Winter Wedding Inspiration
Updated: Mar 28
Mid-century modern and vintage details, but add a little rustic twist. This was the theme of our "Winter Your Way" styled shoot on Friday, Feb. 5.
The soft winter sun through the windows, the flickering glow of frost-colored candlesticks, and the earthy toned color palette.... despite the cold teeth that February winds can have, there was a warm and romantic atmosphere at Union Pine that we couldn't get enough of.
Our wonderful lead planner, Emily Donner, designed the space for this shoot to embrace true Northwest style and inspire couples who are looking to celebrate their love in the frosty months of winter.
The feel was moody and cozy: the same feeling you get when you're cozied up next to the fire with blankets and a hot drink.
The artisan pies from Pie Spot and whipped-cream-dolloped cocktails by the Swig Rig really complimented all the delicate details of this shoot: the elegant of the wedding gown bodice, full tux, and the soft florals.
We especially loved the tablescape.
"I’m obsessed with table culture and design. The colors came together so beautifully with those sienna linens, ivory chiffon, sliced pears, vintage glassware and modern-styled seating," Emily said.
Union Pine's main venue is both modern and rustic, with the dark floors that contrast with the white walls. The sunlight that gently flows in through the wall of windows is bright yet soft, creating the perfect lighting to capture the day you say, "I Do."
Katy Weaver Photography captured Emily's design beautifully. We love a golden, summer wedding, but winter is truly a special time of the year to tie the knot. You and your partner can always cozy up every year after and feel that same warmth you did years ago.
