SNOWY ROMANTIC WINTER WEDDING INSPIRATION SHOOT / by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

Last week we shared especially exciting news about a romantic winter wedding inspiration shoot that we were lucky to be a part of along with many talented Wisconsin creatives!! The very first images from this shoot were featured on the lovely Elizabeth Anne Designs (we hope you stopped by to take a peek!!), and we couldn't have imagined a more perfect way to reveal our snowy little gem to you! From a one-of-a-kind lace gown designed & handcrafted by Monirose to a beautiful custom hairpiece by Plume & Lace, paired with thoughtful creative styling by Anna of A.Styled Event and lavish rich florals created by Marius Bell Floral & Events, we cannot emphasize how much of an ABSOLUTE HONOR it was to capture these images!!!!!! Our gorgeous models, Lea & Tricia (who are real-life sisters!!) and our groom Alex were both a joy and a BLAST to photograph, and the very sweet Taylor Buth did their make-up to perfection!!

At the Schlitz Audobon Nature Center on a perfectly snowy Sunday, we were all like kids in one giant candy store – no timeline to adhere to, no rules, just all of us in our element!! Styling pretty details, arranging stunning florals, creating artful images, and models donning beautiful attire, with smiles on our faces every second :D We are so grateful for all that were involved with this little labor of love - a huge and heartfelt thank you to each of you, friends!! Our hope is that these images might serve as a bit of inspiration for midwest brides who are longing for a gorgeous winter wedding... perhaps even filled with rich gold & cranberry touches!! ;)

So Much Love! | K&B
