With winter almost a week away, we couldn’t help but to share this woodsy winter wedding inspiration. It is so romantic with a beautiful tablescape. Grab your mug of hot cocoa, cuddle up, and enjoy!
If you’ve ever lived through a Michigan winter you can understand how pleasantly painful they can be. The snow is breathtaking at times, but the brisk air that accompanies it is the “painful” part. Cabin fever was fully set in once the thought of our shoot arose. After spending nearly two weeks in the negative temperatures, we felt the need to capture the natural beauty of winter that surrounded us. We chose mother natures backyard for our location because what else captures natural beauty than being in a sea of snow with the most perfect tree line acting as a back drop. Selecting a color palate of blush, marsala, and shades of rich greens, everything started to snowball into place (pun intended). The silver dollar eucalyptus couldn’t have been more perfectly paired with pink spray roses & cremone. We even incorporated hints of the phragmites growing at our location. Using a sweetheart table and numerous pillar candles helped romanticize the scene. The subtle touches of gold added a luxurious quality to contrast the natural elements. Our Bride & Groom were the best sports! It was 14 degrees out on this particular day. While we are all working behind the scenes bundled up with every piece of winter attire imaginable, they were only left with hand warmers to bare the cold! We took many breaks indoors, to warm up and enjoy some homemade hot cocoa. Another fun fact about this shoot, that sweet little pup you see, Balto, was visiting with his foster mom who so kindly allowed him to make an appearance. The photographer, Shannon, ended up rescuing him & he joined her family the next day. Warms your heart, doesn’t it?! The best part about these inspirational shoots is working with your closest of vendor friends. It never gets old being with this group of incredibly talented individuals. Being able to collaborate your thoughts & make dreams a reality is what drives my passion for this industry. – Nicole at Beautiful Day Planning, LLC
