Cherry Blossoms and cathedral lights – Cedar Lakes Estate winter wedding

As a teenager, winter camping played such an important role in my life, bonfire chats, s’mores, snow hikes, and cozy blankets. So you can only imagine the acute nostalgia I was overcome with at Lindsey and Nick’s Cedar Lakes Estate winter wedding. The weekend provided a perfect getaway in the mountains for their guest beginning with a welcome dinner and evening concert.

“Apart from being one of the most unbelievably beautiful places to get married, Cedar Lakes Estate has been the setting of many of my favorite memories from weekend getaways, birthday parties, New Year’s celebrations, and holiday markets. While summertime at Cedar Lakes certainly brings Dirty Dancing dreams to life with lake activities, zip-lining, and bonfires, there’s something undeniably magical about that crisp winter air and snow-covered cabins. Knowing the magic of wintertime at Cedar Lakes first hand, we took a leap of faith to be the first winter wedding for the venue, leaning into the cozy, elegant, mountain vibes for a winter wonderland wedding escape.” -Lindsay

Lindsay and Nick’s winter wedding was a beautiful winter affair which I had the honor of photographing at the end of last year. It was awe-inspiring to see the venue convert their winter ice rink into a cathedral of lights. In addition to this, the florist had an interesting take on the design, by using Cherry blossoms and Peonies in juxtaposition to the winter seasonal flowers, thereby creating a sort of spring bloom in the winter. And most importantly to ensure the safety of all, Amanda Savory and her design team had the idea to design hubs she called winters of Christmas, each hub had its own lounge, dance area, and dinner table.

It was a privilege to document Cedar Lakes Estate’s first winter wedding and I hope you enjoy these highlights from the wedding.
