There is no season more romantic than the holidays. The stark contrast between the winter landscape and the warmth, coziness and love that envelops indoor spaces this time of year is intoxicating. Could you need another reason to get married in winter?! But if a big wedding is too overwhelming for you to imagine during the busy holiday season, let this romantic elopement convince you to make your big day more intimate.


For this styled shoot, CAKE Event Co. was so inspired by the stunning natural beauty and warmth of the holiday season. Domaine Roy & Fils, a favorite PNW (Pacific Northwest to any newbies) venue that boasts stunning Willamette Valley views, offered the perfect setting to achieve a gorgeous winter elopement-inspired shoot.


This shoot payed homage to the quintessential colors and textures of winter, emphasizing simplicity through understated elegance and natural charm. By mixing bohemian details with bold, whimsical bouquets, antique finds and delicious, deep red Pinot for the couple to toast with throughout the day, the end result was so romantic. It was a winter elopement dream!


A fur wrap and elegant headpiece is the epitome of glam. These chic elements contrasting with the rustic backdrop make a stunning combination. Not to mention, a fur wrap is a stylish way to keep warm for your portraits during these colder months!


White cakes with simple greenery are all the rage this year. The neutral color scheme plays well with the metallic tablescape details.


It’s all about texture when it comes to centerpieces. Incorporate luscious greenery with robust red floral to make Christmas come to life.
