Morgan and Zach were married at Aldridge Gardens in Hoover, Ala. on September 1. The bride wore a fitted strapless lace gown with a chapel length train and a lace-edged veil. She wore her hair in loose waves and carried a bouquet of chamomile, mums, spray roses, and seeded eucalyptus. Her ‘maids were outfitted in short navy blue lace dresses with various necklines and carried a bouquet just like the bride’s. Her groom looked dapper in a Jos A. Bank khaki suit complete with a patterned navy tie, and his groomsmen matched perfectly! The ceremony took place under a tree outside as 150 guests looked on in white folding chairs. “I wanted our wedding to be romantic yet rustic,” Morgan explained. “Because it was outdoors, I wanted the decor and flowers to be an extension of nature and not overpower the natural beauty of the gardens.” Guests then enjoyed cocktail hour where they drank pink beverages out of mason jars. They were seated at round tables with white linens and blush flower centerpieces, that sat atop burlap fabric. The wedding party sat at a long banquet table facing the other guests. After dinner, guests indulged in a small two-tiered cake and lots of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes! Since both the bride and groom met while in school at University of Alabama, they had a fun twist on the average send-off. “For our farewell, all the guests were given Alabama spirit shakers and we walked through with guests on both sides of us while singing the fight song,”  Morgan said. Talk about a memorable exit! See the full board here.

Samantha and Austin were married in a traditional church ceremony at First Baptist Church of Pinson followed by a reception inside the banquet hall. Fun fact: She is a former contestant on America’s Next Top Model. The bride wore a sweetheart a-line wedding gown with a frothy, full tulle skirt, accessorized with a braided updo and cameo necklace, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a patterned tie. Guests were greeted with programs that featured a timeline of the couple’s relationship. “December 21, 2012 to the ancient Mayan calendar may have been the end of the world, but it was actually the beginning of theirs . . . Austin got down on one knee to ask Samantha to marry him. In the same Marine Biology classroom where it all began.” Just as the ceremony began, “I turned the corner with my dad walking me down the aisle in the church I grew up in and finally saw Austin for the first time,” Samantha said. The processional was just as exciting as the recessional — filled with ribbon wands! The reception kicked off with signature drinks such as Coca-Cola and sparking pink lemonade, tables were decorated with family heirloom vases and vessels atop mirrors, and paper pinwheels hung from the ceiling. In addition to the three-tiered cake, a dessert display was overflowing with Italian cannolis, chocolate-covered strawberries, and pies. See the full board here.

Hope + Ben: A Lavender Outdoor Lakeside Alabama Chapel Wedding By J.Woodbery Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Hope and Ben first met at a church youth group meeting. “I knew who she was for years, but always thought she was out of my league.” Ben said. And were married at an outdoor chapel in the middle of the woods. Hope walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.” “I kept my eyes on Ben the entire time but could feel the warmth from everyone’s hearts as they watched this intimate moment,” she said. “I lost it at the end. Within two feet of Ben, I was so happy I actually cried.” Bridesmaids stood next to Hope wearing lavender chiffon dresses paired with turquoise beaded necklaces. You couldn’t help but notice her dramatic cathedral veil! Following the ceremony, guests snacked on old fashioned popcorn with various seasonings such as nacho cheese and ranch, family photos were on display at reception tables, and fresh fruit was served alongside their cake. See the full board here.
