Outdoor Whimsical Winter Wedding Inspiration

A winter wedding is not only beautiful, but you can save money by getting married in the not so popular months of Jan – March. Lots of vendors + venues will have discounted rates for the slower months or they will just be available! I know a lot of vendors + venues book a year (or more!) in advance, so by having your wedding in the winter you might be able to book that photographer/designer/venue you truly love without having to wait another year. Just a fun tip for those new brides out there. :) And speaking of winter weddings, I love this rustic/woodland themed winter wedding inspiration sent over from photographer Jenny Haas and Ashley Krogman Designs. It’s a perfect mix of whimsical + winter.

We decided to go with simple colors, such as silvers, creams, whites, and golds. Ashley found some old sheet music at a local thrift store, and sent it to me in the mail. I had bought a sheet music wreath at an antique store and decided to mimic the wreath in a smaller version for the chargers [to go under the plates] I felt like this look pulled everything together perfectly. Another one of my favorite ideas was the “snow ice cream” I often make snow ice cream out of freshly fallen snow with my two small children [they love it :)] and I had the idea to use it on the dessert table as a unique touch. Ashley emailed me when I told her of the idea, and said that in the early nineteen hundreds they used to put molasses on snow, so we put molasses in small jars off to the side of the snow, adding for more of a vintage feel.
