So Champ has been pretty “whatever” about the whole wedding planning process, but when it came to our first wedding day meeting he was adamant that we wait until the ceremony to see each other. I’ve seen several different opinions on this subject, and I was willing to go either way. On one hand, we could get some wonderful photo opportunities if we met before the wedding, but on the other hand I know Champ really loves the element of surprise and this would be no exception.
Unfortunately most of the inspirational photos I’ve collected along the way have been taken during the daytime and our wedding ceremony doesn’t even start until after 6. Luckily, my cousin who is also a BM has spent some time as a wedding photographer, and she happens to be the one who took our STD photo at my brother’s wedding. So Champ and I have decided that instead of jetting out right away for our honeymoon (location unbeknownst to me until departure!) we’ll stick around for some photos with the best natural backdrop we could ask for… the Rocky Mountains!
Because we’ll have the time to experiment with our surroundings, I’ve collected some of my favorite winter wedding photos for inspiration. Have any to add? Please share!

Remember this photo? We’ll definitely be making snow angels!
Did you have a day-after photo session, or did you meet before your wedding?
