Two of our favorite things: weddings and Christmas! There is something completely magical about winter weddings, especially just before the holidays, when the world is filled with anticipation and joy. Deena & Brad’s wedding was no exception. From the perfectly vibrant winter sunset just before their ceremony, to the luminary-lined walkway as guests exited the church, to the snow falling softly as guests departed the reception, this wedding was a spectacular celebration of the warmth of love in this frosty season.
Pay close attention to the aerial photos we included of the reception venue, which is a spectacular transformation of Deena’s family’s backyard in High Point, NC. It took nearly 18,000 sf of tenting, (sometimes 16 feet off the ground), a huge group of wedding creatives (please see below), and the imaginative design direction of JW Walton from The Catering Co. of Chapel Hill to create this magical space! A big thanks to the Grace Leisure Events team for keeping us so well-organized and for helping the night run so smoothly!
Deena & Brad: we’re sure your holiday was a bright one, with this wedding as a prelude to the season! We thank you and your warm families for making us feel so welcome and for giving us the opportunity to document such a stunning event! We wish you heaps of joy in the years to come!
