Happy first official day of winter! How about that Christmas tree farm shoot we shared yesterday? Um, so so incredible! If you love the idea of a winter wedding but *not* the holiday theme, perhaps you’ll fancy this white + gold vignette coming to us from Salubria in Virginia. Blushing Blooms Event Florist and Bella Giornata Events and Design focused on the spirit of early winter, and a timeless love story full of history and richness. Thanks to Nicole Ballard Photography for sharing the photos!
Jaime of Blushing Blooms Event Florist says, Salubria is a Georgian Estate just miles from Culpeper, Virginia. It was built from a love story between Reverend Thompson and his wife, Lady Thompson, and has been a gracious host to love stories since. Its romantic lines and high ceilings were highlighted by the wild greenery + monochromatic ﬂorals chosen. Heirloom pieces passed on from my grandmother were the perfect ﬁt to adorn the table and my own nod to my family’s love stories.
When we think of amazing floral-adorned cake, this beauty from Sorby Sweets will forever come to mind.
One last note from Jamie: The couples who choose this time of year tend to be old souls. This magical day was right after time fell back, it seemed to have stopped. Stopped to let us appreciate every wisp of newly chilled wind and the long-lost details we long for in bridal portraits. Nothing trendsetting here, purposely, just a nod to this magical time of year when things slow down and we can appreciate our past and present.
