Winter weddings in New England are unfortunately somewhat of a rarity with the frigid temps and inclement weather leading to botched travel plans. LUCKILY, Kate and Bryan were not scared by this at all and totally embraced their elegant country wedding at Bittersweet Farm in Westport, MA.

We couldn't have asked for much more,...
