I've so been looking forward to sharing this gorgeous winter wedding inspiration shoot with you all.
Stylist and vintage rental queen, Elizabeth Ulrich of Stockroom Vintage, created a magical winter scene in a snow-dappled forest complete with a rustic, lace covered sweetheart table set with gilded vintage plates for two and the loveliest ‘let love grow' sapling favours.
Prepare yourselves folks, this shoot is just bursting with inspiring, whimsical and rustic wedding ideas!
There's a herb infused tea bar, dreamy florals by Brocade Designs, a lavender topped wedding cake, a stunning bride draped in fur and a dapper, tattooed groom plus beyond beautiful photos by Jenny Cruger Photography.
Who knew snow and lavender could make such a pretty combination?!
From Elizabeth of Stockroom Vintage:
Our session fell on the final snowfall of the season, and the shoot itself was a nod to that moment when winter is on the cusp of turning to spring. We created a look that was organic and a bit untamed, one that incorporated the creams and gray of winter with bright pops of lavender, the first signs of spring. We wanted every element of the design to feel as effortlessly free-spirited and natural as our bride, so we incorporated herbs and lots of worn wood.
Our tea bar featured lavender green tea and rosemary-infused iced tea, and the highlight of our rustic sweetheart table was the wood table runner and the hand-lettered “Mr. and Mrs.” chair signs, all of which were made from a reclaimed wood from a toppled barn.
The biggest element in our shoot was the forest itself. The Pine Halls forest was planted by hand by a family who has lived on the land for generations. The idea to create the DIY pine tree guest favors was born out of that story, a sweet reminder to “Let Love Grow.”
Thanks to Elizabeth, Jenny and the team for sharing this truly beautiful shoot with us today – I hope you're feeling inspired! (I sure am!)
I've got the lavender now all I need is the snow!
Are any of you having a rustic winter wedding or a wedding in a forest? We'd love to hear from you!
