With summer weddings in full swing, Strictly Weddings has their eye on inspiration for our Winter brides who will soon be taking their much anticipated walk down the aisle. Lucky for us, we have stumbled upon a very chic Winter wedding encompassing both high-style grandeur and the warmth and intimacy we all crave in the colder temps. To start, we are in-love with the beauty of this Chicago architectural masterpiece, the Rookery, whose regal ivory palette and gorgeous gold trimmings make for the perfect Winter white wedding tale. What bride wouldn’t dream of making their big debut down this beautifully ornate master staircase?
Bringing balance to this regally expansive space are soft and graceful bundles of white blooms including roses, anemones, ranunculus, sweet peas, and hydrangeas. Adding additional warmth are golden mercury glass votives casting their romantic glow. We are equally enamoured by the charm and elegance of the bride’s vintage look; a sophisticated Rafael Cennamo ace gown, gorgeous stole fur, and thoughtful selection of 1920’s inspired accessories. Finally, her choice of classic black & white for the bridal party brings ultimate sophistication to this classy Winter affair.
Today’s Winter wedding inspiration comes to us from Elizabeth Anne Designs. To see more photos, visit their blog “Sophisticated Black & White Weddings” featured here.
