Seems lately there are so many gorgeous fur jackets out there--real as well as faux--for the big winter wrap up. Jackets come in different lengths from styles that clinch the waistline to 3/4 length. Want to keep the chill away while flaunting a great skirt? A jacket could be your best bet. Think about this: How great would any of these be for post wedding? I think they'd all rock a nice pair of pants or jeans . . . .
White is synonymous with Christmas especially when it glistens! Think snowflakes, lights, candles, icicles on the trees--- If you've been dreaming of a white Christmas, here's a medley of inspirations perfect for the Christmas time wedding complete with plenty of snow and sparkle.
What could be more winter festive than a red velvet dress against the backdrop of snow? This Christmas styled fashion shoot captured by Visions Photgraphy out of Nashville is purely a winter wonderland of inspiration. I'm particularly loving the very subtle and classy fashion element to this study of images. Just the right amount of chic to viva la difference without over doing it . . . .
Winter weddings are so magical and this styled shoot at Isham Farm in Vermont tops them all! I just love the mix of an Ice cold clime with the warm rustic tones of the indoors. Photographed by Elisabete Compnion of Lis Photography, she has put together a kind of visual diary entry to inspire all those winter brides out there whether they're tying the knot next month or next year.
Said Lis about capturing this incredible set of images, " While I was planing this shoot, I had a hard time to find a male model, then Kathleen (the bride/model) suggested her husband would be happy to be the "groom". What made it more special, is the fact that they didn't have their wedding pictures done, because he was deployed overseas right after their wedding, and they didn't have the time to plan a wedding ceremony. It was really special to have the chance to give them this gift . . ."
I initially created this space for my clients. Eventually brides looking for that touch of wow found their way here. Draping and playing with fabric started some twenty years back when I did a three-year stint as a bridal fabrics buyer. After that I opened Bridal Alternatives, a custom design studio and ever since have had the opportunity of working with brides who want that extraordinary one-of-a-kind dress. I'm in love with fashion history and re-invention of the past.
Other connections to fashion? I’ve been a columnist for San Francisco Art and Fashion News and have a weekly fashion buzz on One Wed Blog. I founded The Design Project of San Francisco, a networking organization of fashion professionals collaborating their skills and talents on projects. I’m currently working on a book called—you guessed it—'Bride Chic', all about that white gown and very special designer/client relationship. I live with my husband Edgar and Chihuahua Piccalina in Marin County California.
