a vibrant winter wedding shoot

as the days of winter are winding down, i figured i didn't have much more time to blog this little shoot (which actually took place january of 2010!!)...i am headed to big bear tomorrow where the snow is about 3 feet deep right now so i thought the timing of this post was perfect...

last year, jesi hack and jessica claire wanted to collab on a fun, vibrant shoot in the snow...something bright and playful to perk you up on a bleak winter day...so jesi and i decided on kelly green, yellow, turquoise and a touch of fuschia...




we painted two of my chairs yellow and covered the seats with white cableknit sweater material, then added a turquoise pillow for another pop of color...


for the bouquet i used black/white anemones, fuschia peonies and yellow craspedia...



jesi styled the bride with that beautiful fuschia scarf and some turquoise knit boots!







i wrapped all the vases in some old turquoise and kelly green cableknit sweaters i found at a thrift store...just cut the sleeves off and they slide right on! we also found that rad deer head candleholder at the thrift store and jesi loved it so much she still has it sitting on a shelf in her own home...




i adored all the playful paper goods that jane created...how cute is this little guy jumping in the air?







the arrangements were made up of gardenia foliage, black/white anemones, navy privet berries, gray eucalyptus pods and some cool yellow felt balls that jesi made...





melody's cake was stunning - i loved, loved, loved that unique and feminine shape!



for some added texture, i used a frayed white cableknit sweater sleeve to wrap my bouquet stems...






thanks to everyone who helped make this shoot so amaze:

jessica claire for the bee-yoo-tee-ful photos
jesi haack for her design savvy - girl's got skills
jane from olive hue paper for the adorable printed materials
melody from sweet and saucy shop for the gorgeous cake

This is just stunning. I love the use of the cable knit. And that deer candleholder? I'm dying right now. Thank you so much for this wonderful inspiration. I wish I was getting married again.

I hope you don't mind but I wanted to share this with my readers today! You're amazing!
