Christmas Wedding Inspo - Wilmington, NC
Christmas Wedding Inspo.
This styled shoot in Wilmington, N.C., gives us all the chic Christmas vibes with its shades of black, gold, white and red. Centered around the charming 105 Bakery event venue, exposed brick, crawling vines and lush courtyard provide the perfect ambiance for a winter wedding.
Keepsake Memories Photography captured the styling of Trendy Bride to create a bold, yet fashionable scene for brides who want a little something extra for their holiday weddings. The 1930s/1940s-era building boasts characteristic architecture that makes for interesting backdrops.
The focal point of the shoot is, of course, the bride’s Kelly Faetanini Macbeth gown. The bold contrast of the polished silk white top with the dramatic ostrich feather black skirt creates a commanding impression
Gold accents like ornate trays add a dynamic touch, while clear invitations infuse a modern flair.
The bride’s accessories include elegant lace-embellished heels and statement black tassel earrings.
For a splash of holiday spirit, the flowers center on a red and green color palette. A crisp red rose bouquet pops against the bride’s gown.
The exposed brick wall of the venue is adorned with the sporadic placement of ferns – a unique twist on traditional holiday greenery.
The tablescape also incorporates traditional Christmas colors of red, green and white, along with a splash of black. And a textured white table linen adds a dose of softness to the industrial aesthetic.
Black and gold charger plates are adorned with clear dinner plates and clear menu cards.
The center of the table is embellished with fresh greenery and black taper candles. The floral centerpiece ties it all together with red and white flowers nestled in a bed of greens.
The wedding cake features gold and black details. Written in gold, the Chinese text says “I love you,” and the layer of black feathers perfectly mirrors the bride’s gown.
Outside, the bride finds a picture-perfect red door to serve as her backdrop. And she makes her way around a historic property to settle in between two brick columns, showcasing her stunning winter wedding look on the streets of historic Wilmington.
Christmastime weddings don’t always have to be filled with red velvet, colored lights or snowflakes. In fact, it’s the perfect time to stretch the imagination and redefine what a Christmas wedding means to you. Bakery 105 is the ideal setting to channel this bride’s bold and fashion-forward style, but in a way that still says “Christmas” like we all know and love.
