Red Gallery Photography's Clay Justice captured the most beautiful moments in this winter wedding.

Winter's New Year's Eve 2017 was absolutely gorgeous with fresh snow and bright sunshine. 

Erica was a ray of sunshine that morning.  She arrived with her bridesmaids and was bubbly & ready for the best day ever. 


Erica's wedding prep took place at her aunt's house in Upper Arlington.  Her aunt hosted everyone quite effortlessly and was quite fun herself. 


Red Gallery website: "We take an artistic, documentary approach to photographing weddings. We want to capture everything- the excitement before the ceremony, the happy tears as you walk down the aisle, laughing with your friends on the dance floor, and everything in between. We get the real moments and enjoy mixing in a few of our artistic ideas as well.  Our work has been featured in The Knot (national and local), 100 Layer Cake, Style Me Pretty, Columbus Bride, I Do, Town & Country, Wedding Chicks, Rock n Roll Bride, Capital Style, and Columbus Monthly."

The wedding prep included Erica, the beautiful bride, 6 bridesmaids (including her two sisters and sorority friends), and 2 mothers (her mother and her soon-to-be mother in law).  


The beauty routines began that morning with makeup set up at the table and hair styling set up at the bar.  Their hairstyles included a couple of low, loose updo's.  The rest of the ladies requested half up hairstyles.  They were all gorgeous and ready to go in plenty of time.  


After they were finished with hair and makeup, they gathered at the dining room table to eat a lunch together.  Erica's aunt prepared wedding soup for them.  


Then it was time to get dressed and head to the church.
