Anyone that talks with us knows how much we love to photograph during the winter. The quality of light, the bare branches, the way a couple cozies up for warmth—–oh we just adore it all!
Recently, in the small town of Rapid River, located in the heart of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, a group of professional wedding vendors joined together to create a gorgeous outdoor winter styled wedding. We wanted to showcase how wonderful winter weddings can be! The private residence not only provided a stunning forest backdrop, but also an icy view of Lake Michigan. Knots & Kisses created a rustic, simple setting that showcased the true beauty of nature during the winter months. Their tablescapes adorned with moss, deer antlers, and candles added the perfect touch to the already gorgeous setting. The Bride stepped out in an elegant off the shoulder gown from A Bride’s Choice with diamond snowflake jewelry from Wood Jewelers. Her romantic styled hair paired with the simplicity of her makeup, both done by Jessica Mariin, made her stand out from the sparkling snow. Her Groom looking handsome, was dressed perfectly for a winter wedding with a suit also from A Bride’s Choice. The couple enjoyed a day filled with laughter, hot coco, chai vanilla cupcakes from Superior Treats, and so much more. The romantic bouquet, centerpieces, and boutonniere were artistically created by Forsberg Floral. The couple really embraced the cold winter wind by snuggling up and sipping hot coco while we photographed the day away. After a full day of enjoying this gorgeous winter wedding we hope to inspire more couples to take a chance and plan their very own winter wedding wonderland, because even though it may be cold they have the warmth of their love to keep them warm.
