Do you love Christmas? Do you love Christmas as much as Danny and Laurie?! Just see these photos below because the Holidays are written all over this super festive wedding!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 And I LOVE it!!! This couple is something else. <3 I instantly connected with Danny and Laurie during our initial meeting after hearing how much they love this time of the year. HELLO, dream couple!!! Not just that … They are head over heels in love for each other, and it is so evident that they were meant to be together. Danny and Laurie are so incredibly thoughtful, caring, genuine, sweet, humble, and joyful! A couple of examples of their thoughtfulness — I came home one day to a package from them last week with some of the most thoughtful presents drawn from my favorite things I’ve mentioned in personal blog posts. Another example … During the reception, they surprised Laurie’s sister with singing Happy Birthday and even had a candle for her to make a wish. 🙂 Did I mention how much I adore them?!
When they were planning for their big celebration, they wanted to have a great mix of rustic-Holiday! They achieved it with the natural rustic charm the Winery at Bull Run offers with the wooden wall interior and stone fireplaces. Christmas trees and twinkle lights decorated the rooms and touches of burgundy were added through the florals. I also loved the pine cones in the details mixed with the red berries to add that touch of that festive Holiday theme! Their families came together on Sunday to celebrate one of the best days of their life during the most joyful time of the year! And it was indeed the best day ever!!!! They didn’t stop smiling all day long, even with tears of happiness streaming down their faces! They were so loved by everyone, and they deserved every bit of happiness! Check out their magical day below!!! 🙂
DANNY AND LAURIE’S WEDDING DAY
Immediately when I walked into Laurie’s room, her smile could be spotted MILES away! Her joyful, kind, and enthusiastic personality is what instantly connected us!! <3 Love her! Also, love these personalized wine tumblers!!!
Her gem is very precious, but also very delicate. The one gem Danny proposed to her chipped and had to be replaced. But Laurie wanted to forever cherish that first gem, she had it made into a necklace. 🙂 So sweet and special!!!
While Danny got ready, I could tell he just wanted to see his bride!!! 🙂 Fortunately for him, he didn’t have to wait much longer!
In the meantime, Laurie’s joy continued as she got ready with special women in her life. 🙂
Love these winter/Christmas-inspired boutonnieres!!!
Fixing final touches before her father walked in. 🙂 Gosh, she looked amazing!!!!
I think she was excited!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 The ring on the right is a family heirloom she wore on the wedding day. So special to tie in personal touches!!
Her father walked in and said, “Wow, Laurie! You are everything I imagined and more! You’re absolutely stunning!!!” I loved his enthusiasm seeing his daughter all dolled up. <3
We had a beautiful December day to take photos outside with family and friends!!
But before the sunset, we made sure to have time for Laurie and Danny to have some time together. 🙂 I loved Danny’s reaction!!! So sweet!!! He couldn’t love her better!!! They adore each other!!!
LOOK AT THOSE SMILES!!!! They say it all!!! 🙂
I have too many favorites!! They looked amazing!
AWE!!! Their smiles are contagious!!
We got their besties together for photos with beautiful lighting!!!
I love the wine bottle tradition — Every five years on their anniversary, they will open the bottle of wine and their handwritten cards together and then replace it with another bottle of wine and two cards! 🙂
“Where are the rings?!” HAHAHAHA!
The way she smiles when she looks at him… 🙂
Danny and Laurie LOVEEEEE Christmas. LOVE it!!!!!!! They used personalized ornaments as their table assignments/favors. Great idea!!!
Mistletoe was hung in the middle of the dance floor. 🙂
Besides cake, they had little treats like cookies, brownies, and even a hot cocoa station!!!
I loved that the speeches emphasized how Danny and Laurie could not be more perfect for one another. Between their love for PHISH, Christmas, family/friends, and so much more, it’s evident how they were meant to find another. <3
Also, I love how Christy hinted that you know Laurie is excited about something when she shimmies! HAHA! Alex and I have a running joke that when we are excited about something, we also shimmy while saying “YYYYESSSSS!” Haha! I knew Laurie and I had a lot in common! 😉
When the dance floor opened, guests enjoyed getting down action to Phish and other classic jams!
Laurie surprised her sister since they celebrated their wedding day on Christy’s 30th Birthday!!! 🙂 So sweet!!!
Love these two!!!!
What a way to end the night dancing away!!! 🙂
Thank you, Danny and Laurie, for your enthusiastic, joy-filled wedding day!!! I could not have enjoyed my time more celebrating with you. <3 It was a true honor!!!! I cannot wait to see where your marriage takes you! I love your love for one another, and I adore you two together!
Thanks to the vendors who made this day possible!!!
