Inspiration For Your Intimate Beach Wedding

Intimate Winter Beach Wedding Inspiration

Winter time is the time of year that things slow down and time doesn’t seem to fly by quite as fast. The cold weather creates a more serene scene on North Carolina’s coastal cities than the summer crowded months. It is the perfect opportunity to throw an intimate wedding celebration and bring your closest loved ones around. Sarah D’Ambra Photography put together this winter themed styled shoot with blue tones, gold accents and a table runner of oyster shells to provide the perfect intimate winter beach wedding inspiration.

Winter Beach Wedding with Warmth

Mixed heights and sized candles and accents of gold with metal goblets were sprinkled around the table setting to add warmth to the decor. With the blue tone of the theme and the time of year, it’s so important to add a bit of depth in order to not create an icy cold experience for your guests, especially for a wedding celebration.

Oyster Decor For Your Intimate Winter Beach Wedding Inspiration

Whether or not you are from a coastal city, there is one thing we can most likely agree on – oysters are amazing! An incredibly unique option for your beach reception is to not only serve oysters as an appetizer or entree, but to use the shells as a part of your decorations. This intimate winter beach wedding inspiration shoot shows that when strung together, oyster shells make a magical table runner for your guests to enjoy.

Arbors have been a staple for wedding ceremonies for decades. There is in increase in the trend to create customized and unique wedding arbors like this triangular arbor for the wedding shoot in the Outer Banks. To complement the theme of the intimate winter beach wedding inspiration shoot, mixed candles, birch tree branches and trunks, and deer antlers were added to the arbor base. The combination of feminine and masculine aspects to the arbor turned out beyond stunning!
