Katie grew up vacationing on Scenic Hwy 30A so it was very fitting to get married at her parent’s home in Watersound,  a beautiful coastal community.  Her wedding gown was designed by Vera Wang and her bouquet was wrapped in lace from her mom’s bridal gown.  Her tailored made bridesmaids dresses are designed by Lula Kate. Katie’s cake was made by Confections on the Coast to mimic her wedding gown and her cake table linens were made by I Do Linens.  Chez Renee provided the adorable vintage rentals that were all around.  Florals By The Sea did an amazing job with the event design and flowers,  my favorite were the live cherry blossom branches,  just beautiful!  Stephanie Tate brought everything together with her talented wedding planning team.

  9. These photographs are stunning. Nothing more to it. You really capture the beauty and excitement there is to find on such occasion. Wonderful.

This is the sweetest,  most selfless couple and we were so blessed to share in their wedding day with them.  They were married in St. John’s Evangelical Church established in 1874 with their children at their side.  They welcomed their closest friends and family to a reception with wonderful food and music then whisked away for a romantic honeymoon for a few weeks.   Upon their arrival home,  Cullman, Alabama was devastated by an enormous tornado that has changed this little town forever.   The historic church they were married in suffered little damage and has become a shelter for those without a home.  A fund has been set up for churches and individuals devastated to donate to in order to help in the rebuilding efforts of Cullman.  If you would like to help Cullman’s community,  checks can be made out to “Ministry to Cullman” P.O. Box 100, Cullman, Alabama 35055.  If you would like to contact Rev. Richter please visit the church’s website: www.stjohnscullman.com

The herb rosemary is the symbol of remembrance and fidelity.   Haley and John wanted their wedding day to be a wonderful day to remember.  She demonstrated her fidelity by wearing her grandmother’s broach on the sash on her gorgeous gown by Melissa Sweet and her mother’s personal veil.  Haley was breathtaking.  The bridesmaid’s dresses are by Priscilla of Boston.

The morning before the wedding,  Jenny,  Julie’s mom planned a very sweet brunch for Julie’s closest friends.

Julie’s bouquet was made to incorporate seashells that she and her mom had collected over the years.  Just after sunset,  the guests used lanterns,  that had their names and table numbers tied to them,  to light the to way to their seats for a family style dinner prepared by Townsend Catering.

Julie wore these amazing peacock colored shoes which tied in beautifully with her bridesmaid’s dresses.

Each bridesmaid wore a unique antique inspired broach in her hair.

It has been a long time since I have seen a wedding cake pull!  This is a very old Victorian English tradition where bridesmaids and close friends of the bride’s pull a ribbon that is attached to a charm that had been baked into the cake.  Each charm has a significant value.

The most significant expression of love I experienced at this wedding was the endurance of Julie and Dave’s family and friends.  On their wedding day there was a huge storm blowing in that brought with it gusts of wind up to 40mph!  Tent sides were hung to protect the guests during dinner but the wind was blowing so hard that we couldn’t help but get wet.  Despite all of this,  everyone had a great time. They laughed and cried as they appreciated the time they had together.  Dave is activate duty and will be going back to Afghanistan  within weeks of the wedding.  Thank you,  Dave,  for your service to our country.

The Abaco Islands is the home to Hope Town, a very small settlement where Catherine’s family owns a vacation home.  Catherine’s dream was to share her wedding weekend there with as many friends and family that could come.  I’d say her dream came true!  Paul and I arrived late one night by ferry,  after a couple of plane and taxi rides.  The 150 year old light house lit the way.

Catherine’s father planned a welcoming party with an awesome band and surprised everyone with fireworks.

The next day everyone enjoyed some beach and pool time before the rehearsal dinner.

The morning after the wedding,  we all met at the family’s home for brunch and a boat ride to Cracker P’s,  a local’s favorite,  for lunch.
