Wedding Wheels, winter-style

Welcome to Wedding Wheels, winter-style.  This is a special edition exploring the cool & unusual modes of getaway transportation used by winter Brides & Grooms.  Naturally, I adore it when I spy a winter Bride donning a fur stole & traveling in a vintage taxi just like I did for my winter wedding.  (Seriously, that is the exact same cab from my wedding. I highly recommend Film Cars for tri-state area Brides!).  But with the ice & snow of winter offering lots of options, it's pretty cool to see winter wedding getaways that don't involve wheels at all!

After eloping on a gondola at the top of the mountain, this cool, brave & athletic couple spent their wedding day skiing the slopes:

You don't see this everyday: a winter Bride & Groom taking a spin on their ice skates!

Okay, okay- this winter couple may not have actually used the vintage snowshoes & sled but they still get major points:

A horse-drawn carriage ride through the snow on a winter wedding day just seems so dreamy & romantic:

Now if I could just find a winter Bride & Groom racing around on a snowmobile or riding a snowplow, my Wedding Wheels, winter-style collection would be complete!

{Modern Ballroom Wedding} Dani & Adam

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

What's not to love about a ballroom wedding with dramatic lighting, glowing candlelight & copious amounts of hydrangeas, roses & calla lilies?  There is everything to love about a ballroom wedding like that as you shall see!!  A Magic Moment shows us the pretty:

Dani & Adam met at students at University of Pittsburgh when Dani moved into Adam's apartment complex.  Fate had its way & they became a couple.  Life took them to Florida where they became husband & wife on September 22, 2012 at The Peabody in Orlando, Florida.  The ceremony space was sleek & modern with silver draping, white flowers & moody blue lighting.  The reception space was swanky & elegant with towering white centerpieces, glowing candlelight & more moody blue lighting. Although nothing shined brighter & happier than the beautiful Bride & handsome Groom!

My Favorite Moment: I adore the Bride & Groom taking a spin on a pedicab!

My Favorite Detail: Tall glass cylinders wrapped in rhinestones & filled with floating candles? LOVE!!

Congratulations, Dani & Adam!

winter wedding mash

Today's post is born of necessity.  I haven't had as much time to celebrate winter weddings as I'd like due to taking time off for surgery.  Although Spring doesn't technically start until March 20, as soon as March 1 hits, my mind shifts automatically to Spring.  Here I find myself with one little week of Winter left & tons of winter wedding images to share.  While I like to create posts that celebrate one beautiful image or one theme with multiple images, today's post is just a mish-mash of winter wedding images that I love.

A loose, organic bouquet in shades of pretty pink makes for an unexpected winter wedding bouquet:

Glowing candles wrapped in birch & nestled in evergreen & branches set the scene for a cozy winter wedding:

With a bit of sparkle on top & a bed of rustic pinecones below, the graphic pinecone cake is simply perfect for a winter wedding:

When the chill sets in, enjoy festive mugs of hot chocolate at a winter wedding:

Just a little but not too much!  It's what every Winter Bride, including me!, is thinking on her winter wedding day:

What do you love best about winter weddings?

the chill

Winter Brides have the unique challenge of finding something fashionable & beautiful to battle the chill of winter days.  To stay toasty warm, I'm a huge fan of Winter Brides wearing fur stoles or jackets on their wedding day.  Yesterday's Christmas Bride wore a lovely, white fur stole & I wore a rich brown vintage fur stole on my cold January wedding day:

I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Winter Brides rocking fur stoles or jackets.  Always.  But lately I've been noticing Winter Brides choosing other options for staying warm.  & I like it.  Let's take a peek, shall we?

I'm absolutely swooning over this cozy, fur-lined cardigan:

I'm digging the cool, edgy look of this camel leather jacket: 

Most Winter Brides choose fur stoles or jackets in shades of white or brown, occasionally black, so I adore this gorgeous fur jacket in the prettiest shade of lavender:

I think a happy, bright yellow cardigan is an awesome choice: 

If you must combat the deep chill of winter, then you might as well do it with style & grace.  I tip my hat to these Winter Brides.  Job well done, ladies!

{Festive DIY Christmas Wedding} Erica & Dan

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

As the winter wedding celebration continues, I am truly honored to bring you a winter wedding, holiday-style.  Think poinsettias, holly & candy canes!  Here to show us every festive delight is Michelle Zahn Photography:  

When Erica & Dan got engaged, there was no other choice for the Bride than a holiday wedding.  At last, she could combine her love for Dan & for Christmas by creating a festive, beautiful wedding.  They set the wedding date for December 15, 2012 in Westminster, Maryland.  The Bride chose her favorite Christmas things & began to incorporate them into her DIY holiday wedding.

The Bride & Groom got married in a traditional Lutheran ceremony at Grace Lutheran church.  The Bride made ceremony programs decorated with holly that complimented the church's beautiful Christmas decorations, including Christmas trees, garland & white lights.  She carried a full bouquet of red roses made holiday-style with red berries & greenery.  Near a towering Christmas tree, the Bride & Groom became husband & wife.

Much more holiday joy was to come at the reception at St. John's Portico.  Lovingly made by the Bride, the red poinsettia centerpieces brought the holiday-style to the reception.  The four-tier round wedding cake featured poinsettias cascading down its side & a glittery red monogram on top.  The favors were (what else?) candy canes displayed in red & green buckets.  In this festive fashion, the Bride & Groom celebrated their marriage!

My Favorite Moment:  The Groom's nephew walking down the aisle with the "Uncle Dan here comes your Erica!" sign.  Precious.

My Favorite Detail: I'm loving the bright red bridal bouquet with the holiday touches of berries &  

Congratulations, Erica & Dan!
