Wed Talk with Mariah – The Winter Wedding

The fire is warm, the snow is falling gently outside the window, and you are standing with your other half about to dedicate your lives to each other in front of the fireplace. Or, maybe you are standing outside under the gently falling snow wrapped in a fuzzy, warm shawl while reciting those vows.

Sound appealing? We think so, too. The Keweenaw Mountain Lodge is exploring a new idea…winter weddings! If you think that the Brockway Mountain backdrop is beautiful in the summer, the snow-capped ridge in the winter is another level of wilderness beauty.

A winter wedding in the Keweenaw stands out. You may attend two or three weddings throughout the summer and fall, but that winter wedding…that is the wedding you will remember. 

Let’s consider some other appealing points:

  • Vendor availability could be wide open. In fact, you might be the center of their attention!  78% of weddings in the United States take place between the months of May and October. Instead of you wrestling for space on the calendar, the vendors may be fighting over you! Maybe the health situation in the world this year meant you had to reschedule your date and now you can’t find vendors with any availability later in the year. Think winter!
  • Speaking of wrestling, imagine tentatively picking a summer date, and then immediately starting to worry about that weather forecast? Instead of wrestling the elements and dreading that soaking downpour, a snowfall in the winter will only leave you with wonderful photo opportunities. Not worries about being drenched in rain . Or, stay inside and get married. That cozy fireplace scene could be your backdrop.
  • Those photo opportunities though! The colors of your flowers and bridesmaid dresses will pop against the white snowy backdrop. And let’s face it, you know you want to throw a snowball at your new spouse. Now you can blame it on the photo op!

Bottom line, should a winter wedding at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge be in the cards? We are working to figure out if we shouldn’t rule out that November through April wedding. It could be the unique, fun, joyous, and adventurous start to a great marriage!
