Sophisticated Yuletide Wedding at Barista Parlor, Tennessee

Just because the holiday season has passed doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a little yuletide wedding fun! What a fantastic selection of floral arrangements centered around the theme of holly berries. The tarts had me longingly drooling for another hit of sugar from my post-Christmas dessert detox. In addition, I just love the DIY friendly boutonnieres made from holly berries, foliage, and mini pinecones all wrapped in a neat little burlap bundle.

Today’s wedding + couple have style, sophistication, and a sense of seasonal decor that is right on the money!

Comments from the Sarah Sidwell Photography

“Alicia + Everett were married just before Christmas on December 20th, 2015, yet amidst all the conflicting colors and themes of the month, they managed to create a truly stylish, creative and authentic day, and one to stand out against countless holiday events.

“One of the elements we love most about this wedding is the coffee as a central theme; it brought together Alicia and Everett’s styles in the most creative way. Whether from their Bride + Groom session at Nashville-local Barista Parlour, to the coffee-and-desert reception, to the coffee-bean favors it’s clear a love of the classic drink was instrumental in bringing these two together!”

“The groom brought no less style to the day, from his non-traditional suit choice of tailored gray plaid with forest green necktie, to his classy statement watch and groomed beard!”

“We’re also obsessed with the bride’s stunning hair masterpiece, which really brought home the editorial-style vibe of the day when paired with snowy furs and the backless lace gown. The maroon and gold holly berries in the flower crown were a styled dream!”

“The coffee-bean vendor, Frothy Monkey on 12th South, was the first local coffee shop Alicia + Everett went to for a date. They walked there from Belmont and it was the first time they held hands.”
