There is something so simplistically beautiful about a winter wedding. Maybe it’s the white backdrop, the simple color palettes, or the fact that so few brides are brave enough to plan a winter wedding. But, at the heart of a winter wedding, you can always see the warmth, the love.

Thanks to Autumn Burke for sharing this beautiful Vail wedding. Complete with a snowy ceremony.

Not all wedding gowns have to be long. Or princess-poofy for that matter.

A nod to the vintage. And, a splash of color.

Let me just say, I was pretty excited when Karin from Starry Eyed Studios wanted to share this wedding with me.  Not only are the photos beautiful, and the details thought-through, but it is a New Year’s Eve wedding. I have a big soft-spot for well-executed New Year’s Eve weddings, and this one hits the nail on the head.  Not to mention the couple, Rainy and Nick, is absolutely gorgeous and managed to be blessed with 70-degree weather on New Year’s Eve. That almost never happens (considering it is typically 20-30 degrees on NYE).

Jessie sent me this snowy engagement session with such an adorable couple, Rachel and Robert. The photos were taken at the North Pond in Lincoln Park in Chicago, and the added touch of the snow just make this session dreamy and sweet.

Simple and pretty. Sometimes that’s all you need with a wedding shoe.

Perfection. And, their owner is the creative mind behind this fun detail.
