Today’s shoot hit home for me, and I’m sure it will for many of you newlywed gals, too! With the help of an adorable real couple, Taylor and Andrew, Stephanie Scholl Events and Ally King Photography set out to capture some of the moments that make a first married Christmas extra special. We do our best at Southern Weddings to help y’all to focus on preparing for your marriage while planning your wedding, and if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by seating charts and centerpieces right now, I hope you’re encouraged knowing that there are sweet holiday celebrations like this one to look forward to!

From Stephanie Scholl Events:
Our models, the Lovettes, are a real couple getting ready to celebrate their first married Christmas, and we captured the new and old traditions they’re making together in their home. Taylor introduced Andrew to her grandmother’s famous oatmeal chocolate chip raisin cookies, a recipe that has been made in her family each and every Christmas for decades. Wrapping Christmas presents together and sending their first married Christmas cards is a new tradition for this little family, and they can’t wait to send notes of love and joy around the country to their family and friends. And what’s Christmas without decorating your first Christmas tree? The Lovettes adorned their tree with family heirloom glass ornaments and fresh cranberries, topped off with their “first married Christmas” ornament they received as a wedding present! Sharing family traditions with each other, as well as creating new traditions of their own, makes their first married Christmas even more special.
