Winter Wedding

Inspiration: Chrysolite by Michael and Carina Photography

Wintery pastel perfection. Our Chrysolite gown glistens in this beautiful inspiration shoot set at The Retreat at Cool Spring in Bluemont, VA.   

Swathed in sequins and dripping with subtle sparkle, the Chrysolite is a favorite around here and with good reason!  Trickling embellishment?  Check!  Sparkle that's not tacky or overdone?  Check! A dramatic train and more detail the closer you look?  Check check check!

Inspiration: Azurite by Julie Paisley Photography

Despite the sunshine and green grass, this inspiration shoot has us thinking of winter weddings. Maybe it's the nip in the air or maybe it's the fact that the holiday season is nearly upon us, but we can envision all of these details surrounded by snow. There is a frosty feel to the quartz crystals, rock candy, and shimmering invitations. The draped white fabric is cool against the warm candlelight. Minty green and sage foliage provide the perfect alternative to the typical emerald green and red florals of the season. If we had a winter wedding to design, we would follow in the inspired tracks of this talented team.
