The Winter Wedding

There is no denying that every season in the Pacific Northwest is beautiful. Each equipped with its own array of colors and shades. Excitement shifts between sporting events and outdoor activities and things to wear and see and eat and do. People tend to get down on winter around here when the grey rolls in and the days shorten and I can sympathize. But I also think there is magic in the winter. The winter sun, at times, feels brighter and warmer reflected off the snow than it does on the hottest summer day. This post is a shout out to the couples that say “hell no” to summer weddings packed with peonies and do something a little bit different. Last year we had several winter weddings and here are some fun tidbits we learned from those couples.

The first problem people have with winter weddings is obvious, it’s cold. Yes, this can be a hindrance. OR you can take this as an accessorizing opportunity like Bailey in her amazing fur coat, or Monica and her maids in their seasonal plaid scarves. 

But what if the holidays steal my thunder?!?! You can confront this head on like Bailey did and have a fantastical winter soiree on New Year’s Eve. Or host a warm, formal, romantic affair a few weeks before Christmas like Monica. The truth is, everyone you know wants to put on a sparkly dress and go to a party this time of year. A wedding is the ultimate party. Embrace the winter season and make the holidays even more memorable.

Just because you get married in the winter doesn’t mean you must have holiday colors. You still have every opportunity to make it your own. If anything, it allows you to be MORE creative. I had SO much fun with both of these weddings and got to work with all my favorite girls at Perfectly Posh Events while doing so. Please check out more photos from these two great weddings below.
