From the bride, Kristi:
We had a small, intimate ceremony with close friends and family. We opted for an abbreviated reception with appetizers and wine over the traditional reception dinner. Just enough time to thank everyone for coming, give and get hugs, and get warm wishes. Honestly this was WONDERFUL – we didn’t have the stress of hundreds of people and we got to spend time with the important people from each others lives.
I loved the winter setting. So many brides get married in the summer and have gorgeous lush green settings for the photos, but we had a winter wonderland to play with, and as a dedicated snow bunny, having that as part of our memories is pretty neat.
