Amanda and Bryan were married on a beautiful day at Windwood Equestrian. We met Amanda last year during the beginning planning stages of her wedding. I remember thinking how gorgeous her eyes were and how I couldn't wait to see her as a bride! The wedding took place at the School Barn where family and friends gathered to watch this adorable couple exchange vows. I remember asking Amanda to describe Bryan to me. She mentioned that he loved the outdoors and that definitely showed with his choice for a groom's cake. The couple welcomed guests into the reception where they wined, dined and partied the night away. I can truly say that Amanda and I will be friends for years to come! We grew extremely close during the planning process and I can't wait to see what the future holds for this couple! Congratulations and thank you for choosing Arden Photography to share this amazing day with you!
Kaci and Jordan are real life versions of Barbie and Ken! They both have that beautiful blonde hair and that perfect smile! Every single photo from this wedding was just as gorgeous as the next. Thanks to the wedding planning of I Do I Do, everything was perfect! The wedding took place in front of the School Barn at Windwood Equestrian. Guests gathered to watch the two lovebirds exchange vows on the anniversary of their grandparents wedding. This was such a touching moment as the two recognized the many many years of marriage between Kaci's grandparents. After the ceremony, the guests wined and dined while the newlyweds made a grand entrance. After a quick wardrobe change, the bride made her debut back on the dance floor with a cute little white halter dress. Kaci and Jordan made their grand exit through a tunnel of cheering fans! Congratulations to this amazing couple! We wish you many years of happiness together!
I remember the first time I met Emily and Joey. I immediately began to think about how tall and gorgeous their kids are going to be! This is probably one of the sweetest and most beautiful couples that I've ever met! Their wedding seemed to get here overnight! It seemed like yesterday when we photographed their engagement portraits and now their officially married! We absolutely love all of our brides and Emily is no exception! She was the picture perfect bride and the entire wedding party couldn't have been more fun! Thanks to the team at M. Elizabeth Events, we had a fantastic day! Emily and Joey's Windwood wedding was the party of the decade! The weather was amazing, the guests were awesome and our couple of the day stole the show! All eyes were on this gorgeous pair as they danced the night away! Congratulations to Joey and Emily! We wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
We absolutely love when we have weddings that are featured on different blogs and publications. This week ,we're excited to announce that Katie and Lacy's Spring wedding is featured on The Knot! Amazing vendors and a wonderful bridal party are always the key factors in having a featured wedding! It really does take a team effort to make sure the day is perfect in every aspect of the word. From florals to photography, all vendors play a huge role in assuring that the entire planning process is a success. There are so many different things to think about when the planning starts but at the end of the day we all provide the best service possible and we hope for moments like this.

The day that I met Emily, I knew I wanted to be her photographer! She had the sweetest personality and we immediately clicked. This was one of those weddings where we basically spent the day hanging out and taking a few photos here and there. I didn't meet Rustin until the rehearsal dinner but I knew who he was before I was introduced. He was exactly the way Emily described him, charming and handsome; the perfect combination. I thought to myself "Wow, does she even know how lucky she is" and "Does he even know how lucky he is"? The wedding day was a replica of these two personalities; two beautiful people, two amazing stories and too much love to ever imagine! The day was filled with tears of joy, laughter and pure excitement as these two became one. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to have shared this day with Emily and Rustin! Congratulations to this sweet couple and I can't wait to see how your love story continues.
Today we're looking back at one of our favorite weddings of the year! Sarah and Jeremy's Windwood wedding was simply amazing. The day was filled with shades of blush and soft pinks. Thanks to Cece Designs, plush florals and beautiful decor surrounded us the entire day! Through custom doors, the couple exchanged their vows in the presence of family and friends. After the ceremony, guests were treated to a night of dancing and celebrating under the stars. Sarah wowed everyone by changing into a complete different wedding dress for her exit! The team at M. Elizabeth events deserves a round of applause for planning this flawless day! We're so happy for Sarah and Jeremy and thank you for letting us be part of this day!
With so many restaurants already and so many new restaurants that are on the horizon, it's no wonder that Birmingham has become one of the most amazing cities for food lovers! Today we're throwing it back to one of our favorite shoots ever-The Birmingham Best Bites Cookbook. We photographed almost 70 local restaurants for the cookbook that benefited the Birmingham Library. We were so fortunate for the opportunity to sample some of the best dishes in town. Here are a few of our favorites photos!
On a gorgeous Summer's day, Erin and Zack exchanged "I do's" at Windwood Equestrian in Pelham, Alabama. This sweet couple had an exciting day to remember that mirrored their personalities. Their picture-perfect day was filled with fun props, colors, and a bridal party to match. Not to mention, Erin's stunning gown took everyone's breath away-not just Zack's! They danced the night away with food, friends, and family, and finished the night off with an Alabama themed groom's cake and shaker exit. Congratulations Erin and Zack! Thank you so much for sharing your day with us!
I can't believe Summer is officially over! We've had such an amazing Summer wedding season and we're ending it on the highest note possible with Lyndal & Daniel's all white affair! Birmingham Country Club provided the perfect backdrop for beautiful pre-ceremony photos and Lyndal opposed tradition by allowing her bridesmaids to wear flowing white dresses that resulted in some of the most breath-taken photos all Summer. Elegant florals by Leah Hazzard and the team at Mariee Ami, truly made this wedding an event to remember. After the ceremony at Church of the Highlands, guests were invited back to the Country Club for a wonderful night of dancing. Congratulations Lyndal & Daniel!
It's not very often that we have the opportunity to photograph a wedding where we get to see our really good friends! I was so excited to spend the day with my friends from The Sonnet House and to shoot another amazing wedding there! Morgan and Patrick are probably one of the sweetest couples I've ever met. They wrote love letters to each other and decided to read them under the oak tree, which is one of my favorite places on the property. Morgan was absolutely beautiful in lace and pearls as she walked down the aisle to exchange vows with Patrick. After the ceremony, the couple cut into the an awesome cake that page homage to both Notre Dame and Alabama. I was so thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful day and I couldn't think of a better way to spend a Friday afternoon! Congratulations Morgan and Patrick!
The week before Heidi and Joel's wedding could be described as a pre-lude to Noah's Arc. It was the most rain the area had received all year. But, something remarkable happened- the morning of the wedding the rain stopped and we realized that we were surrounded by the most beautiful and greenest grass I've ever seen. Could this be Ireland? No, it was Windwood Equestrian but for a moment it could have been mistaken for the twin sister of the country with plush meadows and vibrant woodlands! It was the perfect backdrop for the perfect couple! This was such an enchanting evening and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day; a day filled with plenty of laughter, a Crimson Tide video highlight and one of the most popular bands around-Act of Congress. We are so thrilled to share a few of our favorite photos with you. Congratulations to Heidi and Joel!
It's always a pleasure photographing a wedding when you have personal connections to the couple. Well, there isn't anything more personal than photographing the wedding day of one of your cousins! What an amazing honor it was to shoot my cousin, Victoria's wedding. The intimate ceremony took place in the presence of family at Windwood Equestrian. Before the ceremony, we took advantage of our Equestrian surroundings by taking a few photos of Victoria with our beautiful white horses. It was such an ethereal moment! The bride, adorned with a rose-filled flower crown was simply radiant as she exchanged vows with her husband Kingsley. Congratulations Victoria and Kingsley! May the rest of your lives be as magical as your wedding day!
It’s Wednesday and my midweek craving for sweets has left me sifting through wedding cake images. It’s true…wedding cakes make me happy. From their simple beauty to the intricate details that some portray, each wedding cake I see amazes me. And let’s not forget how amazing they taste everytime!! I’ve pulled together a few that made me (and my tummy) smile just by glancing at them and I hope you enjoy!!
