Winter Wedding Inspiration

Winter is wildly underrated. Its common view of being dreary, cold, and dead does not exemplify what winter really is. No season can match its quiet, pure, raw beauty and this styled December shoot captures winter like the queen she is. Seriously, if winter had a queen then she would want this styled shoot to be her wedding. A bride draped in white lace elegantly sitting upon her throne amongst pines, clean air, and winter sunshine is an idyllic setting.

Can we talk about how winter possesses the best color palette and culinary treats as well? This styled wedding has a selection of not only delicious but also visually pleasing desserts chosen for its vibrant colors, flavors, and textures that reflect a winter aesthetic artfully crafted by Kadi of Kadi Bakes. From a platter of golden cream puffs to velvet rouge finger foods sprinkled in sugar, the list of winter treats cannot get more enticing.

Below is the list of treats that will convince you to have a winter wedding because who can resist cream cheese buttercream, wild berries, vanilla and orange, and nutmeg? Let’s be honest, nothing can touch winter’s flavor.

The beauty of a winter wedding is the fantastic fusion of luxurious décor and raw nature.

Golden chandeliers, beaded and laced dresses, and diamonds dripping from intricate cake stands blend with red rose bouquets flowing with greenery, pine leaves and wood, wild berries, and the great outdoors.

This styled wedding is fit for a nature goddess with rich taste. She loves to breathe in that fresh winter air scented with mountain and pine. Nothing can compare to winter’s beauty other than the bride fit for it.
