About this shoot: “In the spirit of this beautiful season, swoon over this wintery wedding shoot with old world glam and even a rustic twist. So I will admit to daydreaming of every wedding shoot we have the opportunity to do, but this wintery wedding display at a farm north of Toronto holds a special spot in my heart! The remains of an old barn, is the perfect backdrop for a fabulous wintery display loaded with colour! Since I am from the beautiful and rugged northern Ontario, where winter means snow covered roads from Dec til at least March, its easy to see why this wedding shoot is reflective of who I am and what I love. Think beyond typical winter wedding decor with white branches and hanging snowflakes. Let the richness of red berries and snow covered cherries inspire you and remind you of the beauty of the season! A Faux fur shade and artistic arrangement of orchids, roses, berries and even purple kale create a glamorous centerpiece.” ~Rachel, Rachel A. Clingen Wedding Design
Meghan and Kevin had a “destination” wedding at Clifty Falls State Park in Madison, Indiana. Meghan shared her mother’s wedding anniversary date, and dedicated her bouquet to her mother. The wedding planner made centerpieces out of empty frames and various glass and it was beautiful. The broach and bracelets were heirlooms. The ceremony overlooked the Clifty Falls state park. Vintage, rustic and modern in one.
About this wedding: “The bride was inspired by her husband Trae, when it came to designing the overall look of the wedding. Trae is from the Bahamas, so they incorporated the islands into the wedding – an Island Chic theme, using colors from the sea (teal for the water of the Bahamas, red for coral, white for sand). A coral motif was incorporated throughout the invitations, centerpieces, programs, and escort cards, and starfish imagery was used in table name signage, monogram, Mr. and Mrs. seating signage, and programs. Save the dates, programs, menus, escort cards (and escort card table), table cards, monogram, bride and groom seating signage, door initials, red pomander balls (aisle decor), specialty drink names and signage, flagged drink stir sticks, photo booth backdrop, Tiffany box chocolate favors, and monogram favor hangtags were all elements designed and created by Events Luxe in the Design Studio.”
