hydrangeas, pearls, and lace…there’s nothing like a wedding in the south, and these five summer brides each wowed their guests with a delightful mix of southern hospitality and charm.
sara and john (douglas manor)
my favorite behind the scenes detail: john’s reaction to seeing sara walk toward him during their beautiful sunset wedding had all the girls swooning. he was so overcome with emotion, and the joy he felt at marrying his best friend was one of the sweetest things i’ve seen in my years of shooting weddings.
jennifer and alan (the tutwiler, bridgestreet gallery and loft)
my favorite behind the scenes detail: alan’s a total man’s man – a former rocker with a penchant for building some really awesome furniture – so the last thing i expected was for his biggest concern about his and jenn’s wedding day to be what he wore. nonetheless, that was top of his priority list so he hired remon’s to custom design a fabulous suit for him to wear on the day he married his gorgeous bride.
madison and hayden (samford university chapel, the florentine)
my favorite behind the scenes detail: hayden’s father was the officiant at their wedding, and at one point during their ceremony, he gave hayden a bible in which he’d spent years writing notes and documenting details about what the lord was teaching him during that time in his life. i truly can’t imagine a more valuable gift for a father to give his son on the first day of his beautiful marriage.
sydney and chase (the grand on foster, dothan, alabama)
my favorite behind the scenes detail: high school sweethearts have nothing on syd and chase! they were destined to be together after that fateful chat outside the lunchroom doors when she was just 14 years old. 😉
tomorrow we’re wrapping up this look back on the weddings of 2015 with my favorite time of year…FALL weddings!!!
