Ashton + Loren | 5Eleven Wedding

Ashton and Loren had the most ridiculously adorable downtown Pensacola wedding. The couple brought friends and family to our wonderful city to celebrate in marriage, and I’m not even sure if they know why they chose Pensacola, but I am so grateful they did. Ashton’s sweet and calm personality set the tone for the day. Loren was SO excited to see his new bride as he sweetly stated ,“she always looks like this.” The love and emotion between the couple and their family and friends brought me to tears more than once during the day (especially during Loren’s father’s toast – where I’m pretty sure there wasn’t a dry eye in the house).

5eleven Palafox was the perfect venue for the couple and loved ones. The sounds from Any Day DJ kept the room moving to no end and I can’t express enough gratitude to the coordinators of the day (Shannon and Riley) for keeping things moving fluently without a hitch.

The bridal party was certainly one of the sincerest I’ve encountered. It was obvious that all their relationships had been cultivated over many great times and even some sad times, as heard in the best man’s speech, but the excitement and love in the room gave so much hope for the future of Ashton and Loren.

Allie + Buddy | Ezell House Wedding

One of my favorite things about this job is that I have the opportunity to witness some of the most profound and meaningful moments in our clients’ lives. I don’t mean just the marriage ceremony itself, but all the small moments and interactions that build up a wedding day. Allie and Buddy’s wedding was a great example of this – they met when they were 13 and have been together for ten years (their wedding day was actually their ten-year anniversary!). I enjoyed the sense of familiarity and comfort that the families obviously had with one another – after ten years, Allie was already pretty much a part of Buddy’s family, and vice versa!

Allie and Buddy chose to have their hometown ceremony in Buddy’s family church in Theodore. It was truly special watching his family beam while watching their son marry, from the pews where they sit each and every Sunday. Their nieces and nephews were the sweetest flower girls and ring bearers, and the feeling of family permeated every part of the day. The bride’s aunt had her great-great grandmother’s wedding gown restored, and it was moving to see Allie’s gown hanging next to one worn in 1910. At their downtown Mobile reception, the couple gave everyone (EVEYRONE!) personalized coffee mugs that everyone used to make yummy hot chocolate and coffee drinks on this cold January day. It was the coldest day of the year (pretty consistently 27 degrees, which in lower Alabama is pretty much arctic), but no one cared. The guest bundled up, sipped steaming cocoa, and heaped hugs onto this couple.

Marie + Allen | Miramar Beach Wedding

Marie and Allen traveled all the way from Grenada (where Allen attends school) to have an amazing Miramar Beach wedding celebration on New Year’s Eve.  Marie looked absolutely amazing in her backless sheath dress and long veil.  Allen, one of the kindest souls I’ve ever worked with, looked quite dapper himself.  Though the elements (overcast, breezy and chilly with a slight drizzle of rain) barely cooperated for the outdoor beach ceremony, the love between Marie and Allen brightened the atmosphere and warmed the hearts of their family and friends. The wind and rain simply couldn’t keep these two from smiling!

The couple chose the Embassy Suites hotel to host their reception where the bridal party, especially, made their mark on the dance floor.  Rather than having a traditional wedding cake, they decided to celebrate with cannolis brought in all the way from Gruttadauria Bakery, Rochester, New York.  The speeches from the bride and groom’s longtime friends were very heartfelt and funny keeping everyone in the room at full attention. During the grand exit, I’m sure that everyone within blocks of the hotel could hear the loud honking from those crazy New Year’s blow horns that were crazily out of control celebrating the wonderful send off.  Congratulations, Marie and Allen!

–much love, Jeremy

Catherine + David | Fairhope Wedding

Catherine and David planned their wedding for the week of Christmas, in Fairhope, Alabama (one of my very favorite small towns in the world).  Their Fairhope wedding captured so many of the things I love most about the location – the gorgeous live oaks, dripping with Spanish moss, the quaint white chapel just big enough for family and friends, and the sense of tradition of this lovely Southern state.
