This one checks all my boxes. Snow, Northern Michigan, a rustic yet completely chic design from Sincerely, Ginger Weddings & Events. All the fixings for the inspiration shoot that will top all others, at least in my humble opinion. I’ll let you be the judge though, with this stunning gallery, captured by Weber Photography.
From the stylist… With unbeatable scenery, friendly wedding professionals and picture perfect spots for weddings sprinkled all along Lake Michigan, Northern Michigan is an obvious spot for summer destination weddings. When Cory Weber (of Weber Photography) and I met and started talking about the details of our shoot, it was really important to us that we emphasize what gorgeous winters we have here! Snow Moon Ranch was an idyllic venue to bring our vision of a cozy winter wedding to life. Luckily we had a fresh snow the day before.
When designing the table and florals, I knew I wanted to stick with a color scheme of neutral tones and winter whites. To add a little femininity to the rustic venue, I added blush garden roses and pink alstroemeria. We took advantage of the incredible details Snow Moon Ranch already had, and pulled inspiration from the rolling fences, stunning views, and small potted trees that were tucked inside the barn for warmth.
Our incredible bridal model, Katie, wore a show-stopping Casablanca gown with layers upon layers of tulle, and delicate beading on the bodice. We went with a classic look for our Groom, with a black suit and a blush pink and wax flower boutonnière.
For the dessert bar, Kenna from Everything Gal put together an astonishing variety of desserts. She brought in beautiful textures, including a fair isle inspired buttercream cake! The richness of the dessert table was perfect for a winter wedding.
Gatherings Vintage Rentals provided the elegant mixed table settings, which I chose to adorn with a simple tied ribbon and a touch of greenery. The linens were from my private collection, and included a mix of floor length white linens in various textures. I used a tulle tablecloth as a delicate runner to balance the heaviness of the natural white crystal candle holders.
The paper suite, designed by Mo Stych of Everydaying, incorporated neutral and blush tones, also with a fair isle pattern and a quirky last line, “dinner, dancing, llamas”.
