When I received a message from Jessica at The J Petite about collaborating on a skeleton wedding shoot, I jumped at the chance. The shoot took place in Arizona's Scorpion Gulch. I couldn't fly out to the shoot but I was totally swooning over the results.
“The inspiration for this shoot stemmed from creating a Halloween series for my blog that had a deep rooted bridal theme. The goal was to create something that was dark, a little creepy, moody, and still retain it’s beauty. I wanted to showcase a unique love story between two beings that was powerful yet mysterious. The color scheme consisted of deep purples, rich pinks, blacks, and touches of gold that contrasted beautifully against the barren stone walls. Ranunculus, dahlias, roses, magnolia leaves, and cosmo center pieces brought warmth and richness to our farm table. Sophistication and old world elegance was all in the details of the table from the gold stemware, antique goblets, and the calligraphy place cards. The brides ring was gold with a black sapphire center stone that was beautifully unique in itself. Simple gold diamond earrings, and a diamond tennis bracelet were the perfect accessories to heighten the elegance of the skeleton bride. The groom wore a deep purple jacket with an unbuttoned shirt that complimented the brides black and white Monique Lhuillier gown.” - Jessica Edmonds with The J Petite
