A Warm and Stylish DIY Winter Wedding

Categories Real Weddings

Lori and Zach had a beautiful winter wedding at Maumee Bay State Park Lodge in Maumee, Ohio. Lori got what she wanted–a warm and stylish wedding with a modern-vintage look and feel. Everyone looked like they were having a ball and we loved seeing the bridesmaids in mix-match dresses and shoes! Fun and eclectic–yet still put together and coordinating. A few more highlights from their winter wonderland wedding include their mint and grey + white and pink color scheme, Lori’s fab feather vintage hairpiece, first look photos, fun shots out in the snow, and creative DIY touches. Décor was kept simple and elegant. In fact, Lori, along with the help of her creative friends, made the bouquets, centerpieces, and guestbook poster. Well done!

Congrats Lori and Zach.

This elegant Vancouver wedding wasn’t a winter wedding, but this monochromatic white bouquet of roses, stephanotis and ranunculus is perfect for a winter wedding.

Can you imagine Linsey and Ben trying to choose just one photo for their save the date? With as many photos as fabulous as these, we’d recommend going with a multiple photo save the date to paint a bigger picture from such a fabulous day.

Winter Wedding at Historic Pere Marquette Depot

Categories Real Weddings

It’s our very first snowfall of the season here in Minnesota so we’re pretty excited to feature another winter wedding here on Truly Engaging. Andrew and Melissa got married in Bay City, Michigan. Melissa looked super stylish, stunning {and warm!} in her strapless gown, birdcage veil, white shrug and tea length gloves for the outdoor shots. The mainstay color for this Midwest wedding event was eggplant and it was beautifully rendered throughout their attire, flowers, favors and reception decor. Simple and elegant, their ceremony took place at the historic Pere Marquette Depot in downtown Bay City followed by a 5-star hotel reception. And the rest of the story … written on the smiling faces of our beautiful bride and groom!

Enjoy.
