Our ceremony was held at my husband's hometown church and the reception was in the nearby small town (population 53 to be exact) since they have the only suitable venue within a 100 mile radius ;) Our theme was, as mentioned, Christmas-Winter Wonderland with theme colors of red and silver. There were about 80+ guests and more people showed up later, when the doors were opened for the general public. We had a dj to play a variety of music, so a bunch of people in their cowboy hats and boots came over to dance. Yee-haw! ;)
Here are some more photos of our wedding, as promised :)
here's her inspirational photos). I think she created the exact atmosphere I wanted; a Christmas-y Winter Wonderland. A lot of the Winter Wonderland themes had this "cold" feeling to them, which I wanted to avoid, so she used a lot of red and a good deal of warm light to create a not too tacky Christmas feeling. It was just amazing, I didn't even smell the cow dung that lingers everywhere in the Middle of Nowhere :-) I owe her big time!
different cake topper, but that ended up not working. This one was great too.
Year 2012 will be here soon, yay! <3
