clemmons wedding photographer: amanda+william 12.03.11

though spring is finally here, its never too late to post a beautiful wedding we documented just before christmas. its such a festive time of year to get married, i just love christmas weddings!  

amanda and william's late afternoon ceremony was held in their church on december 3rd, which was decorated with wreaths on the front doors, candles in each window, and a sea of beautiful poinsettias on the alter.  four white poinsettias were placed in honor and memory of the couple's grandparents, which was such a sweet touch.

amanda's dress was fabulous! i loved the red accents on her train and along the hemline and top of her dress, very fitting for a christmas wedding. and those red shoes... too cute! it was such a privilege to be able to view her bridal session images prior to her wedding, which were absolutely stunning. my colleague and dear friend stesha, of seed sower images photographed her bridal and engagements, however she was unable to photograph the wedding. my assistant-partner extraordinaire, terry, and i were thrilled for the referral and honored to work with amanda and william on their wedding day. they were wonderful!

a dinner reception was held close by at tanglewood park in the clubhouse. it just so happened the park was decorated for the festival of lights, which was truly impressive, i might add.  we had to follow the wedding party's limo in the back entrance, as a traffic jam had incurred inside the park! because terry was behind the wheel, i was able to take some drive-by photos of the christmas lights as we made our way to the reception.

the ballroom at the clubhouse was beautifully decorated with white twinkling lights and plenty of red and silver sparkles to complete the look of the holidays. visions catering provided a delicious meal with a pleasing presentation and the wedding cake by dewey's bakery was almost too pretty to eat!  chris of triad dj, and his assistant mitch did an amazing job as they always do, by keeping the party going all evening.  everyone had fun and you could just see how much amanda and william were enjoying themselves without any worries.  what a sweet couple!
