    A Late-Night Treat

    When the weather outside is frightful, there's even more reason to keep guests dancing till dawn. At Alden and Steve's wintry Whistler, British Columbia, wedding, donuts and spiked coffee provided a sugary, caffeinated boost for the "last dance" set.

    Vows with a Snowy View

    It may be too chilly to hold a ceremony outdoors in the dead of winter, but inventive bride and groom Alden and Steve didn't let the pristine landscape in British Columbia go to waste: A wall of windows provided a view of the snowy forest and mountains as they exchanged vows. Small glass vases filled with tulips and hanging votive candles gave the ceremony venue a soft glow at twilight.
