It’s my favorite time of year!! MARRY Christmas to all my couples! <–see what I did there? hehehe

I know we are in the last stretch of the Christmas Countdown, but I thought everyone could use a break from all that Christmas Cheer! So, y’all remember Winola and Marcus, right??  They are such a fun couple, and I’m sooooooooo glad I was there to photograph them starting their life together! <3

A couple of things to mention for their wedding photos! The décor in this wedding was amazing! Just the right amount of bling and sparkle! Feathers, glitter, gold…oh my! It was a Great Gatsby dream! Winola, that birdcage was on point!! Winola and Marcus decided on a first look, which I am always pro-first look….They also did an alternative to the typical sparkler exit with some streamer popper things. I will say that these were definitely easier clean up than sparklers and much safer because you don’t have a bunch of drunk people playing with fireworks. This is a pretty good alternative to sparklers if your venue is not cool with them. Hey, I’m all about giving couples options. Also, they had a second shooter with their package, and I think Katie was able to get some cool views of the ceremony from up in the balcony. 🙂

But enough with the chit chat, let’s see the photos!

That cake…was awesome!

Their DJ had some pretty cool lights. Consider these cool swirly lights instead of those green dots. (Not a fan of the green dots. Like why is green even a color for a reception?? I guess I’m just partial to this pinky/purple color.) 🙂
