Photo Shoot : a winter stylized wedding with peppermint goodness

Welcome to 2011. I hope everyone had a terrific holiday and a very Happy New Year. Here's to a wonderful 2011 for all and congratulations to all the newly engaged brides and grooms that have stumbled upon my blog - welcome. Today on the blog, the holidays will be continuing for one more day as I have come across two spectacular winter/holiday photo shoots that I just couldn't pass by. You are going to LOVE them both. First up is a stylized winter wedding shoot from David and Drexelle of D. Park Photography that is brimming with ideas and quite a few of the ideas could even be incorporated into a Valentine's Day wedding.

The bouquet and boutonniere featured varied hues of Christmas red in dahlias, Heart Roses and spray roses with bright white roses accented with mini peppermint Christmas ornaments.

The white wintery tree is adorned with bright red ornaments and peppermint accents.

Silver beaded trim glass chargers were used and the custom invitation suite is called "a modern Christmas", the design was simple but fun with accents of red with striped red and white twine.

A Peppermintini - gotta love that. It's a peppermint martini with crushed peppermints on the rim.

I love the two tier cake. It's covered in white fondant and features a scalloped edge with a fun hand piped red loop design. Inside the chocolate cake is a holiday inspired peppermint butter cream. The flowers on the cake are large red dahlias accented with peppermint centers.

Thank you so much to David and Drexelle of D. Park Photography for sharing this lovely detailed peppermint themed winter shoot with my readers today. To see more from David and Drexelle, please visit their blog. And, stay tuned as another holiday themed shoot is coming up in a little while.
