Cool Tones, Crisp Edges, Soft Touches

Inspiration for winter wedding fashion and winter wedding florals

Years ago, I was one of those brides who thought deeply about the aesthetics—the winter wedding fashion and florals, the overall event design—and very little about the practicality associated with the atmosphere that I wanted to create. I had a backless dress for an outdoor wedding in late November. Although it was stunning and as warm is it could have it was still 65 degrees. Now, after years of experience in the events industry, I think carefully about both pieces of the puzzle.

The styling for the winter wedding fashion and florals for this couple blends warm soft tones with icy cool colors. It emphasizes the warmth of feeling between the newlyweds and the wintery season around them. Instead of settling for a traditional bridal look, Lila and Builder pair their gown and suit with heavily textured sweaters. In addition to being a unique statement, the sweaters are also a practical choice for these fairy-tale images at the foot of Lookout Mountain. Because of these details, these images provide inspiration for a late winter wedding or an early spring wedding.

The floral pieces, which were themselves unique in the way that they were designed for the couple, used a variety of sharp to pillowy-soft textures. For example, ingredients for the groom’s floral collar and the bride’s hairpiece included velvety tweedia, cloud-like bunny tail grass, jagged bleached ruscus, prickly banksia, fuzzy kochi, and other interesting textures.

Ruth was an amazing photographer to work with. If you love this, check out the wine-reds, bright corals, deep purples, and moody greens of this fall session with her on a little island in Tennessee.

Flowers are both the culmination and the unification of all of the other wedding elements. A beautiful, purposeful arrangement declares, "this is beauty; this is the joy that was always intended."
