*Warning many pictures ahead!* I always pictured a Christmas wedding and that is just what we did. It was over Thanksgiving weekend but Christmas was up everywhere so it was the start to the holiday season.
I loved the traditional look of my dress:
My bridesmaids wore red:
Here is our whole wedding party:
I always pictured a fur lined dress but they didn't have that, however I did find a fur lined cape that I wore over my dress:
We took pictures at a local greenhouse where their poinsettia show had just begun that weekend:
We set up the tables the day before with christmas boxes filled with chocolates for favors and it is hard to see in the picture but everyone also had a set of jingle bells to ring when they wanted us to kiss:
Everyone also left with a christmas ornament that had their place card in it:
This is the card holder my dad made for me:
Here is our beautiful cake with Mickey and Minnie under the mistletoe as our topper:
Father/Daughter Dance, My dad passed away 5 months later so this picture is very special to me:
Uncle Jim playing the accordian for the chicken dance and some polka, a tradition in our family
We had a fabulous day and I wouldn't change a minute of it. I love looking back over our album and video (especially the part where Bill gets choked up during the vows :) so sweet. We are still so grateful for all our family and friends who supported us that day and continue to be a support to us in our marriage.
