Skyla and Reese’s Outdoor Winter Wonderland Wedding

Skyla and Reese got both engaged and tied the knot in 2020 - proving LOVE was not canceled this year. The couple loves camping and nature, so an outdoor wedding was the ultimate backdrop for their big day. With a rich navy and gold palette, this quintessential winter wonderland wedding was celebrated with those closest to the couple and live-streamed on Facebook for guests to join virtually from afar. To sprinkle more magic onto this snowflake-filled-affair was unexpected December rain that made everything that much more special. Congrats Skyla and Reese!

What flowers were in your bouquet? 
We decided to go with faux flowers that turned out gorgeous. I really wanted navy blue roses and since we would have to dye them we went silk. I am very happy bc the dye would have ended up all over my dress bc of the rain!

We had my silk bouquet made, but added some navy baby’s breath to it. Everyone else’s floral (my bridesmaid and flower girls hoops, and the groom and best mans boutonnières were DIY.
