country elegance. styled winter bridals.

Winter is here which means, unfortunately, that wedding season has slowed to a halt (for me at least) until next year. I have learned this year that I love shooting weddings more than anything else and as soon I shot my last 2012 wedding in September I started dreaming of how I can keep doing what I love during the cold winter months. Enter Pinterest browsing. I scoured the internet for creative winter weddings/bridal sessions and, although I found a few ADORABLE ways to style your dress for your winter wedding formals, the majority of styling options seemed to be typical – white coat, white shawl, white hand muff, white, white, white. I know that if my wedding was in the winter that I definitely would’ve been looking for some inspiration that was a little different than those options. I thought of a few themed ideas and then handed those concepts over to my ridiculously talented stylist (and blogger), Lyndsey (Over My Styled Body). She spun life into my dream for this shoot and, combined with the most ridiculously awesome vendors, we were able to shoot four gorgeous concept looks.

If you’re a winter bride or know a winter bride feel free to pin or pass on these looks. Hopefully they’ll unleash some new creativity for you, too! I’m spreading out the 4 looks into 4 different blog posts so stay tuned for the rest…

Please also visit the websites and/or facebook pages of my vendors who helped me make this shoot happen. I couldn’t have done this without each and every one of them ❤
