“Most of the couples that I work with choose to wed in the summer here in Oregon when the weather is gorgeous and the risk of rain (or snow!) is minimal,” says Becky Hart of Event Crush. “But there is something I just adore about cozy winter weddings and I wanted to show local brides how lovely an off-season wedding could be.” This styled shoot showcases a 1950s era with mid-century details. The Cloverdale Chapel, built in the early 1900s, was the perfect backdrop for this intimate winter affair.

“I think some people often associate winter with the holidays so they are afraid it will come off as cheesy, but there are so many classy ways to create a chic winter wedding look,” says Hart who suggests balancing out the rustic elements with a metallic of your choice. Hart says: “Silver candle holders (mercury glass gives a beautiful glow), chargers, and other elements will take your celebration from rustic to rustic chic.”
