The ski resort may have just closed for the season, but it is not too late to reflect back on an incredible spring ski wedding! With the help of Mother Nature, who delivered a spectacular Utah blue bird sky day, Jessi and Nick were able to exchange their vows on the mountain, outdoors in March. For those brides looking to plan an outdoor winter wedding ceremony, there is a lot to consider, but I will always recommend waiting until March or April when the days are a lot longer and the temperatures tend to be much more comfortable. By doing just this, Jessi and Nick were able to capture a truly gorgeous day.
The couple chose a cozy and rustic, but still modern theme for the event. Bridesmaids selected their own dresses in several shades of blue, and wore matching sand colored peacoats with muffs. Table top decorations included tons of candles and simple single stem arrangements. The bride’s bouquet was constructed with white blooms and blue accents and she was also draped in a fur wrap.
