Winter Wedding Inspiration: Old English Hunting Parties

winter wedding inspiration in the snow

After this morning’s wedding with surprise snow, I figured there might be quite a few of you lovely couples out there planning a winter wedding, so lots of fun winter inspiration today! This inspirational shoot is based off the idea of old English Hunting parties. Super fun! And the location is the Seven Oaks Farm, a brand new gorgeous wedding venue located in the scenic St. Croix Valley of Minnesota. There is a lovely orchard and a beautiful Wisconsin style barn with large doors on both sides so you can see straight through. Sounds like a great location for those of you in Minnesota dreaming of a barn wedding! :) Big thanks to the duo of Erin + Carly with Erin Johnson Photography for the design + photos today!

Our tabletop has three floral arrangements nestled amongst varied mercury glass hurricanes and ivory tapers on a reclaimed wood runner atop a moss runner. Blue Camilla Spode sits on a deep red charger with an ivory napkin draped underneath. Red sprayed branches are suspended above the table. Upholstered chairs flank the table. Don’t miss the tiny faun peeking over the arm of the chair!
