Emily & Bubba | River Market Tuscaloosa Wedding
 

Emily & Bubba's bright, sunny wedding day was one I could never forget! I actually met Emily last year when she was a bridesmaid for another wedding I shot. I was so excited to work with her again because she literally has the sweetest group of friends ever! Speaking of friends, Emily & Bubba had close to 30 people in their bridal party! It was the largest party I've worked with but they made it so easy that it didn't feel like herding cats, haha! There was SO many amazing moments from their day. Here's a few of my favorite moments from their day! 

Emily's bridesmaid reveal was precious! Tears & cheers!

As sweet as their reaction was, her father & brother first look made everyone in the room cry!

After setting up for the ceremony, I went to check in on Emily and was SO lucky to catch this moment of prayer before she walked down the aisle.

When it was go time and the mothers of the bride and groom were called to line up, they were PUMPED! So cute! 

Y'all.. Bubba seeing Emily was everything.

Then it was time to party!

Brooke & Nick | Mobile Alabama Wedding at Hermitage Rippy

Brooke & Nick felt more like friends than clients by the time I shot their wedding! We worked together for their engagement session and also for Brooke's bridal session. During their engagement session, Nick kept me laughing the entire time.. this guy is a mess! Their wedding took place at the beautiful Hermitage Rippy estate on a warm, May day. We lucked out and had a beautiful, sunny day without any rain! They said their vows under the oak trees and then danced the night away until it was time for their sparkler exit! Here's a few highlights from their day.

Teresa & Justin | Orange Beach Wedding at Coastal Arts Center

Teresa & Justin's warm, sunny wedding day was held at the Coastal Arts Center in Orange Beach. Teresa reminded me of my wedding because we both left out some of the normal traditions for a more enjoyable experience. Some brides thrive surrounded by 15 of their closest friends as bridesmaids. Some brides like Teresa forgo bridesmaids all together and want their friends to celebrate instead of standing. Either way, it's awesome that couples are doing their own thing and not worrying about traditions that do not suit their taste. Teresa & Justin also skipped a wedding cake and had a delicious dessert tower that everyone loved! Here's some highlights from my day!

Mitzi & Eric | Mobile Alabama Wedding Photography at Gulf Quest Museum

Mitzi & Eric's was held at the Gulf Quest Museum in downtown Mobile.  I was so excited to work with Mitzi from the moment I met her at the consultation because she has a beautiful, kind spirit and air to her!  When I arrived, she had thoughtfully set up all her bridal details and hung her dress up! You could definitely tell she's the daughter of a fellow wedding photographer, haha. True to Mobile, the rain came right before her ceremony but luckily she had a indoor venue option so it all worked out beautifully! Here's a few of my favorite from their day!

Ali & Mike | Vintage New Orleans Wedding at Compass Point

What. A. Fun. Wedding! 

Ali & Mike's wedding was unlike any wedding I've shot. I knew from the moment I walked into the bridal suite that it was going to be a great day as the girls were already in a conga line! Their wedding took place under the beautiful oaks at Compass Point in New Orleans. Ali made sure that her wedding was authentic and fun by incorporating things like a lottery ticket bouquet for the bouquet toss and her grandma's were flower girls! My heart couldn't take the cuteness! The craziest thing happened as we were getting ready for their second line parade down to the ferry. Spontaneous fireworks. It added such a magical element to the ending of their evening. Once we rode the ferry across, they continued their celebration in the French Quarter. Here's some of my favorites of their day!
