Our couple today is definitely unique! Instead of settling for a traditional wedding, they decided to have a Fox Hill wedding day that definitely suited their personalities.
From Rayna’s grey wedding dress and unique bridal boots, to the gorgeous black-themed decorations and themed floral work, this is definitely a unique wedding to remember!
From the bride:
The theme- I’ve always loved the darker side so I knew I wanted a theme that was loose enough that it didn’t come across as halloweeny or tacky. So I came up with “Moody Gothic Forest” and took traits from all of those to make a style.
Our colors were Burgundy, Forest Green and Black (with some birch colors to brighten it up some) I used a lot of greenery and fairy lights to achieve the “forest” part of the idea, and lots of dark-colored skulls and other gothic deco.
The fashion: I knew I wanted a black dress and my husband was very supportive of that. I wanted a classic poofy, flowing dress with a large train but I also wanted to be comfy so I opted for black platform Doc Martins for the shoes.
Our favorite color is forest green so we wanted the groomsmen in black suits with dark green accessories and the groom had a dark green vest to stand a bit apart. The bridesmaids(and man) wore dark burgundy and red formal wear that worked beautifully with the groomsmen’s fits.
The bride and groom’s favorite moments: My favorite moment of our Fox Hill wedding was the first dance. We danced to “What Ifs” by Kane Brown. It was the first song he ever sent me saying it reminded him of me and when I listened to it the first time I could picture our first dance together, it was really romantic for me.
We had a photobooth for the guests and it was a hit! We also had s’mores bar and a fire going that really made it feel like a great midwest night with our friends and family.
My favorite part was our first dance and the food was also amazing. A memory that sticks out is just talking with my new husband at dinner, I think that’s when it started sinking in that we were really married.
Advice from the bride: Don’t feel pressured to plan the wedding alone! If you need to make 10 calls, ask your partner to make 5 of them. It’s BOTH of you two’s big day! Work together to achieve your dream wedding!
