When you鈥檙e facing the blizzard of the year, most people lock the doors, queue up Netflix and don鈥檛 leave the house until they have to go to work on Monday (obviously with the exception of these 15 folks who had the best snow day ever). These two couples aren鈥檛 most people. Rather than cancel preexisting plans to celebrate their various relationship milestones, Felicia + David and Carmen + Kevin decided to make the best of a snowy situation by turning their wedding and engagement shoots into a winter dream come true.

This weekend Baltimore received the most snow it鈥檚 ever had (29.2 inches) but Felicia and David didn鈥檛 let that stop them from having a stunning engagement photo shoot. The two left work last Friday and decided to drive nearly 40 minutes to Fort Meade, Maryland, to play in the snow.

Felicia told ABC News, 鈥淲e had wanted to do a snow photo shoot for a long time, so any opportunity that presented itself, we were just going to take it. I heard on the news that there was going to be a blizzard so I said surely there鈥檒l be snow. I called the photographer [Dotun Ayodeji] and said, 鈥楢re you up for it?鈥 And he said, 鈥極h my God, you鈥檙e reading my mind.'鈥

It seems as though an engagement shoot out in the elements was only appropriate considering David proposed right before Hurricane Joaquin in October of last year. If things keep going this way, we鈥檙e guessing their wedding will more than likely take place in the middle of a wind storm or something.

Carmen + Kevin


After they got engaged, Pennsylvania-based couple Carmen and Kevin decided they wanted a winter wedding because Carmen鈥檚 seasonal allergies are so severe. They were up for a little bit of snow. Instead they got a blizzard.


Thankfully, most of the event was set to take place indoors so the primary concern for these two was that their guests actually be able to attend. Their photographer Jeffrey Sabotta actually took it upon himself to stay at the hotel where the reception was being held all weekend so he would be as accessible as possible for the couple. A fraction of the guests showed up, but by some wedding miracle all that did arrive traveled safely.


In a blog post about the wedding, Jeffrey writes that Kevin told his associate photographer, 鈥淚t was not what we planned for the day, but I couldn鈥檛 be any happier at this moment.鈥
