For those who fully embrace the spirit of the season: enjoy a bit of Christmas wedding inspiration in this holiday styled shoot!
Steph (Gray Door Photography) and I had been dreaming of Christmas details all year long… this was our chance to put a festive spin on an elegant styled shoot, bringing a dose of holiday magic to our portfolios. Along with Angela Sostarich Photography and a team of exquisite vendors, we were able to capture a bit of Christmas spirit; I’m excited to share it with you today!
The invitation suite is an instant favorite, featuring thoughtful holiday touches from start to finish. The main invitation showcases a hand-illustrated wreath, loosely calligraphed names, and a Christmas scripture: “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14).
I tucked custom illustrations throughout the rest of the suite: evergreen pine leaves, a sprig of mistletoe, and little winter berries. Burgundy envelopes and delicate textures brought the whole look together, topped by festive gift tags (I spy one for Stephanie’s puppy, Hazel!).
Our mantle scene has me dreaming of Christmas eve, and the romance of softly flickering candles. If only I could hand-calligraph the wrapping paper for all my Christmas gifts, like we did for these pretty presents!
We also styled a darling sweetheart table with wintry antlers and a pop of burgundy florals—the mix of natural textures with metallic flatware and gold-rimmed glasses makes for a perfect holiday tabletop.
The Christmas season is so very dear to those of us who honor the birth of our Savior. It truly is an honor to incorporate design elements that speak to the joy and glory of this divine occasion. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to honor our Lord through my daily work… and this Christmas wedding inspiration is certainly no exception!
Joy to the world!
