DESTINATION

A beautiful summer day, a couple whose love for one another is completely palpable, and a surprise rain shower made this Alys Beach engagement session quite memorable. When these two told me they spend their summers on the beaches of 30a Florida, we knew it would be the perfect backdrop to capture their engagement photos.

This romantic Lake Como inspired wedding truly left no detail untouched. From the elegant stationary suite to the cake forks for the bride and groom, each aspect of the day was truly special.

The steps of the venue were lined with rose and anemone centered floral arrangements and accentuated by gold candlesticks topped with blush pink tapers. This created the most luxurious backdrop for vows, but still allowed the Italian architecture to shine.

This intimate San Diego, California beachside wedding got me from “hello” with all of its tropical and bohemian touches. I loved every detail, from the perfectly pink Jimmy Choos, to the clean and modern touches of the stationery and wedding cake. These touches extended even to the welcome boxes for out-of-town guests, which included some […]

It was such an honor to be a part of this incredible couple’s wedding day in beautiful Birmingham, Alabama–the city where they met and fell in love. It’s been wonderful getting to know Gina & Spencer during such a special chapter in their lives. The couple’s families and friends traveled from near and far to witness them take their vows and celebrate together. We began Gina & Spencer’s day at the historic Redmont Hotel. The Redmont made such a gorgeous backdrop as the wedding party spent the morning here getting ready. One of my favorite moments from the morning was the first look between Gina & her parents with her sisters looking on. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room. The Roof at the Redmont was the perfect space for Spencer and his groomsmen to relax before heading over to The Cathedral of St Paul for the ceremony.

Gina &Spencer’s reception took place at the beautiful in downtown Birmingham. Hearing their families give such heartfelt and beautiful speeches during the toasts brought tears to my eyes. These two met in med school at UAB, and Spencer’s brother toasted “you’ve been our role model, our confidant, our doctor, our best friend, and I’m so happy that you’ve found your role model, your confidant, your doctor, and your best friend.” When Gina’s sister spoke, she mentioned that throughout their lives Gina was their North Star, always leading them back home. In just the small amount of time I’ve known them, I can tell that these are just the kind of people they are, always caring for others. I know that she and Spencer will be that for each other throughout everything life sends their way, each other’s North stars. Looking for a Birmingham Wedding Photographer? I’d love to chat with you.
