1. Rustic Winter Harvest Wedding With A Boho Spirit

    Love.  Its often described through certain colors, certain flowery descriptors.  The truth is, love doesnt fit into one perfect box.  Love is also deep, dark, mysterious, brooding, angry, fierce, tormented and often wildly intense.  While today is surely to be filled with stereotypical interpretations,  I offer a version of the moody side in the form of The Gather Workshop.  A collection of Michigan's wedding pros got together to create a unique and thoughtful styled shoot that is a gorgeous marriage of rustic winter meets harvest wedding.  Working with the stark and bare world that fills our field of vision in the winter months, the team brought life to the harvest wedding by utilizing a bounty of earthly goods.  Fresh elements like ornamental and real cabbages, artichokes, carrots, peppers, apples and so much more appear in places like bouquets and table settings.  From a wedding fashion standpoint, the dress is boho chic, accented by the lush and overflowing floral crown, a harvest wedding must.  Our bride's winter wrap and antler detailing are reminders of season, while a table nestled between the evergreen's provides the perfect amount of green to take our minds...

  2. Rustic Elegant Wedding Perfection At Tennessee’s Candoro Marble Factory

    Of all the different styles one could put together when it comes to wedding design, a true favorite for me is rustic elegance. It is also, in my opinion, one that isn’t the easiest to pull off. As a rule, to craft a wedding like this, you need to start with an elegant wedding style as a foundation much the way TeamWedding, and The Bride Link have done. To then massage in rustic wedding décor, you need to understand the nuances that make it so, allowing that to guide your décor selections. Simply opting for a wood table isn’t quite enough. Choose the wrong one and it looks more ragged than sophisticated. French country style does an unbelievably gorgeous job of crafting rustic elegance. Polished, yet gently worn, natural and wholesome all while encompassing regal perfection, much the way the natural wood table and modern black plates from All Occasion Tent & Party Rentals do. Location is key, you can almost never have any sort of an elegant wedding without a venue that first exudes elegance, much like the one here at the incredible Candoro Marble Factory. Then there is the fashion, it’s pretty impossible to have an elegant wedding without stunning wedding attire choices that drip in style like the Gilded Gown and Regal Tuxedo showcased here. Driving this dreamy rustic elegant wedding home is the artful eye...

    A winter wedding is a unique experience unlike one during any other season.  Couples that opt for a cold weather wedding don't just simply identify with the season but utterly adore the little details that go along with it.  A team of Oregon wedding pros sought to capture the spirit of a winter wedding, all while putting their cozy chic twist on it.  Set in the misty boysenberry fields of Butler Barn, Oregon wedding photographer Hazel Eye Photography was on hand to bring the cold weather vision to life in a perfectly moody way.  Teaming up with Peachy Keen Coordination & Thistle and Fern Floral, some of the very best aspects of a winter world were chosen to play with. Imagine a cozy lounge setup, complete with plaid throw blanket, furry winter boots and oversized hot chocolates.  A petite evergreen adorned with thinly sliced wood ornaments turned guest book.  A personal favorite to the Oregon winter wedding, a stunning white wedding cake featuring a cable knit sweater fondant overlay!  To bring the winter bridal look, real flowers and berries were woven into the hair, while a rosebud wrap served as warmth.  Lastly, farm elements like an old Ford pickup, boysenberry fields backdrop and a surprise guest in the form of Hei Hei the wonderfully cool Silkie chicken made an appearance bringing everything together.  If you're considering a winter wedding yourself I implore you to take this cold temperature beauty as winter inspiration gold!
