Ravyn and Typer’s love story begins online. Fast forward to six years later, and they’ve built a magical home where they hosted their COVID-friendly Halloween wedding. Dark and moody with candles and tones of black, crimson, and gold throughout - this backyard celebration was anything but ordinary. The bride wore an open-back black tulle gown from Blush Fashion, paired with a rhinestone headband and a bold red lip, while the groom kept it cool with black dress pants, boots, and a vintage leather jacket. From the magical decor, blackberry-covered cake, to the couple’s gemstone-filled wedding rings, each detail was custom made with love. Congratulations Ravyn and Typer! May you continue to sprinkle your magic and bring people together under the stars
