Happy New Year, Cakies! Just because fall is technically behind us doesn’t mean we’re over all the dark, romantic vignettes that inspired us all season long. Moody vibes and vibrant flowers are our jam now, there’s no turning back! Plus, this editorial from L. Brook Events with florals by Watershed Floral that Jamie Mercurio sent our way shows just how stunning an indoor venue can be. Shall we?

Lindsey tells it, Rich jewel-toned flowers mixed with soft pinks and coppery foliage combined to make up the lush and romantic bouquets that were adorned with hand-dyed silk ribbon. The table was draped in a deep navy, velvet runner and topped with a lush and organic arrangement. Brass candle sticks and dark candles dripping in wax scattered beside vintage pewter vessels that were overflowing with seasonal berries and fruit completed the tablescape and acted as a subtle reference to the elements present in Dutch still life paintings, which are so often described as moody and dark. Linen and leather elements were placed beside vintage cobalt and pressed glass goblets at each place setting to add additional layers to the moody, rich and romantic design.

On the day of the shoot torrential down pours and dark skies drew us into the top floor of an old barn, but ultimately this weather and the backdrop of the raw space played a vital role in setting the scene for the intense beauty and romance found in these images.
