The team of Southern California wedding professionals who put this Big Bear winter wedding inspiration together enjoyed a snow reprieve from the life of near-perfect, sunny weather they're accustomed to.
Cindy wore a Kite and Butterfly boho wedding gown, accessories from Young Hearts Co, and a beautiful engagement ring from Jewelry Exchange in Tustin. Nick wore a charcoal Michael Kors jacket with a dark wash jean and chocolate brown shoes from Friar Tux for a mountain casual vibe.
The design team wanted a classic winter lodge feel, but with a bohemian twist. So they chose Pine Rose Cabins for their venue and incorporated free-spirited, boho details throughout the space. Rustic lanterns, vintage brass candlesticks, vintage green glass bottles and natural elements sourced straight from the forest adorned the ceremony site. – The couple stood underneath an oversized evergreen branch suspended with four burgundy dahlias for that pop of color. The floral arrangements created by Bottles and Blooms incorporated unique bohemian elements such as feathers, cotton, and blackberries to help carry out the vision along with blue thistle for that unique pop of blue! Silky multi-colored ribbons cascaded from the breathtaking and whimsy bridal bouquet that was an eclectic mix of greenery and blooms accented with feathers. The bride wore a lush flower crown that tied in the back with a silky forest green ribbon atop her lovely long locks designed by Design Visage.
The tabletop was designed by Events By Robin, which was inspired by layering colors and textures that started with a velvety gold hue linen from La Tavola Linens. The next layer of the soft linen was a dark galvanized metal charger from Baker Party Rentals to provide a contrast and then layered with vintage gold accented china from Sun Drop Vintage . The frosting to this place setting was delicately wrapped burlap inspired napkins tied with a forest green velvet ribbon. But, the cherry on top was the intricately shaped shimmery gold feather escort card designed by Honey Crisp Design. The 2017 Pantone color of the year, “Greenery” also inspired Robin to incorporate shades of green into the overall design. Loving the green pops with the use of vintage goblets, velvet ribbon, vintage glass bottles and velvet vintage loveseat.
The romance in the winter crisp air was undeniable as the votive candles and lanterns twinkled with warmth while the couple snuggled on the marvelous emerald green velvet loveseat from Sundrop Vintage! The wedding cake was designed by Rooney Girl Bake Shop and also had a layering inspiration. The first layer had a pattern designed to mimic the delicate lace on the bride’s gown. The same forest green velvet ribbon wrapped the middle layer, ending with a very boho metallic gold painted top layer. The cake was accented with feathers, organic twigs, cotton and fresh florals! All of these elements combined created a rustic winter wonderland dream.
