Winter is coming to its end, and it’s high time to enjoy some beautiful and heart-warming winter weddings. Between the glamorous gowns, the snow-covered farm, the reindeer, and all the desserts a sweet tooth could hope for, Jennifer and Bradley’s NYE wedding at The Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms was pure winter magic!
The ceremony and reception spaces were filled with pine trees, garlands, velvet, rustic-vintage table accents, and a stunning display of florals. The wedding decor was inspired by Great Gatsby, all things rustic and farmhouse, animals, vintage fur, winter greenery, rose gold, and NYE glam. From the fresh pine aligning the aisle to the twinkling cafe lights, the moody candlelights, and the giant moose head embellishing the mantle, the ambiance surely could have been described as nothing short of lodge meets glam. Given that the bride is a veterinarian based in Chicago, Illinois, and Brad is just as big of an animal lover, it was no shock that two reindeer from the North Pole, Comet and Elsa, made their debuts for the big day.
The wedding day fashion was inspired by 1920s glamour. With The Great Gatsby serving as inspiration, the bride paired a rare gunmetal Lutetia vintage mink heirloom with a form-fitting, backless mermaid gown. The Odette has a Swan inspired silhouette with very fine French lace dotted with pearls. The bride also ordered a detachable train to include for the ceremony, and obviously, the once in a lifetime photos. The groom was wearing a black tux with a velvet blazer.
