Winter Wedding at Shades of Teal

Updated: Apr 1


Shades of Teal Creative Co. - Vassar, Michigan


This gorgeous winter wedding was put on by the beautifully talented Sarah, designer classy weddings, and owner of Shades of Teal Creative Co. This stunning wedding venue provides many services essential to the big day, from an indoor venue with a getting ready suite, to an outdoor ceremony space, as well as silk florals, arches, and any other wedding rental you could want, Shades of Teal has it all! Seriously, they have it all! And, for the creative, you can rent this space as a photo studio! So beautiful, and so much room for anything you could possibly want to do. It is located right down town Vassar, and Sarah will make sure that you have the most beautifully styled wedding, with everything you could ever want to make your wedding dreams come true.


This shoot was an incredible collaboration between many Michigan wedding industry talents and artists, and I had the pleasure of meeting and working with some of the most wonderful souls. Another amazing collaborator was our model Britney, and her husband Mike. Britney owns Infinity Bridal of Bay City, and provided us with both of the gorgeous bridal gowns, as well as all four of the bridesmaids gowns, as well as two bridesmaids, Briana and Keely who both work at Infinity. These gowns were gorgeous, and the models were perfect. Other vendors for this shoot are listed at the end of this blog post.


If you're thinking of planning a winter wedding, but wondering if the snow will hinder your big day, think again! It may be cold, but I promise the pictures will be so worth it, and this winter wedding was so refreshing after taking a few months break from wedding photography. Winter is usually the slower season for natural light photographers, so this was like a breath of fresh air for me, as I had been longing to create some beautiful content before nursing school started. A lot of these images ended up in my newly filled wedding and engagement portfolio, which you can check out here. And without further ado, please enjoy this sneak peek of our gorgeous winter wedding shoot!

I walked in to find the most adorable hot cocoa bar, a must for a winter wedding!
