When a British rockstar and his totally goth-glam bride-to-be tie the knot, you know you’re in for an a fabulous treat. Sam and Ben’s day certainly did not disappoint our expectations! Deciding on the beautiful Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina (chosen by the groom because it reminded him of his English roots), the posh setting made for a surprising complement to their drama-inspired wedding day. And yes, everything from their outfits to the wedding cake dripped with their own unique styles. The groom instantly had our attention in the first few shots captured by Black & Hue photography by rocking a blue-grey, denim-print suit and a studded belt. Bride Sam took a more classic approach by wearing a strapless white wedding dress with intricate bead detailing. Rest assured that her look wasn’t all tradition and no spunk — she showed off her personality by accenting her dress with a black tulle birdcage veil, vibrant red lipstick and studded silver heels! The wedding party looks were no less show-stopping. The groomsmen, who happened to be the groom’s Asking Alexandria bandmates, all wore suits matching the groom’s and each showed off their individuality by wearing different rockstar-worthy belts. The bridesmaids followed suit by mimicking the bride’s “classic with a twist” wedding day style by wearing mismatched little black dresses and killer heels of their own choosing. However, the part of the day that really made us take pause was the ballroom reception. Overflowing with edgy accents and the bride’s love of gothic-meets-glamour details, we can easily say that we’ve never seen anything quite like the celebration the bride and groom and expert planner, Weddings with Tara, put together. Featuring a palette of deep reds, blacks and silvers, they worked to create an atmosphere that was romantic, yet non-traditional. Small tea candles and string lights gave the room a soft glow while statement red floral centerpieces and metal birdcage details drew focus to the tables around the room. However, not much could distract from the most eye-catching details of the night — the white wedding cake with black lace designs and the electric guitar guestbook. As you have probably figured out by now, there’s a whole lot of pretty in the images below. So, get ready, Sam and Ben’s day is coming right at you!
We just adore how Ben and Sam showed off their styles on their big day! Don’t you?
