Icy Winter Blues: A Styled Bridal Session

January 28, 2016
An icy blue winter palette with the loveliest tulle dress and the prettiest blooms I ever did see? There aren't really adequate words to describe how much I'm truly obsessing over this amazing color palette, and this wintry wedding theme.

Lucky for us Shea Brianne Photography was there to capture all of the gorgeousness that unfolded that day. With floral design by Charity of He Loves Me Flowers, this shoot has it all! It's edgy and romantic and it's simply inspiring!

From the team, "The inspiration for this styled shoot came from a desire to provide inspiration for winter brides who were in search of a fresh, lighthearted twist on your typical winter wedding."

"...this is for the brides who are getting married in the winter time, but don't necessarily want to incorporate the usual "Christmas-like" color palette..."

..."we set out to create a scene that was icy in color, but soft and romantic in essence..."

"...we based the styling choices off of the sweetest ideas of winter: snowflakes, sugar plum fairies, and soft winter stoles...."

With a touch of whimsy, and lots of sea-blue tulle, this shoot provides the modern bride with an option that blends creativity, romance, and a bit of edge...

The model was chosen specifically due to her amazing locks...

And while she usually sports the on-trend look of granny chic silver hair, for this shoot, she added a lovely and subtle blue color.

Hair Stylist, Bri of Diamonds & Do's, created a soft braid for Jenny's look that made for both an effortless and beautiful statement.

The dress color made a nice contrast against the wintery outdoor backdrop of pine trees and oak branches, as well as with the more neutral indoor shots.

For the bouquet, Charity of He Loves Me Flowers opted for an organic look to compliment the romantic feel of shoot...

She chose a base of white stock and peonies and paired it with some silvery-colored filler and blue berry stems.

With a silk silver ribbon tied around the base, this bouquet split up the blue elements of the shoot and added a pure feminine touch.

An Allison Parris heirloom dress was chosen for this shoot for it's stunning color and soft tulle...

...but also because they wanted to show brides that you don't have to choose a traditional full-length white gown to look gorgeous for your bridal or engagement photos!

As for the details of the outfit, snowflake studs were selected and paired a silvery-taupe faux fur stole.

From the team, "The dessert table consisted of a simple buttercream frosted white naked cake and some teal macarons, as well as with some silver tapered candles."

Macarons by Elle's Patisserie were whipped up in the prettiest blue!

Photographer, Shea Brianne wore many hats in today's shoot! She not only photographed the entire thing, but she also created the stationery and did the makeup!

Such a fresh and funky approach to wedding inspiration. One that I really appreciate as it's such a beautiful example of artsy "i do's," done right! Lots of love to all of the talented wedding professionals who came together to bring this dreamy shoot to life!
