When we got the first call for this wedding, we knew it was going to be something special. Claire and Paul were planning a December wedding at my Alma Matter, St. Joseph Chapel at Spring Hill College in Mobile, followed by the reception at the luxurious Marriott Grand Hotel in Point Clear, AL. The always fabulous Cynthia Zipperly of Mobile was the wedding designer and Grace & Serendipity complimented her vision with some beautiful paper products and logos along with the stunning floral work by Dennis Harris of Zimlich the Florist. Add some Betty Weber Cake and this was one stunning ballroom.
We got to know Claire’s dad well before the wedding because he was so involved which is just an awesome thing for a father of the bride to do, and both of these families were just the nicest we could have asked for. As always, we thank them for having us and are so grateful they trusted us to capture such an amazing day.

Fairhope Wedding Photographer: Any time we get to shoot at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear it’s special, but a nice bridal shoot is always our favorite. In case you’re wondering, it’s a Southern thing y’all. Wedding days can get a little hectic, the weather’s not always perfect, and the time of day for portraits isn’t always optimal. When we do bridal portraits weeks before the wedding, we can control all of that a bit more. We start closer to sunset than you would on your wedding day for that late afternoon golden light and take the time to play play play for some really beautiful shots! Christie was just stunning in her beautiful dress and it was so much fun doing a trial run before her wedding day which we will have some sneak peeks of very soon. I hope you enjoy these as much as we did taking them!
Kayley & Trey were married this summer on a Thursday afternoon at one of our favorite venues, the Grand Hotel in Point Clear, AL. This wedding had so many elements we loved… It was intimate, at an amazing location, and had a wonderful couple who truly valued photography and what we could do for them. They wanted to see each other before the ceremony to give us the best light and most time, so their guests enjoyed cocktail hour while we took photographs around the property. After the ceremony, guests were invited back inside the hotel for a delicious meal as they were lead by one of Mobile’s most recognized Mardi Gras favorites, the Excelsior Band, founded in 1883. As usual, the staff at the Grand Hotel were wonderful and we cannot recommend them enough if you’re looking for a beautiful wedding location and impeccable service to go with it. Thank you Kayley and Trey for being so wonderful and having us at your wedding, and thank you Kayley for committing to us when you found our website years ago. We LOVE that!
