Whether you’re dreaming of a white Christmas wedding day next year, or you simply want ideas for your festive dinner table next week, this seasonal shoot is set to inspire.

The work of Sacramento-based Samantha Kirk Photography, this shoot harnesses traditional festive tones, chic modern tablescaping, and a few vintage adornments, to offer a plethora of ideas for winter wedding styling.

Despite featuring some of the finest vendors in Sacramento and the Bay Area, and being captured on The Lawley Ranch, in Northern California, this shoot still has a crisp winter feel, that would work just as beautifully for West Coast sunshine or East Coast snow.

From a tempting dessert table (Samantha is a big fan of desserts!) to beautiful table dressing, and a bride with a hairband we’re absolutely adding to our Christmas wishlist – this shoot is a chic look at how to create a Christmas theme, with serious style.

From The Photographer

This time, for this shoot I got such a great deal of vendors together from the Sacramento area and even from the Bay Area, for us to all work together for the first time.

We were able to build such great friendships and all came together bringing each one’s creativity to this shoot.

So elegant. Christmas styling can look really OTT, but this is just right! I just adore the florals, and that long sleeved wedding dress is just divine for a winter wedding.

Thanks so much to Samantha Kirk Photography, and her talented team of vendors for sharing this shoot.
