We’ve found that brides are often intimidated by winter weddings. Sure, the soft snowfall can be beautiful, but that’s not always the picture of an Iowa winter day. More likely, you’ll find harsh winds with blinding snow or bleak skies, mushy street snow, and grey landscapes. Expressions Photography and Ember Grove Photography wanted to team up with other vendors and show brides that despite the gloomy weather, they can still plan a gorgeous, bright, fresh wedding. Through colorful and organic details, overflowing florals, and unique accessories, we collaborated for a styled shoot that brought a little more lovely into the winter months. We shared our vision with local vendors, centering around a presence of corals and kelly greens, an array of bright colors, and the combination of industrial context with very delicate details.
