Black Tie Christmas Wedding

Are you ready for an infusion of winter glamour in the form of fabulous steal-worthy wedding inspiration? Me, too! I think there’s nothing more sophisticated than a black-tie affair, but when you bring bits of the Holidays into the mix the result is just mind-blowing. This clever due took total advantage of the fact that their wedding was just a few short days before Christmas and brought the holidays into their nuptials in the most beautiful and elegant way possible. They called the amazingly talented Arden Ward from Arden Photography to captured their big day in Atlanta, Georgia and Christopher Confero Design to help create a festive affair that embraced the season in a chic and classy way. I'm head over heal about every detail, but the amazing Monique Lhuillier wedding dress and the stunning centerpieces are definitely my favorite elements. The couple was surprised by Ben Rector, who performed the first dance song… Love it!

How amazing is the back of the bridal gown? Too pretty for words!

The number one advantage of getting married during the holidays is the decor. You don't need to go out loud with the flowers, since churches are usually already decorated with gorgeous greenery and Christmas lights which will bring the beauty and romantic nostalgia of the season to your “Ido's”.

If you observe closely you will discover that there is green ornaments hanging from the chandelier. A beautiful, but subtle way of incorporating the Christmas season into an elegant black-tie wedding, don't you think?

Yep, a Christmas Tree was also invited to the reception.

Thank you so much to Arden Photography for sending us this beauty to kick off our holiday season with style!
