This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Megan and Tommy, held at PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn in Lake Tahoe, CA. Two feet of snow had fallen the weekend before the wedding, making for a beautiful winter backdrop. The couple spends every weekend possible in Lake Tahoe together in the winter so the location was the perfect place for their wedding celebration.
The wedding ceremony was a quick 25 minutes outdoor setting, with classic Christmas tunes playing in the background. They served their guests hot chocolate, coffee and tea along with hand warmers and shawls to keep them warm. Unique touches like cones full of biodegradable snow was placed on all the aisle seats to throw at the end of the ceremony which made it very fun and playful for their guests. To keep warm the bridesmaids wore Uggs and Sorel boots under their long gowns.

What special touches are you including in your winter wedding?
Creative floral arrangements can be a bit more challenging in the winter months, but this bountiful bouquet is anything but bland. We love the cool colors, organic textures and wintery touches (hello, pine!) that make this arrangement a show stopper. Isn’t it wonderful?
Finalizing all the details for your winter wedding? If you’re looking for a chic way to bring the rustic feel of the outdoors inside, and you want something stylish for your tabletops, here’s a little DIY project that will guide guests to their tables in a fresh and festive way.
Artificial pine tree (or real ones if you can find them this petite)
Spray paint and acrylic craft paint (we chose a sparkly one to add a little dazzle)
Step 1: Prep Your Table Number
Spray paint your wood number with the base color you chose. To save time, you can do this earlier in the day (or the night before) to let it completely dry before applying the paint.
Step 2: Paint It Pretty
Paint on your acrylic top coat to your fancy. We laid it on thick to optimize the sparkle!
Step 3: Wrap It Up
Our little pine tree came with burlap pre-attached. If yours doesn’t, simply cut a square large enough to be able to cinch the top with string and secure it to your tree.
Step 4: Glue and Stick
Using your glue gun, affix the dowel to the back of the wood number. Stick it into the bottom of your tree until it can stand on its own… and enjoy!
