It was near 70 degrees just two weeks ago and now we're buried in a foot and a half of snow with frigid temperatures! This white stuff is beautiful, though, and I kinda hate for it to melt away, as is predicted to occur in the next few days. I've been thinking about brides who might be getting married this time of year and the fabulous images a photographer could capture OUTSIDE in this winter wonderland. Yes, with some creative planning, outdoor wedding pictures would be beautiful. First, of course, dress for the occasion because freezing isn't fun! Wear under armour, long-johns, or sweats under your wedding dress or tux. Wool socks and snow boots will be hidden under a wedding dress, or choose some stylish boots that you can show off. How cool would it look for the bride and groom to be photographed on snowshoes! I can just imagine the bride wearing a vintage fur or faux-fur coat or cape, perhaps a colorful wrap, shawl, or bolero. How about fur mittens? Remember that real flowers won't like the cold but a bright silk arrangement would be beautiful. Mother nature provides the perfect backdrop for outdoor winter weddings. While evergreen trees are the obvious choice, bare branches offer a dramatic look. Winter days are short and maybe a small fire on the snow would be in order as the sun goes down. What beautiful images of the bride and groom warming themselves by firelight.
