{Little Winter Bride}: Shades of Gray + White

Shades of Gray + White

Imagine a landscape blanketed in snow, an old covered bridge and a wedding full of all kinds of beautiful winter pretties. When it comes to Winter weddings, there's nothing more romantic than a snowy day. I'm loving how cozy this feels. Mittens, milk glass and marshmallows, oh my! For me, a Winter wedding has a certain magical feeling to it that is not easily duplicated in any other season... Perhaps that's because for me Winter is one of the most magical times of the year. Families getting together, celebrations, toasting the new year. So why not embrace the season and use it for inspiration?

I don't know about you, but I'm absolutely in love with this bride. Her dress and it's ornate lace detailing, the ruffles, her bangs. She's stunning and her look is what I would call 'classic beauty.' And what's not to love about this romantic moment captured on a snowy covered bridge? These are the things that Winter weddings are made of. So tell me, do you like the idea of a snowy wedding day?

Yes-completely taken with this winter palette. I can hardly get enough of this Audrey Hepburn-esque bride. So lovely. And the image of the mittens & acorn is precious.

As a winter Bride, I was happy to have snow on the ground for some of our photos but I wished & hoped there would be no snow falling from the sky that might cause travel problems for our guests! My wish was granted, phew.


adore this palette, chrissy!

I can believe that I have seen my ideal wedding gown. That is how I really want my wedding dress to be. Sexy but still has that sensitivity of my religion. Thanks for showing this.

Really lovely. Could include some icing and sugar dressing for your wedding catering.


She is Penélope Cruz's sister. The dress is from Aire Barcelona by Rosa Clará, and she was the face of the 2011 campaign.
