Holiday Special: Until Next Year, Red Green & White

While our twinkling lights twinkled and joyous voices caroled, the fa-la-la-la-festive day that we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! Merry Christmas everybody! Up until now we haven’t had a chance to truly appreciate the holiday’s visual contributions to season’s celebrations, so we’ve compiled a collection of holly, jolly (at times even delicious) Christmas-inspired wedding features! Read on to sample essences of Christmas that we adore and will most certainly miss as we part ways with #xmas2017.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Lights

Your wedding lighting can make or break you wedding decor. For the best lighting, you’ll want to do a mix of up lights and overhead lights. Our favorite overhead lights? Twinkly lights! This may not be a technical term, but we really do love these romantic strings of twinkling lights. It’s like looking up at the stars!
