When we think of a red wedding, usually the first image to come to mind is the gruesome scene from the third season of Game of Thrones. Thankfully, tattoo and make-up artist Kat Von D is now giving us a much less bloody, much more beautiful alternative thanks to her stunning red-themed wedding, including a red wedding dress.
Kat Von D married her fiancé, musician Leafar Seyer (real name Rafael Reyes) earlier this month, and the pair are sharing images from their big day. Creating a nice day for a red wedding, the newlyweds used the red theme throughout every inch of their ceremony and reception, including Von D’s stunning gown.
Seyer shared an image of his bride on his Instagram account, with Von D’s red veil held up by a horn crown, accentuated by a high collar sitting at the top of her gown. Blending tradition and Von D’s love of goth, the dress is a perfect fit for the reality star who recently celebrated the 10-year anniversary of her make-up line, Kat Von D Beauty.
Showing off more of the gorgeous gown in a side angle picture, Von D and Seyer put their own spin on their ceremony by having an acrobat in a full-body red lycra suit carry Von D’s veil down the aisle. That’s one type of bridesmaid dress you couldn’t possibly wear again.
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…
The red theme was used throughout the wedding, including the couple’s wedding cake. Von D shared a picture from the couple’s wedding cake testing, which included many types of red vegan cake. Instead of gifts, the animal lovers asked their guests to donate to an animal rights organization.
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
Red carnations and red candles were also used to help set the mood for the couple’s wedding.
@prayers and I woke up to the most amazing pre-wedding gift from my dear friends over at @birenandco! @birenandco has been my fave #vegan candle company forever and are helping me out with the decor of our upcoming wedding. We just weren’t expecting this breathtaking gift today! Thank you, @birenandco ! #envidayenmuerte
Guests of the wedding were treated to a very special gift thanks to Kat Von D’s beauty team. Posting a video on her Insta page, Von D showed off one-of-a-kind black lipstick with gold flecks that was given to each wedding guest. The new colour won’t be for sale as part of Von D’s make-up line, but it does up the ante on cool presents for wedding guests.
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!

In addition to their wedding, Kat Von D and her new-husband Leafar Seyer have even more reasons to celebrate. The pair recently announced they’re expecting a baby boy and while we can’t be sure, we’re assuming the nursery will be red.
