This past December we were pleased to work with Sara Muchnick of Engaging Affairs on Julie and Geoff’s gorgeous winter wonderland wedding! Everything from the linens to the flowers to the weather (!!) coordinated perfectly with the theme. It might have been a snowy day outside, but it was a perfect compliment to the decor inside!
Carnations were the flower of the night! While carnations are often thought of as a cheap flower, used in this style – packed tightly together in long runners down the length of their rectangular tables – the carnations give only a feeling of luxe, modern, and in this case, wintery, texture. Accents of silver branches in white vases added to the wintery feel of the event. The tables alternated between the carnation runners and the branch arrangements, which were also used for the ceremony decor. For the placecard table, an orb of white carnations on a dramatic black hourglass vase added to the color theme of black and white. And the black and white fondant cake rested on a snowy bed of packed white carnations.
For the bride, a simple bouquet of white ranunculus and white roses helped round out the clean, modern feeling of the decor. The bridesmaids carried black centered white anemone to round out the color scheme.
