Winter is hopefully coming to a close in DC [man it’s WINDY today] with Snowquestor a bust & behind us, and Cherry Blossoms on the horizon.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t still use the season for some beautiful wedding inspiration, especially since there’s a good amount of readers that could be currently planning a winter wedding! So for this afternoon, I give you a beautiful styled shoot between Eight Tree Street (florals & styling) and Teresa Wood Photography. The team used a royal purple, cranberry pink, and grass green color palette and a bird motif. I also loved the addition of wood and pine cones to the details. Check it out!

Eight Tree Street shares the inspiration behind the shoot:

One of my brides came late December for a backyard winter wedding at her parents home, even though it is cold, I love the idea.

I worked with wedding vendors to put together a shoot representative of what we see outdoors in the winter. I wanted a color palette different  from most winter wedding shoots, so you’ll find a richer and darker palette of purples, copper browns and greens, with touches of white and blue.  Twigs, little birds (we have a ton in our backyard) and other winter finds are incorporated.


On the other vendors they worked with:

I picked these vendors because many include handmade details (see hand beaded shawl by Sun*Kissed Designs, handcrafted soaps by P.S. I love Soap Co, stationery with loving stamp designs)  in their work, and  are very caring of their brides.
