We're considering having our wedding ceremony outside. At night. In winter. Is this completely crazy? Is there any way to make it less crazy?

Our original plan was to have an evening wedding next May at Stern Grove in San Francisco, with the ceremony outside under the trees and the reception indoors. But now, for various reasons, we've moved the date up to this December. I'd still like to make the original plan work if possible, but an outdoor evening ceremony is May is very different from an outdoor evening ceremony in December. I know the weather would be unpredictable, and my fiance is worried about elderly relatives tripping over themselves in the dark and then freezing to death.
We could also have the ceremony indoors and switch up the layout afterwards for the reception, or we could have the ceremony somewhere else entirely, but I'm not sold on either of those ideas just yet.
Have you ever been to a ceremony that was outside at night in the dark? In December? Was it dreadful? What can we do to make it awesome?
