We couldn’t have ordered more perfect fall weather for Emily and Seth’s early November nuptials in Mountain Brook, Alabama. The day began with the bride and groom surrounded by their wedding party getting ready at her parents’ home. With her Mom and Dad overlooking from the balcony, Seth stood in the back yard and had his First Look of Emily in her blush Mira Zwellinger gown.
Forgive me for the lengthy blog post and amount of images, but this day had so many memorable moments with stunningly beautiful details designed by the talented team of Mariée Ami Wedding Planning Studio. It was a traditional Jewish ceremony, so Emily and Seth signed the Ketubah before the ceremony and danced the Hora dance at the reception. And, trust me…you don’t want to miss Emily and her dad’s choreographed father-daughter dance. Plus, Seth got up on stage and sang Tom Petty’s “American Girl”. Both had the crowd roaring. Such a fun night!
Emily was the sweetest bride to work with from the planning process all the way through the moment she and Seth departed at the end of their wedding day. She took time amidst all that was going on in HER day to say thank you after so many shots all day long. She had a grateful heart which she made known to her parents and every vendor involved in her wedding.
I’ll let the images tell the rest of this wedding story. You can also see this wedding on Carats & Cake. Mazel Tov Emily and Seth! I wish you the very best. Thank you for inviting me into your life to celebrate and document your perfect day.
