I’ve come to love winter weddings so much because they are just so cozy and full of love! Mary Stewart & Thomas’ day was no different! When I met with these two last year for their pre-wedding meeting, I knew their day was going to be a gorgeous one. Mary Stewart & Thomas said their vows in the same church that her parents got married in, which is so special. After the ceremony, they danced the night away at The Cotton Room with all their friends and family. It was a party!!! We loved getting to be a part of their big day, and I would love to photograph more Cotton Room weddings in the future! The giant windows and exposed brick create such a beautiful atmosphere for a winter wedding reception.

The pretty pink of Mary Stewart’s bridesmaids’ dresses and the girls’ bouquets were the perfect match for The Cotton Room. And Mary Stewart’s gown! It was practically made for her! I was obsessed with the back of it and the lace details. Everyone looked so good all dressed up in their wedding day attire! One of the things I love about wedding days is getting to know the bride and groom’s wedding party. The wedding party is the couple’s closest friends, and it’s always a blast getting to spend time with them throughout the day. These two had such a fun group of friends!

And speaking of a fun group, Mary Stewart and Thomas’ guests knew how to party! It was such a blast getting to be a part of their night. Mary Stewart & Thomas hired Night Years as their reception band, and let me tell you — they were awesome!!! It was my first time working a wedding with them, and they seriously know how to keep the dance floor alive! They were the perfect choice for Mary Stewart & Thomas’s reception. I love Cotton Room weddings, and I will always remember Mary Stewart & Thomas’ day for how much fun these two have together and how much fun they had with their friends on their wedding day!
