Meet Mr. & Mrs. Young! Ian and Olivia had the most incredible Christmas Wedding at The Gaines Estate in Fayetteville, WV.

A little backstory for you: I actually taught Ian in children’s church when he was a kid so it was an absolute honor for me to serve him and Olivia on their wedding day. Friends, this was one of the most precious weddings I’ve ever had the honor of capturing.

Ian and Olivia love each other, but their love for The Lord was a centerpiece of this wedding day. They honored each other well and pointed an entire room of people to worship together with them during their ceremony….and you guys you are NOT prepared for the sweet images from their ceremony. Get those tissues ready!

The Gaines Estate in Fayetteville, WV is an absolutely beautiful venue! This particular wedding took place in December so we took advantage of all the gorgeous interior areas to take portraits. The Gaines Estate also has several picturesque places for an outdoor ceremony and plenty of outdoor portrait spaces as well!

Scroll on to see some of my favorites from Ian and Olivia’s Christmas Wedding at The Gaines Estate! Of particular note is Ian’s face when he saw Olivia coming down the aisle (a moment I will remember as one of the best reactions from a groom), you don’t want to miss it!
