How To Have A Gorgeous Central Illinois Winter Wedding

Winter Wedding Inspiration

When we first met Sarah to discuss her wedding flowers, we knew this wedding was going to be unique and different than anything we had done before!  Nelson’s parent’s grow wheat on their farm in Colorado and Sarah wanted to personalize her wedding bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages with the wheat her future mother-in-law had given her from their Colorado farm.  She was ready to embrace the current trend of mixing metals, silver, gold and copper, so we decided we would spray the wheat silver.  For the bouts we used the silver wheat, mini pine cones, evergreens and wrapped them with copper wire.

She loved the look of white garden roses and anemones, which blended perfectly with her winter white bridal dress from Adore Bridal Boutique, and to pull in the silver we used dusty miller and lightly sprayed the seeded eucalyptus and evergreens silver.  Rounding out this winter wedding bouquet were pine cones which coordinated with the pine cone boutonniere and the bridesmaid’s pine cone bouquets.

Sarah found her inspiration for her bouquets & bouts from Pinterest and showed us a photo of how she wanted her pine cone bouquets to look.  It was our first time to create these unique bouquets – and we do love a challenge and doing something different!! We covered a bouquet holder with baby’s breath and silver sprayed eucalyptus seeds to create a base; then inserted a pick into the pine cones and secured them in the holder.

The hunter green bridesmaid’s dresses  from Adore Bridal Boutique had a sparkly silver inset in the bodice and who would have thought the grass would be so green in the middle of December in central Illinois?!  However no one was complaining about the mild weather and Kara Kamienski was able to capture these beautiful outdoor photos at Ewing Manor.

The reception was held at Mariott Downtown Normal where Cake Crumbs Ltd.http://mommybakes.webs.com/ created a pine cone bride and groom for topping the wedding cake.  They added the white garden roses, mini pine cones and silver sprayed eucalyptus along with more of the silver sprayed wheat for a beautiful winter inspiration wedding cake!
