While most of us are excited for fall, Charlee and Alec Barker’s modern Christmas wedding is sure to have you wishing for the cold weather! This love story started with Charlee following her now husband on Instagram because she thought he was cute. After a couple of years, Alec reached out to Charlee, and the rest was history. Every year on their first date this sweet couple celebrates their “first dateiversary,” and on the fourth year, Alec proposed at the ice skating rink where it all began. Don’t mind us, we’re just wiping our tears after that cute proposal story!
After their proposal, this sweet couple decided to continue their tradition and marry in the winter at The Grand Canadian Theater, and we are absolutely smitten. With the look of an old movie theater with a Hollywood glam feel, this venue fit the modern Christmas theme perfectly! After looking at the beautiful decor, this sweet bride got ready with her family and friends by having dance parties and makeovers. Her dress from Bella Rose Edmond was carefully slipped into and complemented the special ring, that was her late grandmother’s, perfectly! And we can’t not talk about how dapper the groom looked in his suit from The Wardrobe Modern Menswear! And as perfect as the bride and groom are, we could not be more stunned by these pictures taken by Susan Alyse Photography. From the smallest of details to their pictures of the newlywed couple, this photographer didn’t miss a beat! Keep scrolling to see why we’re wishing winter would come sooner!
As their wedding night came to an end, here’s what Charlee said was her favorite part of the day: “Seeing how happy our closest friends and family were. Everyone was laughing, smiling and dancing. It made me thankful we could be together and enjoy each other’s time.”
