We often meet a lot of couples that are afraid to have their wedding in the winter. Due to the weather, the loss of light, their guests not being able to get to their venue because of the weather. However, there are a lot of positives of getting married in NYC and CT in the winter. Venues are not as booked as they are during peak times, so they will be more flexible with the timing of your big day; they also may offer discounts. Other vendors may also offer discounts as well because they are not booked either. Plus how awesome will your photos look in the snow!
Here are some of the awesome looks that we’ve come up with for winter weddings.
I absolutely loved working with Christine and Nick, they were such a fun couple from NYC. They wanted a rustic, yet elegant feel for their wedding day. When I first spoke with them they wanted to do a an all included reception and ceremony site and definitely wanted a rustic feel so I knew right away they would love the Webb Barn and boy did they ever. Even though they lived in NYC, planning went so smooth with the two of them. We knew right away that timing would be hard given their high-demanding jobs, so we gave easy timelines and banged out lots of planning during the summer/break times (because Christine is a teacher).
We had such fun colors to work with I loved everything about this wedding and this couple, they were so laid back and so much fun. All of our in-person and phone planning sessions lasted for hours. I am definitely going to miss working with them.
Here was their amazing color palette
Here are just a few photos that we managed to grab that day, professional photos coming soon.
