We can’t think of a better way to celebrate Christmas on it’s eve, than with this stylish, holiday inspiration shoot from A Very Beloved Wedding, captured in achingly beautiful detail by Melanie Nedelko Photography. This vision, inspired by the classic, Christmas tune- “Baby Its Cold Outside”, is dressed in a festive holiday palette of vivid red, green, snow white and gold tones, while a sense of warm, comfort pervades in the welcome to get cozy with a blanket, candlelight, some cognac, a good book and freshly baked Christmas cookies.

The Lena Hoscheck wedding dress here is a stunner, featuring a lovely keyhole back and whimsical stars nestled in tulle. The bright red of the bride’s makeup and nail polish bears a stark and beautiful contrast to her soft, white dress in a nod and wink to the timeless tale of Snow White and the poisoned apple.

Needless to say, we are completely enchanted with the playful references and sophisticated glamour in this unique take on a holiday theme. Enjoy as we count down the final hours until Christmas!

From A Very Beloved Wedding:  This shoot was inspired by the jazz song, “Baby It’s Cold Outside”, with the voices of Dean Martin, Doris Day, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra. It is an ode to the happiest time of the year: Christmas, with all of its wonderful expectations. Similar to the joyous anticipation of a couple in love, especially in those moments when a bride or groom await the sight of their spouse on their wedding day.
