It was an awesome day collaborating with wonderful vendors and photographers for this Christmas styled shoot. From the cranberries in the champagne glasses to the copper arch with greenery, every detail brought out the magical touches for a Winter inspired wedding. Scroll down to view all the beautiful pictures and to learn more about the bride and groom's love story.
Meet the bride and groom models, Katelyn and Nathaniel. This beautiful bride met her handsome husband when they were ten years old and their love grew for each other ever since. Here's a little excerpt from the bride:
"We were both home schooled by our moms and did classes together and then ended up going to the same high school as best friends. I was always smitten over him and knew I wanted to marry him! Our senior year of high school on a trip in the Dominican Republic, we sat under the stars and talked about life and love. We both talked of big dreams for the future to travel and become speakers, and change the world for the better. That night we talked for hours and I knew I wanted this forever. In March we decided we would date and it was so awesome to have my best friend as my boyfriend. We dated for 3 years in college and our the summer after junior year we got married. It was the best day of my life! He’s been my best friend from the beginning and every day I fall a little more in love with him."
Their love for each other certainly showed during this shoot. I couldn't help but notice the groom constantly helping the bride with her dress, it was such a sweet gesture. Also the bridesmaid was the bride's sister, which their sisterly bond couldn't be unnoticed.
