Real Wedding: Ellen + Chris at The Barn at Valhalla

Ellen and Chris' wedding day was such a winter wonderland! They were married on a cold Tuesday - directly after a big snow storm hit the Triangle. Snow still blanketed the ground and created a beautiful backdrop for their wedding day photos! I'd describe this special couple as one of the most intentional couples I know! They are kind and truly care about their family and friends. Chris is a very talented composer and he serenaded his bride with a beautiful original song on the guitar. After their meaningful ceremony, guests enjoyed a hot chocolate and coffee bar before entering the barn. The bride and groom wanted their wedding reception to be an intimate dinner party. Long dinner tablescapes included a Christmas tree garland with a candle mix and conversation cards for all guests to enjoy with one another. Tableside wine service was enjoyed in beautiful antique goblets collected by the bride. I loved watching guests enjoy catching up with one another - most travelled from out of town to be together!

Best wishes to you Ellen and Chris - as you travel the world and adventure together!

With love, Becca
