A Winter Wedding Down by the River

Katie and Steve had a winter wedding on a bright, sunny December day down at the river.

The bride looked stunning in a an A Line lace wedding gown that featured the most beautiful lace train.  Katie gave adorable robes to each of her bridesmaids to wear while getting dressed.  She chose bridesmaids dresses that complemented her gown perfectly with a scoop neckline and lace bodice.  The bridesmaids dresses color were cherry red, great for a wedding during the holidays!  We love the color red in weddings and here are more ways to use it!

Katie’s wedding bouquet featured seeded and silver dollar eucalyptus, white and red garden roses, and scarlet red astilbe.  Her bridesmaids bouquets also had eucalyptus but included white hydrangeas.   She dressed the groom and groomsmen in her wedding colors, red and blue.  Steve looked handsome in a navy suit with a navy tie.  Each groomsmen wore a navy suit with a navy vest, red tie and red pocket handkerchief.   The cute ring bearer also wore a navy suit and red bow tie.

Prior to the ceremony, the couple stole a few moments together with a “first touch”.

A highlight of the ceremony was the God’s Knot Cord of Three Strands.  While Steve held the ring, Katie tied 3 strands together that symbolized  the union of God, the bride and the groom.

During the recessional, Steve surprised his mother by returning to escort her down the aisle.  Be sure to check out how happy this made the mother of the groom!

At the reception, the couple displayed the groom’s football jersey and used it as their guest sign in book.   At the same table, they had a memorial to those who had passed that they loved by displaying beautifully framed photos.

The evening ended with a romantic sparkler send off.  Congratulations Katie and Steve!
