Caroline & Daniel [Vestavia Country Club, Birmingham AL]

Caroline and Daniel’s wedding was planned to perfection by Anita Kanellis of AK Brides. She curated elements of southern charm, sophistication and gorgeous floral design by Carol Riley of Lillie’s, to create a beautiful day for this fun couple who met at The University of Alabama. You can see their Tuscaloosa Engagement Session here.

From her blush Badgley Mischka shoes and her “something old” emerald estate ring to her exquisite “something new” Augusta Jones gown from Carriage House Weddings, Caroline was a lovely southern bride with so much grace and beauty.

A few sweet takeaways from the day…Caroline’s relationship with her mother was a precious one to watch, her bridesmaids were best friends that rejoiced and celebrated every single detail that excited Caroline about her wedding day, and finally, Daniel and Caroline are the truest of romantics. That will serve them so well in their married life.

Best wishes for a lifetime of health and happiness for the Harbaughs. Thank you for choosing me to be a part of your day!

(Forgive the lengthiness of this post. I loved this wedding and all of its blissful moments.)

Kristen + Jon

My kids started school today, so it’s time to get caught up on the blog! I love them being home for summer and being on a more relaxed schedule; but it always slows down my workflow a bit. Since the days are flying by all too quickly and they grow up so fast, I try to take more time in the summer to soak them up and make memories together. I can’t believe I already have a 5th grader and a 1st grader! Before I know it they’ll be going to college and getting married! And, speaking of married…

I had the privilege of photographing Kristen and Jon’s gorgeous wedding, as the second shooter for my sweet and talented friend Jessica Wright. Amidst our extremely rainy summer, we were thrilled to be blessed with sunshine! Thank you to Jessica for asking me to shoot with her, and to Kristen and Jon for allowing me to share in their sweet celebration. Everything was just perfect and Kristen and Jon were all smiles, all day!

Love that they could get a birds eye view of their guests from this loft where they had dinner alone together.

I was taking this shot and couldn’t help but notice the expressions of Kristen’s mom and bridesmaids in the background, so I had to get a shot focused on their faces too!
