    Amazing suggestions!!! I just got back from Tahoe - there's something incredibly romantic about the mountains and fresh air!

      I actually considered "snowy" wedding. My FH and I do ski, so I was picturing something in Alps - France or Austria. The ceremony at the peak with amazing view and then something cozy in the evening with the fireplace (or fire outside!) for the reception. There were several show stoppers for me though:

      - the cold - I am a sun loving being and I feel more comfortable at +35C than at -35C. Of course you'd rarely have a really cold weather in the Alps, but still I prefer warm beach to winter mountains.

      - the dress - that partially comes from the cold. I just don't see myself in (any) wedding dress in winter. I don't even wear causal skirts in winter, and wool sweaters are my best friends in cold weather, so to compromise a nice wedding dress for an astonishing view wasn't in my plans.

      - the price - clearly Alps are more expensive than many southern destinations.

       

      Maybe we should consider it for the vows renewal? ;)

      I want to do most of these things just for fun on vacation! Always wanted to go to an ice hotel and on an Alaskan cruise, and now I have to go on an alpine slide or my life won't be complete! Haha.

        Great article, Alexis! 

         

        One other location that pops to my mind in addition to the ones that you suggested is the Ahwanee Hotel in Yosemite. I've never stayed there, but I've stopped there many times over the years to eat lunch, grab a drink or shop at their amazing hotel store. I heard it's also a popular wedding spot - for the summer time, they have a wedding lawn in the back of the hotel. There's also a super small wooden chapel in Yosemite Valley, very close to the hotel, where you can officiate the wedding. I'm doing a lot of free advertising for this place, but I'm seriously in love with it. It has so much character, the architecture is absolutely stunning and it's also super charming and romantic. I've honestly considered getting married there. In winter time, it gets even more magical, as it's surrounded by towering peaks covered in snow. Here are some photos:
