Merry Christmas Wedding Inspiration and Holiday Celebration | by Brandon Werth Photography |  www.smittenmagazine.com

We’ve been waiting for the perfect time to share this charming shoot, and Christmas Eve is it!  Here’s how designer, Jennifer and Janea of Rosetree Weddings & Events came up with and executed her woodland preppy inspiration:

We are thrilled to share with you this woodland wedding inspiration shoot. As designers and planners, we wanted to create a styled shoot that was filled with layers, textures and what we love most about Minnesota……the beauty in nature. We were inspired by many years of adoring Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger fall catalogs.

The Hansen Tree Farm seemed to be the perfect setting surrounded by all the different evergreens. The fragrant smell of pine trees filled the air. The sweetheart table adorned with red toile plates atop silver beaded chargers and deep red wine glasses greet our bride and groom. Centered on the table, a large iron candelabra and lush swag creates an enchanting feel in the thick forest. Rich textures of velvet pair perfectly with the vibrant colors of the patterned quilt for the perfect place to steal away a few moments to dream of the future.  

The bride looked smashing in a high low dress and red velvet blazer. The groom’s chic style emulated multiple layers that we so adore with his plaid button down shirt, burlap tie, sweater vest with blazer, and chic Aztec patterned socks.  

Homemade pastries surrounded the delectable naked red velvet cake. Garnished with pomegranates, grapes, berries and greenery the multicolored yarn swag behind brought this cake to life. “Let Love Grow” tied in perfectly with the tree farm venue with miniature trees were given as goodies. Nature grows with love as does our marriages and it only takes a little nurturing each day.

Check back tomorrow for the adorable kids’ table
