Christmas Time is here once again and to say I’m excited would be an understatement. Christmas is my favorite holiday of all time and I seriously go all out. Not only have I decorated my new house to the max, but I also put up not one, not two, but THREE Christmas trees this year! Yes, I’m that serious about Christmas. I’m pretty sure Buddy the Elf was based off me and my Christmas cheer. Probably not, but my cheer is still pretty strong.
As much as I love Christmas decorating, I love gift giving even more. Every year I surprise all my wonderful couples with fun little customized gifts. This year my 2015 brides and grooms received something that means a lot to me. Over the years, I’ve slowly developed a love of cooking (this coming from the girl who used to only eat Mac and Cheese and Pizza Rolls.) I think cooking is such a beautiful way to bring people together and I wanted to share my new love for it with my clients. Each couple received a copy of The Newlywed Cookbook! My hope is that this book will bring them closer and give them something fun to do together, right in the comfort of their own home!
Each gift had a custom-made Christmas card attached with a personal message.
As an added bonus, they also received a personalized monogrammed wine topper! What’s cooking without a little wine?
In addition to my clients, I wanted to thank all the wonderful vendors and my second shooters/assistants that I worked with so much this year! For my vendors, I hand-delivered a bottle of champagne to their homes or places of business. What better way is there to celebrate them than with champagne?!
My second shooters and assistants also received fun little gifts and Starbucks gift cards because everyone needs coffee!
I wrapped all the gifts myself in this lovely vintage-inspired wrapping paper that I’m in love with! How cute is it?!
All gifts were delivered or mailed out (since so many of my wonderful couples live all over the country) right before Christmas so they can enjoy them over this holiday season. Hopefully, they start cooking up a storm and having a little fun together! I volunteer to be a taste-tester for whatever they make!
