I am so excited to share Kim and Ben's Christmas inspired wedding today! Ben proposed to Kim during their family Christmas party while reading the book How the Grinch Stole Christmas. So while meeting with Kim to plan her wedding day timeline I was sure to ask her to bring the book for some fun photos to help them remember this special time.
Fairfax Hall was decorated like your dream living room on Christmas day with lights, trees, and greenery everywhere. The candlelight and tree lights are what lit the room so it was very dark and romantic, which I LOVE!! The bridesmaids wore the most beautiful shade of red that just screamed Christmas wedding and the men were accented in green of course. The two flower girls had dresses with red bows and red shoes and were simply adorable. Speaking of red, Kim's red shoes by White Dress by Greta Kay were stunning!! The red satin covered with lace and the red ribbon were simply Christmas wedding perfection! Then there was the amazing bouquet by The Faded Poppy. Full of red roses and a single white rose in honor of the bride's father, it was simple and elegant and perfect in every way. The men had white rose boutonnieres with a hint of holly. The greenery around the fire place and tables, along with pine cones and other wood elements made the room even more cozy. Every detail of this wedding was thoughtful and perfect.
Having a December wedding can be tricky in Virginia. The weather could be 60, or we could have a foot of snow. The weather for this December wedding was perfect. It was calling for rain, but it never came althout it did provide us with the most perfect clouds for a sunset portrait. December weddings are also the perfect time for intimate indoor weddings such as this, so even if the weather didn't cooperate it wouldn't matter.
Enjoy a preview of this beautiful December wedding full or red and green details and even more full of love and laughter!!
