O’Malley Photographers has the right idea with this photo shoot. Winter Weddings are some of the most romantic affairs ever. The snow, the cozy details by Ira & Lucy Vintage Rentals, the winter white florals by Taylor’d Events mixed with pops of color for an unexpected palette – all those beautiful bits are driving that most romantic ever point home. Grab all the inspiration your little hearts desire right here in the full gallery.
This shoot is inspired by the glamour and winter wonder of Sun Valley, Idaho and the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. We married the themes of classic elegance and natural beauty by shooting at the historic Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch, and incorporated lots of elegant, classic furniture and decor from Ira & Lucy. We created the color pallet of mint, emerald, gold and cream, accented with copper, a mix of the natural winter colors that spread over the local landscape. Dress Designer, Daci Johnson, created a swoon-worthy, gatsyby-esque gown with lace sleeves and a fur balero to keep our bride warm. In creating this shoot we imagined a couple that love the outdoors and want their wedding to be the perfect blend of natural, yet high-class. This would be the perfect setting for city dwellers wanting to escape with friends and family to one of the most gorgeous places on earth.
Locally grown fare and iconic people of Sun Valley inspired our menus. Sun Valley was home to the infamous Ernest Hemingway and in trying to incorporate masculine elements, Sally Balt from La Happy calligraphied amazing menus to include the E. Hemingway Special and a Whiskey Old Fashioned, his drinks of choice. Local cake artist, The Sweet Crumb, crafted a classic ombre cake and locally grown huckleberry milkshakes were offered. Guests could participate in an excess of winter activities including ice-skating, skiing, and snowshoeing around the grounds of the ranch or cozy up fireside with a mug of hot cocoa. Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch (as seen in Sunset Magazine and Martha Stewart Weddings) made the perfect location for this shoot.
