The snow has melted and spring is in full swing, but I am still dreaming about this Bohemian Winter Styled shoot from only a few short months ago. WIth all of the rainfall Southern California was blessed with this year, we thought what a better excuse to drive up to Big Bear and play in the snow! Our team of creatives truly had a blast conceptualizing this Bohemian Winter Wedding Styled Shoot.
The ambiance of Pine Rose Weddings has a quaint and rustic charm that gives you the warm and fuzzies. You are in your own mountainous wonderland! It's gorgeous outdoor ceremony and reception area has a natural wood arch, and a tranquil view of a natural spring. You could not ask for a more beautiful mountain wedding venue!
Our Bride wore a Kite and Butterfly boho wedding gown provided by Mary Me Bridal, accessories from Young Hearts Designs, and her beautiful ring from Jewelry Exchange in Tustin. The dapper groom wore a charcoal Michael Kors jacket from Friar Tux Shop with a dark wash jean and chocolate brown shoes for a mountain casual vibe.
As for the design, we wanted to achieve that winter lodge feel, but with a bohemian twist in the snow! The ceremony space was adorned with lanterns, vintage brass candlesticks, vintage green glass bottles and natural elements sourced straight from the forest – evergreen, pinecones, logs, tree stumps, twigs, etc. The bride and groom stood underneath an oversized evergreen branch suspended with four burgundy dahlias for that pop of color. The floral arrangements created by Bottles & Blooms incorporated unique bohemian elements such as feathers, cotton, and blackberries to help carry out the vision along with blue thistle for that unique pop of blue! Silky multi-colored ribbons cascaded from the breathtaking and whimsy bridal bouquet that was an eclectic mix of greenery and blooms accented with feathers. The bride wore a lush flower crown that tied in the back with a silky forest green ribbon atop her lovely long locks designed by Design Visage.
The tabletop was designed by Events by Robin, which was inspired by layering colors and textures that started with a velvety gold hue linen from La Tavola Fine Linens. The next layer after the soft linen was a dark galvanized metal charger from Baker Party Rentals to provide a contrast, and then layered with vintage gold accented china from Sundrop Vintage. The frosting to this place setting was delicately wrapped burlap inspired napkins tied with a forest green velvet ribbon. But, the cherry on top was the intricately shaped shimmery gold feather escort card designed by Honeycrisp Design.
The romance in the winter crisp air was undeniable as the votive candles and lanterns twinkled with warmth while the couple snuggled on the marvelous emerald green velvet loveseat from Sundrop Vintage! Our cake was designed by Rooney Girl Bake Shop and also had a layering inspiration. The first layer had a pattern designed to mimic the delicate lace on the bride’s gown. The same forest green velvet ribbon wrapped the middle layer, ending with a very boho metallic gold painted top layer. The cake was accented with feathers, organic twigs, cotton and fresh florals! All of these elements combined created a rustic winter wonderland dream and we are so excited to share!
