On The Snowy Pond | Inspiration

Snowy Pond Winter Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

The weather is finally turning cold and the snow is on it's way to cover the Vermont countryside in a peaceful blanket of white. It's time to cuddle up by the fire with a chunky, knit blanket and a warm cup of cocoa and dream about summer. The time between Christmas and Valentine's Day is also affectionately known as "Engagement Season" - full of romantic proclamations of love and the exciting beginning of life's next chapter. More engagements occur during these two months then at any other point of the year. Funny how the coldest part of the year holds the most warmth for the heart.

We thought it appropriate to share a little sneak peak of one of the features in the Vermont Bride Winter/Spring issue, now available for purchase. It features a serene, snowy pond and a cozy, rustic lodge adorned with winter's finest greenery and some pops of yellow and red to brighten the mood. Candles, hot cocoa, and tasty pastries warm everything up and it's the perfect time to break out the scarves and shawls. And maybe a pair of ice skates, too!

Even though winter is not commonly thought of as a wedding season, in Vermont we have a love affair with the beauty and serenity of a snow-covered landscape, icy lakes, and stark white mountains. Of course with four (or more) months of it we kind of have to make the best of our circumstances, right? But put together the plaid blankets, rich, chocolate treats, a crackling fire, and the snow falling softly outside - you simply can't get any more romantic than that.
