Andrew & Katherine: Kingsmill Winter Wedding Williamsburg

Wedding photographers call November-March the “off season.” Why? Because generally people don’t want to have weddings in the winter when it’s cold. But that doesn’t mean that no one ever does. I, personally, love winter weddings. Matt and I got married in mid-November! So when Andrew and Katherine told me about their December wedding, I was totally excited.

Deep burgundy with accents of gold and silver along with the beautiful Kingsmill Christmas decor made this wedding pop from beginning to end. So beautiful and perfect for winter! 
I loved spending the day with Katherine and Andrew and about 250 of their closest friends! They had a grand celebration that I’m sure will be talked about for some time. 🙂

It took me all morning to narrow down my favorites to share today, so be prepared for picture overload.

Enjoy lots of my favorites from their day! 

First look time! This one had an “epic” feel because of the staircase. I love how these turned out. Thanks for walking up those stairs, Katherine! Haha.

Favorite! So sweet.

Probably an all-time favorite here. Love their expressions!

Katherine’s veil was amazing.

What a good looking group!

Ceremony time.

The groom sang a few praise songs with his church band. How cool!


It had been cloudy all day, but the sun came out right as the sun was setting. That sky is amazing.


Both of these have a classic-romantic feel that I am in love with!

The Kingsmill venue was beautiful.

Andrew and Katherine had such cute details. I loved their ornament place cards!

Andrew & Katherine, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wedding day!

A huge thank you goes out to Naomi of La Belle Photography for being my second shooter. You were a life saver, girl!
