Emerald Green Winter Wedding Inspiration

We’re in the mood for a little gift giving this weekend, and today we’re sharing the gift of pretty.  Think emerald green hues, gorgeous details and a rustic meets elegant vibe, all wrapped up in a bundle of inspiration from a talented team of vendors including Jeff Brummett VisualsEverly Alaine Florals and Dallas Affaires Cakes.  Get the party started right here

From Jeff Brummett Visuals… This dreamy shoot takes place on a cold winter day at Rustic Grace Estate, a venue with 25 acres, a newly renovated 1920′s barn and a three acre lake. The charming venue with its old barn wood, rustic setting, and pasture filled with longhorn cattle created the perfect backdrop. The weather was very appropriate for a winter shoot and the hot chocolate bar was the perfect cure for the cold.

The emerald green color was carried throughout every detail from the ring to the cake. The bride wore a stunning two-tone emerald engagement ring designed by Nan Lee Jewelry. The banquet table was filled with decadent goodies, such as blackberry pie, green macaroons, roasted vegetables, raisin sourdough bread, and an almond and cranberry salad to name a few.

Just like the bride’s ring, the dishes were a beautiful combination of both silver and gold tones and featured gorgeous antique emerald plates. The head table was seated neatly under a greenery chandelier full of lush winter greens.

The bride wore a fully beaded gown from Blushing Bride Boutique and bundled up in a fur stole to keep warm. She carried a bouquet mixed with white blooms and winter greens, heavy on the greens, with a loose, organic feel. Her Maid of Honor wore a deep green dress from Bella Bridesmaid. Despite the cold temperature and the winter wind, nothing could keep this group of creatives from bringing their vision to life.

Lakeside Winter Wedding Inspiration

There’s something so warming about a love shining bright on a serene winter day. It’s the reason we’ve come to adore weddings of this cozy season, so very much. And this shoot from Mint PhotographyVIVID Events and Swoon Rentals + Design wraps all that seasonal spirit up into one pretty package, where rich reds, black satin ribbons and bow ties and soft cotton touches take center stage. Feast your eyes on more gorgeous right here!


From Jordan with Swoon Rentals + DesignTucked away amongst the trees lies a hidden cove on Belton Lake where the sunset barely hits the water on a still, winter day. So is the place where an idyllic canoe ride seems fitting for a new groom and his bride, drawing them in for a romantic picturesque love story. Natural, serene winter elegance was our aspiration for this inspiration shoot and we selected deep reds, grey, black velvet and fur with lush greens to portray a sense of winter elegance. Cedar Ridge Park with its breathtaking lakeside sunset view, sweet cabins and tall trees was the ideal backdrop for flawless photos taken by Mint Photography.

We chose a mix of substance and texture throughout the shoot to attain the winter feel: gorgeous white tulle, grey flannel plaid, black velvet ribbon, black mink, earthy wood slices and brass metals. The impeccable attention to detail brought to the table by Lovely Leaves is picture-perfect with red piano roses, red David Austin Darby roses, tulips, red anemones, brunia, winter greenery and soft cotton. From the full red bouquet to the lush green blanket of willow eucalyptus on the mantle, each element embodies beauty. The red antique Evette sofa, fresh grey mantle, inherited barnwood table and cool cane-back chairs are Swoon favorites and fit the style wholly. A reflection of the tall trees and wild elements of Cedar Ridge Park, the stationery suite and menus delivered by Studio W Designs fulfilled our hearts’ desires. For dessert, Lily’s Cakes baked a delicious three-tiered cake with salted caramel buttercream filling thick between the layers topped with romantic red garden roses and exquisite ivy.

Shelbey and Zach are the most darling couple and we are dying in anticipation of their actual engagement. The delicate Allure gown she wore was a beautiful mix of handmade lace and soft, wedding-white tulle provided by Georgio’s Bridal. A black sash was the perfect accent. To keep warm during the cold winter nights, we chose a luxurious black, floor-length mink coat passed down from generations, previously worn to the most grand affairs. It was important that the bride’s natural beauty shine through—Nory from Be.YOU.tiful Salon chose natural, loose curls to pair with our winter floral headpiece. Kimberly Cutler Professional Make-Up used warm, alluring eye make-up perfect for hazel eyes with deep red lips to accentuated already perfect features.

Thanks to Lindsey Shea and Sweet Pea Events for this Christmastime gem!

From the planner…It’s the most wonderful time of the year! So what better time to get engaged was the question I asked myself when looking for my latest inspiration. A Christmas tree farm is the perfect festive backdrop for an engagement to take place complete with all of your favorite holiday goodies – Christmas trees, gifts, jingle bells, gingerbread men, and even a little sprinkle of snow! With some amazing vendors we pulled this holiday themed proposal together to spread some Christmas cheer + inspiration for the upcoming season! Happy Holidays!
