"Listen to the wind, it speaks. Listen to the silence, it talks. Listen to your heart, it knows." -Native American Proverb

I’ve been seeing and hearing many complaints over this massive heat wave covering the majority of the US. You’re right, it’s really hot and not only hot but humid and those two combined are not so desirable by most of us. When you feel tired and disgusted with this heat, let us remind you of another season, just around the corner. Winter. Yes, winter will be here before we know it. I for one (Melissa here, speaking for herself) love winter. I do not necessarily love freezing temperatures or ice or the lack of greenery, but what I do love is snow. Snow has made me a winter wedding fanatic. I’m always hoping for snow on our winter weddings. My prayers were answered this past January when we were hit with record breaking snowfall and winter storm “Jonas”. Just for the record, I never pray for this much snow. Just a thin fresh coat, that’s all I ask for. This storm brought way more than I’ve ever asked for. It brought 20+ inches (some places reaching 40 inches of snow). What made this storm difficult to work with was the powerful winds it brought with it.

Given the situation that was ahead of us, we asked our couple for two things. We asked them to trust us and to have an open mind. We knew this wasn’t what they had envisioned for their winter wedding. I’m sure they thought maybe there would be snow on the ground, but never imagined a blizzard that resulted in some vendors and guests simply not being able to make it due to dangerous travel conditions. There are a lot of things you can plan for on your wedding day but one thing you can never control is nature. When you are faced with rain, hurricane, blizzard, hail storm, typhoon, sandstorm, etc. you either allow it to bring devastation and frustration to your day or you accept it allowing it to make your day an even more interesting story.

We will remember this day forever. Going into this day, we knew it would be magical and just the thought of that had us feeling excited and inspired. This wedding will always be one of our favorites simply because of Allison & Juan’s attitude and perspective. They trusted us completely. Endured 45 minutes of freezing temperatures, falling snow, and 60-80 mph winds. Mega shout out to Gina Kay from True Beauty Marks for blizzard proof hair and makeup!

Enjoy this beautiful blizzard wedding! Maybe this will cool you off today or maybe it will have you accepting and appreciating the heat. Either way, enjoy.

PS. Winter couples…we still have openings this winter 😉 xoxo

Winter wedding

Blizzard wedding

^^ A huge gust of wind happened here. That gust of wind gave us our most favorite photo but also was the breaking point. We couldn’t feel our faces anymore.
