Merry Christmas everyone! When we saw this photo we knew we had to showcase it. It appears to be a Christmas wedding but actually took place on New Year’s Eve. A word from the bride: “We fell in love in the winter amongst the snow and pine trees during our hikes. We knew we wanted to create that same feeling for our guests. We used mostly greens and whites. During the summer we went to a local Tree Farm and tagged 35 sheared white pines and three corkscrew willow trees. We used the trees to create a forest effect in the church (we ended up using 62!) My father made the arches with wire and my father and husband wrapped them with pine roping then hung orchids, lilacs, cymbidium’s and amaranth and the candles from them. My father in law the day of the wedding took the thorns off of 400 white roses! My brothers hung the orchids off the corkscrew willow trees. Every aspect of this wedding was “do it yourself” and was truly a family affair.” How gorgeous is this indoor forest wedding?
