Winter is my favorite season. I love it all—the boots, hot beverages, mittens, puffy coats, hats, evergreens and twinkle lights and yes, even snow. So when The Wedding Corner gals invited me to be a part of their latest shoot, Winters White Styled Shoot, I was estatic! Greenery, winter whites and a fluffy white dog? Yes, yes, and YES!
After the group met and planned out the style and aesthetic of the shoot, I got busy planning out the floral and greenery pieces. One of my favorite things about weddings is creating a palette of unique and textural florals and greens. I often find inspiration for colors and shapes in nature, and for this bouquet, I chose to focus on using primarly white flowers and adding texture and shape with various greens. The flowers I selected were: hellebore, ranunculus, peonies, larkspur, astilbe and spray roses. When choosing florals, I like to select various sizes and shapes. The ranunculus flowers add a nice whimsical touch while the hellebores add a delicate beauty. I also incorporated a mix of evergeens including fir and pine to add a bit of winter charm to the bouquet.
For the reception table, I chose to do a lush mixed-evergreen garland. I absolutely love making garland, and made sure to choose a combination that felt more wintery than holiday. I combined white pine, silver fir, seeded eucalyptus, variegated italian pitt, noble fir and incense cedar, which resulted in a rich tonal palette of green hues and tons of texture.
When I heard that Bubbles, Blue Bell Farm's great peranese dog, was going to be in the shoot, I knew I had to make a special evergreen collar just for her! It may just be my favorite part of the whole design!
I just adore each of the vendors that made this shoot possible! If you are busy planning your big day, be sure to check out these amazing vendors! They are all so talented and wonderful to work with.
