Christmas Wedding: Rebekah + James

Rebekah always knew she wanted a Christmas wedding and her special day was nothing short of magical.  The decor for this entire wedding and reception would have blown the Christmas town of McAdenville out of the water.  Christmas trees lit up the entire church and I felt as though I was a photographer on the set of a Hallmark movie.

The feeling throughout the day was warm and cozy.  Love and laughter flowed through the church as Rebekah and James prepared for the ceremony.  Before the ceremony began, the couple shared an intimate first touch and exchanged letters.  We all began to tear up as the two silently read their love letters.

After Rebekah and James exchanged vows and rings, her father held up some mistletoe for their first kiss as husband and wife.  However, that’s not the best part.  One of Rebekah’s bridesmaids handed her a microphone and just before they exited, Rebekah surprised James by singing “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”  The guests went wild and my cheeks were hurting from so much smiling!

At the reception, guests were greeted with homemade chicken noodle soup, a hot cocoa bar, and a candy bar.  After everyone settled in, they shared a huge meal together and mingled throughout the night.  What an extraordinary day with the most wonderful people.  I hope you enjoy their story as much as I have!
