So, we went out of order.
We bought a house before getting engaged.. And now I think we’ve picked our venue and date, too.
Today is our anniversary, and we planned a morning out since SO is working tonight 🙁 We drove up into the mountains to a quaint little 23-room arts and crafts style inn. We had brunch, and then asked to see their wedding space.
The building is lovely and quaint and so intimate. The menu is farm to table. There are two bars, and fireplaces in every room. I fell in love almost instantly.
I want a Christmas time wedding (the week before, I think). When I thought about what was important to me when I got married, all I could think was that I wanted intimate, warm, and magical in some way. For me, I associate all of those feelings with Christmas.
So! Show me any and all winter/Christmas weddings. I think I’m leaning toward warm dark reds and greens with gold accents. I imagine sparkling lights and lots of greens, and I would love to see how this translates into real life. And even if you didn’t have this color pallette, post pictures anyway! I’m always looking for inspiration!

Sounds lovely! I hope those close to you will be available the week before Christmas.
I love little touches like the deer. You can spray paint plastic toys from the dollar store for the same look.

Oh, this is so beautiful!
I know, I said the same thing when I spoke to my family about it. I was hesitant and was like “Ohhhhh the holidays are so difficult.. Everyone’s running around crazy”. And they all looked at me like I was insane. They said it would be a priority, whenever it is.
Just in case though, I made sure they had the two weeks before and the week after Christmas open too 😉

This is how our venue decorated around Christmas. It was absolutely gorgeous. We were supposed to get married today, but due to the snow storm it got pushed back to April so I dont have any pictures on how my vision was. I also have to add that the napkins were folded like little trees!! It was ridiculously adorable. I could hardly contain myself.
