Oh friends, I am beyond excited to share Whitney & Lee’s stunning wedding with you all today! This sweet couple said “I do” at The Renaissance Birmingham Ross Bridge Resort and it could not have been more perfect! It was so sweet seeing Lee anxiously waiting to see his bride for their first look and let me tell you, she was glowing! They said their vows on the terrace and spent the sunset of the golf course just before heading into the reception where all of their family and friends danced the night away with them. Whitney knew exactly what she wanted her wedding day to look like and it was so fun seeing her vision come together!

Hi Loves! I am beyond excited to share Chynna & Cal’s stunning summer wedding with you all today! Chynna was seriously the sweetest bride and when Covid forced them to postpone she just rolled with the punches. These two said “I Do” on August 15th at The First United Methodist Church in Montgomery. Even with a few rain showers throughout the day, one of them being right as they were having their first look, they were both just so happy that their wedding day was finally here. After the ceremony Chynna & Cal headed to The Capital for some quick newlywed photos and their friends & families headed to The Alley Station where they all danced the night away!

Hi friends! Today I want to chat with you about something we ALL see, which is how to manage your family’s opinions. Having help and advice is great! I know you are thankful for having supportive people during your wedding planning journey, but sometimes it can get overwhelming. During my personal planning process, I remember thinking “If someone asks me one more question I’m going to lose my mind”.  Although I was thankful for so much help and support, I was still so overwhelmed by the amount of opinions. So, what do you do? I find that responding back to family opinions is definitely important. You don’t want to upset a family member by dismissing them so I suggest taking a few moments and let them know that you are so thankful for their love and support, however you had another beautiful idea for that, after all, this is the most self expressive day of your life.

Gosh, it’s finally time to share Kristin & Joshua’s beautiful summer wedding at Riverchase Country Club. Kristin & Joshua loved celebrating with their family and friends and I will say, their day was absolutely beautiful. Kristin and Joshua decided to wait until Kristin walked down the aisle to first see each other. Seeing Kristin’s face as she was about to turn the corner and see her hubby-to-be was absolutely priceless. There were a little nerves but a lot of excitement! The two spent the sunset on the golf course, gosh it was so dreamy!

Hello friends! Today I’m excited to share Stephanie & Aaron’s Wedding at Aldridge Gardens. Stephanie and Aaron loved Aldridge Gardens as it played a significant role in their engagement season as Aaron proposed to Stephanie at the Butterfly Garden at Aldridge! They knew it would be the perfect spot to say their vows and become husband and wife. These two loved celebrating with their friends and family throughout the night. They thought of everything, from incorporating their fur babies on their cake to honoring their late grandparents during the ceremony. Enjoy these beautiful photos from Sydney Lauren Photography.
