For the tone I was looking for I needed the lighting to be dramatic so I chose to use a 500ws strobe with an octabox for nice soft light that would wrap around the couple. I didn’t want the table to be overly distracting so I aimed the strobe carefully to not spill too much on the table, and I matched my exposure to allow the candlelight to fill in instead of using a fill light. The results came out great! The light created a soft spotlight around the couple that also bounced off the curtains to subtly backlight them.
