California Winter Wedding

Rustic Weddings

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.

    First and foremost, THANK YOU for featuring Brett & Brandon’s wedding!!! It’s so much fun to see the images once again on such a fantastic wedding blog. :)

    Rebecca, the animal table numbers were designed and hand drawn by Brett’s sister-in-law Lauren. You can contact her through her Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/InglenookAccessories

    This is beautiful!! Could you please tell me where the invitations and programs are from (or if they made them on their own)? They are beautiful and are exactly what my sister would love. Thanks!

    Beautiful wedding! Where are the bridesmaid dresses from?

    Wow! I love the colour scheme – the lilac, grey and white go so well together to make this a beautiful winter wedding. Amazing to have snow too, but I imagine it would have been freezing if it weren’t for those lovely fur collars. Above all, I think the woodland creatures drawn onto the table setting numbers is such a unique touch. A beautiful wedding!

    Beautiful setting for a wedding, the details are amazing.

    Where are the fur stoles from?

    The wedding looks perfect…

    I was going to ask the same question as Katie. I love the brides fur stole…where can I get one from?

  13. Jessica

    May I ask where the wedding took place? I would love to have a winter wedding, but it’s hard to find a reception location.

    Hello! What color are those dresses and are they from Tulle and Chantilly?
