If you love emerald green and cozy winter vibes, you’re in luck. Charlottesville wedding team Amy Nicole Photography, Alana Futcher of Chancey Charm and Photosynthesis Floral Design and more got together to dream up of an editorial filled with rich + deep hues made of winter wedding dreams. We will start off with this gorgeous antique engagement ring:
From the event coordinator, Alana Futcher of Chancey Charm: Winter can often be full of winter whites or brides, so the main focus of this inspiration shoot was to prove that the use of vibrant colors for a winter wedding can be gorgeous and refreshing. With Early Mountain Vineyards providing a blank, yet warm slate, the deep burgundy and emerald palette was sure to pop. Rather than incorporating pure white florals in the centerpiece and bouquet, Photosynthesis pulled blush florals to tone down the burgundy hues and greenery. Avoiding the typical choices, the tablescape menus focused on the different assortment of florals that appeared in the centerpiece. The velvet runner deepened the palette and was balanced out through the green tone of the Paisley and Jade rug underneath the table.
The sparkle on the cake by Commonwealth Cake Company, mixed with the mulled wine, provided just a subtle hint of winter charm. The emerald ring is a treasure the bride will keep forever to remember her winter wedding, along with the vows and bride and groom name written in calligraphy by Jodi Macfarlan on the candles. The classic, yet modern twist on your winter bride was shown through the lace detail and horsehair trim on the Monique Lhuillier gown provided by The Bride Room. The classic red lip courtesy of Anna Breeding, emphasized the elegance portrayed by the bride. Paired with stunning pieces from the Kendra Scott Bridal Collection, the bride had the perfect balance of classic and modern! We also did a mulled wine vignette (with custom wine labels!) since the venue is a gorgeous winery and it’s a perfect winter drink.
