How to Add Color and Greenery to Your Winter Wedding

 Cincinnati winter wedding

An unusually cold and snowy December in Cincinnati didn’t stop Mandy and Brad from having a gorgeous winter wedding, and we're so glad they did! Their big day came together with sparkly gold bridesmaid dresses, fur shawls, and a dreamy color palette of red, and blush. The end result? A totally stylish wedding that will warm your heart.

Fresh greenery really made their day feel chic, and they even incorporated a bit of Christmas-inspired decor throughout. It’s the perfect winter wedding y’all, so take notes! See it all below, and catch a closer look from Amanda Donaho Photography in the full gallery.

Mandy & Brad had a perfectly gorgeous (snowy!) Cincinnati Winter wedding. I was honored to be their wedding photographer after also photographing Mandy’s brother’s wedding a few years ago. It’s always such a joy to arrive on the wedding day to see familiar faces from families I’ve grown to love.

Snowy wedding in Cincinnati

Mandy was a stunning bride & is just as sweet as can be. It was an abnormally COLD even for a December Cincinnati wedding, but the bridal party rallied for a few outdoor photos & we were lucky enough to have the gorgeous Monastery Event Center as their wedding reception venue, so of course, we did some shooting in the (warmth!) there. I was overjoyed for them when during the exit from the church, the snow fell – heavily – and loved getting a quick snowy portrait of them under the glowing street lamps. Congrats to this beautiful couple!!
