If you're looking for winter wedding ideas look no further! Bethany Hway of b*spoke, Dena Swenson and Emily Steffen of Emily Steffen Photography collaborated for this charming vintage Valentine's photo shoot that does not disappoint! I love their interpretation of the bride's bouquet, especially since flowers aren't too keen on winter weather and the paper products are simply perfect for this occasion. I could go on and on but here is what the photographer, Emily Steffen, had to say about the photo shoot via Style Me Pretty...
We took our inspiration from the rustic barns that narrate the snowy Wisconsin country-side and combined it with the romantic event of Valentines day. With snowy trees, a romantic setting and a few vintage details…..this wedding would be described as vintage country romance.
Our color palette was a play off of the traditional colors seen around Valentine’s Day with a twist towards the muted and vintage. We used soft dusty rose, cream, and camel colors and combined it with a brighter red and teal to bring in a punch. The rustic barn was a perfect backdrop of browns and worn textures against these colors in the snowy WI setting.
Our tablescape was styled on an old barn-door that has been painted white and weathered for texture; a high-impact look for a very low price tag for the budget-friendly bride. We brought in elegance with the china and paired it with the vintage antique store find of the pink cups and saucers. Mason jars added interest to the sea of cream colored candles floating down the center of the table with a camel hued linen table runner. My favorite element on the table was the knitted hearts at each place setting that also served as a potpourri drawer freshener for each guest to take home. Our designer, Dena, styled each place setting with mini wine bottles highlighting the custom wine label for the bride and groom.
And a round of applause to all these vendors for their creative input...
