I am super happy at how this whole shoot came together, given we planned it in just a few weeks. The vendors I work with are beyond talented, and each one brought their own bit of style to the shoot, both in styling, and creatively on their own, with just a few images, and a bit of a background on the Swedish aesthetic. The holiday part was a no-brainer, we all love a winter themed wedding, and had never seen it done in a very subtle way, one which doesn’t scream Christmas. The color pallet was inspired from the colors of the Dalha horses, and also many of Karl Larsen’s paintings. Out other inspiration came from the more modern Scandinavian  design, which is clean lines, very simple, and somewhat boho. We mixed the graphics of the Turkish Kilim, and the rustic table with more modern Eames chairs. For winter, a bit of Hygee pronounced “HUE-gah” (best word ever). Loosely translated it means cozy.

We decided on two different looks. One more rustic, with a “barn” country feeling, AKA the Red Hunter boots, for that pop of color. And the second, a more traditional gown, with the gorgeous blue suede Kate Spade shoes.

Changing the look, we swapped the traditional garden roses, and cafe au lait dahlias, for a hand-picked bright yellow yarrow, which is the color of Sweden’s flag.

We love that the simple boho hair goes with both looks, up or down, or braided, and that pop of red for the lip is just too perfect for the holiday. Don’t you think?

A big thank you to the creative talent involved, and all the hands that came together to make this happen in such a short amount of time.  A special thank you to my dear friend Kerri, for helping contribute ! Not only a lot of furniture, as well as design expertise, regarding everything Swedish! Our Gorgeous model (my dear cousin) for modeling and having so much fun with it!

I hope you can find some inspiration from the pics, either for a wedding, a holiday party, or just to look at some pretty. We all need that now & then!
