A Cozy Winter Wedding at FortWhyte Alive

Romantic winter nuptials are definitely #trending, and for good reason. We love winter colour palettes, florals and décor, and the unique opportunity to include memorable details such as sleigh rides, roaring bonfires and a s'mores station.

Romantic outdoor (or indoor) ceremony? Check. The perfect lighting for photos of your besties, elegant and warm in their matching fur shawls? Check. Winter bouquets, eucalyptus garlands and white aspen trees to frame your couple portraits? Absolutely.

Winter weddings provide an approach to the modern wedding that is traditional enough that your grandmother will boast about it to her friends, but unique enough that your trendy cousin will nod appreciatively in your direction during the reception.

Did we mention how convenient it is to book vendors including photographers, florists and other in-demand vendors in the off-peak season?

"Our winter wonderland-themed wedding was made magical at FortWhyte. From the gorgeous ceremony setting, to winter forest photos, to tobogganing, and the s'mores over the bonfire - everyone had an amazing evening."

- Dawn Fraser, winter bride at FortWhyte Alive
