A Midwinter Night's Dream Styled Wedding Shoot {a unique twist on A Midsummer Night’s Dream}

Today's styled shoot is a fun twist on "A Midsummer Night’s Dream". Katie, the wedding planner of Katie Rose LLC says that when she was growing up, she loved William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream". She wanted to take the play and show how the fairies would celebrate during Midwinter. Katie writes . . . "In a season marked by dreary grays and barren branches, Titania, Queen of the Fairies, radiates in the stark landscape. We took a time often thought to be ugly and dead and created beauty and vitality."

Katie discusses the ideas behind this photo shoot . . . "The Woodsman’s wife provided antlers as our nod to the playful Puck. Using a rectangular table is the perfect opportunity to have something as bold as the stunning floral garland bringing more life into the scene. We wanted to tie in many rustic and natural elements in an elegantly formal place setting to show that they can be used in more ways than the typical farm table. Our color scheme centers around lavender and slate blue. To brighten our look, we used copper as a highlight." With wineries being a popular venue throughout the DC region, the team used the vines as a backdrop to showcase the amazing views.

Katie now invites you to join Titania and Oberon as they welcome Theseus and Hippolyta for a night of revelry and mischief in a Midwinter Night’s Dream.
