The holidays have passed, the new year has arrived, and all of our winter brides are wishing for one thing: a snowfall on their wedding day to create a magical scene. We can’t control the weather, but we can control our wedding décor, ideas and accents to produce a perfect winter wedding. Inspiring winter color schemes, décor, flowers, and accents can help bring your theme to life. Using our winter wisdoms will help you and your guests remember why you chose to get married at the most wonderful time of the year.
Here on the East Coast, we often look to the other side for inspiration. West Coast weddings have a particular vibe: soft colors, outdoor settings (thanks to their perpetually perfect weather!), bohemian brides. We looked to one of our favorite websites, Carats & Cake, and picked out a few of the California weddings that dreams are made of.
With California’s majestic mountains, palm trees, and lush greenery providing the backdrop, this ceremony is everything a traditional Cali wedding should be. We love the touches of Hollywood-style glamour that offset the natural beauty of the location.
NOTE: I asked our Creative Director Lindsay to share the story behind her romantic wedding photos. We always love to share our brides’ love stories, but this one is very close to our hearts! – Rachel
I remember Rachel emailing me about this good friend of hers I “had to meet.” I almost said no because of a series of bad blind dates but something told me to meet him. We met outside a restaurant in the city and he was standing there waiting for me with his headphones on. I
thought that was funny because we didn’t know each other so I could have been walking around calling his name and he wouldn’t have known. Immediately something clicked and even though I was nervous, I felt so comfortable with him. I’ll always have such a vivid and special memory of that night. I think I was smiling the entire train ride home. Read More

Carats & Cake featured the picture perfect wedding of my dear friends Aaron and Lindsay. What could be better than designing wedding flowers for a couple I introduced?
Castle Hotel & Spa, one of Westchester’s poshest venues, was the perfect setting for the outdoor ceremony under a fairytale floral arch and a glamorous reception surrounded by high and low centerpieces and arrangements in shades of purple. The romantic bridal bouquet was composed of rare Mentha roses from South Africa, in the most delicate shade of lavender. I loved Lindsay’s taste and vision so much that we hired her as Bride & Blosssom’s new Creative Director! Read More
