WATCH: A Classic Winter Wedding at the Plaza Hotel

Real Weddings

It's not even summer yet, but we're already dreaming of winter (okay, only sometimes). Namely, those glamorous winter weddings with a snow-inspired color palette — after all, what's prettier than an all-white bash? It's classic, formal, and oh-so-chic, and totally in keeping with the look of a timeless venue like New York City's Plaza Hotel. So when Kayla and Eli started planning winter "I dos," it should come as little surprise that they got inspired by the season for their décor. Each week we've taken you inside one of our favorite love stories featured on our real weddings video channel, and today's cool-weather vows will have you skipping seasons straight into December.

Roey Yadgar Films documented every special moment of this couple's pretty celebration, starting with Kayla's morning spent getting ready in a suite with a front row view to New York City's skyline. Her bridal look was perfect for a classic bash, complete with a hint of sparkle. She stunned in lace ball gown, long veil, and carried a traditional bouquet of white calla lilies.

We particularly love how both the ceremony and reception was inspired by the season. An altar covered in fluffy white blooms felt reminiscent of a fresh snowfall while chandeliers offered a twinkling glow to the space. And the reception took notes from the season, too! Tall white orchid centerpieces were finished with glittering table details, lending a sense of glamour to the ornate space.

Despite the chilly weather, the couple took advantage of the outdoors for photos, heading out into the city streets between the big events. They even took a spin in a horse and carriage &mdash totally cute!
