Gorgeous New Years Eve Wedding in Orange Beach, AL

On the way to Maritza & Grant’s wedding, I kept glancing at the sky and wondering how the day would unfold. It was windy, rainy, and overcast and the forecast didn’t show much change. Luckily for me, Maritza’s home had large windows and natural light which made her getting ready images beautiful despite the conditions. I highly recommend that brides have a getting ready space full of natural light for this reason!

The ceremony took place at St. Margaret’s of Scotland in Foley and it was amazing! Grant’s reaction to seeing Maritza was one of the sweetest moments of the day! After the ceremony, we had limited time to do the portraits and it began to POUR in the middle of the couple portraits. They were literally showered in good luck as we all sprinted to cover. I let Maritza know that we could always get back into her gown on a pretty day after the wedding for more couple portraits and we did that this week! You’ll notice the different location and lighting but I’m so glad she got the couple portraits she deserved at Bragg Mitchell Mansion! Here’s a few highlights of this gorgeous wedding day!

Modern, Chic New Orleans Wedding
 

Gosh, how can I sum up this awesome couple and family in a short blog post?! I met Veeh through her sister Cecile whose wedding I shot six months prior. Both of these brides have fantastic, modern style that was refreshing and exciting to capture! Veeh and Tien’s wedding day began with fizzy drinks and warm sunshine on a gorgeous October day. They had mass, followed by portraits under the mossy oak trees, and danced the night away at the La Maison Du Lac yacht club. Here’s a few favorites from their day!

Vibrant St. Paul's Episcopal Church Daphne, AL Wedding

Marie & Mile’s wedding fell on a drizzly day in September but the rain did not put a damper on their day! Marie has to be one of the most laid back brides of all time. It was so easy to work with her! Once we realized we would be working with rain, I got to work looking for spots that we could use that would keep her protected from the rain but still look like outdoor portraits. Thankfully the venue had various overhangs and porches so she was still able to get natural light portraits when it was raining! Here’s the highlights!

Venue: St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Daphne, AL

Stunning Farm Wedding in North Alabama

What a stunning wedding! Monica and Bear’s wedding took place on a farm in Northern Alabama on a warm, bright day in August. The day just had a ease to it without much fuss. Just good times all around! I absolutely loved the venue that has vintage cars onsite, cows that would “talk” to ya, and hidden gems like the room below that I used for her getting ready portraits. Here’s a few of my favorites:

Beautiful, Rainy Tuscaloosa Wedding Day
 

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!
