If you're anything like me you want to keep the spirit and hang onto every bit of Christmas there is!  I ask you, what could be more apropos for us winter wonderland junkies than a Nutcracker themed wedding in all it's glory?  I absolutely love this backdrop that is Westfield's Marriot in Washinton D.C.  Captured so beautifully by Mila Jackson Photography, this styled shoot incorporates ballet, imagery from the story and professional dancers as the bride and groom.  Said the photographer about this shoot:
 "This was a collaborative effort by all involved from beginning to end.  Dedication and hard work are evident in every detail--the individual hand-crafted invitations and stationary, hand painted details, real art decor of the venue, design of the cake and gorgeous bridal gown."
 Extra kudos go out to this fascinating group of wedding pros who not only gave us a good dose of Christmas but wedding inspiration as well . . . .
