Kourtney + Chad


I love how winter has this calming stillness that allows for the deepest of quiet contemplation... as long as you don't lose your fingers to the cold! Hands down, winter weddings are some of my favorite to be a part of. Everyone dresses up so nice, and it always feels like a grand affair. The wedding of Kourtney and Chad was no exception. It was, in a word, magical.


University Heights Baptist Church's halls were completely decked for Christmas. Festive wreaths, ribbon, and trees lined the architecture and fixtures setting the stage for a warm, welcoming ceremony. The real celebration kicked off at the Gillioz Theater that night. The historical beauty of the theater echoed that magical motif, and the blue, white and silver of the reception reflected a charming winter wonderland that most people only get the chance to dream about.


Nor does everyone find a love like Kourtney and Chad have for each other. The way he looks at her, with the utmost adoration, touches me every time I see it. Usually that is one of my favorite looks, the way a groom looks at his bride; however, Kourtney has the uncanny ability to look right back at her groom with a glowing grin that lights up his face. These two are perfect for each other, they have so much fun together, and it was an absolute joy getting to be a part of their perfect day.
