Chic + Romantic Winter Wedding Inspiration

In my dream world, this is what winter would look like – crisp, clear, and not a snowflake in sight. It would still have that warmth and intimacy that we crave this time of year and add in some romance, and we have the perfect recipe for a winter wedding. Designed by Atrendy Wedding, with a Buttercream Bakeshop cake that is that I can’t stop thinking of, and hair and makeup magic by Amie Decker Beauty, this shoot captured by Amelia Johnson is just the right thing to put us all in the approaching seasonal mood. Join me in our Vault gallery right here!

From Atrendy WeddingAn ultra-feminine lace gown and a romantic updo, a gold palette with whispers of green and burgundy, and an intimate reception setting in a wine cellar set the stage for an opulent winery photo shoot with understated winter details. Over-the-top florals, candlelight, shimmer, and subtle wintery details came together perfectly under Amelia Johnson’s talented lens.

Inspiration for an Intimate Dinner Party-Style Wedding

As many weddings become decidedly more intimate, with smaller guest lists and family-style settings, this inspiration shoot photographed by Kate Ignatowski couldn’t be more relevant to today’s bride and groom. It brings the natural, organic vibe to a Southern back porch reception, and includes thoughtful details like the stationery suite designed by Amanda Day Rose. Cozy up in the gallery right this way.

From Kate Ignatowski PhotographyThis photo shoot was set at Upper Shirley Vineyard, in Charles City, Virginia. The vineyard is set on the peaceful banks of the James River across from a wildlife refuge, making you want to slow down, sip a glass of wine, and enjoy quality time with your friends and family. This feeling was the inspiration behind our shoot.

We chose a natural color palette that complimented the blues and greens of our surroundings. And incorporated loose organic florals with flowing greenery in the ceremony design as well as the reception tablescape. There we sought to inspire an intimate dinner party feel on the extra wide, very southern, back porch. Here we imagine couples will gather, making unforgettable memories with their family and friends. One of my favorite elements was the greenery structure hanging over our reception table. The team worked so hard on this and it came together looking effortless. I also just couldn’t get over the Claire Pettibone gown. It was an absolute dream to photograph the intricate details and flowing fabric.
