5 Perfect Cozy Destinations for an Intimate Winter Wedding
December 14, 2017
I simply adore the winter time and for both the budget conscious and the adventurous couple, winter is a perfect time to get married. Since winter brings with it the offseason for weddings, it is often possible to find wonderful deals while planning your wedding. What's more, there are numerous gorgeous winter wedding destinations for snow lovers and thrill seekers alike.

I've searched high and low to curate a wonderful selection of the perfect cozy destinations for an intimate winter wedding!
Nestled in a log cabin lodge
I simply love the crisp brightness of winter sun! While I'm sure it makes a photographer's job a bit more challenging, I simply love the glow of winter sun reflecting off freshly fallen snowflakes. For the more rustically inclined, a welcoming log cabin lodge on the grounds of a ranch would make the perfect wedding reception location. The natural elegance of Winter Range Ranch in Bend, Oregon is undeniable and it has me itching to attend a wedding in the pacific northwest!
On the shores of Lake Louise
While Lake Louise is equally stunning in the warmer months, the snowy Canadian mountains framing this stunning valley in Alberta are the perfect backdrop for winter nuptials. Banff has truly become a hip tourist destination in recent years and there is no doubt why this little corner the world is so attractive. The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is the perfect upscale hotel to give you a charming and sophisticated wedding celebration in a cozy and rustic environment.
In a snowcapped Austrian village
What's more romantic and intimate than nestling together and saying your vows as fresh flakes settle all around you? An outdoor snowy wedding is not for the faint of heart, or for the adventure shy, but the sweet memories of a snow-laden ceremony are certain to wow.

Hotel Klosterbräu is a gorgeous venue, dating back to the 1500's, in the idyllic Austrian town of Tirol. The perfect historic getaway for your postcard-worthy winter wedding!
Overlooking the French Alps
From falling in love strolling along the Seine eating chocolate croissants to saying your nuptials overlooking the French Alps, The French truly have love down to a science! I would love to take a page from the French and say I do in style at Courchevel, a ski resort in the French Alps. For couples whose guests have a penchant for adventure, the French Alps are the perfect excuse for a vacation, adventure, and celebration all wrapped into one.
On an Aspen mountaintop
Colorado is certainly not lacking in quality ski towns. From Vail to Snowmass, Winter Park, and Aspen, there are copious amazing options to chose from. However, the charm and picturesque nature of Aspen never ceases to amaze me. The Chateau at Incline Village is a wonderful venue if you're up for high altitude wedding weekend.

So where would you pick for your perfect cozy winter wedding festivities? We would be remiss if we didn't add all these lovely locales to our never-ending must-visit list!
