I have to admit – I have been seriously craving summer. But this gorgeous shoot from the lovely state of Wisconsin? It has me remembering just why winter is so very, very awesome. A sweet combination of snowy weather, crazy gorgeous colors and a team of talented vendors (think Kate Weinstein, Sugar River Stationers and Laura Timmer), it’s the prettiest way ever to spend your Thursday. See it all here.
From Kate Weinstein Photo… I am excited to share our Snowy Old World Wedding inspiration shoot with you!
Here in Wisconsin, one thing is almost always certain: if it’s winter, we will have snow on the ground. Towards the end of winter, Wisconsinites tend to tire of snow, but all that white really can be a beautiful complement to a bride’s dress and a winter wedding. I wanted the colors of this shoot to play off the white snow and the blue of Milwaukee’s frozen Lake Michigan, and this muted dusty blue, white, and mauve color palette would be perfect for a snowy and romantic winter wedding.
When I think Old World, I think timeless, European-style elegance, and that feeling was the inspiration for this shoot. BHLDN provided their elegant Cypress gown, luxuriously paired with their Effie fur topper. Lizzibeth contributed the jewels to accent the dress worn by our model Katelyn Kosinski, with hair and makeup by Laura Timmer. The Home Market in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward provided the table, table settings, and many of the props seen in the shoot. Sugar River Stationers created the invitation suite, and the flowers were a mix of hellebores (one of the few flowers that bloom in snow!), ranunculus, spray roses, garden roses, tulips, and privet berry.
Thank you so much for considering this submission, and please let me know if I can provide you with any additional information! Stay warm! xo
