Winter Wedding features already? Yes! I’m a winter baby so I’m just a little bit biased. Plus I know that so many of you are currently planning your very own winter wonderland wedding. The bride, Carlyn is a former ‘Miss Iowa’ 2014 and the groom, Patrick is an ex-NFL player. They tied the knot back in December 2019 at Company 251 in Aurora, IL.

Their December wedding followed a winter color scheme of forest green, black, white and pops of deep red. Their ceremony backdrop was a mini-forest of Christmas trees and lights! After Patrick’s outfit change (the white suit jacket was a must), they finished the night with the most winter classic dessert of all — milk + cookies.
