There are a few things that I love about winter. Cuddling next to a fire, warm drinks (mulled wine) and my new favorite, winter weddings. Being a wedding venue at a winery we don’t see many winter weddings but when we do, we always fall IN LOVE. This past December we were able to capture one of the most beautiful winter weddings I have ever seen. It looked like a wedding right out of a story book. The snowfall, the pine trees, and everything else in between was stunning. Our bride, Ashley, had wished for a real winter wedding with snowfall and lucky for her, she got exactly what she wished for. It was the kind of snow that every winter wedding needs. Take a look for yourself

Everything about this wedding was winter perfection!

Did I mention cozy fires? Take a look at Ashley in the bridal suite sitting next to the beautiful granite fireplace.

Most couples steer away from winter weddings for reasons like the cold, the scenery, and a big one – the chance of bad weather. Fortunately at the vineyard, the venue is warm, the scenery is always stunning and we always plow our property!

Ashley and Matt hit the jackpot with their winter wedding. They incorporated everything winter like pine trees, fur coats, and warm drinks for their wedding. There is so much you can do for a winter wedding that you couldn’t do for a spring or summer wedding – like Mulled WINE!!

These photos are only a few of our favorites of Ashley & Matt’s Winter Wedding!

From an indoor first look on our spiral staircase to the indoor ceremony with the beautiful snow falling in the background. This really was a storybook wedding.
