Julie and Jake were married on a sparkly New England December day, and while it was frosty, it was a day filled with warmth and love. This wedding had warm wonderful families, a couple head over heels in love, beautiful Christmas colors, a family home with decades of history, amazing food, Christmas trees and sparkly lights—the only thing missing was snow, but even a beautiful white snow cover couldn’t have made this day shimmer any more than it already did.
Julie’s mom and dad were married at this beautiful spot nearly 40 years ago.
Looking through these photos tonight puts me ever more squarely in the Christmas mood than they did just a few weeks ago at the wedding. While this is definitely time I have ever set a wedding slideshow to Christmas music, this is also the first wedding I’ve been to with Victorian carolers and Santa, so it certainly seemed to fit.
Sparkle and shimmer and holiday decor–no cake could have been more perfect for this wedding than this one from Massachusetts’s famous Konditor Miester.
And no family party at The Ledges would be complete without a rousing game of toss the hat! Thanks to my sidekick Nicki Pardo for this amazing shot, along with so many others!

So join me in wishing for a white Christmas for Julie and Jake on their first married Christmas…and may all your Christmases be white!
Happy love, Julie and Jake!
