You'll never be able to tell by seeing Maria's stunning bridal portraits that this Christmastime wedding was on one of the coldest days of the winter!  Maria's family worked diligently in the months before their wedding to convert the family barn into a gorgeous wedding venue and the outcome could not have been any more charming.  Maria's creative artwork and John's inspiring woodworking skills came into play making the table decorations and handmade chandeliers bring the whole theme together.  

We thoroughly enjoyed spending our day with Maria and John and their welcoming and down-to-earth family and friends!  Below are a few of our favorite photographs of the day - especially the ones of the hawk delivering the rings to the alter which was a first for us!
