The Romantic Appeal of a Winter Wedding

June 23, 2016

Congratulations to Katie and Corey on Their Big Day!

Is there really a more perfect color combination than grey and white? It seems that no matter the time of year a couple weds, this color duet always looks magnificent, especially in the winter at The Green Valley Chateau! Using the holidays (naturally!) to create an unique reception atmosphere, Katie and Corey’s beautiful winter wedding was nothing short of magical. The sun was shining brightly and the weather was absolutely perfect for their winter affair. We want to congratulate Katie and Corey again on their wonderful winter wedding with us and we can’t say “thank you” enough for choosing ViVA Catering!

We are so thrilled to share Katie and Corey’s beautiful photos of their special day in our Chateau!

The Bridal Party

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The happy couple enjoyed taking photos of the best moment of their lives outside under the bright and beautiful sunshine. Later on, Katie made an enchanting entrance at the start of her candlelit ceremony, walking to her groom through rows of rose petals. Following their vows, Katie and Corey shared their first kiss as husband and wife and then the newly-wed couple joined their guests with tons of joy and happiness.

The Chateau’s Grand Ballroom created a unique reception space for the bride and groom with chalkboard snowflake signs announcing them as the very new Mr. and Mrs.! Classic lighting hung overhead and throughout the entire Ballroom to add more touches of warmth along with beautiful holiday wreaths. Tables were dressed with dark blue linens, pink napkins, candles, and winter decorations. Champagne was poured, great food was served, and Katie and Corey were glowing with bright smiles all day long!

Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you can’t have a fabulous winter wedding inside! Katie and Corey’s wedding was awesome, just like them!
