When someone says the word wedding, usually the months of spring, summer, and fall quickly pop into everyone's head. But there's just something completely magical about the winter white wonderland that takes place during winter weddings: Outdoor fire pits, indoor cozy spaces, warm drinks, shawls and blankets just to name a few aspects. Add in some actual snowfall — and well, game over — it's safe to say winter weddings are quickly becoming our favorite.
To prove it, we're sharing our some totally adorable snowy photos from Instagram that prove winter weddings are everything.
Every bride wants a photo like this, but when you add snowflakes to the portrait, nothing compares. This beautiful shot was captured in Philly last weekend, during the first snowfall of the new year.

The bride's something blue? The tint of the scenery from the impending snowstorm (but seriously, doesn't the snow atop the umbrella look like glitter?). When in doubt (and worried about the weather), bring an umbrella and a shawl, but make sure it goes with your color scheme.
