Sarah & Bubba’s Birmingham Wedding at Swann Lake Stables

Sarah was a sweet, beautiful and relaxed bride. She gracefully meandered around Swann Lake Stables barn and grounds bordering the Cahaba River in her Kelly Faetanini dress, Toni Federici veil and Badgley Mischka heels. Bubba, her adoring groom, wore a formal white dinner jacket well. Humphrey Bogart would be impressed. The bridesmaids wore lovely in their soft blush pink dresses by Wtoo.

Sarah & Bubba’s  details were perfectly curated by Courtney Wolf of Invision Events, with a nod to the groom’s love of hunting, especially turkey hunting. Turkey feathers were thoughtfully placed into all white flower arrangements by Hot House Design Studio. And, the subject of many guests’ iPhone cameras was the amazingly detailed wild turkey groom’s cake. Even the feathers were edible!

I always say I have the sweetest couples and families and I really do! I feel so blessed! Sarah’s Mom and I hit it off from the first time we met over coffee to discuss the wedding and my possible role as their photographer. I’m so thankful they chose me. It was a privilege and a pleasure to capture their wedding story. It was perfect. You can also see this amazing wedding on Borrowed & Blue here.

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.)
