Winter weddings have a bad reputation because it’s cold outside. I, however, think it’s the perfect time for a wedding. It gives you an excuse to snuggle up extra close and sneak in a few extra kisses. Plus, there’s nothing quite like a winter landscape. Bare trees with hints of green set against a clear sky creates a magical backdrop…which was exactly what Jillian and Mike’s had for their intimate early December wedding. From the classic black and white color palette to photos with Jillian’s horse, the day was full of meaningful details and tons of giggles!
Jillian wore a gorgeous Pronovias gown with a cloud-like train, embellished with dainty buttons. She looked effortlessly elegant! Mike channeled his inner James Bond in a classic black tuxedo. The couple did their first look in their own backyard before heading to the farm to take photos will Jillian’s horse, Bear. While it was definitely chilly, having the perfect light and witnessing Bear’s excitement when he saw Jillian made being out in the cold totally worth it!
Surrounded by 50 of their closest friends, they exchanged their vows at the church Mike’s family attends. After the ceremony, they headed to the Blue Bell Inn for their reception. Guests spent cocktail hour gathered around the fire pit, sipping Jillian’s favorite drink, white cranberry cosmos. DJ Cheddy from Jon Ardito Entertainment kept the party rocking all night long. The evening ended with cordials & coffee and a delicious dessert assortment, which included an ice cream bar.
Jillian and Mike, it was an absolute joy and honor to serve as your wedding coordinator. Every time you look at these stunning photos from Rebekah Viola Photography and watch your wedding video from Shawn Fisher Productions, I hope you’re reminded of how beautiful your love story is!
