Decorations & Details

As a little girl who regularly dreamed of her wedding day, I never imagined that it would take place in the middle of winter.

But it’s funny, really, how I began to embrace the beautiful, delicate details that would later come to light after our January 2nd date was set in stone.

The only thing I knew I wanted to incorporate right off the bat was the color scheme: eggplant and silver.

It was only after I began researching and designing our winter wedding that a Snowflake theme won over my heart.

Our tables were decorated with three different types and sizes of centerpieces, to help balance out the room. We incorporated a mix of what was provided by the venue, as well as some that were made up by my florist.

The frosty tree branches were a decoration that I knew I wanted right from the beginning, but the accented jewels that my florist added to hang from the branches were a beautiful surprise.

For our table numbers, Jay and I chose a random mix of baby pictures and current pictures of the two of us. I also chose a handful of my favorite quotes and sayings about “Love,” and included one on the bottom of each number card as well.

A friend of mine helped with the design of the snowflake and color-schemed backgrounds, which tied everything together perfectly.

For our favors, Jay and I chose to have a winter-themed candy station.

We provided small bags and boxes where guests could chose the candies they would like, which included a mix of white and silver chocolates, yogurt-covered pretzels, and chewy white candies.

The candy station was set out at the same time that our cake carving station was, which you can see a little bit of in the background.
