Anyone out there planning a winter wedding? It’s kinda hard to not at least have it on your radar after scrolling through the photos Sarah Morrill snapped at a venue that makes for the perfect industrial winter wedding scene. Paula of A Family Affair of Maine had this vision to tell a story that would invoke the drama of winter and infuse it with the light and life that comes with spring. All those feelings are wrapped up in modern touches, like the lights above and moody accents you’ll see in the post.

Paula says, The table design was comprised of a unique black stained bar height table with custom white canvas panels and sheer white Swiss dot chair skirts that mimic our wedding dress. Pewter platters and trays, some on wrought iron stands were used to create additional height and visual symmetry beneath three sputnik-style chandeliers with gold dipped bulbs. Although silver is a focus, both gold and silver metals were used to complement the black and white color scheme and proved to be a stunning canvas to the spring floral design and color palette.
The floral inspiration, via Megan of FIELD Sustainable Floristry: Maine winter has its special gifts of darkness, coziness, intimacy, and reflection that I loved the chance to highlight in this pretty shoot. The silver flower platters brought a shiny reflective aspect to the dinner tablescape, and their varying heights highlighted the tall dark table and tall dark venue ceilings. I filled these platters with plant foliage lush with purple undertones, creamy veins, speckles, fuzz, and iridescent qualities to play off the silver. The use of novel plant foliage added interest and abundance to the arrangements. I worked in coordinating hues of deep burgundy ranunculus, purple checkered lillies, plums, black agonis leaves, lady slippers, and white garden roses. The palette was rich with texture, shimmer, and winter darkness.
They actually set it up so the ceremony came after the dinner in order to capture the space with this romantic lighting that symbolizes the end of a wonderful engagement.
What a beautiful concept. Thanks to everyone below who brought it together!
