Christmas is just around the corner and we are shaking up the snowglobe of white weddings with a Nutcracker themed styled Wedding. No winter white wedding dresses allowed!
Our gorgeous Clara weds her prince in a romantic meets modern styled wedding! Dressed in a soft pastel purple gown accented by a flowing back bow, a single curly tendril cannot be contained by her crown as princess of the magical new lands as Clara dances beside her prince.
Who needs a white wedding dress when there is already plenty of snow outside?! If you are a winter bride I am *begging* you to wear a lightly shaded, or even boldly shaded wedding dress! Your heirloom wedding photos will make you shine brighter than the star on top of your Christmas tree, especially if you decide to brave the cold to grab a few shots in the snow; also highly recommended!
Our Nutcracker themed winter wedding was shot inside the Pittsburgh wedding venue, Hip at The Flashlight Factory. The interior of the venue is pouring with exposed brick and hardwood floors which easily played into a modern meets romantic feel. Detailed textures in the tablescape, floral design, our bride and grooms ensembles, and a four-tiered hanging wedding cake (wait until you see it below!) appear to have a glimmer of Christmas magic, set inside the historic building.
We couldn’t style a nutcracker-themed wedding without the traditional nutcracker soldiers! Iconic ‘snow dusted‘ nutcracker soldiers stood guard around a floor display of pillar candles that formed a semi-circle surrounding Clara’s wedding day bouquet.
If you are looking to mix in modern elements with your romantic wedding then the guest seating set up is for you! Clear acrylic seating lined our guest table that was overflowing with silky linens, soft florals, and textured goblets and glasses.
