I love the way Emily and Zac interact with one another—–a thousand little glances and smiles culminating in an obviously deep affection and tenderness. It was an honor to spend the day photographing this Nirvana Gardens wedding. Twinkling lights adorned the trees and deep blue hydrangeas were in bloom. It was a day to remember.

As the ceremony began, the skies rumbled dark and grey. The familiar sound of  heavy rainfall could be heard in the distance. The ceremony was set,  guests seated, and Zac awaited his bride. One by one, small raindrops started falling. As the Emily made her way across the grassy field, umbrellas opened—and slowly closed again.

There was no rain. The remainder of the ceremony was dry and quiet, with only Zac and Emily’s vows to be heard.

I met Aimee and Tyler for their engagement session in downtown Huntsville at the newly opened Pints & Pixels arcade bar. From the start, we knew we wanted to do something that was fun, quirky, and could incorporate some of their favorite activities. That meant getting awesome photos with video games, pinball machines, and light sabers.

This arcade engagement session was a dream—I’m obsessed with the cute piranha plants we came across! (The staff was nice enough to let us use them for some balcony-fun outside.) From the arcade, we wandered around downtown (only occasionally stopping for a light saber battle).

After this, I’m even more excited for their Birmingham wedding next year!

Jessica and Dustin’s Alabama Center for the Arts wedding was intimate, elegant, and filled with thoughtful delights for guests. The unique watercolor display at the museum was echoed in the invitations and the crystal chandeliers and high ceilings gave a feeling of grandeur. Guests gathered for the ceremony in a brick courtyard flanking the building and listened as Jessica and Dustin joined their lives together.

Olivia and Eric’s dreamy Camp Maranatha wedding was held at the water’s edge, overlooking Guntersville Lake.  The ceremony and reception truly were a labor of love. Family friends set the tables, a floral chandelier was hung, and Eric built the ceremony doorway himself the week of the weddingAs guests began to arrive, low music beckoned them down the tealight-lined path and through the large wooden doors.

Courtney and Jake were married on the back steps of Huntsville’s beautiful Annabella of Cedar Glen. The gardens were blooming, the skies were blue, and a light breeze rustled through the overhead trees. I love garden weddings. There’s something inherently magical about being surrounded by flowers and twinkling lights on a wedding day.

Courtney wore a vintage-inspired long sleeved gown. Scalloped beading covered the lace and delicate buttons trailed down the back. The details were carefully chosen—from sparkling jewelry and custom cuff links, to a sweet tie gifted to her dad during their first look.

Venue: Annabella at Cedar Glen

Makeup: Brittianna J
