Lauren Harano

Last Christmas, Carlyn Bradarich and Patrick Schiller had the winter wedding of their dreams. The former Miss Iowa pageant winner and ex-NFL player celebrated their special day in Aurora, IL, at the industrial-chic event space Company 251 and surrounded by those closest to them. The winter wedding featured tasteful nods to the season with crimson-colored flowers, bright twinkly trees, and gorgeous green decor that filled the venue with subtle Christmas cheer. The bride was dressed in a modern white gown with a single string of pearls strung around her neck, along with an elegant veil that flowed down her back. Patrick sported a custom-made suit with the date of their wedding (12/7/2019) inscribed on the inside, as well as a sleek white suit that he changed into after the ceremony to match his new bride. Complete with cupcakes and Champagne, along with the traditional milk and cookies, every detail of their wedding was tastefully thought out, making this celebration a dream come true.

From the bride's first steps down the aisle to the cutting of the cake, the love that these two share for each other could be felt by everyone in attendance. The wintry details perfectly captured the romance of the season, and made Carlyn and Patrick's wedding one to remember for Christmases to come. Take a look at the most moving moments (including a tearjerking first look) from this luxurious winter wedding, ahead.
