Happy two year anniversary to Lyndal and Daniel! We can't believe it has been two years since this beautiful couple tied the knot! The two were wed on a gorgeous summer day at Church of the Highlands Chapel were they shared their intimate vows in front of their closest family and friends. We loved Lyndal's choice for an all white color palette. Her style was so elegant and classic, you just couldn't help but fall in love with the day! We always love working with Mariee Ami's team, and they insured that the day went flawlessly. Their reception at the Birmingham Country Club was a celebration for the books! Dancing and tambourines made for an unforgetable night, no one could just stay sitting! Congratulations Lyndal and Daniel! We wish you all the best and many more the come!

Kisses in the Trees

Engagement photoshoots are some of my favorites! They get everyone excited about the wedding day to come, and the photos are fun to share with all your loved ones and future guest! I have loved getting to know the Natalie and Evan before their big day, and they were so natural in front of the camera. Natalie is going to make a beautiful bride, and we are so excited for their special day. Their wedding this fall just can't come soon enough! 

Jessie and John Cameron's Wedding

We can not believe it has been one month since Jessie and John Cameron's wedding! Jessie and John Cameron were one of those couples you could just tell they were meant to be together. They were inseparable, and when they looked at each other you knew they were in love. They were married at Windwood on a gorgeous June day, and it was the perfect day for a wedding. The farm was looking more beautiful than ever thanks to Susan Huff and Beth Jordan who provided the gorgeous floral arrangements. Jessie and J.C. had an intimate ceremony at the school barn and a reception to follow up at the courtyard where guests enjoyed music and dancing for the night. Guests snapped photos all night in the photo booth, and the cake from Joe's Italian was, of course, one of our personal favorites of the night! Happy one month of marriage from Arden Photography! We wish you all the best!

Hollace and J.R.'s Wedding: Arden Photography

There are some weddings that rainy days just can not dampen, and this was one of them! The rain stopped just in time for Hollace and J.R.'s ceremony at the school barn, and it could not have been more perfect. We loved getting to know this couple throughout our time with them! Hollace and J.R.'s beautiful day was full of all the gorgeous details thanks to Hothouse Design Studio! We love a day full of pastels and lanterns, and that is just what Hollace and J.R.'s day was! Thanks to our friends at HotHouse Design Studio, Windwood was looking even more beautiful with all of the beautiful centerpieces and decor! Kathy G. Catering never disappoints, of course, and the guests could not stop raving! Hollace and J.R., thank you for allowing us to be apart of such a special day, we wish you all the best!

The bride has the spotlight on the wedding day, just as it should be, but sometimes the groom needs a little attention too! The groom typically has an opinion about certain aspects of the day, and one of them is usually his attire. One way the groom can make it all his own is with his cuff links! This groom loved everything outdoors, and we could tell! We loved these, and thought they added to the groom's own unique style! 

Savannah and Chris: Borrowed and Blue Feature

Congratulations to Savannah and Chris on their Borrowed and Blue feature! They were such a sweet couple, and we were so honored to be a part of their day! We thought their wedding was a special one, and apparently Borrowed and Blue thought so too! A vendor dream team came together for their farm wedding at Windwood, and it was the perfect summer wedding! Kalee Baker Events made sure the day went off without a hitch, and the day could not have gone more smoothly. Guests were treated to delicious cake from Pen and Pastry, and it was a huge hit! We are always grateful when our work is published, and congratulations again to everyone who was a part of Savannah and Chris' special day! 

Check out their feature here!

Every little girl dreams of the perfect wedding dress. The one that twirls just the right way while you dance the night away. Growing up my mom and I would always watch 'Say Yes to the Dress' and loved seeing what dress each blissful bride chose for her day. The classic "saying yes to the dress" has now stuck and is here to stay. We love to see what each bride says, "YES!" to, and how it reflects her personal style. This lighting was perfect for this bride's farm wedding, and she was stunning in her dress!

Happy Wednesday! We love the sweet photos of the bride and groom right after they are married, and this one in particular captures the perfect time of day! Sunflowers showed this bride's personality perfectly. Her flower crown along with the sunset made for a beautiful southern wedding at Windwood Equestrian

Frannie and Josh: Arden Photography

We knew Frannie and Josh would be a special couple when Josh said he was from Ireland! They were married at Windwood on a beautiful spring day in March. Their choice not the have a "first look", but instead to exchange notes before the ceremony made the day extra special and intimate. They made the day so easy with their lighthearted humor and laughter. We always look forward to tasting the cake, and Magic Muffins did not disappoint! We loved being apart of their day, and we wish you the best, Frannie and Josh!

Happy {Late} National Doughnut Day! We hope you embraced the national holiday, and grabbed a doughnut {or two} for yourself! It is always a fun when couples have a little something different instead of a groom's cake, and doughnuts are a trend that we are big fans of!  This doughnut wall from We Have Doughnuts, provided some fun decor as well as delicious doughnuts!

Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but everyone knows that a great pair of shoes are the next best thing. You know your friendship with someone is a match made in heaven when you discover you wear the same shoe size, and we just made me asking to borrow these from Kaci! These feminine pumps were the perfect addition to her spring wedding, and showcased her personality perfectly. Treat yourself to a fun pair of shoes! 

Walking Into the Weekend Like....

We love our couples and as hard as it is to believe we are starting to get to know our 2018 brides. Jamie is such a fun future Mrs. Henderson.

Abbie and Dawson: Arden Photography

Happy 1 month anniversary (plus a couple days) to Abbie and Dawson! They wed on the most beautiful April day at one of our favorite Birmingham Church's Altadena Valley Presbyterian Church. Over the years we have grown closer to the newlyweds and we could not help but look back and share some favorite highlights from their special day. Abbie's dress from Ivory & White portrayed her style perfectly for her special day. Lillie Jane's gorgeous flowers were the perfect touch to this chic bride's style. The reception at the Birmingham Country Club provided guests with delicious food, and lively entertainment from Nationwide Coverage. Every wedding we look forward to trying to the cake, and Magic Muffins did not disappoint. As always, it was delicious and provided guests with the perfect sweet treat for the evening. We were so thrilled to be apart of the Abbie and Dawson's day, and we wish them a very happily ever after!

Maestro's Ball 2016: Arden Photography

We're always excited when this time of year comes around.  The Maestro's Ball was held on Friday night and Arden Photography was front and center.  We absolutely love photographing this event because every year  the tent always holds a huge surprise for us.  Sybil Sylvester of Wildflower Designs, definitely outdid herself this year!  The florals were absolutely amazing and thanks to the team at Event Rentals Unlimited, the tent was just as fabulous!  Chris Hastings started the dinner with his famous tomato salad. The Maestro's Ball benefits the Alabama Symphony Orchestra and guests are treated to a concert before the party begins!  This year, there was an after party held at the Alumni House.   Here are a few of my favorite photos from the night!  There were so many great moments and we're already counting down until next year's event!  For more photos, click the link below!
