Winter’s wedding palette can be many things: rosy and rich, flecked with the seasonal holiday colors and textures, or composed and serene, as peaceful as a walk through the snowy woods. It’s the latter look we’re featuring today, via a breathtaking styled shoot that reflects just how gorgeous a winter wedding can be.

With a little help from our Classic White Luxury Mix, you can fill your wedding with florals that provide layers of texture (think white roses, ranunculus, drifts of hydrangea–you get the picture). Cedar and ilex berries are the perfect counterpoint to the softness of these flowers, and greens like silver dollar eucalyptus and evergreen are always a fetching way to round out the effect. Except, of course, when they are the main event.
Here, boughs of eucalyptus and other greens cascade over the backs of bridal seating, just a few buds tucked in for interest. A dusting of snow on the ground makes a great ceremony runner.
The bouquet is an enchanting mix of ranunculus, berries, evergreen and more, uniting the woodsy backdrop with the delicate lace of the wedding gown. This luxe mix of flowers can be both glamorous (note the fur stole) and elemental, as if the bride gathered up this bundle on a romantic walk outdoors.
Earthy touches on a reception table continue the scene indoors, lit by warm candles and accented with gold plating and ornate candelabra. A trail of greens and flowers displayed naturally in the middle of the table allows guests to see each other and doesn’t compete with the fragrance of the meal. Simple is best, in this case, but the effect is no less a statement.
