Cake: Once Upon a Cake Co. (For the record: I love this cake. So much.)
If you’re less organic/woodsy and more elegant, you will want to catch this beautifully styled Elegant Holiday Wedding Inspiration featured on Style Me Pretty. I fell hard for the florals in this shoot, especially the backdrop! I would definitely be willing to brave the cold to get married beneath that bridal arch. I’m also a total sucker for the bridal style in this shoot. Her dress and hair are simple but timeless and elegant, which makes the bridal inspiration complete angelic and feminine beauty. Then pair it with the muted tones and you can see why this was such an inspiration to me! Be sure to check out the entire shoot and all the vendors here.
After living in Germany for 18 months as a representative for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, nothing makes me more homesick for Europe than Christmastime. Christmas in Germany is magical and when that first snow falls each year, the Fernweh (that's German for the opposite of homesickness – longing for a place that is far away) grips my heart and leaves me missing my beautiful second home, language, and family and all of the traditions and memories we created during the two Christmases I lived there. So, imagine my glee and giddiness when I stumbled onto this Swedish-inpsired Styled Christmas Wedding on Green Wedding Shoes!
The designer, Heather with Amorology, celebrated the Swedish holiday Santa Lucia Day in her own home and brought in so many personal, culturally authentic touches to this shoot. From the perfect Swedish-inspired textiles, to the dala horses thoughout, this shoot had me reminiscing about all the magic of Christmas in Europe: Christmas markets, meter-long bratwurst, hand-carved nutcrackers and rauchermaenner, and amazing Christmas cookies (you haven’t seen Christmas cookies until you’ve been in Germany during Christmas!). If you love all things Europe like I do, then this shoot and all the talented vendors can't be missed.
And is it just me or do these little boutonnieres totally spell 'JOY'?!?! Maybe it's all in my head, but it makes me happy, so it must be there...and now that I've said something I know you're going to notice it too, because that's just how that works and you'll never be able to un-see it. You're welcome :)
Wishing all of you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a season full of love, joy, and peace in our Lord and Savior!
