Typically when one thinks of a wedding you picture; sunshine, warm weather and a long light filled evening. There are a great many couples, however, that picture their dream day taking place in the snow. Winter is a beautiful though often overlooked wedding season. The coziness of a fire crackling in the hearth during your ceremony, dreamy pictures of the happy couple walking in the snow…it’s pretty romantic. The tricky part of planning a winter wedding is how to bring in colors that aren’t too, well, holiday. There are so many beautiful winter flowers to use to create a color story that will add visual interest and texture to bouquets and on the tables. Some of my favorite flowers for winter celebrations are Anemones, Cotton, Lilies, Eucalyptus and Ranuncluses. These flowers are all beautiful as stand alone flowers but combined have a soft dreamy quality that encapsulates a winter wedding. Flowers are just such a beautiful way to help create the day of your dreams and winter flowers are no exception!

Oh my how beautiful is this English farm?! The sunlight, the brick barn, the fields…I’d happily grab a pair of Wellies and tend to the animals if it meant I got to spend my days on this lovely farm! Happy Friday dreaming friends!

I am in love with the new trend of flower necklaces! They are beautiful, romantic and dare I say practical? Finding the perfect accessories for your bridesmaids, on top of all of the details you have to arrange for yourself as the bride…well flower necklaces just make sense. They are a unique way of keeping everything in the same color story, accessorizing your wedding party and keep with the overall feel of the day while doing something just a little different! There are so many ways to personalize flower necklaces from each bridesmaid wearing smaller versions of your bouquet, to each one wearing a different necklace made from one of the flowers in your bouquet (maid of honor’s is made from the same Peonies, your new sister in law’s is made from the Roses…) There really is no wrong way to incorporate this lovely new trend!
