A Wedding with a Touch of Christmas

Share Button

This Christmas will be very special for my daughter because she and her husband will be celebrating their first Christmas together as husband and wife. She got married this past November and it was such a joyous life event for our family. Weddings are a blissful occasion and each one always has a unique presence of its own.

I think a wedding should reflect the personality of the bride and groom. My daughter absolutely loves Christmas. In fact, she would turn on Christmas music immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. The Christmas tree was an element that I knew is so indicative of who Abbey is to our family. She is the family girl who makes sure we get together during the best times and coordinates schedules to make getting together much easier. It was a delight to reflect all the aspects of who Abbey is by giving her wedding venue a hint of Christmas.
