{#114} all hallow's eve

{colors} candy apple red, purple, black
{description} for this inspiration board i want to step away from the typical orange and black combo that is usually associated with halloween. i chose a richer color palette of candy apple red with hints of  purple and black. even though there is no pumpkin in sight you still get the feel of a darker but sexier halloween wedding especially when you sprinkled in some of the elements of the holiday like the spooky candy apples for you and your guests to munch as a midnight snack.

  1. I'm in love with those shoes and this board! This is the epitome of classy wickedness!

  2. LOVE this! I love how you didn't go with the traditional halloween -- it definitely still evokes the "darker" spirit of the holiday/season but is much more sophisticated and not as campy. I was half-expecting candy-corn something or other and was pleasantly surprised to find purples and reds!!!

  3. Oh, Chris! This is so striking. It's romantic, mysterious, and so enchanting!

  4. That you are a talented person... i already knew... but that you are from out of this world??? Chris i just found out that!! This is probably the most beautiful board ever!! This board deserves a shoot inspired by it... I'm serious!!! The color scheme is unexpected but it's perfect... the piano, "bridesmaids", the cake... i wouldn't change a thing... one single thing!

  5. Gorgeous Chris!! Love the colour combo... and I love that we're both on the same wavelength and featured the same dress today!!

  6. Your inspiration is ENDLESS! Every day you inspire me...THANK YOU! This color palette is just the pop of purple. And those black apples with the red pic - perfection!


  7. LOVE this board-so sexy and dark, and far more interesting that orange and black! Absolutely divine, as always!

  8. I absolutely love red and purple when paired together! It's not something a lot of people think to do, but it's so surprisingly elegant! Great job!


  9. stunning stunning board!! those shoes are fabulous!! you always find the BEST shoes girl!! and i def need to join the tuesday shoesday sometime!!

  10. Wow! Such a dark, wicked, mysterious and somehow still romantic and sexy board! Those candied plums....swoooooooon!!!

  11. i have been a long time reader of your blog
    this board is great
    I am not into spooks at all
    but this reads more elegant & mystery
    way to go!
