Holiday Wedding Inspiration

December 18, 2019

The holidays can be a hectic time of year – but they can also be the perfect time to get married! Family already in town? The excitement that surrounds everyone throughout the month. The sparkle! For this holiday wedding inspiration I had the opportunity to work with Natalie Choi and Hawthorn Floral Studio. I love that these two focused more on burgundy than a traditional red color palette.

The wedding invitation from Isidore Augustine was divine. The letterpress was so thick and elegant – and the subtle floral print was the icing on the cake. I loved incorporating the Erstwhile diamond ring into the flatlays along with the loose blooms from Hawthorn Floral Studio.

Our bride wore an incredible Julie Vino Bridal wedding dress with sheer sleeves and a cutout back. The dress was covered in delicate sequins and beading. The layered skirt provided depth and movement without being too heavy. It was just the right amount of sparkle for a holiday wedding! The bride’s bolder berry lip was another fun accent to add to the holiday cheer!

Natalie opted to design a monochromatic table for the reception – with the exception of the florals. The Ritz La Tavola linen added texture and almost made it feel as though a cozy blanket was wrapped around the table. Velum menus sat atop Heath plates. Modern and minimal floral arrangements were placed down the center of the table.

Working with this team to create this holiday wedding editorial was a great way to kick off the season! Thank you to everyone that helped!
