These Photos Show Kat Von D’s Goth Wedding In All Its Red Splendor
Tattoo artist and makeup mogul Kat Von D is well-known for her edgy, goth aesthetic. When she she tied the knot with Prayers band member Raphael Reyes, no one was surprised that their wedding incorporated her trademark dark style.
The two actually wed back in February, but they held a wedding celebration on June 2 at the Beverly Hills Hotel, and the pictures from the event are stunning — beginning with the bride’s dress. Never one for convention, Von D eschewed the traditional white wedding dress in favor of a red frock designed by Adolfo Sanchez.
Check out her unique bridal look:
Still feeling the emotional electricity from our wedding last night with @prayers. We are spending today together reliving our vows, our beloved friends love, and all the artful beauty we created together, and I promise to share our epic wedding photos with you all soon as well as a bit more of our feelings about everything – as right now, we are both so overwhelmed with all the Love. Con todo la magia y amor en este mundo…
Wow! It looks like her dress was paired with a matching red, dramatic headpiece as well as a long veil. Her husband also shared a photo of his bride, which showed off her makeup for the day, including a bold red lip and winged black eyeliner:
The red theme did not stop with Von D’s bridal style, as evidenced by this photo of the newlyweds seated in front of a red backdrop at a table decorated with beautiful red flowers, posted by guest Cathy Choi:
As party favors, wedding guests received a special Kat Von D Beauty black lipstick with gold flecks that was made exclusively for the occasion:
How amazing is my @katvondbeauty team?! They made us our very own WEDDING LIPSTICK!! This one-of-a-kind black lipstick with large flecks of gold glitter will not be for sale – and instead will be given to each of our guests that are attending our wedding as a keepsake from @prayers and me. Thank you @katvondbeauty family for making this for us! [song: “pagan poetry” by bjork] #envidayenmuerte
About a week before the wedding, Von D posted a preview of the wedding cake at their tasting. Of course, it was red, and according to her caption, the cake was also vegan:
At our wedding menu tasting today! @prayers and I are so excited to be having the most epic #vegan wedding of all time! We love the idea of showing the world that you don’t have to sacrifice luxury/quality by choosing not to exploit animals in any way. We are also excited about not having a gift registry and instead have guests who might be inspired to gift us, donate to one of our favourite animal rights organizations: @AnimalEquality on our behalf instead! #animalliberationishumanliberation
Even the invitations were super-dramatic and on-theme, as shown by Markus Biren in a video posted to Instagram:
Biren also helped create a beautiful candle installation for the event and shared photos of the striking decor:
What do you think? Do you love the look of this over-the-top wedding, or is it too off the beaten path for your tastes?
