This Vintage Winter Wedding photoshoot will draw today’s modern bride into the elegant and timeless look and feel of a true vintage, winter wedding. Willowdale Estate's well known green doorway frames the bride beautifully.

This vintage winter wedding continues on into the reception with a tablescape highlighting nostalgic Blue Willow china and vintage silverplate flatware. A winter white faux fur runner lines the center of the tabletop with a collection of vintage brass candlesticks.

We love how well this vintage winter wedding themed photoshoot tied together with the aesthetic of WIllowdale Estate’s dining room.
