For this inspiration shoot, we wanted to create a romantic, soft, rustic winter wedding with a touch of vintage glam that offered an alternative to silvery, glittery winter weddings (which we also love). We were inspired by lavender and rosemary, and incorporated both throughout the shoot, from the overall color palette to the drink and menu selections to the invitation design. We love the symbolism behind both - lavender is a representation of peace and tranquility, while rosemary is often associated with love and remembrance. Perfect for a winter wedding.
We shot mostly outside on a very cold day (like 19 degrees cold). We loved the isolated feeling and natural beauty of the rustic landscape. The stunning blush "Faith" gown by Karen Willis Holmes from Ceremony Boston added just the right amount of color against the fresh dusting of snow, and the vintage furs rounded out the bride's elegant look while keeping her surprisingly warm. For the groom, we chose a classic look with a navy jacket from 9tailors and topped it off (pun intended) with a fun fedora. We're obsessed with the bride's headband - it glittered so beautifully in the sunlight and added unique vintage-inspired flair.
We used wholesale flowers from FiftyFlowers.com to create simple arrangements, with deliciously fragrant roses, as well as a stunning greens garland that we used both on the tablescape and as a festive ceremony backdrop.
We hope you enjoy our work, and huge thanks to Jenn Bakos for capturing it all so beautifully.
