Kristofor and Simone’s Romantic Winter Wedding

Kristofor and Simone said “I Do” on the the last day of winter at Early Mountain Vineyards. With a joint love of the mountains, winter season and skiing, the winery proved to be the perfect fit for their celebration. The couple created a romantic ambiance by incorporating rich burgundy and gold colors throughout their wedding. Personal touches were woven throughout, including when the flower girl threw snow rather than flower petals and the florist incorporated antique skis collected by the couple into the ceremony arbor.

In addition to the beautiful aesthetic, the couple created an intimate setting by writing a personal letter to each guest and serving a family-style dinner so they could connect over a delicious meal.
