White + Gold Winter Wedding Inspiration

green garland ceremony arbor

It really doesn’t get more classic than a white + gold palette and today’s beautiful wedding editorial has so many pretty ideas + design elements that will perfectly lend themselves to a winter wedding or holiday party! Kelly at Mint Photography was instantly inspired the moment she walked into Carrington Crossing in Buda, Texas – a brand new event space that just opened this fall. She tells us, Primarily the pale colored walls with their beautiful chipping paint, the colors that were exposed under the paint, and the light coming from the window… We knew it was the perfect spot to style a fall themed bridal shoot. We incorporated a mix of pale whites, rich greens, and golds as well as wooden accents to bring in a warm fall feel. The entire shoot was shot in film which we felt brought more warmth to the images and enhanced the beautiful tones of the venue around us. So she teamed up with Pink Parasol Designs and Coordinating + Bristol Lane Florals, grabbed a pretty dress from Blush Bridal Lounge* + accessories from Olivia Nelson and staged the sweetest setting filled with nothing but lush greenery and white + gold details…

A Wedding at an Old Power Station in Spain: Nuria + Daan

Old Power Station wedding in Spain

We love seeing how couples from all around the globe choose to create a day that’s unique to them. For Nuria + Daan, who tied the knot in Spain at Museo de la energía (an old power station that’s been converted into the National Museum of Energy), that meant including fun DIY details in every corner of the amazing space and expressing their shared love of music + color through the event design executed by The Love Forest. We love that N + D used different areas of the museum for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception, so guests were constantly drawn into a new setting. They knew from the start that they wanted a not-so-typical Spanish wedding + we think that’s exactly what they got! And we’re so glad f2studio was there to perfectly document it all…

We love how Nuria arrived at the ceremony bike! She tell us, We live in Amsterdam where the bike is the most common type of transport so, instead of using a luxurious car, we arranged a bike and got a friend of Daan’s to drive me into the ceremony!

A note about the super fun marquee above, I call Daan “Tuli” (from the Spanish word Tulipan), because he’s Dutch and Holland is the country of Tulips. That is why our friends call us “Los Tulis” and we called our wedding Tuliwedding. The naming of the event really made it a little more special than just calling it our wedding. And of course we used a lot of Tulips for the decoration.

Try to organize the event YOU want it to be! It is very hard to do something different because everyone thinks they know how to organize your wedding. But instead of following the traditional wedding packages, try to stay true to your initial ideas. This way you will also enjoy your wedding so much more in the end!
