Winter Weddings

Six Reasons Winter is the Perfect Wedding Season If you’re like most New England brides, you’re thinking of getting married in June. It’s the most popular month to be married, followed by August, September, and October. But why should summer and fall receive all the attention? There’s a lot to love about a winter wedding.

To make sure things run…
