Mr + Mrs Paramore
A Festive Christmas Themed Wedding in North Carolina

In the heart of December, Anna and Seth brought the magic of Christmas to life in their celebration of love all while embodying festive, cozy, and intimate vibes throughout the day. Vibrant red hues wove through the flowers, bridesmaids’ gowns, and decor, evoking the warmth of the Holiday season. The venue, Barn of Chapel Hill, nestled in Raleigh’s outskirts, sparkled with the enchantment of winter florals, Christmas trees, and greenery. Within, it boasts a large reception space and a naturally lit, spacious bridal suite adorned with lovely furniture, a dream come true for photographers to start off the wedding day.

Anna elegantly wore a short-sleeved gown evoking vintage allure, accentuated by modest cap sleeves and a swooping neckline. Her wedding hair featured braids with a sprinkle of pearls, creating a charming winter-inspired look. Her bouquet harmonized beautifully with those carried by her bridesmaids, adding a cohesive touch to the overall aesthetic. Seth in an all black tux with a pop of color in the tie and boutonniere. The bridesmaids wore floor-length, long-sleeved red gowns, while the groomsmen wore sharp all-black tuxedos with bold red ties.

In their details, an invitation suite consisting of five pieces showcased exquisite fonts, simplicity, and even included hand-calligraphed details. The ceremony unfolded amidst the venue’s natural surroundings, as well as, Christmas trees providing a cozy backdrop for the Anna + Seth. A striking velvet red table set the stage for the unity candle segment, adding a touch of elegance to the outdoor setting.

The reception ambiance was a festive blend of delightful details: a hot cocoa bar, splashes of red and green, of course, more Christmas trees, neatly folded red linens, and menu cards paired with name place cards for seating. Charming Christmas decorations added a cozy touch to compliment the entire theme. Anna + Seth sat at their lavishly decorated sweetheart table, which created a focal point for their guests while maintaining an intimate space to savor their time together. Peppermint bark served as adorable favors, adding a sweet note to the celebration. The stunning three-tiered cake, all in white, featured whimsical frosting trees adorning its sides. Guests had the delightful choice between spice cake or peppermint chocolate flavor, ensuring a delightful treat for everyone.

The day held memorable highlights: a touching candle lighting ceremony, a surprise featuring their two pups as flower girls, a delightful hot cocoa bar, heartfelt speeches to each one of their family members, and a magical snow exit marking the end of this magical day.

Anna + Seth,

While our time has been brief, witnessing the blossoming of your love has been an absolute delight since I first met you both. This particular day will always be cherished in my photography journey, and I’m incredibly grateful for the trust you’ve placed in me. I can’t thank you enough – a million times, thank you!
