Spring is just around the corner, and although we can’t wait for the warmer weather and all the beautiful weddings it will bring, we wanted to indulge our love for gorgeous winter nuptials one last time before the season was up; with its snowy rural New Hampshire landscape, vintage details, and rustic charm, we think this stunning lavender and rosemary inspired stylized shoot is the perfect way to do just that. Here’s what Blue Jar Events had to say about it:

For this inspiration shoot, we wanted to create a romantic, soft, rustic winter wedding with a touch of vintage glam that offered an alternative to silvery, glittery winter weddings (which we also love). We were inspired by lavender and rosemary, and incorporated both throughout the shoot, from the overall color palette to the drink and menu selections to the invitation design. We love the symbolism behind both – lavender is a representation of peace and tranquility, while rosemary is often associated with love and remembrance. Perfect for a winter wedding.
