ryan + brittany: home for the holidays wedding

Christmas is my favorite holiday, weddings are my favorite celebration and family is my favorite thing to share both with – so this month last year was my favorite time of year by far!  My brother Ryan and his bride Brittany celebrated their wedding in a Father of the Bride inspired celebration at her parent’s beautiful home. The backyard was transformed into a winter wonderland ballroom.  A gorgeous shade of holiday red flowed from the flowers all the way to the bride’s dancing toes!

The entire day was magical from start to finish, and I felt so lucky to be able to help add some special touches to their big day.  The smiles that never left their faces were like the perfect bows atop long awaited Christmas gifts under the tree.


The “signature heart” design on their wedding invitations was inspired by a card they received from a friend congratulating them on their engagement.  The design carried through to other details of the day and I loved that it meant something to them from the very start.













So excited to spend the holidays this year with our growing family and celebrate the first Christmas as Mr. & Mrs. for not one but two of my siblings.  The holidays just couldn’t get much brighter!

Merry 1st Married Christmas Ryan & Brittany!!  Love you both!
