{Tis the Season}

Tis The Season!
Winter weddings can be quite amazing! The trick is to use touches of the holiday spirit and not overdo it. Think Winter Wedding not Christmas Wedding. Although I've added in the image of the ornaments, I caution you to minimize the use of true "Christmas" items.
Pine cones, cranberries and mistletoe can give a rustic feel. By adding a bit of shine, it can truly emulate the glistening white snow and really add a sense of elegance. So use it, but use it sparingly.
Lastly, a fur or faux fur cover up is a must! While you have all night to show off your dress in all its glory, don't forget to get some photos (outdoors) with your fur. Also, matching stoles for your bridesmaids is just icing on the cake!

{Holiday in Color}

Holiday in Color
More and more couples are combining their big day with the holiday's. Christmas and New Years Eve are among two of the most popular. By taking a more modern approach to the traditional "green and red" color palette, the overall feel is warm, inviting, but not overtly "christmas."
Choosing small details such as the greenery and floral arrangements commonly associate with the holiday season is a great place to start.
