Dark Inspiration : Photography by Cavin Elizabeth

So happy to share this unique and dark Hannibal inspired shoot photographed and designed by Cavin Elizabeth.  She gets so much inspiration from television and movies and it was amazing to see this whole thing come together.

This scene was set in the front dining room of The Lion's Share in Downtown San Diego.  It had the exact moody vibe we needed with the dark walls, taxidermy, and artwork that is stunning while being a little "off".  The flowers used ranged in color from deep crimson peonies, dahlias, ranunculus, and spray roses to blush Quicksand roses.  And because I'm obsessed with getting as much texture as possible in each piece, I threw in some cotton still on the stem for good measure.

Twinkle and Toast provided the hand lettering for the invitation suite, quote cards, and place cards.

Two more of our favorites, CC Vintage Rentals and Not My Dish provided the tapestry chairs, glasses, place settings, and sweet details.

And look at this cake!! Hey There, Cupcake! stunned, as always, with this black cake decorated with hand painted and sugar flowers.  Not to mention the edible gold foil - so clean and sophisticated.  More details were brought in to the table scape from Not My Dish's collection as well as a vintage perfume bottle that used to belong to my grandmother.

Erin Luce at Unveiled Bridal Beauty dolled our lovely models up.  Love Tatum contributed these amazing raw gems - how amazing is that huge ring?

See the feature on 100 Layer Cake!
