Alexandra & Justin’s Birmingham Botanical Gardens & Grand Bohemian Hotel Wedding

Alexandra and Justin’s wedding, planned by Handley Breaux Designs, was such a pleasure to shoot and the vendor team did an outstanding job at delivering her dream day. The bride and groom, their families and wedding party incredibly sweet and so much fun! We were blessed with mild, breezy weather (unusual for May in Alabama) for their outdoor ceremony at Birmingham Botanical Gardens, and it couldn’t have been more gorgeous! I was thrilled to be a part of this beautiful wedding. Here are some of my favorite images from Alexandra and Justin’s storybook day.

Angel & Jared [Mountain Brook Private Estate Wedding & Ovenbird Reception]

Angel and I have known each other for years. She’s one of those people who you meet for the first time and she makes you feel like you’ve known each other forever. Her smile is infectious and her personality endearing. So, it’s no surprise that she and Jared ended up together. He’s one of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet and he’s never met a stranger. They both love to travel and are so full of life.

Angel graciously gives me some credit for she and Jared meeting, and it’s fun to think that I had a small part in their sweet union. This lovely June wedding was held at their friends’ beautiful Mountain Brook estate. The intimate back yard ceremony was perfect and their nuptials were exchanged overlooking the city of Birmingham, with a view of Vulcan in the distance. The reception afterwards was at James Beard award winner, Chef Chris Hastings’ newest restaurant, Ovenbird. It was the first wedding reception held at Ovenbird and discerning guests were treated with delicious and beautifully presented bites.

Angel and Jared’s wedding was simply modern and absolutely stunning. You’ll see…
