{Real Military Winter Wedding} Christian & Aaron

SO very much to admire in this military, winter wedding! A lovely Bride with the biggest, prettiest smile.  A handsome Groom in uniform.  A black & white color palette, beautifully accented with deep reds, oranges & purples.  Everything done well on a budget.  Take a peek at the great photos from Chi Photography of Charleston:

Christian & Aaron became husband & wife on a sunny January day in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.        Their wedding was not only beautiful but affordable.  The Bride saved money by carefully choosing vendors, borrowing things like her cathedral veil & buying her wedding invitations & other stationery from Vista Print.  Not to mention the savings from getting married in an off-season wedding month like January.  Some great budget-friendly ideas!

After the Bride & Groom said "I Do!" in a traditional church ceremony, they took part in the military tradition of the Arch of Swords Ceremony.  The Bride & Groom exited the church, greeted by soldiers forming an arch with their swords.  The last two bearers crossed their swords to block the Bride & Groom's way.  Only after the Bride & Groom kissed were the crossed swords lifted, allowing the Bride & Groom to pass under the sword arch!  The following reception was fun, fun, FUN!  Lots of dancing & lots of mugging with the funny photo props.  Just look at those serious military men goofing around with hats & masks!    
My Favorite Detail:  The Bride's vibrant bouquet is stunning, just absolutely stunning.

My Favorite Moment: The military Arch of Swords Ceremony following the marriage ceremony.  Such a great honor & tradition!
Congratulations, Christian & Aaron!
