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.

The fella’s singing “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling!” right before the garter toss. It was epic.

Michael here. “Baby Baby” Mozingo has arrived! Born on Wednesday, July 29th at 1:16 pm weighing in at 7 lbs. and 2 oz. We are grateful to God for a smooth delivery and a healthy baby boy. Meriah did incredible. A huge dose of gratitude goes to Jill Schwarzkopf with Realities Photography for hanging with us through the day. Her photos really captured the essence of these special moments. Some additional photos were taken by family once Ezra arrived to meet his baby brother. Seeing them meet was one of the most special moments of my life. Enjoy the photos!

Shout out to my good buddy and a fellow photographer Katy Cook for finding this awesome chest of drawers for us! I had the side table to match and I just love what both those pieces add to the room!

My cousin Michelle made the canvas for us with one of my favorite Bible verses.

I found these wall decals on Zulilly. I got all teary eyed when I saw them displayed over the crib. This will remind us to speak this often over our special wee one.

Since little brother got some of big brother’s “hand me down” decor, we did some new things in Ezra’s room! Ezra is WAY in to construction vehicles!
