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.

Alabama Wedding Photographers – We posted a little peek of Sara & Davis’ Southern Alabama Wedding for you last week, but what we didn’t post about was the terribly overcast weather that day and the fact that Sara was pretty sick on her wedding day. We made the decision before the ceremony even started to have an “after session” to really enjoy some relaxing post wedding portrait time and make full use of that beautiful property. With our friends at Diva Productions beside us, we set up another first look for them to get that wedding day feeling all over again and proceeded to start a their photo session in the same area that Davis proposed. We even had to cancel this shoot twice before this day because of bad weather, but the skies on this day were incredible. We had so much fun playing and having a laid back session with them.
If you missed their engagement session we photographed at the same location, check that our here:

Alabama Wedding Photographer – Sara & Davis were married last month in another gorgeous Alabama wedding. It was a four day event starting out Thursday night with a private blessing for close family and friends, a bridal luncheon on Friday for the bridesmaids, a rehearsal with spectacular decor’ on Friday night, a full wedding day on Saturday, and then a Sunday brunch where another family member was proposed to. We are still sorting the 11,000 photos we took with the help of five other photographers we’re proud to call our friends. We’re not going to release too much yet for publication reasons, but this will give you an idea of what a special event it was. We’ll showcase more in the near future, including their Africa themed rehearsal dinner that you won’t want to miss! Be sure to see their Alabama engagement session blog post if you missed it. The weather was cold and nasty on the wedding day, so we will also be doing a “day after” session with the couple in the very near future to complete their wedding gallery. Stay tuned!
Update! The Day After Session can be seen Here!
