Winter Wedding Inspiration Shoot

Hello hello and happy Monday, friends! I know the Monday after a long holiday weekend is never especially fun so I thought I’d start the week with some truly lovely winter wedding inspiration to get us all in the spirit of the holiday season. Think lots of sparkle, hot cocoa, a pine cone cake topper, a roaring fire and pretty rustic details reminscient of holidays in New England. Sent over by Henry & Masci Photography, this is just the thing …

Despite an unseasonably warm weekend, I find myself starting to grow more excited about winter and the upcoming holiday season. Living in the Northeast means long, brutal winters, but it also brings the thrill of watching each season meld into the next and that never gets boring for me. I’ve been craving cold winter nights and big mugs of steamy hot chocolate lately and love the idea of serving cocoa at a winter wedding. Add homemade marshmallows, chocolate shavings or …

We’re gearing up for a hot and humid weekend here so this winter-inspired tablescape for the Inspired Creations Contest feels pleasantly unique today.

Here in Upstate New York we’re experiencing a record breaking snow drought – usually by this time in the season we’ve had at least a few snow storms, but yesterday it was nearly 60 degrees! I never thought I would say it, but I am ready for snow. The holiday season just doesn’t feel right in New York without snow. So I took it upon myself to find some wintery wedding inspiration, something with lots of snow so I could …

With all of this talk of the holidays and winter, I got thinking about one of my favorite weddings that cropped up here and there in the blog world last year, that of Little Winter Bride. This wedding date backs to February 2008 and it may or may not have helped elevate both wedding cupcakes and colored wedding shoes to all new levels. I love this wedding for the simple easy details, the fabulous Prada shoes and for …
