Winter weddings can be such a romantic way to say “I do”. You have to snuggle to keep warm, and have those intimate giggles talking about your nose getting red while dreaming of your future together. Plus, there’s nothing quite as magical as bridal portraits with white blanketed backdrops like this. I truely enjoyed capturing Erin & Scott’s Sheboygan wedding, and wish them many years of happiness and joy.

From the Bride: The wedding party all got ready at the church and after the boys struggled with trying to figure out how to tie their bow ties everything went smoothly. We sang, got married, the deacon described our relationship perfectly and the ceremony was followed by a receiving line. Receiving lines are a bit old school, but we wanted to make sure that we saw and greeted everyone that came.
I carried a bouquet of white roses and a few other different varieties of white flowers. I asked our florist for an all white bouquet with some gold accents and she created the look with flowers that were in season at the time.
We got married at St. Peter Claver Church. This is the church that we belong to in town. The church is gorgeous and we just fell in love with the location and the deacon there.
The vision for our wedding was winter wonderland meets wedding. We wanted to incorporate the season, but still wanted to make it elegant because it was a wedding.
When we were taking pictures in the snow, I brought along boots to change into in case the snow was too heavy for my heels. I asked Jason, the photographer, when I should change into my boots. He said that he would let me know when. He never let me know. I traipsed through piles of snow for the perfect picture all while wearing my heels. The picture was most definitely worth the frozen toes and I ended up wearing my boots for the rest of the evening.
I think the best idea for our wedding was to have it in the winter. I always pictured a summer wedding, but when my husband threw out the idea of a winter wedding it just kind of stuck. Everyone figured that we chose a winter wedding for the cost reduction, which was definitely a positive, but that was not the reason. Winter is always such a cozy time of year, but can get a bit cold and dark. Almost all of our invitations were responded with a Yes RSVP since we were not in the busy wedding season and really had no competing events, we had the choice of vendors again since we were not married in peak wedding season, we now have something special to celebrate each winter just when we are getting a little stir crazy in the midst of the cold, and snow made for a gorgeous and unique backdrop to our wedding.
