Dark + Moody Winter Wedding Inspiration Dripping with Burgundy Pops

Dark and Moody Winter Wedding Inspiration

Oh my CONTRAST! Today, we’re heading to the snowy mountains of the Pacific Northwest to the Snoqualmie Pass (about an hour outside of Seattle), for winter wedding inspiration dripping with burgundy pops and lots of black accents. Which, when paired with the pristine white backdrop, make for insanely gorgeous and striking shots!

Willow & Ivy Events tells us: the intention of this shoot was to combine dark, moody colors and the bright white snow up in the mountains. Black and deep burgundy tones set the stage for the moody aesthetic, while the bride twirls in the glistening snow. Also, the bride in this shoot is not only a real Willow & Ivy Events bride — but is also the florist (Petal + Vine Floral Design)!

Prepare to absolutely melt over this snowy set in the photos captured by Breanna Marie Photography!

All those pops of red, especially when paired with the black and white are so striking! Can you see the small scrolls in the wine glasses that served as place cards? Too cute!
