California Winter Wedding

Whenever we see snow in wedding pictures, it’s almost as though it adds a mystical quality to the wedding itself, and this wedding sent over by Jennifer Eileen is absolutely no exception. Brett and Brandon married in the mountains of California during a particularly snowy January, and we have to say the weather meshed pretty perfectly with their wedding aesthetic. Don’t miss their mason jar snow globes or the cold-weather animal table numbers!

From the photographer, Jennifer: My all time favorite thing about photographing weddings is when I click so well with a client that a friendship is created. That is exactly what happened with Brett & Brandon. Brett is uber cute, uber talented, and uber fun. Her creativity knows no bounds. Paired with her now sister-in-law, this duo can pull off the most fantastic moments. Brett built her wedding off of the song “January Wedding” by Avett Brothers. Therefore Brett and Brandon were wed in the mountains, in January, on the first major snow of the season. It was utterly beautiful.

Their wedding is chock full of DIY details! I loved their chalkboard escort table, the homemade mason jar snow globes, the canned peaches which were the favors, the hand drawn table numbers, the flowers that Brett (the bride) did were just so stunning, and the dessert table was not only beautiful but delicious! Also, I have to mention, the clips in Brett’s hair, her mom’s hair, and her sister’s hair were all made by Inglenook from Brett’s mom’s wedding dress. Such a lovely touch.
