{Chilly Winter Day}: A Palette of Red, Black, Latte, Camel + White

{Red, Black, Latte, Camel+ White}

Well, hello there darlings! And how are you all doing on this fine, Friday morning? I'm not sure how the weather is where you are, but here in the great state of Georgia, it's sort of uncomfortably hot. So today I thought, why not give everyone a little something that will help cool you off a bit? Some inspiration to beat the heat, perhaps? Plus, I could not resist helping out a bride in distress! Hannah recently wrote to me and told me all about her upcoming Winter wedding. She said that since her wedding day was so close to Christmas, she wanted to incorporate a classic shade of red as well as some fun winter ideas, but didn't know where to start. So off to the drawing board I went, and this is the palette I made for Hannah {continued...}

Details We Love
Little Red Barn + Newlyweds in the Snow!
When it comes to weddings, I'm admittedly obsessed with Winter weddings. I guess it comes from the fact that I tend to conjure up all these romantic associations with it being chilly outside. I often think about cozy winter nights at home and how my hubby always makes us a nice roaring fire while we sip hot cocoa and enjoy each others company. What can I say? I'm a romantic at heart! One idea I'm loving here is the firewood escort card display. How creative is that? Oh, and who could resist a covered bridge amidst the snow? 

Anyone out there planning a Winter wedding? Or perhaps you're looking forward to the holidays already and are too afraid to admit it? Don't worry you're not alone, I'm definitely ready for cooler months + all that comes with them! Try to stay cool, lovelies. PS. Today you can find me on Lovely Little Details 'Bloggers Unveiled' series! I'm sharing some personal tidbits including how I got my start in the wedding industry!

I had a winter wedding (February 25) and loved it - I am especially thankful for it now that we are in the middle of this horrible heatwave...I pity anyone planning an outdoor wedding for tomorrow.

Nice post !!Having your wedding in the winter is certainly an interesting idea. Winter weddings are not something for everybody.

Paper Moss July 22, 2011

This is fabulous!! I'm on the same page- for some reason I've been so excited for Christmas for the last 2 weeks- but the thought of another New England winter makes me want to cry!

Unknown July 22, 2011

I'm definately ready for some cooler weather too! Fall would be nice right now. I love your winter palette! I was a winter bride...three days for christmas to be exact. What broke my heart was it didn't snow! That was one of the things I thought would be so have wedding pictures done in the snow -and it turned out to be even fairly "warm" considering the time of year! Told my husband we'd just have to get married all over again! :-)

Oh! MY! I L-O-V-E this. Thanks for this Winter inspiration! I'm getting married in the Winter and I could not ask for better inspiration. So woodsy feeling.


Erin July 22, 2011

Oh snow. I would like to jump in it right now. Agreed about how romantic it can be when it's chilly outside! :)

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} July 22, 2011

I'm with you...fall and winter (especially fall) are definitely more my preference...Red is always a favorite! And don't even get me started on the Phoenix weather )c: I seriously can't wait for cooler temps!

You know what? I'm doing a shoot this weekend for an editorial on winter brides. We're showcasing furs, capes, muffs--everything winteresque. So nice to see you posting about winter in the midst of summer. I can't wait to post my chilly weather bride bit . . .

brit July 22, 2011

This palette pretty much gets me all ready for Fall and Winter.

J.Crabbit July 22, 2011

Thanks for the "cool" post, it is smoldering here in Maine as well... good old east coast. we went to a winter wedding of a friend, and it was awesome, playing off the cold works great, and yes the inevitable cuddling that the cold promotes, it pretty great too.

A Crimson Kiss July 22, 2011

Love this gorgeous post-I've been moderately obsessed with Christmas lately, and I so needed someone else to get into the holidays, too!

Emily {Isnt That Charming} July 22, 2011

I love this palette! Perfect for fall/winter. Have a great weekend!

Unknown July 22, 2011

Rhiannon Bosse July 22, 2011

Immediately I feel so refreshed, surprisingly :) Such a gorgeous palette! Happy Weekend Chrissy!


There are so many summer weddings, it seems like winter weddings get overlooked. There is something so cozy about getting married in a winter wonderland... especially if there is a covered bridge involved! I'm now happily following. xo

I love the warm colors of a winter wedding as well. Hope you had a lovely weekend with your family and that your son's recent birthday party was fun!

We thought about doing a winter wedding, but the timing wasn't right for us. I actually wanted it on Halloween, but Mr. A didn't want to associate ghosts, goblins, witches, and death with our marriage ... I guess that's fair. I love the concept of getting married in the snow, though. It's so romantic.
