Caroline and Thad’s day was in one word, “Amazing!” I mean we had so much fun- what a way to end the year!

The Atrium at Cullman was where these two chose to celebrate their vows, it was perfect for the day! Caroline’s (future) mother in law decorated the Atrium with as you will see below Christmas trees and Christmas decor! It was so nice to be in the midst of the crazy holidays and to stop and enjoy these two souls becoming one as family and friends surrounded them!

The entire day was very relaxed and a lot of fun.  You could tell the bridal party were great friends.  Did you see the flannel pajamas?!  The day started with everyone getting ready at the Atrium.  Once Caroline had her dress on, she wanted to surprise her bridesmaids with a first look.  As you can tell, they were overjoyed (we even think we saw one cry) and they had to hug her immediately.  Next was her first look with Thad. Since the venue was so well decorated, we placed Thad at the end of the aisle and let the Christmas trees be the backdrop, aren’t they adorable? We LOVE the expression on Thad’s face when Caroline is in his arms shortly after their first look.

We took full advantage of the Christmas trees for couple photos.  After those shots, we moved outside to the field nearby.  Despite being in December, the field looked beautiful.  Caroline even sneaked in a mistletoe photo for us! Like we said, super fun couple and wedding day.

The ceremony was sweet, and Caroline added a beautiful veil to walk down the aisle with. It was a nice surprise for Thad for sure. The reception was a blast and had Mexican food plus authentic Churros!  Their exit was pretty cool too, they used glow sticks and laser lights.  We loved it.

Caroline and Thad, we wish the very best and know you guys will love marriage.
