Lauren & Jimmy

Lauren and Jimmy managed to pick the most beautiful day of the summer for their wedding – and 80 degree Birmingham days in August don’t come around very often. We had a fantastic day hanging out with Lauren, Jimmy, and their fantastic families and friends. The wedding was scheduled during the golden light in the beautiful fields outside Matthew’s Manor, and during the reception Lauren’s very talented family members entertained us with classic bluegrass and then Jimmy took the stage with his brothers and sisters to sing an original song Jimmy had written right for his bride right before they started dating and some Needtobreathe (which was fun for us since their drummer, Joe Stillwell, was a groomsman in our wedding).

The ceremony was at Matthews Manor and they did all the amazing flowers. Lauren’s dress was from Ivory and White – the bridal boutique in Crestline Village that orignally brought her to Birmingham, and Danny Brewer from Feel the Beat Entertainment was the DJ.

Erica & Chad

Erica and Chad had a beautiful wedding at the Sonnet House in May, one of our favorite places to shoot in beautiful weather. We teamed up again with Anita from AK Brides, Carol from Lillie’s Flowers, and Andy Tolar from Design Productions for a flawless day. Erica’s dress was from Ivory and White.

They had an elegant laid back affair with a fantastic dance party at the end where Erica and Chad were front and center. We went back to the Tutwiler with them after the reception ended for a few photos and Chad had the idea to put them on the balcony of their suite to take some pictures from across the street – with some luck and some teamwork we got a great shot from far away that we’d never taken before.
