So glad to be finally showcasing this beautiful wedding. Annie and Taylor, along with their magnificent planner, Blair Gewin, threw a beautiful Southern Wedding in Fairhope, AL this spring and it was absolutely flawless. We hit it off with Annie right away (she is as sweet as southern pecan pie) and cannot wait to see them and watch their family grow for years to come. They’ve already started with their precious dog, Rue seen in the preparation photos. They did a first look at the Grand Hotel, Point Clear, with the ceremony taking place at sunset on Mobile Bay. Huge shout out to the owner, Mary Cane, of the beautiful private property near Bon Secour where the reception took place for hosting such a grand event.

The only thing more exciting than being hired by a great couple is shooting their wedding at your Alma Mater. As a graduate of Spring Hill College, it’s always like coming home when we get to work there. Anna and Jeb had a beautiful and fun-filled wedding surrounded by family and loved ones, many from Anna’s home state of Ohio. We started at the famous Battle House Hotel in downtown Mobile for her preparation before heading over to St. Joseph’s Chapel at Spring Hill for the ceremony, followed by the reception at Stewart Field.  Their families were so warm and such a pleasure to be around, and we can’t thank them enough for having us.

Fairhope Wedding Rehearsal Dinner – Point Clear Marriott

Brooke & Brandon’s rehearsal dinner was at the Grand Hotel Marriott Resort in Point Clear, Alabama. The Grand is known for their southern charm and hospitality. The grounds are gorgeous and the staff is some of the best in our area. The Ballroom was transformed into in a Bay Retreat and was full of beautiful details from driftwood art to oyster-covered candle vases.  The theme was chosen because it represented the groom’s favorite past time…………spending time, boating, fishing or just relaxing on Mobile Bay! The florist was Zimlich’s Patio and Garden/Elizabeth’s Garden, (owners and siblings Carol Reeves, Donald and Tommy Zimlich). Band was Trot Line, Lighting by Will Bridges (Willow Bridge), Cake designed by the Pastry Chef at the Grand Hotel. The Theme represented life on Mobile Bay, and all indigenous plant materials were used along with props like sails, kayaks, paddles, crab traps, buoys, even a Stauter Boat was brought in to finish out the theme. The head table was made into a wharf and a driftwood Bride and Groom was designed by the talented Zimlich’s. Oyster Shells were harvested from Mobile Bay and made into mirrored and vase table scapes by local artist Celia De Laney. Marriott’s Grand Hotel was the perfect setting as the guest watched the sunset before gathering for a sumptuous meal featuring local seafood and farm to table vegetables all created by Master Chef Mike Wallace.  Videography was covered by our good friends at Diva Productions!

The decor’ was breath-taking, the food was delicious, but the best part of the evening was the love and emotion. Both dads had us all crying, Brandon’s childhood friend has us laughing until we cried, and Brooke’s best friends had us giggling as they read an email from Brooke when she first met (and started to like) Brandon. After the crying and giggling were over, the band started and so did the dancing. These people can seriously dance….and they don’t stop!

Loved the boat paddle signature board! Tip: Use items like this that can be used as house decor’ for years to come!Loved the driftwood mannequins! The head table… Details were just so intricate all the way to the crab pots and driftwood garland. This is a working vintage coke machine and it is AWESOME!This might have been one of the funniest toasts ever!

There are so many events surrounding a wedding that we usually do not get to experience. There’s bridal showers, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, etc….. Let’s face it, the events leading up to the wedding day are a lot of fun. That’s why we are so thrilled when we get to be at some of the other events like this beautiful bridesmaids’ luncheon for Brooke and her ladies the day before her wedding. This luncheon took place at the beautiful Fairhope Inn in Fairhope, AL. In attendance were Brooke’s bridesmaids, along with some of her closest friends and family.  No details were left untouched with the silver goblets and embroidered napkins lining the tables along with the fresh Rosemary sprigs on the back of the chairs.  Gifts were given to the moms and grandmothers, while the bridesmaids received monogrammed pajamas and pearls for their sleepover party the following morning before the wedding. This luncheon was oozing with Southern Charm and hospitality. Enjoy!

You may remember this cute couple from their engagement session a couple of months ago. This is our second wedding with Brandon’s family, and we were so honored to get to know Brooke’s family this time as well. I only wish all of you reading this could be as lucky as we are to get to spend time with such an uplifting group of people. This is part 1 of their recent 3 day wedding celebration that we cannot wait to share.

Their festivities began on Thursday night at a private chapel in south Alabama on the family property. Brooke and Brandon were surrounded by their closest friends and loved ones for a blessing of their upcoming marriage. It was a very spiritual and uplifting event that was extremely moving to those who were there. What a wonderful way to kick off the weekend.

Those of you who follow our blog might notice that we don’t post a lot of B&W photos. We believe there is a certain way to use B&W like a tool, where the emotion or the story can be enhanced by avoiding the distraction all of the colors in a photo. This was one of those times where turning off the color really allows you to feel the emotion happening here…Our couple was whisked across the property afterwards in this classic Mustang to the stables for some more fellowship and a good ol’ Southern Barbecue. >
