Rustic Red and Green Wedding Ideas – Themes Flowers and Decor

I love Christmas. And I love weddings. What I can’t understand is why more people don’t have Christmas weddings! It’s the most wonderful, love-filled time of the year!! What better time to get married than Christmas?!  The possibilities for decor are endless. Evergreen, ornaments, pinecones, twinkle lights, and twine. Candy canes, cookies, chocolate, hot cocoa, and s’smores. Never mind the Christmas trees 🙂 Everything is red, green, and glittering gold with loads of warmth and love. They would make for one heck of a celebration wouldnt you say? I can’t tell you how much I love these rustic Christmas wedding ideas from Aubrey and Kayleigh of Alluring Events and Design, captured perfectly by Kim J Martin Photography. This styled shoot is like a Christmas dream come true!! It’s romantic and magical and I’m just COMPLETELY in love with it all!!

{From Kim J Martin Photography} I loved working on this shoot with Aubrey and Kayleigh of Alluring Events and Design, because they are both super creative and I knew they would design something amazing. Aubrey sent me the inspiration board and I was immediately in love. The fusion of rustic with lots of country charm and a cheery Christmas feel made for such a unique combination. All the details were thoughtfully chosen and placed, and the way they brought everything together was amazing.

Our couple was an absolutely perfect fit. They are both a little country themselves (she brought her own cowboy boots!) and they are ridiculously in love, so of course they were a blast to photograph! I had so much fun incorporating them into each of our scenes and they had a blast since a lot of them involved eating cookies and candy 🙂

The other goal for the shoot was to show off the amazing venue, Avio Vineyards, which has just recently started doing weddings. I first saw Avio a few weeks before and my mouth dropped just as I was going up the driveway. There are rolling hills of vines, tuscan inspired buildings, and amazing nooks and crannies everywhere. Not only was the design by Alluring Events amazing, but our backdrop was amazingly gorgeous and especially perfect thanks to the fall leaves. It was definitely a photographers dream to have an adorable couple, a gorgeous venue and amazing design!

{From Aubrey and Kayleigh of Alluring Events and Design} The Alluring Events and Design team love doing styled shoots. It’s a chance for us to come up with an entire theme completely on our own and bring it to life. After some thought we knew we had to do something that we felt passionately about: The Holidays!

The inspiration for our Rustic Winter shoot really did come from the heart. We love the style and look of rustic décor and are absolutely in love with the holidays. It’s such a magical time of the year. From the treats and music to family and friends, it has such a warm and comforting feel. We wanted to capture that feeling by combining yummy winter treats and the great outdoors. Of course any winter set up would not be complete without a nice warm fire and a hot chocolate station!

We started brainstorming and first came up with the Treat Station. We wanted to gather as many delicious ‘wintery’ treats as we could find. From there we came up with the S’mores Station, which created such a cozy and romantic atmosphere. And last but not least we created a little hot chocolate station complete with Christmas mugs and whipped cream!

The couple we used for the shoot are dear friends of ours who were married about a year ago. They were SO much fun to work with and loved the treat stations. They had no problem getting into the theme and feeding each other lots and lots of yummy snacks.

Not only was the weather perfect and sunny, but the venue was gorgeous and full of animal life as well! There were horses, llamas, chickens, peacocks, dogs, cats, and turkeys! The venue owners were gracious enough to let us roam all over the beautiful property and take tons of awesome photos. Kim, our amazingly talented photographer, did not waste any square inch of opportunity for pictures. Every vendor involved was just so sweet and awesome to work with and the whole day was just so much fun.
