This Snowy Wedding Proves That Winter Is the Dreamiest Season
Heather Ash
by Heather Ash

Winter weddings have that elusive, magical air about them that simultaneously makes you want to have one while also being terrified of the all of the unknown that comes with the season. One couple from the Czech Republic decided to embrace this mysticism with their completely outdoor, remote wedding in the Sumava National Park with sleds and snow-shoes to boot. Winter white, blue and grey hues dominated the day while the bride wore a flower crown befitting a snow queen and a frosty-toned tulle skirt. Drinks were brought along to warm up their winter bones and the day culminated in a family-style, home-cooked meal.

We chatted with photographers Martin and Sue of Everbay for all the details of this wonderful white-out wedding. Read on for the full story and maybe get inspired to have a winter wedding of your own.

by Scout



Unique wedding venues make us swoon and this abandoned pool ceremony is taking the cake for out-of-the-box romance. This couple took the off-the-beaten path to marriage with a wedding ceremony that took place in the abandoned pool that sits in their backyard. Covered in vines with a tree growing through the middle, their vows were wrapped in a secret garden magic. 

The bride, Jessie, tells it all, from searching for the perfect venue for over one and a half years to making sure the wedding reflected their casual and eccentric aesthetic. After not only getting hitched in an abandoned pool but also purchasing this four-acre property settled right on the Cumberland River, this wedding sets a new precedent. This bride and groom prove that anything is possible.
