In honor of our Christmas snow, about a week too late, we’ll reminisce with one of our holiday couples from 2010. George and Ashley had been dating for years, but you could never tell by the looks they gave each other. This whole day was filled with love, tears of joy, and lots of laughter. There was no shortage of emotions being shown the entire day from the time Ashley embraced her grandmother before going to the church to the craziness of the packed dance floor that night.
We spent all of their creative time outdoors in Medina Square which is such a great place for photos any time of the year but the Christmas lights add a bit of magic to the old fashioned street fronts, park benches and gazebo. We love shooting with Christmas lights! The camera sees them so differently than our eyes do and it just adds great visual interest to the background.
Ashley made some beautiful choices with colors in brown and fuschia that worked wonderfully against a winter wonderland and shows that you don’t have to go red and green when planning a wedding during the holiday season. Furs for her and the girls also added some visual interest as well as a cozy feel to the photographs.
We can’t emphasis enough how glamorous a winter themed wedding can be, especially when it comes to your photos. There’s nothing like a night time shot with a little snow and twinkling lights to really make for a unique image that you’ll treasure for years to come. Also consider that your church and reception hall will likely be decked out for the holidays so you can take advantage of the bonus decorations without breaking your floral budget. And most importantly, no one ever looks cold in their pictures so let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
