Avant-Garde Winter Wedding Inspiration on a Vineyard

Avant Garde Tuscan Wedding Inspiration

Tucked away in Southern Maryland is a slice of Tuscany called Running Hare Vineyard. Looking to add some spunk to the grounds, Christine McFarlane Events and Brooke Michelle Photography teamed up with avant-garde winter wedding inspiration on their minds:

Although late winter isn’t the most popular time to have a wedding at a vineyard, we wanted to show off the serene, versatile backdrop that winter hands us in Southern Maryland. The wintry golden hour, natural textures, and open fields are something to celebrate in and of itself.

They settled on a color palette of mustard yellow, jade, and mauve, fused with the textures of wood grain, velvet, and faux furs. The not-so-subtle textured details brought an eclectic touch and added warmth to the winter day!

Ready to get a cozy and inspired for winter? Let’s go!

The team topped off the ceremony site with a emerald backdrop to add a shade of green not found in the scheme of the season. Wooden chairs lined the aisle, dotted with furry pillows and textured blankets to keep guests cozy.

To bring in more cozy textures, the table was lined with faux fur! The stand alone floral centerpiece mimicked the overgrown, organic shape of the bridal bouquet, and wooden place cards greeted guests at each place setting.
