It may be March here in the Midwest, but there is more snow in the forecast! This dark and moody winter wedding inspiration is the perfect cure to our winter blues.
Science…is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense…is surely spiritual.” -Carl Sagan. Gathering those you love for a Winter Solstice Wedding has a particular beauty for those who live in the great North. This is the “longest night” appreciated by those who love the cool beauty and romanticism of the starry heavens and also the warm beauty of that greatest star…the return of the sun. Our sun will begin rising earlier and setting later from this night forward, as the tilt of our axis and our annual orbit determines on this particular date, and so it makes for a lovely and auspicious time to begin a marriage! The rich cosmological theme of the styling for this wedding symbolizes the astronomical significance of seasonal constellations and our soulful place in our home solar system. There is a playful dynamic between the science of astronomy and the myths of astrology. In relation to love and marriage there is an ode toward starborn lovers, and also a nod toward that moment of “yes” within the eternal source of love; two stars within the vast infinity of the universe. And, of course, in the starlit depths of winter there is the extraordinary beauty of a celebratory candlelit feast! – Jeannine Marie Photography
