Hoopes Events holds the keys to infusing luxury and polish into the most fantastical and moody fall wedding designs.

Luxury is an element that elevates any and all parts of your wedding, no matter your unique vision. Whether you go for moody fall wedding vibes, timeless elegance, glittering glamour or a striking scene in a box all its own, Tonya Hoopes shows ways to invite lux style to any wedding celebration.

Kick tradition to the curb with design decisions that are completely one-of-a-kind. In this moody fall wedding scene, classic elements flourish with a moody and modern twist, taking Evermore Park’s rustic dining hall from Bavarian to bridal beauty. Deep shades of burgundy, ebony and violet complement a storybook venue, setting the scene for fantasy bridal drama that takes center stage. Glittering jewels stand out among dark leafy accents and an all-black fashion ensemble, delivering fresh character to a traditional red-and-black palette.

“Go bold and go bright,” says planner Tonya Hoopes of Hoopes Events. “Use color to your advantage to create a rich, luxury-event look. Find ways to be creative, and add elements to your arrangements that make them uniquely you.” Take these florals as an example: rich pops of color stand out against nontraditional black-leaved foundations. Dark purple tulips, classic red roses and blushing calla lily brighten the palette for luscious centerpieces placed on every table.

Try elegance on for size with fantasy-worthy bridals at dusk. A luxe lace gown teams with timelessly romantic candlelight and richly textured linens for a high-gloss sweethearts setting.

For this sublime scene, details reign supreme: delicate lace sleeves and dainty jewels bring sophisticated polish to a fairy-tale bridal ensemble, all grounded by flowing florals and expertly curated table settings. Lux chargers foster the day’s palette with gilded edges and richly colored napkin settings that serve as a chic backdrop for a sleek, simple menu card.

Bring on the after-party with the perfect dose of sparkle. Eye-catching earrings, a glistening gown in a suave and flirty silhouette, and contemporary dessert displays are the recipe for success when it comes to a full-glam reception.

“The cake is a great avenue to really play with tradition,” Hoopes says. Here, the team pairs a classic gold-accented round cake with a second ultramodern square tiered cake, complete with geometric details that bring deconstructed dimension to the dessert spread.
