It might just be I’m a Florida girl and rarely see it, but there is something so magical about snow. And this gorgeous New York winter wedding does nothing but prove it! I am seriously head over heels for the bride’s winter look and the beautiful portraits that were captured! Everything is just too lovely for words.

The stunning Laura gives us the details:

Just four months prior to our wedding day, our plan was to have a destination wedding in the spring, somewhere warm.  We took a small detour from that plan and decided to instead get married on New Year’s Eve in New York City.  Warm?  No.  Gorgeous and festive?  Yes.

We were met with over a foot of snow (a blizzard!) just a few days before our wedding, and our location — the Boathouse in Prospect Park — was still unplowed just one day before.  But somehow we stayed calm, did what we could, and considered the snow a blessing as we ended up with the most beautiful backdrop for our wedding and, of course, the photos.

As for the party, we danced from right after the ceremony until the clock struck twelve, and then we danced some more after that.  There were fireworks at midnight, and while they were for the entire borough of Brooklyn, we all felt like they were just for us.  It was a really magical night.

    What a gorgeous wedding. I just love seeing a bride and groom in the snow - always makes for the best photos. The venue, outside and in - looks stunning.

    I completely agree--snow makes such gorgeous photos. The crispness of the white in the background playing off the white of the dress... swoooon. Plus, it's just plain romantic. I really hope winter weddings increase in popularity in the coming years!

    The bride looks wonderful in her winter wrap! And the snowy photos (though surely chilly!) are warmed up by this lovely couple's smiles!
