Sara Reynolds Events designed this shoot as Christmas wedding inspiration for winter brides that want a little extra holiday cheer for their wedding. She wanted to showcase the theme of “All I want for Christmas is You”; by imagining a bride and groom that just said “I do” and now want to open their cozy home up to all their friends and family for their first Christmas together. Just as the song says “I don’t care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree” this couple cares more about being together with everyone for Christmas. Thinking about the wedding as the beginning of a marriage, we envisioned this couple coming home to a living room set in classic Christmas fashion; complete with a decorated tree, fluffy pillows, and a warm faux throw.
A lush red and deep green color scheme was gorgeous against the rustic but elegant backdrop that the Mt. Washington Mill Dye house provided. The tablescape, complete with the quintessential plaid, allowed for a gorgeous but cozy place for the guests to dine with the new Mr. and Mrs. We also dressed the sweetheart chairs with boxwood wreaths as homage to the wreath on your door at home.
This winter bride, is elegant and romantic and wants her guests to feel comfortable and cozy. While winter can often feel dark and cold, this was an inspiration for the bride that wants to portray the romance and festiveness of the season. I think every bride on their wedding day wakes up feeling a little bit like it is Christmas morning, and that’s the excitement and endearment we wanted to display.
