An Edgy Modern Twist on Southern Hospitality

Ready for sweater weather, cozy nights, and moody fall colors? This stunning edgy modern wedding shoot is the perfect way to ease into autumn, thanks to a dramatic spin on Southern Hospitality from Alina Ligia Photography and The Gathering Co! The color palette of cobalt blue, goldenrod yellow, and sleek black is the perfect way to welcome fall with open arms!

Gorgeous invitations kick off the color palette, with bold yellow brush lettering and white ink on black paper to add just the right amount of edge!

New York Bride & Groom of Raleigh styled the bride and groom for the perfect amount of modern minimalism! The sleek wedding dress featured a high neckline and trumpet silhouette with straps criss-crossing an open back. The gorgeous bridal look was topped off by romantic hair and a deep red lip thanks to Bardot Bridal. The groom’s classic black suit got a rustic twist thanks to a pair of brown leather shoes for the perfect finishing touch!

Bushel and Peck Designs combined sweet and edgy in the stunning bouquet, pairing peach and purple flowers with seedpods, amethyst scabiosa, and glossy green leaves for a dramatic floral accent!

Fall is a time to gather and celebrate, so The Gathering Co wanted the reception tables to reflect that! Dramatic black candleholders, cobalt blue china, and smoky quartz glassware added bold color to the farm table with a runner of flowers and ferns. The hall at Forest Hall was transformed into a cozy haven thanks to plenty of string lighting and late summer sunshine.

Greenhouse Picker Sisters put together the perfect vintage lounge thanks to a cognac leather couch and fun acrylic signage!

The amazing black wedding cake by Sugar Euphoria was accented by touches of greenery for the perfect chalkboard effect!

To invite guests to mingle in the crisp autumn air, The Barbox Co set up shop outside! The whimsical moble bar served up blackberry mojitos and horchata and rum cocktails to take the chill out of the air!

Forget sweater weather! The bride topped her modern wedding dress with a black leather jacket!
