Good Thing They Had Their Love to Keep Them Warm

Imagine you live in Philadelphia. Imagine you’re getting married. Imagine you intend to marry out of doors. What time of year would you choose for your ceremony?

Well, if you’re Blair Kahora and Matt Cardinal, you choose December 19.

You read that correctly, they chose December 19 for their outdoor wedding at Headhouse Square open air market. They even went ahead with their plans despite the fact that more than twenty inches of snow fell that day.

The makeup artist decided to bow out of the proceedings, but Matt and his groomsmen jumped into the fray and called to confirm all the other vendors.

Guests were told that formal clothing was optional. Most of them chose to show up, though the dress code rapidly turned into sweatpants rather than party dresses. As for the bride and her bridesmaids, they gave a nod to the weather by wearing Uggs and pashmina wraps.

After the ceremony, the happy couple stayed outdoors to get some pictures.

Me? I wouldn’t do it. After all, part of the reason I live in California is that I don’t want to deal with snow. For them, however, it seemed to work. Best of luck, Blair and Matt. And keep warm if you can.

    We didn’t plan a blizzard for our wedding day last month, but one happened anyway. So we just went with it. And the pictures we got with the snow were absolutely beautiful. If you’re not so uptight with the fact that you can’t control the weather, snow can make for some gorgeous photos.

    I don’t think one need necessarily be UPTIGHT to think about the weather, however – nor to plan for it. Planning for the possibility of snow, and at least the probability of cold, for December in Philadelphia, wouldn’t make one uptight. And I think it would have been possible for the bride and her maids to have had more than pashmina wraps and boots, with planning.

    Because that was some snowstorm, it really was.

  3. This is so beautiful. It looks like a 1930’s picture. Doesn’t it?

    Seems like a good way to filter out the people who don’t absolutely want to come to your wedding lol.
