Jarred & Rebecca

Dec 11, 2017

Christmas Marriott Wedding  | Visalia, California

Christmas time is already a special time of year but add in a sweet couple’s wedding, and suddenly an event became even more magical! Jarred and Rebecca’s Christmas Wedding was filled with joyful excitement that their big day was finally here! The Visalia Marriott at the Convention Center was a lovely host. From the freshly remodeled rooms, to the beautiful Christmas tree in the lobby, to the beautifully decorated reception hall, this venue was the perfect backdrop. Jesse from JJblooms, designed and decorated an elegant Christmas, spotlighting the dance floor with pine branches!

Rebecca looked beautiful in a cream lace dress. I didn’t realize until after the reception that her beautiful lace capped sleeves were actually removable! How cool is that! Like two dresses in one! Rebecca’s bouquet non-traditional Christmasy bouquet filled with Red Peonies, roses, and hints of pines! LOVE IT!! So fun to see what couples come up with when they personalize their wedding day, from bouquets, to bridesmaids in plaid shirts, to sapphires in engagement ring…makes the day even more special.

Rebecca opted to follow tradition and not see Jarred before the ceremony but she did do a first look with her son! So sweet!!! Jarred treats her son with respect and love and included him through out the whole day including the ceremony. I wish this new little family a lifetime of happiness together.
