The Inspiration Behind The Shoot from Photographer Samantha James:
With temperatures that can be downright frigid, planning a wedding during the Winter in Michigan is not for the faint of heart. Winter here, however, can be beautiful and it was the simple loveliness of the season that inspired this shoot.We wanted to create a romantic, winter wedding setting to inspire couples to think outside of the summer months when planning their wedding. With a monochromatic color palette of white and silver, we brought the outdoors inside. Adding textures like the white confetti linens and sparkling white sequin table covering really captured the feel of snow and elements like the clear glass vases, acrylic escort cards, and ghost chairs were our ice contributions. Lots of candles, soft white roses, hydrangeas, and a stunning lace and tulle gown definitely enhanced the romantic feel that we hoped to achieve.
