Robert Frost Wedding Inspiration – A Christmas Bride

This holiday season, I decided to celebrate my love of Christmas by combining a few of my favorite things… weddings and poetry! A bit of a strange combo, I know! But I just could not resist.

I was inspired by one of the most beloved and nostalgic Christmas poems, “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost. I wanted to combine the mystery and magic of this time of year with some enchanting imagery that is festive, romantic, and slightly whimsical. Think of decadent cups of hot cocoa, flourishes of fresh mistletoe and ripe berries, and piles of downy white snow. And don’t forget the horse-drawn carriage!!

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;

He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near

Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.

The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,,
But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

bride and groom in winter wonderland wedding

And miles to go before I sleep.
