I love it when a bride is caught off guard and it creates a magical moment. My photo of the week is from Sarah and Jordan's amazing wedding at Alys Beach. Sarah was actually waiting on one of her bridesmaid's for a photo when someone said something that captured her attention. The photos that captivate me the most, are the ones where you become lost in the actual image. Even though her eyes are not directed towards me, there is a certain softness and innocence that actually takes you back to that perfect Saturday; to that exact location at the exact moment. I am in love with this photo!
A winter chill might be settling in the air, but you'll warm to these beautiful fall beach wedding photos. This destination wedding was held in Fairhope, Alabama at The Grand against the backdrop of the Gulf coast and a breathtaking southern sunset. This elegant affair hosted a bevy of romantic details with pops of pink and purple. Mother Nature was in complete alliance as the Spanish moss filled with Monarch butterflies that floated down to kiss the bride's bouquet. The couple included a tree watering ritual in the ceremony - a perfect addition to the trees surrounding the altar. Katherine and Ryan walked hand in hand down the beach boardwalk to share a private moment after becoming husband and wife, with a beautiful sunset in the background.
Candice & Fielding were married in June on the beautiful island of St. Barth's. The wedding celebration was filled with lots of fun with family and friends. The ceremony took place in the old church in town and then guests traveled back to the resort for the reception. Long seating tables were set inside with lots of flowers and candles and white paper lanterns--so beautiful! Once everyone enjoyed their meal, the couple and their guests danced the night away barefoot in the sand. The couple lit a lantern and set it off over the ocean to symbolize their new union. Afterwards, they were sent off by their friends and family down an aisle of sparklers. Candice & Fielding--from all of us at Arden Photography, we wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness!
