Happy Halloween, Darlings! We hope you have some fun plans for this weekend, whether it’s dressing up for a party, or snuggling on the couch with scary movies! Either way, today, we thought we get in the festive spirit with a feature from photographer Mariel Hannah
designer/floral/styling extraordinaires Mint Design with fashion styling by Kimberly Lawson. We are OBSESSED with the black stationery by Matinae Design Studio, black cake by De Coeur Bake Shop, the custom lace dress by Mary Rita and all things sexy in today’s feature!
A few words from Mint Design:
For our Black Swan shoot we were drawn to deep sultry colors such as merlots, plums, charcoals, rose’ and black. Our florals were loose and romantic, flowing with purple cotinus, red ranuculus, black pin cushions, privett berry, seeded eucalyptus, red hanging amaranthus, caramel antike and romantik antike garden roses. We used a black circular table which we dressed with black candle sticks, bronze candle holders, florals, black plates, feather winged chargers and black drinking chalices. Our fabulous black fondant cake made by De Coeur Bakeshop was an absolute show stopper. We placed it on a table in in the lake, to give the cake the illusion that it was floating. This same table was later used to balance our Black Swan in the water making it seem as she was walking on water.
