This dark and moody Downtown Phoenix wedding inspiration strays from what we normally see with a wedding or elopement. The difference is seen through the choice in venue, the color scheme, and slightly in the wardrobe. We begin with the venue, The Monroe Abbey. The Monroe Abbey is a Gothic Revival style building, built in 1929 as The Phoenix First Baptist Church, with a lot of character to help compliment the other character which is captured within the décor.
The color scheme starts with a black base accompanied by colors such as maroon, deep plum and muted forest greens. These colors are shown within the beautiful floral arrangements, created by Honey & Shaw, table settings with colored glasses and plates, invitation suite and cake by Amour de Sucre. While all these décor elements lean towards the darker colors and warmer hues, the bride is still the light of the setting. Her beautiful long-sleeve lace gown from Lovely Bride and looks stunning on her as well as with the setting. Her gown is complimented with styled hair done by Casey B Artistry and makeup done by Danika Christine Makeup.
Her groom looks just as put together in his wardrobe from Celebrity Tux and Tails. The couple complement each other within the darker hued setting and their connection and chemistry helps light up the ambience of the shoot. We feel the connection between the bride and groom all thanks to Sincerely Yara Photographie for capturing each special moment throughout the shoot! After seeing the happiness within this unique wedding setting, why don’t we stray for the normal more often?
