Texan Christmas Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

This wedding is the very definition of a girl’s heaven, complete with glittery golds and pink galore. Kacie and Jonathan stayed true to their Texan roots, but also wanted a Christmas wedding. And what a fun holiday wedding they had! Shot by Luke and Cat Photography, you will find inspiration from end to end.

From the bride, Kacie: Jonathan and I have both always had a huge love and fascination for all things Christmas. It was a no-brainer for the both of us when deciding when to have the wedding, we immediately knew it had to be in December. Since I was little, one Christmas tree was never enough in our household, so when it came time for a wedding ‘theme’ I was super excited to break out my massive collection of trees, vintage Shiny Brite ornaments and tinsel. To me- the more the merrier with decorations. I was literally hanging tinsel in the barn to the very last minute, my mom had to tell me to get off the ladder and get dressed! We wanted our venue to be cozy and feel like home, and Rachel Ashwell’s The Prairie does just that.

A lot of thought went into choosing our songs, and we changed them several times. For the ceremony music, we wanted something upbeat and fun, so of course Sonny & Cher and The Beach Boys were a must!

My advice for future couples is to just relax! No matter how much you stress over every little detail, something will always change, so just go with it! As long as you’re married by the end of the day, then your wedding was a success. Just be thankful for the love that you both share, and focus on that. I promise no one will notice that your napkins are a different shade of ivory from the plates!

From Cat of Luke and Cat Photography: Kacie and Jonathan planned the cutest little Texas Christmas wedding you ever did see! Shabby chic Christmas, to be exact! The bride’s rowdy personal style came to life with her vision for the wedding day. The venue, The Prairie, is the creative outlet of shabby chic royalty, Rachel Ashwell. Handpainted signs and Christmas trees greeted the guests as they took the drive down the dirt road that leads to the property.

A basic white wedding dress just wouldn’t do for a bride like Kacie – so she hired a custom designer to make her dream dress come to life. The ruffled ombre pink gown was accentuated at the waist with a hot pink leather belt, and the bride wore her version of high heels – pink cowboy boots! No traditional flowers would do for a DIY expert like Kacie, so she made all the flowers herself by hand dying coffee filters various shades of pink. The bouquets were wrapped with antique found tassel and the boutonnières were accentuated with dyed (by the bride) mint colored felt ‘leaves’ and antique lace.

After being married outdoors at sunset underneath palm tree’s, the guests enjoyed cocktail hour (and custom koozies designed by the bride herself) in the courtyard area. As the newlyweds entered the reception, guests lined up and showered them with fake snow for their grand entrance through hot pink candy canes. The Prairie’s open air Pearl Barn’s vintage wallpaper, wooden floor, chandeliers, and tin roof were treated like a too-good-to-be-true canvas for the reception décor. Each table had unique linens and a different centerpiece of Christmas décor – ranging from vintage to classic. Highlights included funky hot pink trees, stuffed reindeer, tinsel, and every color Christmas ornament under the sky. Because no one should leave a Christmas party without a favor, the guests all grabbed a take-home favor of pink cotton candy.

Pink San Francisco Christmas Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

If you’re a fan of pink, then just settle right in and prepare yourself for this wonder from The Goodness! Erica and Andrew’s wedding is a shining example of all things pink and sparkly with heaping touches of Mexican tradition. Pair up all these beauties with crafty and bright paper goods from The Goodness, and you’ve got a Christmas wedding we’re just wild about!

From the bride, Erica: Andrew and I had been together for 11 years before we married and were thrilled to be making it official. In the Mexican culture weddings are a major rite of passage, so getting those Catholic and Mexican parts of the ceremony right was critical. Our mass included the lasso (mine was pink, of course), the arras (coins), and the bouquet to the Virgin Mary (which I made).

Andrew and I don’t get to share holidays with all of our family every year (most of my family lives in Los Angeles), so more than anything we wanted to create a wedding weekend that felt like Christmas. The kind we wish we could have every year: church (of course), a huge dinner, dancing, music, and fun. Being the Type A gal that I am and being an Studio Art Major in college I could not help but see our event as one giant meticulously organized art project. Creating an emotional reaction with your audience is the biggest high for an artist, so hearing Ooooh’s and Aaaah’s was paramount. I envisioned a vintage pink Christmas that sparkled and glowed visually and for our guests was delicious, elegant, memorable, fun and most important personal.

San Francisco wedding planning was exciting — the entire city is a photo op; however, as a hands-on kind of person I was afraid I was going to hand over control to a total stranger at some hotel, but we were able to find a location and vendors that helped us keep it personal. We chose the Century Club because we could have the building to ourselves, make it our own, and most importantly choose our own vendors (florist, DJ, caterer, etc). Andrew and I are foodies, it was critical that we choose our own menu and our caterer (a family friend) created a dazzling Christmas menu with OUR favorites. We had an amuse bouche of shrimp and lime sauce, a beet and goat cheese salad, and a duel entry of turkey mashed potatoes steak and faro dressing with cranberry sauce and parsnips. Griselda was fabulous, she even cut beets into the shape of hearts for our “Heart Beets” goat cheese salad. Our cake was a gorgeous and delicious with pink butter cream icing with gold glitter and my parents wedding topper.

Although we wanted a vintage Christmas theme we didn’t want green and red. Pink was our color, the uplighting made our vision come to life and keeping the banquet room door closed during the cocktail hour made for a dramatic reveal for our guest as they Oooh’ed and Aaah’ed while entering the glowing room to Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory song “Pure Imagination.” Our most important choice however had to have been our photographers, The Goodness, who besides being amazing photographers create equally beautiful stationary. They helped elevate our visions from homemade to polished showstoppers, and allowed me to be myself every step of the way. They even created a logo for our wedding which we lovingly plastered on everything from mailing labels, water bottles, to the welcome bags we provided at the hotel.

San Francisco can get foggy all year long and in December forgetaboutit! But on December 3, 2011 it could not have been more beautiful, sunny clear skies set the stage for a magical day. I walked the aisle with my father to a cantor singing Ave Maria which echoed in the gorgeous and historical church. We were photographed at the Palace of Fine Arts and Crissy Field with the Golden Gate Bridge in the back ground, all places which have been in so many of my childhood memories as well as my memories as a couple. Our families made the day everybit as meaningful, memorable, complete with dance offs and hilarious photo booth pictures. The whole day felt like the most magnificent and lovely Pink Christmas imaginable.

California Winter Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

Whenever we see snow in wedding pictures, it’s almost as though it adds a mystical quality to the wedding itself, and this wedding sent over by Jennifer Eileen is absolutely no exception. Brett and Brandon married in the mountains of California during a particularly snowy January, and we have to say the weather meshed pretty perfectly with their wedding aesthetic. Don’t miss their mason jar snow globes or the cold-weather animal table numbers!

From the photographer, Jennifer: My all time favorite thing about photographing weddings is when I click so well with a client that a friendship is created. That is exactly what happened with Brett & Brandon. Brett is uber cute, uber talented, and uber fun. Her creativity knows no bounds. Paired with her now sister-in-law, this duo can pull off the most fantastic moments. Brett built her wedding off of the song “January Wedding” by Avett Brothers. Therefore Brett and Brandon were wed in the mountains, in January, on the first major snow of the season. It was utterly beautiful.

Their wedding is chock full of DIY details! I loved their chalkboard escort table, the homemade mason jar snow globes, the canned peaches which were the favors, the hand drawn table numbers, the flowers that Brett (the bride) did were just so stunning, and the dessert table was not only beautiful but delicious! Also, I have to mention, the clips in Brett’s hair, her mom’s hair, and her sister’s hair were all made by Inglenook from Brett’s mom’s wedding dress. Such a lovely touch.
