Winter Wedding Fashion Trends

Winter is an incredibly popular season for people to get married, but sometimes colors are hard to decide. What are winter colors? Can you use bright colors in winter or do they have to be dark? Winter is not always a snowy wonderland here in Texas, so winter wedding trends change each year. After looking through some current trends, we came across some style inspiration that is sure to make your wedding pop! For the men, visit The Black Tux for your suit and tuxedo needs. And for the ladies, check out Azazie for your bridesmaid dresses! They both have options for any color palette you might be looking for! Here are some of our favorites for this winter season.

 Navy and Marsala: 
Marsala was the Pantone color of the year in 2015 and has continued to be a favorite through the years. Marsala is a red/burgundy color that goes well with many colors as shown on Pantone’s website. This winter however, navy is the color that pairs with it perfectly. Red and blue are seen together frequently but these rich colors break the traditional combination. Marsala bridesmaids’ dresses and navy tuxedos are sure to be a showstopper.

Olive and Black:
Olive and black are a very natural combination. They have an organic vibe with an elegant presentation to mix trends. Olive is a medium toned grey-green that is subtle but impactful. Black has a distinct contrast to make the olive pop. The use of a dark neutral such as black, allows the accompanying colors to be the star. This color combination can be used throughout the year but has a wintery undertone. Your wedding will leave people wanting more with this gorgeous color combo!

Plum and Grey:
Plum and grey is a color combination that is not seen very often which makes it trendy. This color combination is a bit against the norm but, will really set you apart from other weddings this winter. Many people think that having a holiday color scheme is the only way to make a wedding seasonally appropriate, but we say break down those walls! Have the colors that you want at your wedding and make your winter wedding dreams come true.Don’t forget to like, comment, and share! We would love to hear your feedback on your favorite winter wedding trends for this year!

CTE Loves Thompson Pictures

“In high school, I was one of the coolest kids around, and was part of an exclusive group called media tech. There were two types of people in there, the kids that just wanted an easy class, and the other ones that enjoyed making things, creating short films, etc. Fortunately, I connected most with the people that liked making stuff and the rest is history”Being from Texas, Trey decided to go to UT Arlington for school. When he was deciding his major, he had already been working in film production for several years so you would think that would be easy to continue. To challenge himself further, he decided to go into advertising with a minor in business.

Trey has not always been a videographer but he has always been interested in video production throughout his life, which made him choose a career in videography. The “aha” moment of becoming a videographer was more of a process found while working in the industry. “I’ve always enjoyed making things, being creative and problem solving. Working in video production uses all those areas, so it was a natural progression for me.”

Thompson Pictures is a company with bright, cinematic, smooth work. While capturing weddings, they think about how to be creative which can be difficult when not having the ability to direct your shots. “The cool thing about capturing weddings is there’s no second takes, so it’s just that much more rewarding when everything lines up to be an awesome moment.”

Trey’s favorite thing about videography is the moment that everything comes together as a finished product. Being able to show someone one of the most memorable days of their lives is something that Thompson Pictures strives to be the best at.

Videography is such an important part of a wedding because it captures everything a bride and groom may have missed. Trey’s advice to a bride and groom is to hire a videographer “More than 90% of brides who didn’t hire a videographer regretted it and it was their number one regret.” He also said that finding a videographer who works well with the photographer, so they are not competing with each other for a shot, is crucial. Also, make sure that your videographer has a good backup system, “Our philosophy at Thompson Pictures is multiple copies, versions and locations.”

The most challenging aspect to deal with as a videographer is that most of the day is out of their control. They need to be able to “adapt and preform under strict timelines and circumstances.” Trey says Thompson Pictures is not really work for him because “Enjoying what you do, doesn’t feel like work at all.” Getting positive feedback from clients’ or moving a client to tears when they see their wedding on the screen, is what makes everything worth it.

Thompson Pictures is a growing business that continues to train and invest in their team to deliver the highest quality films to their clients.

It’s always a pleasure working with the Thompson Pictures team. From the booking process to the delivery of their feature film, we know our clients are in good hands when choosing them as a videographer. Thank you for all you do Thompson Pictures!
