Laney and Jeremy's December wedding at Old Sugar Mill was nothing short of magical. There were tears shed, snow falling during their first dance and an incredible amount of DIY winter wedding projects that made the whole place literally and figuratively light up. Our favorite details were the monogrammed flannels (!!!) the bride and bridesmaids wore while they got dressed, the candle-topped piles of fake snow that lined the aisle and the bucket of blankets for guests to use as the cold December night wore on. These two embraced the winterness of their wedding and threw in tons of gorgeous Christmas details - their colors were red and green, the groosmen wore shawl collar sweaters instead of blazers, the boutinierres and bouquets included things like pinecones, holly berries, fir branches and fake snow. The ceremony and reception sites had Christmas trees and wreaths. The bride even wore a stunning fur wrap!
And there were just so many wonderful, emotional moments during this wedding. The one to look out for in this photoset is the letter exchange: Laney and Jeremy wanted to see each other for the first time during the ceremony but still wanted to communicate beforehand, so they stood on either side of a door and exchanged love letters! It was so tender that it was hard for me not to cry while documenting Laney's reaction. Thank you, Laney and Jeremy, for letting us capture your stunning wedding day. May all your Christmas seasons be as sweet as this one!
