Whether you are planning a holiday fete or a southern Christmas wedding, this cranberry, plum, navy and gold shoot is the perfect inspiration.

Southern Sophistication Designs wanted to bring the glamour and luxury of the holidays and mix it with the grace and elegance of a southern soiree.  A palette of cranberry, plum, navy and gold were chosen so as to use rich colors but not those of a traditional holiday theme. The invitation suite, menus and place cards were designed by Sweet E’s Celebrations and are hand calligraphy.   For the bride, a stunning Jovani gown was provided by High Maintenance Formalwear. This gown featured gold sequins and then sheer panels for that daring lady that wants to be classic yet sexy. For the bridesmaid, a fashion forward two piece ball gown was chosen in navy. The bodice of the gown was covered in gold sequins. Each lady wore relaxed and wavy finger curls in their hair and glam, dramatic makeup indicative of the 1920s era.

 Of course, we can’t forget about the Christmas Tree!!
Decked out in beautiful feather ornaments with a bouquet matching topper, it also featured hanging Mr. and Mrs. signs from Kate Aspen as ornaments. Beside the tree, guest could enjoy a tasty Cranberry martini to toast the season. Our bride would not have been complete without her stunning vintage blonde mink coat to keep her from getting too chilly in the cold winter months!
