Christmas Winter Wonderland Wedding

Updated: Dec 8, 2020

Tara loves Christmas. It's like a known fact about her in her family and with her friends. I genuinely LOVE celebrating holidays myself so we bonded quickly and have stayed in touch over the years. She has all boys. I have all boys. It's a special gift to have clients become friends. Here's a look at Tara and Joe's wedding from a few years back that still brings alllll the winter wonderland feels!



Can you even with their attire? I mean so perfect. Artistry in Bloom did such a phenomenal job on their floral pieces as well. I die over the tiny pinecones on Joe's boutonnière!


My absolute favorite aspect of Joe and Tara's day (and that is saying a lot once you see the reception) was the choir that sang them down the aisle. Missouri State's honor choir lined the outer aisles of Integrity Hills Chapel and sang Christmas Canon as Tara walked down the aisle and then Mirrors by Justin Timberlake during their unity candle. It was seriously chills inducing.



And here is the reception from Elsa's dreams...


Some reception highlights for me were the Christmas cards at each place setting from the newlyweds, the carolers during cocktail hour and the amazing uplighting from Creative Outdoor Solutions that changed from warm amber to ice blue during the first dance.
