      White twinkle lights and Christmas decorations. Morgan and Patrick were married just a few days before Christmas; their church and their reception venue, The Mansion, were glittering with ornaments and rustling with real fir.

      Theirs was a cross-cultural wedding, with sprinkles of Indian customs interspersed throughout. But what was most striking about Morgan and Patrick’s winter wedding was the warmth of their families and the liveliness of their friends. The Mansion was a beautiful backdrop and there was nary a dry eye in the house during the traditional dances.

      I am so, so excited to share my last big wedding of 2014 here on the blog with you. Stay tuned for my 2014 best-of wrap-up which will be happening very soon! On to the photos…
