Destination Wedding at Private Coastal Estate in Nova Scotia [Canada] – Published in Destination I Do Magazine

This stunning coastal French Chateau “Harbour Mist” on the maritime province of Nova Scotia, Canada was the inspiration for this wedding design with pretty French details and colors that mimic’d the estate’s architecture. The home’s gray cedar shingles, the coastline’s bluish-grey stone that has been smoothed by years of the tide washing over it, and mussel and clam shells found along the shoreline, all determined the color palette for this wedding. To compliment the smoky blues and grays, the bride wore an appliquéd blush Monique Lhuillier wedding gown and blush Jimmy Choo heels. Her art deco diamond ring from Walton’s Antique Jewelry looked lovely placed in a vintage ring box with gold fleur de lis on the lid. Bridesmaids wore a smokey blue Watters dress with blush underlay. Long flowing strands of hand-dyed ribbon by Cocoon Silk Ribbon were tied around the bouquets to catch the ocean breezes.

Weathered wood guest tables sprinkled the plush green lawn and boasted gathered floral centerpieces by Thorne & Thistle, including native blooms, such as white lilac and Canada Mayflower, along with blush pink peonies, roses and foraged greenery. Guests were mezmerized with 180 degree views of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and a view of the estate, orchard and hillside on the other. Calligraphy place cards by Gracefully Made Art were tucked into blue mussel shells at each guest’s seat. The custom wedding invitation, calligraphy and illustration of the estate were all created by Anna Lora Whitley of Silt & Pine. The Bride and Groom chose to hand write their vows in a gray velvet Vow book by Elmo Paper Stories. Maple syrup in a bottle shaped like the maple leaf, also seen on the Canadian flag, were parting gifts for guests and used the next morning at a brunch given by the groom’s family for out-of-town guests. It was the loveliest of days captured on film.

Francie & Smylie’s Vestavia Country Club & The Club Wedding, Birmingham AL [Published in BRIDES]

The absolute best part of my job is the couples I meet. I’ve been blessed with the kindest brides, grooms, families and wedding parties who make the day so much fun.

Francie and Smylie met when they were 15 and 16 and have the sweetest story. They are both from Vestavia Hills (Birmingham AL), where my family lived for 10 years before moving to Nashville, so we have lots of mutual friends. Smylie grew up on Vestavia Hills Country Club golf course, learned how to play the game there and now plays on the PGA Tour. I’m always excited when I can photograph a couple where they have a connection to a place that holds so many memories, so I was thrilled we were able to do their First Look and portraits at VCC.

Francie worked with  Mariée Ami to plan her wedding with an amazing vendor team (see complete list at the end of this post). She was such a pleasure to work with from day one; and when the wedding day weather forecast included a tornado warning and her portraits were interrupted by thunderstorms, she was calm and full of grace, without even one word of complaint. She radiated joy all day, from getting ready at her family’s home to their sendoff at The Club in a golf cart, of course.

Francie has a lifestyle blog and Instagram account  @Fairwayfinds. Follow along as she shares travel adventures and healthy living finds while on the PGA Tour with Smylie. Francie signs off with each blog post “Always finding joy,”. Yes, she is, and her wedding day had so much of it!

Francie and Smylie, thank you for choosing me to be a small part of your beautiful wedding day! Best wishes for a lifetime of health, happiness and birdies!

Callie & Gil’s Vestavia Hills Country Club Wedding

It was such a joy and privilege to spend a beautiful spring day in Birmingham celebrating with this family. They are truly the sweetest people and it was obvious by their wedding party and guests that Callie and Gil are loved and adored. Callie’s Mom is always smiling and I wish everyone reading this blog could have heard her Dad’s precious welcome speech and prayer at the reception. It brought tears to my eyes. And so did their “Daddy’s Girl” relationship. I mean, how cute is it that the First Look with Callie’s Dad included a father-daughter chest bump that ended in a special hive five, fist bump move…a long tradition of theirs for big life moments. You’ll see…it’s priceless!! And, Gil’s reaction seeing Callie at their First Look and their gift exchange on the hilltop are two of my favorite moments from this wedding.

Callie and Gil, I wish you all the blessings and happiness in the world that stems from a marriage with Jesus at the center. You are loved.
