It’s Christmas in July… I mean August on the blog today! About this time of the year I start craving cooler weather and Christmastime! That craving reminded me to share this awesome Christmas wedding Olivia and Alex had last December. It was SUCH a great day with such a beautiful couple.
The wedding was held at Windmock at Kinderton in Winston Salem. We had never shot at this venue before and enjoyed the beauty of this massive barn!
The bride’s mom Renee did the majority of planning and decor and I was stunned by the attention to detail. There were so many unique things about this Christmas wedding as you can see in the detail shots. This moment happened when Renee was showing Olivia the decor of her ceremony. These two women share a special bond and it was great to get to witness the appreciation they have for each other.
Olivia wore her mother’s wedding dress that was made by her grandmother. The dress looked a bit different however because Olivia was invited to be on the television show “Something Borrowed, Something New” and the designers on the show redesigned the dress. It was such a beautiful remake of the dress and it fit Olivia’s personality and style perfectly.
