A winter wonderland meets the North Texas woodlands in this snow and ice wedding inspiration shoot from Cactus and Coast Photography. Cerulean hues with whites and icy light blues set the tone for this wintry scene, complete with falling “snow,” a cozy lounge area by Gold Dust Event Co. and even a hot chocolate bar, courtesy of HD Liquid Catering, pairing perfectly with a decadent cake from Butterfly Cakery. Calligraphy by Love Letters Handmade adorns signage and place cards atop settings by Top Tier Event Rentals & Staffing, inviting guests in for an intimate gathering. The vintage car is as cool as ice and the perfect quirky getaway car for a trendsetting couple. The temps may be cold, but this stylish boho scene warms us right up to the idea of a cozy winter wedding with snow and ice all around. Cheers!

If you’re the type to go for bold tones over delicate pastels, you’ll absolutely love this wedding inspiration full of bright, blooming colors, dreamed up by Katie Frost Weddings! Statement-making florals by Billie Ball & Co. anchored this beautiful styled shoot hosted by Flying V Ranch, and the fuchsia tones in the bouquets made their way into the stationery by Brown Fox Creative and the velvet settee from Coral Lane Rentals. Pops of bright orange complemented the hot pink hues, from Posh Couture Rentals’s tablescape details to cocktails from HD Liquid Catering, and even the bridesmaids’ dresses, reminding us that embracing color is nothing to shy away from! The bride stunned in her contemporary-style cutout dress from Stanley Korshak Bridal and sparkling jewelry by The True Gem. From the bridal bouquet to the tabletop, this saturated soirée featured a full spectrum of blooming colors and brought them all together beautifully. Cheers!

From the florist: “We really wanted to break away from all of the pastels and blush tones we’ve been seeing so much of lately, and embrace the full color spectrum. We went for a bright and fun color palette, set against the venue’s white interior and punctuated by Coral Lane’s bold pieces – it made for a truly eye-catching a fresh wedding shoot!”
