The city of Birmingham has often been described as a diamond in the rough. From it's historical landmarks, amazing restaurants and southern hospitality; it's one of those places that will never rid itself of the charm and appeal that keeps people coming back. I love it when our couples use the city as a backdrop for their engagement photos. Adrienne and William will be married this summer and we were so excited to spend the afternoon with them on Morris Avenue. This street, aligned with it's brick roads, is a favorite of visitors and residents of the city. We had such an amazing day with Adrienne and William and we couldn't be more pleased with their photos. Here are a few of our favorites!
Casey and Matt's wedding day was one filled with small details that made the event so big. From the strand of pearls, to the bouquets hanging beneath the altar, and the wine glass center pieces, nothing was amiss. While the ceremony was classic and beautiful, don't let that fool you! This couple was one that knew how to have fun as well! Their reception, with all its beautiful touches, was also filled with dancing, laughter, and bottles of champagne bubbles!
Weddings are celebrations, parties filled with laughter, dancing, and love. Each couple is different though, and they all celebrate in different ways. Claire and John? They were party animals! And wow - was this one fun wedding and reception! There was never any doubt about that though as this couple was one for the books: sweet, kind, and a whole lot of good time! Claire had incorporated many beautiful details from the rich red bouquet, the garland wreath above their nuptials, the deer antlers on the groom's cake, and of course, the glow stick accessories at the reception! DJ CoCo played house music, they inflated a giant whale pool toy, brought out the broomsticks turned make-shift guitars - add it all up, and it makes for one unforgettable wedding!
It was a sweet September afternoon at Windwood Equestrian when Laura glided around the corner to see Zechariah for the first time. They were all smiles as he asked her to twirl around for him in her dress. She wore flowers in her hair, and a veil that would catch in the wind. They married beneath an altar her father built, complete with garlands of flowers and a dainty chandelier - absolute romance filled the late summer air. Dancing ensued late into the night, and the couple made their exit through flowing ribbons and cheers!
Morgan & Drew's wedding in May was a celebration to remember! The two wed in a ceremony at the Country Club of Birmingham with a reception following. Of course every detail was planned out with the expertise of Mariee Ami Wedding Planning Studio. Morgan glowed with the look of love all day long and her blue eyes truly sparkled. After the intimate ceremony, the party really began. We had so much fun at this reception--everyone there was dancing! Congratulations to Morgan and Drew!
Charlotte & John Michael will be married at the Advent in December. After a weekend of pre-wedding activities including an amazing engagement party, the couple met me at the Botanical Gardens for their engagement portraits. We had such a great time laughing, joking and shooting a few pictures here and there. Congratulations Charlotte & John Michael! December is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited for you!
