Hannah is one of the kindest brides I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know. This warm day in April presented itself with crinkled eyes, joy-filled tears, and a rebirth of this sweet couple’s love as characterized by the spring season. After the ceremony, the newlyweds were constantly grinning cheek to cheek at each other, so much so that I feel that was all I was able to capture. No complaints from here, though! Happiness and laughter is always welcome at Windwood Equestrian. Tummies were kept filled to the brim with yummy foods from Happy Catering and a beautiful white wedding cake with delicate rose detailing from Barb’s Cakes. The lovely couple were sent off with well wishes and a light show of multi-colored glowsticks waving them off to their next destination.
The beginning of April was met with this sweet bride that brought free-spirited laughter and eye-smiles to everyone at Windwood Equestrian in her wake. Jamie exuded timeless class and enthusiasm throughout her wedding day, as expected of a former Miss Alabama. The flowers from Bloom & Petal chosen for this special day exemplified her kind and bright demeanor that brought smiles to even the most stubborn of faces as she made her way down the aisle. People are wise when they say true beauty is created from the inside out and thus radiates to others. Loving kisses were shared from the final moments of their ceremony, in front of their wedding cake with a non-traditional drip design from Joe’s Italian, and up until the newlyweds departed. Arden Photography extends a huge congratulations to Jamie and Alex for not only allowing us to share these precious moments with them, but also bringing joy to our hearts throughout the day.
The end of March was approaching for Windwood Weddings, but this precious couple was beginning their lifelong journey of love and happiness. Bouquets filled with white and light pink roses complimented the bridesmaid’s dresses and the blushing cheeks of the soon-to-be Mrs. Harris. Nervous giggles and wandering eyes were continuously present during their first look. I’ll let you in on a little known fact of Windwood: our Lady Bank roses that bloom during the last week in March to the middle of April make for the perfect backdrop for wedding photos i.e. the arbor the wedding party is standing in front of for pre-ceremony pictures, especially to capture the springtime feel on your special day. When the, what felt like, long-awaited ceremony occurred, a collective sigh of contentment was ebbing from the newlyweds. This contentment grew to pure joy as the couple serenaded the crowd with their first dance and shared tastes of their wedding cake. The night ended as if your favorite sports team just won with shaking poms lined across the walkway as the Harris’s were off to their honeymoon destination.
Jeannie and Ryan were wed on a lovely day in March. The Spring sun warmed our backs as the love we witnessed between them warmed our hearts. Each wedding we photograph has an element of tradition and elements that make them personalized to the couple. We loved the Alabama Cake from “Cakes by Jan” even though this wasn’t our favorite Tuscaloosa team’s year at National Championship we all love a diehard fan. Nothing says fan like eating Alabama Cake. All the guest’s belly’s were as full as there heart’s because Happy Catering knows how to feed a crowd. As guests enjoyed the evening and danced into the night with music by Feel the Beat Entertainment, our sweet friend Danny Brewer, we all enjoyed ourselves and this first Spring 2018 wedding for Windwood Weddings and Arden Photography.
The image of a happy pair of newlyweds waving to friends and family as they escape in a car sporting sentiments written in shaving cream and trailing tin cans down the street is understandably, a classic one. Today, options abound for couples looking to cap off their unforgettable evening in an equally unforgettable way.
Lavender, when substituted for rice or birdseed, makes for an aromatic and naturally colorful confetti. If lighting up the night is more your style, consider sparklers or glow sticks. Classic cars also serve as great conversation starters and fit any black tie affair to a tee.
In short, a grandiose exit may not be necessary in actualizing every wedding, but the end of a wedding always means the beginning of a new life for two people dearly beloved by all of their attendees.
Happy One Year of marriage to Kyndle and Kirby!
A quick sneak peak of Larkin and Garrett's special day! These two were picture perfect for their magical day, and we can't wait to share more!
It's no doubt that the young ones always seem to steal the show on wedding day, and what can we say?... They are too cute not to! How adorable are these little ones! They looked like little fairies on this summer day and we loved it! Some tulle and ballet flats are the perfect pair for an adorable flower girl!
Happy Monday from Arden Photography!

Wendy and Shane were married one year ago on a perfect day at First Lutheran Church. The couple's simple and classic style was perfect for the June wedding day, and the timeless feel of the day was accompanied by an intimate ceremony full of close family and friends.
They adorable couple danced and dined at Windwood Equestrian for their reception, where guests enjoyed a surprise appearance of "Phoenix", the farm's miniature pony! Congratulations Shane and Wendy!! We wish you a lifetime of happiness and laughter from Arden Photography!

We wish you all the best from Arden Photography!
My favorite thing about Jamie when I first met her to talk about her wedding day was her confident, girly style. I loved that she wanted to incorporate that all throughout her details from her color palette and even to her bridesmaids' dresses! When everything came together on the wedding day, everything could not have looked more perfect! The couple was so photogenic, they were the picture perfect bride and groom!
Congratulations Jamie and Alex!
How gorgeous do Hannah and Mckinley look in this shot right after their first look? Stay tuned for more of this adorable couple!
Two years ago we had the priviledge photographing these two on their special day, and boy was it a dream! With the white on white decor and sweet treats, we did not want the day to end! Thank you for letting us be apart of your day and we wish you many years of laughter!
Congratulations, Maye and Clark, we wish you many more from Arden Photography!
Jeannie and Ryan were wed on a gorgeous spring day at the farm. The weather could not have been more perfect, and Jeannie looked absolutely stunning. Jeannie and Ryan exchanged vows at the school barn in front of their closest friends and family. As soon as they were pronounced husband and wife, we took some priceless photos of just the two of them of their first couple minutes as a married couple! The couple and their guests spent the rest of the night dancing the night away with Feel the Beat Entertainment. Guests enjoyed a delicious menu from Happy Catering, and my personal favorite part of the night... the cake! Jan O'Donnell provided two gorgeous cakes for the couple and they were delicious!
Congratulations Jeannie and Ryan! We loved being a part of your day and wish you all the best from Arden Photography!
