A Winter Wedding In Maine // Styled Shoot // New England Outdoor Center // Winter Bride

The idea of a winter wedding in the state of Maine may leave your mind as quickly as it visited it. BRRRRR! The rumors of cold temperatures and snow filled roadways steer many couples away from the thought. Brides with Maine roots often think a winter wonderland wedding is out of their reach and have difficulty dreaming of the possibilities. Are you a bride or groom trying to decide on a wedding date? Don’t write off the winter months because they can be cold and dark or because of your fear of the dreaded snowstorm. Winter weddings are so pretty and there are plenty of vendors who are ready to make the impossible possible.

The snow and cold can always make things a little difficult, but winter is one of the most beautiful seasons Maine has to offer. Maine winters are absolutely magical and create some the most dreamy backdrops for your wedding day. Fortunately, there are many venues ready to solve some of those winter wedding problems one may face. Have you heard of the New England Outdoor Center? Located in the heart of Maine’s beauty, NEOC sits on a beautiful lake with million dollar views. The gorgeous main building and restaurant are surrounded by cabins with waterfront access and a view of Mount Katahdin. This venue provides your guests the option to turn their weekend trip for a wedding into a week filled with winter fun . Your guests will appreciate the convenience of celebrating and lodging in the same place. It’s an even better location for those who are looking for a destination wedding without tropical vibes or sandy beaches. Booking with this venue will take some of the stress out of the preparation for the most magical day of your life.

Some consider Maine winters to be drab and too difficult to dress up. Blankets of snow cover most of the landscape and many of the trees are bare. People tend to think the lack of color means their day won’t be as beautiful or charming. I am here to tell you those thoughts are not always accurate. Winter weddings in Maine are so magical. The winter sun shines through Maine’s pine trees, creating a natural sparkle seen across the state’s frozen lakes. Whimsical floral arrangements can dress each couple with color and texture. Soft features of a wedding dress and tuxedo will reflect a romantic mood when paired with the soft sunlight. Hiring the right vendors who know exactly how to bring your winter wedding vision to life is so important. If you take the time to scroll through the images from this styled shoot, you will see that the snow adds to the beauty of a wedding day. Each picture is covered in romantic moods and glistening light. It couldn’t be a more perfect glimpse into a winter wedding day in Maine.
