It may be cold outside, but all is warm and wonderful for a winter-themed celebration that relies on subtle, earthy and unexpected materials and combinations. Aglow with a blend of gold and silver, characterized by minimal color and pattern, this fusion of rustic and contemporary is masterfully executed.

Unexpected Elements

This setting for a romantic winter wedding relies on a surprising juxtaposition of elements for its stunning effect. It's simple and lighthearted -- no "shouting" here. Instead, a decidedly unique nod to winter fuses grey, beige and natural wood tones, warmed and softened by a lot of sophisticated Silver Birch linen. This is not an icy winter scene, but a warm and welcoming expression.

White-dusted greens and the crystallized tips of gray-green succulents complement a variety of white flowers in silver-toned containers. Simple sprigs of white birch twigs and groups of cotton bolls that retain their rustic stems and pods are unusually appealing in this storybook setting.

The subtle coloration is ethereal, and the effect couldn't be more dramatic. Birch trees provide a stately arbor for the bride and groom, while nature appears at its wintry best with pale benches, natural antlers, white fur and silver accents. It all lifts this wedding chapel into the realm of the sublime.

What could be more appealing than a richly patterned tablecloth and woven napkins in hues that are related but unmatched? The table, layered with silver-rimmed china, clear serving plates, and sparkling etched crystal, speaks elegance with a modern accent -- perfect for warming a midwinter wedding or creating a cooler illusion in August! The clear acrylic seating is an inspired touch!

Even the bridal bouquet of antlers, succulents and cotton bolls is a collection of unexpected elements. The message is clear: This is no ordinary wedding!
