Christmas has come early to the blog and I am so excited to share Kevin +Shawn's intimate, winter wedding with yall this morning!
It had been a little over a year since I had last seen these two for their engagement session so when the big day finally came, I was beyond excited to pick right back up from where we had left off and to capture the magic that was about to unfold.
The day took place at Twelve Oaks Plantation in Covington, GA and this place was a show stopper! This historic plantation was completely decked out for the holidays, sported some of the most beautiful garden spaces, and was the inspiration for the home in Gone with the Wind!
There was this most relaxed feeling to the day as things got started and to be honest, was the perfect way to describe the day in general! These two were just happy to be there, surrounded by family + friends, and to finally be able to tie the knot after such a long time of planning!
After the details were shot + the dress was put on, Shawn + Kevin met on the porches and shared such a romantic first look together. You can tell from these moments and the looks on their faces during portraits that they share such a love + joy for one another and it was contagious!
The ceremony started right before sunset and it was special to see how their family was incorporated throughout this time as passages were read and vows were officiated!
The party then started on the back deck of the plantation but quickly moved inside as temperatures dropped well below 45 degrees and you better believe that the hand-made fudge/dessert table came in handy at this point!
The night ended as the two newlyweds made their way through a display of aritifical snow and now if I could have all my weddings end like this, I wouldnt complain!
Congrats to the new Mr. + Mrs. De Rome and hope that your first Christmas together is more than perfect!
