Winter Wedding Crasher

If the polar vortex threatens to be a bigger bridezilla than you, then just roll with it.  Choosing to get married during the winter months is always a gamble, but it doesn’t mean you can’t be prepared.  Take newlyweds Kerri and Spencer’s gorgeous Colorado nuptials for example.  Fifteen degree weather didn’t stop them from enjoying a stunning outdoor ceremony… in fact, it produced one of the most gorgeous wedding atmospheres we’ve ever seen.  So, don’t let snowflakes bring down your event plans.  Just roll with the icy punches and take advantage of your winter wonderland.   Photography:  Brinton Studios Event …
