It’s officially the most wonderful time of the year! To celebrate that fact, we’re thrilled to be sharing images from the classic winter “I do” that closed out last year’s wedding season for our team. Hattie and Joel exchanged vows just a few days after Christmas on December 30, 2017, and chose to showcase their proximity to the holiday via a variety of festive details. Let’s get started on unwrapping them, shall we?

A traditional palette of rich reds, gorgeous greens, and glittering gold was carried throughout the ceremony at First Christian Church in Plano, where a spectacular stained-glass window served as a backdrop. Our beautiful bride, Hattie, was a dream in her wedding gown which featured layer upon layer of voluminous white tulle. From the gown’s lace bodice, to the intricately beaded belt cinching her waist, to the stunning diamond and gold drop earrings that accented her bridal attire, every detail was perfection! Joel’s black-tie ensemble, which featured a boutonnière wrapped in a plaid ribbon with a sprig of evergreen, gave a classic nod to the season as well.
Sumptuous Christmas details also abounded at the Southfork Ranch reception. Candles, garland, and white settees from Perch Decor accented by lush red and green velvet throw pillows helped transform the iconic venue into a winter wonderland. Tables were adorned with vibrant red roses, berries, lavish greenery, and tartan cloth napkins while lanterns and rustic antler chandeliers provided ambiance from above.
Since Hattie and many of her bridesmaids are professional dancers, of course a fabulous choreographed dance routine was incorporated into the evening—it was such a hit with groom and guests alike. What better way to say Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
