As the winter months come and go, color changes in the sky, and the smell of pine and fireplaces capture our hearts. It is easy to fall in love with the winter season for its magic, its charm, and its warmth despite the cold. We know this is why so many couples choose to get married in wintertime.

Choosing to get married in the winter opens up many options for venues and vendors.  Since summer is the busiest wedding season, it can be much easier to secure the venue and vendors you want in the winter season. Today we look at a few New York venues that truly shine in the winter months, and  bring out the festivity and wonder of every winter bride’s dreams.  Winter in New York is cherished around the world, and there’s no denying a certain magic in the air when walking through the city in the coldest months of the year. And not only is New York beautiful on the outside, but also on the inside.  These venues welcome you in from the cold and into the perfect space to build your winter wonderland.

Berries & Branches: Bringing the Outside In

Incorporating berries, branches, and greenery into winter celebrations may be one of the oldest decorating traditions, harking back to Pagan winter solstice rituals that even pre-date Christmas. Living in the city, it’s easy to forget the wide range of plants that truly shine in the winter months.  We’ve compiled a list of some popular options for brides looking to bring the spirit of the solstice to their wedding celebration and ceremony with all the beautiful shapes, colors, and textures winter flora has to offer.

Ilex berries, or winter berries, come from a type of holly native to the Northeast. When the shrub sheds its leaves in late fall, vibrant red berries are revealed along its stem. These clusters of bright spheres have long been associated with winter festivities, and incorporating ilex berries into your winter wedding is a perfect way to invoke the holiday spirit and create a warm, traditional ambiance.

When we think of winter wedding flowers, we often jump to an all-white color scheme, while in fact there is a wide range of flowers in many colors available in winter to suit any floral design vision.  Amaryllis, Anemones, Orchids, Hydrangeas, and Peonies are some of the most popular winter blooms, as well as many varieties of Roses.

Even if you’re committed to an all-white winter wedding, mixing and matching shades of white can make for a stunning array of tones, textures and shapes, from antique ivories to soft creams to classic white-as-snow.  Silvery accents of Dusty Miller or Silver Brunia make for beautiful finishes for a monochrome winter wonderland look.

Quintessential Manhattan Wedding: Central Park & 21 Club

Central-Park_Bride-and-Flowergirl

A ceremony in snowy Central Park, followed by a sophisticated reception at the fabled 21 Club, made for a timeless Manhattan wedding, straight out of a classic movie. Landmark New York City venues add a sense of history and tradition which perfectly suited this beautiful bride’s tastes.

The bride envisioned classic, elegant flowers for her white winter wedding. We created her bridal bouquet with off-white garden roses and white phalaenopsis orchids, then wrapped the stems in satin ribbon and finished with a glamorous crystal brooch. Isn’t the above photo of the bride and her adorable flower-girl daughter with their bouquets just exquisite? The magical hush of Central Park in the snow was perfectly captured and you can see what a special moment this must have been. And our bride was a brave girl– that last day of January was one of the winter’s coldest days. She doesn’t even look like she noticed!
