Winter Weddings

A couple of weeks ago, we featured an incredibly fun floral photo shoot that Courtenay Lambert sent to us. Pure and passionate fun! {here}

Courtenay also sent us some gorgeous images from one of her winter weddings ... Patricia and Adam's elegant November celebration that we think you'll love as well ...

from Patricia ...

We wanted the wedding to be simple but classy - The Lyceum was the perfect back drop to create such a feeling. Combined with the flowers, candles, music, food, and champagne!! It was perfect!. The gold dresses and accents were a nice nod to the holidays without being too much.  Since the wedding was in November, which can be dreadful in Cincinnati, the gold helped keep things warm and inviting. With our move to Switzerland 2 months prior to the wedding, we wanted to bring a few touches of Switzerland - The Swiss Chocolates were direct from the Lindt factory here in Zurich, Switzerland; the Swiss theme Cookies were made by "Cake Creations by Sue", and the Swiss flag baggage tags were used for table assignments and then kept as favours. It was an easy way for us to provide our new contact information as well as open up an invite for visitors.

Simple and classy ... warm and inviting ... perfect ...

Courtenay's gorgeous bouquets and centerpieces added just the right amount of color to the elegant color scheme used throughout the wedding.

Patricia's make-up was done by one of Cincinnati's best ... Little Black Book vendor, Brideface. Seriously ~ look at the close-ups ... just beautiful.

{And by the way, Nancy has really great beauty and make-up advice on her Brideface blog.}

Patricia's wedding gown was by Nicole Miller. Her stunning coat was custom-made by ... an unnamed designer. (So sorry ... we definitely WILL try to get that information for you!)
