A Festive Christmas Wedding | Emily & Tyler | Lafayette, IN

I have a confession. It’s the middle of January and I’m definitely listening to jazzy Christmas music while writing this blog post. Only because this wedding was SO festive and going through these photos just made me wanna get back into the Christmas spirit! When Emily & Tyler got engaged December 1st, they knew they wanted to have a holly jolly wedding to celebrate their favorite holiday as well as their marriage. Exactly one year later, they tied the knot in the same church where Emily’s parents got married!

Ahhh that face — pure joy to finally be Mr. & Mrs. Richter! What was supposed to be a cold, stormy December day turned into a not so frigid afternoon with not a single drop of rain during portrait time. It was a dream come true! Emerald green bridesmaid dresses and woodsy floral accents added the perfect touch of Christmas cheer. Emily looked beyond stunning in her lace gown with just a hint of bling and the guys made a statement with epic superhero socks. Emily & Tyler’s pup, Minnie, even made a special appearance!

Always gotta make time for a pit-stop at Harry’s Chocolate Shop! Emily & Tyler’s reception was decorated to the nines with garland, pinecones, and multiple Christmas trees! I think everyone would agree that they were a hugeee fan of Christmas Sweets Table; there were sugar cookies, buckeyes, and chocolate fudge galore!

The night was filled with heartfelt speeches, a hilarious cake smash, and everyone out on the dance floor bustin’ their best moves. Oh, but did I mention that SANTA himself showed up?!? Yep, Christmas wedding goals!!! Almost everyone was excited to see him… haha keep scrolling to see what I mean!

Thank you thank you thank you, Emily & Tyler, for inviting me to capture your wonderful wedding. You two are SO much fun, unbelievably gracious, and cute as heck! I loved every second of your special day and I’m so excited to see what adventures are in the next chapter of your love story. Cheers to you, Mr. & Mrs. Richter!
