Today’s outdoor festive season wedding inspiration combines forest glam with a moody edge – the perfect, subtle way to celebrate during the upcoming holiday season. The simple, earth toned palette features pops of emerald green, gold and black, in a mix of textures. The stunning backdrop of the pine tree forest provided the perfect juxtaposition to the glam elements and refined color palette styled by Becky Daly of Daly Digs and captured by The Ganeys.
Rustic wood tones were paired with moody black accents and sequins to create an outdoor festive season wedding reception table. Foresty florals, full of texture and composed of unique foliage, were placed alongside stunning garden roses in mismatched brass vessels. Black chairs from Kate Ryan Linens were nestled angularly, welcoming guests in an unexpected way. At every place sat black flatware and a dinner menu. Hand-painted macarons from Sweets Illustrated were nestled among woodsy moss welcoming each guest to their outdoor festive season wedding.
