Libby & Ryan

May 19

Munford, Alabama


Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

As I drove into The Cedars, a historic working cotton plantation, owned by close family friends,  my breath immediately was taken away. The gorgeous cedar trees that lines the property, the historic mansion, the cotton fields with tractors in the background, and the bright red mule barn; all of these things reassured me that this was the absolute perfect venue to marry my best friend. Ryan and I wanted a venue that was much like our personalities and lifestyles- fun, interesting, eclectic and with just the perfect amount of southern charm. 

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. The bridal party’s attire. The groomsmen wore blue seersucker suits with red bow ties adorned with cotton boles. The bridesmaids wore cotton, navy blue strapless dresses with gorgeous hand-made, no two alike, turquoise necklaces.
  2. The mason jars and milk glass used around the plantation were heirlooms. Every. Single. Piece was either my mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, aunts, or great aunts. Making it so personal was very important to me. I wanted everything to have a reason.
  3. My wedding cookie cake. I do not like wedding cake- or any other cake to that matter. But, I LOVE chocolate chip cookies and cookie cake. I was adamant on having a cookie cake-wedding cake and after twisting lots of arms, I got what I wanted (Although, I did have a “real wedding cake” as well, the cookie cake was MY wedding cake!).

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

 I cannot quit thinking about the wonderful emotions and butterflies I felt when I was walking down the aisle and seeing my precious husband for the first time in 24 hours. We had both written our own vows and not shared them with each other so hearing our promises and vows to one another will last with me forever. Our ceremony was about us—110% and I am so blessed to have had it that way.

Rustic Farm Wedding in Alabama

Summer & Chad

May 26

Huckleberry Farm, Jasper, Alabama


Our Q&A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The wonderful barn. Chad is a farmer and we are real outdoors people, so the barn and outdoor wedding really represented us as a couple.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

The wine box ceremony where guests wrote letters to us, and Chad and I wrote letters to each other. Chad’s boots being the vessels for the centerpieces. And our wedding cake topper of a man and a woman on a tractor – Chad asked me to marry him on a tractor!

Tell us about the one moment from your wedding day that you can’t stop thinking about.

When Chad was saying his vows it was a very emotional moment for me.

Amazing and Unique “First Look” Idea

Breanna & Ryan


About this “First Sight”: Breanna and Ryan are clearly a couple in love. They are very different though and they are a true case of opposites attracts. He is a biologist that loves to collect bugs while she is an Engineer that loves photography.They do have a common love of music that they wanted to incorporate into their special day. More and more people are choosing to see each other before their ceremony on the wedding day and so I decided to create their “first look” with a twist by placing a door in the middle of the field and asking Breanna to wait on one side of the door for her groom to arrive. It was so magical to see them stand on each side of the door without seeing eachother but when they did lay eyes on each other you could clearly see just how happy they were to share that moment alone with one another in the middle of a beautiful field.
