Baby it’s cold outside! Here in New England we’ve said another goodbye to foliage and holiday season is officially here. As the days get shorter and the nights get chillier, we look to our favorite winter wedding trends to keep our spirits bright. From longtime favorites–we see you, hot cocoa bar!–to newfound inspo, we’ve gathered our favorite decor ideas to inspire all the couples out there planning winter “I do’s.”

Studio Nouveau

Quaint character and classic romance make the perfect pair in this gorgeous Bethel, ME wedding.

Ashley and Tim welcomed guests to the Bethel Inn Resort for a weekend of wedding bliss. The happy couple set the tone for their fun-filled celebration with a morning 5K run, complete with custom bride and groom wedding outfits. An outdoor ceremony on the property’s lawn led to an elegant reception where a palette of ivory, sage and navy came together to complete the day’s simple, yet sophisticated atmosphere. Thank you to the oh-so talented photographers at Studio Nouveau for capturing this day so beautifully!

lindsay-fitz-100

We’re head over heels for this intimate Diamond Cove wedding from this past summer. Lindsay and Fitz’s “I do’s!” struck the perfect chord of simple, coastal romance.

Kentucky natives, Lindsay and Fitz, opted for an intimate celebration at a family home on Diamond Cove. Guests dressed all in white–per the bride’s request–watched the happy couple exchange vows overlooking the water before taking to the high seas for a celebratory trip on the SCHOONER. We love how Lindsay and Fitz let their laid-back style curate a truly unique event. Thank you to the lovely Darling Photography for sharing these gorgeous images with us!
