My Fiance told me he would like to get married “in the snow”. I told him I’m not super thrilled about the idea, and he is willing to compromise getting married somewhere else and having our honeymoon “in the snow”. But I still want to scout for snowy places/venues to see if I find anything we both love.
Did any of you get married in a snowy place? If so, I’d love to hear about your venue and maybe see a picture or two.
The city doesn’t really matter, since we are willing to do destination as well.
Thanks in advance for your help!

I had a winter wedding! Not in the mountains but it was still very snowy. I wanted a cozy atmosphere with candlelight and fireplaces. We had a hot chocolate bar and got married in an old manor that had been converted into a hotel and restaurant. We didn’t have the ceremony outside but did photos outside.

I’m having a winter wedding and am hoping for some light snow. Not enough to make a mess of travel, but enough to get those beautiful snowy pictures! I love love love winter weddings.

I’ve attended a handful of weddings in the mountains, a couple with snow- you really need to carefully plan out the venue and inform guests. One wedding had us hiking up a hill in the snow for the ceremony, ruining my shoes and it was so cold! Another one was at a fancy ski resort and would have been nice but an older woman slipped and got hurt.

We did! We got married in an outdoor ceremony in the Rockies in January, at a golf course. It is definitely doable. You have to know your audience (we’re Canadian, and my family thought it was quirky but fun. My husband’s American relatives, who all came and ultimately loved it, thought we were crazy), have an indoor backup plan and a hard cutoff temperature at which you will go inside.
I’m happy to tell you about the logistics, if you guys get serious!
First look and ceremony photos, to give you an idea.

I had a winter mountain wedding! I loved every part about it. We did pictures outside but got married inside in front of a big fireplace. I loved how it got dark early and our reception was all candlelit. It was so romantic! Plus we go great deals from our vendors because it was off-season. 🙂
I did a recap if you’re interested here: https://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/our-1-5-18-mountain-wedding-recap-pic-heavy/

Six days! I remember her first post asking for opinions and she got so much good advice. I was so stoked when I seen that it all worked out for her lol.

We got married in November at Emerald Lake Lodge in Emerald Lake, BC. It was where DH took me for our first weekend away when we started dating and we go back every year, so it’s a special place for us and we knew it was exactly where we wanted to get married!
We are Canadian and used to plenty of snow, but we still did the ceremony indoors, though we did take photos outside since the setting is so beautiful.

That is an amazing picture, love the colors in it! Thanks for sharing, bee.
wow, that’s awesome. I wish I had the courage to do what she did lol
I hope you get your beautiful snow, I bet it would make for wonderful pictures.
I think the “being cold” part of it is what makes me nervous. A wedding is too expensive to have everyone being miserable because they are cold.
Your pictures are amazeballs. I will certainly reach out to you if we go for something like this. I appreciate it, thanks!

That sounds like a logistics nightmare, but it bet she does have the pictures of a lifetime!
Your wedding looks amazing, thanks for sharing! You look stunning, and so happy!
Super cool pics. I love the pop of color from his tie! I love that when you have such a nice nature background you hardly need any decorations lol

If you move forward with this I would not suggest doing the ceremony outside. Take as many pics outside as you want, but please dont force it on your guests. I’m canadian and love snow, and even I would be seething if I had to sit outside for an hour waiting because a bride wanted the ceremony outdoors. Of course no one is going to talk shit to the bride about how awful a plan that is.
