Inspiration | Precious Jewels

The winter landscape in Vermont can start to look a little monochrome after a while, with snow-covered mountains, trees, and the pale gray, cloudy sky that typically dominates from December through March. To cut through the stark white, we love the idea of using deep, rich jewel tones to add warmth and sparkle to a winter season wedding. Dark purples, reds, studded with glittering gold, are the perfect foil to the ice and frost.

Dark chocolate whoopie pies are a perfect match for delicate gold calligraphy. Lots of shiny, vintage decorations give tabletops luxurious charm and interest. The sage and lime greenery pairs nicely with the more saturated garnet and plum colored flowers. Strings of cafe lights hang as a backdrop and give the entire area a warm glow that will last well into the evening.


A bold, gold singuarl bloom adorns the three-tiered cake. A simple gold lace band accents the alternating purple and blue layers to give it just enough glitz and glam. A theme of rustic elegance is carried through the combination of rustic, wood block table numbers and farmhouse table, with gilded, golden flatware and jewel-hued napkins. The bright colors of the flowers are eye-catching and almost make you forget about the snowbanks outside.
