Cozy Winter Wedding Inspiration

Today’s cozy winter wedding inspiration, photographed by Megan Hayes, is sure to lend a bit of guidance to all of you planning a wintry celebration with a little holiday flair. The shoot took place at Old Newhall Barn in Santa Clarita, California and is chock full of rustic details like tartan textiles, wood textures, and deer silhouettes. Add in some fun ideas like a hot cocoa bar, holiday pies on a stick and some perfectly festive florals and you have the recipe for a joyful holiday bash or pretty winter wedding!

The pretty paper goods, designed by Sloane Harmony Design, perfectly capture the spirt of the season!

And I totally adore the idea of the groom wearing a cozy cardigan for a cold-weather wedding!

A hot cocoa station is just the right addition to a winter wedding or holiday party!
