Festive Holiday Wedding Inspiration

festive holiday inspiration

Since our team is based in sunny SoCal, scenes of snow always seem to be especially loved around here. So, the moment we laid eyes on today’s festive winter editorial, captured by Callie Hobbs + Lori Romney, we knew sharing this one the week of Christmas would be a definite.

Callie + the team she put together knew they wanted to venture away from the typical red + green color palette that seems to always represent this time of year. Callie says, Oranges kept popping back into my mind. Tis’ the season for this citrus fruit that always made it’s way into my stocking since I was a little child. From the orange inspiration, stemmed the cinnamon sticks, cider, berries, and other festive holiday treats.

Sounds pretty perfect to us! Let’s see what they created…

We love this bridal look for a winter wedding! A lace top paired with a tulle skirt from Bliss Tulle was just right for the chilly surroundings.

The team brought their inspiration directly to the tablescape with pretty details like orange place cards, patterned tableware + lush florals.

Rustic-Bohemian Portland Winery Wedding: Emily + Anton

cherry blossoms

It’s Christmas week + we’re definitely getting into the holiday swing of things, but today’s pretty wedding, captured beautifully by Dylan and Sara Photography, offers us a much needed pause from the yuletide hustle. Emily + Anton’s Clay Pigeon Winery wedding (in Portland, Oregon) epitomized intimate + cozy, with rustic wood elements, bohemian furnishings + sprawling, beautiful floral arrangements. Truly some pretty ideas to take note on if you’re throwing an indoor wedding in 2015! And for those fully in a Christmastime state of mind, don’t you fret: there are still plenty of festive details and a pretty red, green + gold palette if you feel like you just have to find a little bit of holiday eye candy in everything you see this week! Here’s more about their big day from Emily:

I really wanted to get married on a rug. I know that sounds a bit ridiculous, but I designed my wedding based on that. Therefore, we decided to go with “Rustic Bohemian” – I incorporated a Cow Skull with flowers hanging from it as the backdrop of our ceremony, antlers on the tables with gold vases (most of which I found at goodwill) filled with amazing flowers and gold candlesticks. We wanted our wedding to be simple, classy and romantic – it was absolutely perfect.

There were so many memorable memories – marrying my best friend, being in the same room with everyone we love most – but I would have to say the speeches were amazing – especially my 12 year old nephew (and best man) Gavin.

This truly was the best day ever. The decision to have a small, intimate wedding was the best decision we could have made. It allowed us to have a wedding that signified us as a couple – and maybe I’m biased, but I think we’re pretty awesome…

We think so, too! Big congrats, Emily + Anton, on a totally beautiful day!

Sparkly, Modern New Year’s Eve Wedding Inspiration

xo gold balloons

Are any of you lovelies tying the knot this New Year’s Eve? We have to say, we’re kind of in love with the idea. Everyone’s already in party mode, lots of your guests will likely have time off from work, and you can add as much sparkle as you want to your celebration without feeling the least bit silly about it! Today’s festive shoot, photographed by Athena Pelton and conceptualized/designed by Maddy of Splendid Supply Co. is the perfect example of what we’re talkin’ about. Maddy partnered with Dani of Studio Fleurette to develop a palette they both loved for New Year’s Eve: black, white, silver, gold + navy. We love the updated take on the colors you traditionally see on NYE + the design elements they came up with are so good, too.

Maddy says, We incorporated lots of fun and festive details, including some favorite selections from Splendid Supply Co. (like our gold foil favor bags, our silver glitter heart cake topper, and our white heart cupcake toppers), tissue paper confetti from The Flair Exchange, gold foil invitations from Minted, and balloon tassel garlands from Glam Fete. The finished product is fun, festive, and fabulous!

NYE just begs for fun cocktails + lots of confetti! These gold + silver tinsel drink sticks by Em for Marvelous were a perfect choice.
