WATCH: We Can't Get Enough of This Couple's Dreamy Winter Wedding in Virginia

Real Weddings

Summer might be coming to a close, but that doesn't mean wedding planning is over — especially for those couples hosting winter nuptials! Before you head out to meet with your planner, consult with your florist, or even search endless racks of beautiful wedding dresses for "the one" this weekend, it's important you take some time to figure out what you want your wedding day to look like. After months of seeing nothing but bright summer weddings, winter brides are in for a treat: Our real wedding video channel, which is filled with tons of beautiful love stories from couples across the country and abroad, has incredible inspiration for every season. Each week we've been spotlighting our favorite new love story, and today's couple, Laura and Avery, hosted one of the most perfect winter weddings we've ever seen.

The pair asked East West Productions to capture their late December wedding at Virginia's beloved Pippin Hill Farm, and the finished product is every winter-loving bride's dream. Although there's no snow on the ground, these super sweet nuptials breathe winter spirit thanks to carefully selected seasonal details. If you're the type of bride that cringes at the idea of a late winter wedding, trust us, this rustic bash will completely change your mind. The trick to pulling off a winter wedding that feels like the season and not like a holiday party is to choose the right décor elements. For Laura and Avery, that was twinkling candlelight, plenty of greenery, and subtle sparkle.

One of the biggest wow moments at this wedding? Their incredibly decorated ceremony space. Pippin Hill's barn was done up with glowing candles and café lights, swags of evergreen and pinecones along the aisle, and a stunning seasonal-inspired altar of greenery. To stand out against her winter-white décor, the bride chose a soft blush-hued wedding dress.

If this couple's vows leave you in tears, you'll be pleased to know that there's lots of love and fun during their reception. With every guest out on the dance floor, lots of cheering, and an incredible multi-tiered wedding cake, this wedding shows brides that you can truly throw a great party... whatever season you're tying the knot in!
