Snow Wedding Inspiration

Well, I don’t know about you but I just love winter weddings. There is just something so magical and intriguing about a wedding where the snow is falling, the fireplace is crackling, and the hot chocolate is being sipped. Speaking of snow, it obviously wouldn’t be a  winter  wedding without a sweet picture of you and your significant other in the snow! A sweet caressing photo in the snow will do but perhaps you want to be more fun and play in the snow. Check out that last photo in the set. Talk about a way cool and creative photo with the sled! I love that idea! Oh and make sure to get your bridesmaids in on the action too! Just remember to be quick, I would’t want you to freeze out there!

Wedding at the Four Seasons Koele Lodge Lanai, Hawaii

lanai hawaii weddings Wedding at the Four Seasons Koele Lodge Lanai, Hawaii

Kelly and Justin wed at one of my favorite places on earth – the Four Seasons Koele Lodge on Lanai.  The uber luxury yet oh-so cozy resort is nestled high above the ocean in the hills on the tiny Hawaiian island.  One of only two resorts on the island (the other is its sister property, the Four Seasons Manele Bay on the beach), this unique oasis gives you the best of Hawaii and the feeling of something very different (and special) at the same time.  Intimate libraries, wrap around decks, wild turkeys running around, an orchid greenhouse and world glass golf course are just some of what draw guests here.  And that was no different for these newlyweds who brought close friends and family to experience the magic of all of it.

The couple decided on a perfectly appropriate red motif with lush red roses and orchids throughout the event.

The ceremony took place in the Koele Lodge Music Room and Asian lanterns were strung from the chandelier to enhance the theme.

To kick off the festivities, the tradition of a conch horn was blown.

After the ceremony, guests were ushered into the lodge library for dinner where the deeps reds poured out – perfect for the holiday season wedding this was!

White accents contrasted the color and brought in a hint of the bride’s white dress.

Guests dined looking out over the lush grounds and pond while Christmas trees lined the inner walls.

It wouldn’t be a Christmas wedding without a few bride and groom photos in front of the trees.

Red Winter Weddings

After the red wedding in Italy we shared yesterday, we had to show you a bit more of the winter color inspiration we just love.  An electric red accent makes for a fun-tastic color in the snow, the city, or in a far off European country like Spain or Italy.  Today’s bright red wedding inspiration hopefully gets you in the holiday spirit and gives you a few great ideas for your winter destination wedding.

Christmas on the Beach Engagement Shoot

winter wedding engagement shoot Christmas on the Beach Engagement ShootIn the spirit of the holidays we couldn’t help but fall in love with this inspiration shoot captured by our talented friend Jessica Claire. This soon-to-be-wed couple got snuggled up in the cool California air on the beaches of Laguna to capture what would turn into a fantastic Christmas card (or so we hope) and a magical engagement shoot.

Designer and planner, Lindye Galloway wanted to create an elopement setting befitting of a California Christmas – mission accomplished!  “The ceremony had a simple elegance with a custom chandelier made out of ornaments suspended above the couple, embracing the ever-popular ombre style.”holiday engagement shoot Christmas on the Beach Engagement ShootFrom ceremony to “reception” and even a snuggle station in a cave, no detail was left undone.  How they managed to get a Christmas tree onto the beach without incident is pure holiday magic!  I wonder if they surprised each other with real gifts under that tree?christmas wedding photos Christmas on the Beach Engagement ShootWhat a great time it must have been to produce a shoot so festive!  Especially knowing the bride and groom are getting married next year and what a gift this will end up becoming for them!

But back to the decor – when frolicking in the sand when finished, the duo settled down at a dinner table built for two!beach winter weddings Christmas on the Beach Engagement ShootFor dessert, the couple delighted in a two tiered ruffle cake and two jumbo cupcakes tying in the theme of what winter in California is really like.
