I know it’s still the middle of autumn, but I was so inspired by this orchid and kumquat and couldn’t wait to create a chic winter wedding board with it in mind. Crisp white is the perfect backdrop for this unique winter palette of evergreen and orange. Though it’s not a minimalist look, the details are simple and not over done. It balances classic and modern, for a timeless yet updated look. If you wanted to add a holiday touch to this winter wedding, without being too obvious, unembellished white crackers would be a good choice.

  • Wonderfully elegant inspiration board! While the color combination and the ornate elements you use aren't minimalist, the subtlety of the color and the scale result in a look that is simple and understated. What color(s) would you suggest for the maids' dresses and the men's suits to keep this subtlety intact?
