This Gothic Wedding Has a Dark and Romantic Theme

Rather than go the traditional route of being married in a chapel, or the bride choosing to wear white, this gothic wedding took place at California's South Coast Winery.

Since the couple—Sarah and Brandin—are fans of all things black, dramatic and gothic, opting for a darker-than-usual wedding was a natural choice for the pair. In addition to having the bride and groom both wear black, another unusual element of the wedding was for the bride to walk down the aisle to Irish bagpipes rather than the traditional bridal march. For the reception post-ceremony, the couple opted for a rich color scheme of black, white and burgundy, with the wine-like tones perfectly rounding out the winery wedding theme. Table decor included twisting black tree branches that seem right out of a dark fairy tale.
