Inspiration Winter Wedding Shoot | Colorado Wedding Photographer

Why plan a winter wedding?

As a wedding vendor I know that the busiest months for marriage are May through September and you can be sure that couples book the vendors they want up to a year in advance.  Couples often miss out on the perfect venue or wedding photographer or even the most popular DJ because the summer months fill up so quickly.  So, why not plan a winter wedding?

Here are a few reasons you might want to consider holding off until the snow flies!

~ A winter wedding provides a magical feel of "winter wonderland"!

~  Guests schedules are less busy during the winter months because most people plan family vacations throughout the warmer season.  You are sure to see a lot more RSVP's from your guest list!

~  The snow and dreary backdrops are surprisingly beneficial when planning out your color scheme as they pretty much go with anything.  You can add as much contrast as you like without worrying about whether or not your wedding colors will clash with the freshly mowed green grass.

~  If you are a holiday fanatic then you have the option of planning for a Christmas or New Year's themed wedding

~   Most of all:  Winter weddings can be much lighter on the pocket book and your budget as most vendors offer discounts during the slower seasons!  (That's reason enough right there!)

Check out the video below to see what myself and the pros at I Do and Parties Too and The Bride and Bloom Design Company  can do to help you plan the perfect winter wedding!

 

Special thanks to all of the vendors that helped coordinate this beautiful inspiration shoot held in the mountains of gorgeous Colorado!

Wedding Planning and Design:  I Do and Parties Too

Floral Design:  Bride and Bloom Design Company

Wedding Gown:  Victoria Rose Bridal

Hair Design:  Blush Salon and Spa (Keeli Vanlandingham)

Makeup Design:  Kiss & Makeup by Marielle Michelle Fazzi

Cake:  Hello Sugar Cakery LLC

Venue:  Five Winds Ranch Weddings

And of course we couldn't forget our talented models - Marlin & Kuersten and Gipp!

Chevelle | Wedding Gown Dress Up | Grand Junction Colorado Wedding Photographer

What little girl wouldn't love the chance to play dress up in her mother's wedding gown?  The opportunity to put on a beautiful dress can make a girl feel like such a princess, and what a wonderful keepsake to give your daughter on her wedding day years down the road!

Chevelle and her mother came to my studio and put on her mother's dress.  The moments we captured over the next hour are priceless treasures.

This is a great alternative to a trash the dress session.  So, Brides, SAVE your wedding dress and perhaps one day you will have a daughter to play dress up with!
