I’m a midwest girl who grew up with changing seasons, and I truly love what each one has to offer. But after two years of living in Grand Cayman, this Cincinnati winter has been a bit of a reality shock. Then pictures like these come along and remind me just how beautiful this season can be.
Winter has a bad reputation of being dreary, causing depressing, and just generally over-staying its welcome. But man, when that perfect white snow falls and those happy strands of lights twinkle, something truly magical happens.
I actually had a winter wedding myself, and was blessed with probably the warmest, sunniest December 15th Cincinnati can remember. If I could have picked any season, I most likely would have done a fall wedding, but winter is what we ended up with. And it was awesome. Venues were already dressed up for the holidays, so we spent very little on flowers or decorations. The colors of the season – gold, ivory, champagne, silver, and glitter – give your day a natural air of sophistication and elegance.
Winter is generally considered “off-season” for weddings so photographers, venues, and contractors might offer lower rates to fill their calendar. Plus, as a final bonus, family and friends will all cast an envious eye as you whisk away to a sun-filled honeymoon! You can’t beat that!
