastel Halloween wedding inspired shoot certainly caught our eye, and when it was submitted with the first sentence “Spiders, and Pumpkins, and Brides… oh my!” we knew it was going to be brilliant!

Pairing Halloween with pastel colours seems like a match made in Goblin-filled Heaven for a wedding when your couple and guests are not afraid of something spooky and fun. Avoiding the typical orange and black overused in Halloween settings, this styled shoot team opted for opportunities to incorporate not only a little elegance and colour fun but also some creepy-crawly elements to create a Pastel Halloween Wedding experience.

The light-filled River View at Occoquan served as the ideal venue for this pastel Halloween wedding styled shoot. Picturesque views of the lake through every window made the space incredibly alluring, even for the dead.

Guests absorbed the pastel Halloween experience as they took their seats in Chiavari chairs lined with pastel pinks and lavenders cushions and gazed upon a custom installation from Ikamcreates. Laced with larger-than-life paper flowers, hidden spiders, and captivating gold skulls, the backdrop provided the picture-perfect milieu for the Bride and Groom.

Guests, if they dared, found where they were destined to sit via a graveyard with custom gold coffins designed by A Spoonful of Planning. Flora and Mischief cultivated a sinister, moss field as a chilling place of rest.

By not fearing a bit of colour, the A Spoonful of Planning team layered vivid pastel coloured linens from Party Rental Ltd. to create intrigue and cohesively tie together the colour palette. Details such as the Halloween book placed under Flora and Mischief’s full and vibrant arrangements as well as the spider napkin-ring holder pulled guests seated at the tables further into the themed experience.

Not steering from the theme, custom sweets in the shape of cupcakes, cookies, and cake enticed guests to indulge. Accompanied by skulls, spiders, and the cutest bride and groom skeleton couple, the dessert table appeared straight out of a pastel Halloween colour fairy tale – pumpkin and all!

Every unique element seamlessly came together to create a pastel Halloween wedding that any non-traditional, Halloween-loving couple would die for.
