This Florida warm weather winter wedding inspirational shoot was created to showcase that the feeling of a winter wedding can be done in Florida. It’s not too often that Florida gets really cold temperatures, and certainly rarely snow.
To bring winter to the shoot Swanky I Do’s and an incredible team of Florida wedding vendors incorporated elements that were eclectic, rich in color and a little glam. The color palette included ivory and black stripe, cranberry, emerald and gold. See more in the full gallery here, captured by Vine & Light Photography.
Winter decor interpretation
The venue lends itself to be inspired by the beautiful and not so traditional settings throughout the property. Some of the winter interpretation you will see includes gold antlers, fluffy white area rug (our snow!), a malamute (wolf like dog) and the rich contrast of the cranberry, black and white striped linen against the beautiful farm table. We mixed in vintage seating and stemware to compliment the modernness of the black and white striped linen and gorgeous gold rim glass charger plates. One of the highlights from the shoot was the focus on the floral. No table is truly complete without a beautiful centerpiece design. These gorgeous florals were carried throughout the bouquet and boutonniere that really added a pop of color to each image.
