Going to the Chapel

A chapel wedding and farm reception make for the perfect Saturday. Wendy and Shane were wed at First Lutheran Church for the perfect summer wedding. Family and friends gathered at the gorgeous church for Wendy and Shane to exchange vows, and then danced and dined all night at Windwood Equestrian in celebration. The best nights are complete with a miniature horse, so "Phoenix" made his appearance to make sure everyone was having fun! Best wishes to the happy couple! 

Erin and John's Windwood Wedding

Erin and John were wed at the school barn surrounded by their closest friends and family on a beautiful summer day. The farm was looking even more beautiful than usual all thanks to Cece Design. One of the best parts of the days, was our time spent with he horses. The couple loved the farm and the horses which called it home, so naturally, we played with horses some! The Whiskey River Band was a highlight of the night! They kept the crowd dancing all night, and the groom even performed a song for everyone! Congratulations to Erin and John! 

Happy Wednesday! 

Vendor Spotlight: Olexa's

A highlight of any reception, no doubt, is the cake! Everyone looks forward to it! Olexa's never disappoints and we have loved their cakes and service through the years. They are always willing to accommodate to the special requests our brides have, and they are delicious! This bride was an artist and had a painting that she created herself that was the backdrop for her wedding ceremony. The bride asked Olexa's to also model her cake after the unique painting she had painted for her special day. The result was almost too breathtaking to cut! Thank you for your service and sweet treats through the years, Olexa's! 

Carter and Lacey's Farm Wedding

There is something about a farm wedding that we just can not get enough of. The southern charm and style is just so welcoming! Carter and Lacey's farm wedding was one of my favorite farm weddings to date. I knew from the moment I met Lacey she would be the most radiant bride! She had big brown eyes, and her smile was contagious. The adorable couple was married at Carter's family's riding farm, and it could not have been more perfect! The venue made the day extra special, and Heathermoor Farm provided the perfect backdrop for the couples' big day. Congratulations to the happy couple!

It has been two years, and a few days, since Sarah and Jeremy were wed on a gorgeous summer night at Windwood Equestrian, and it seems like it was yesterday! These two could not have been more picture perfect, and we could not get enough of Sarah's lace gown! Not to mention, Sarah's shoes, which were my absolute favorite! The couple also brought along the most energetic wedding party and crowd to celebrate their marriage. Everyone gathered at the school barn for Sarah and Jeremy's vows, and then danced the night away in celebration. The two were the sweetest couple, and it was a magical day. Happy Anniversary Sarah and Jeremy! We wish you many more to come! 

Lauren and Drew: Arden Photography

Lauren was one of the sweetest bride's we have worked with, and her wedding day could not have been more perfect! Her color palette of pinks was so bright and perfect for ringing in spring for her and Drew's April wedding! She was such a gorgeous bride and made a beautiful Mrs. Wendland! 

Happy Anniversary Keely and Zach

We can't believe it has been four months since Keely and Zach tied the knot! Their special day at Windwood Equestrian went off without a hitch thanks to Invision Events. Keely was such a relaxed and easygoing bride, and we loved her taste in sweet treats! It's safe to say the doughnuts were one of our favorite parts! Happy Four Month Anniversary Keely and Zach!

Happy two year anniversary to Lyndal and Daniel! We can't believe it has been two years since this beautiful couple tied the knot! The two were wed on a gorgeous summer day at Church of the Highlands Chapel were they shared their intimate vows in front of their closest family and friends. We loved Lyndal's choice for an all white color palette. Her style was so elegant and classic, you just couldn't help but fall in love with the day! We always love working with Mariee Ami's team, and they insured that the day went flawlessly. Their reception at the Birmingham Country Club was a celebration for the books! Dancing and tambourines made for an unforgetable night, no one could just stay sitting! Congratulations Lyndal and Daniel! We wish you all the best and many more the come!

Kisses in the Trees

Engagement photoshoots are some of my favorites! They get everyone excited about the wedding day to come, and the photos are fun to share with all your loved ones and future guest! I have loved getting to know the Natalie and Evan before their big day, and they were so natural in front of the camera. Natalie is going to make a beautiful bride, and we are so excited for their special day. Their wedding this fall just can't come soon enough! 

Jessie and John Cameron's Wedding

We can not believe it has been one month since Jessie and John Cameron's wedding! Jessie and John Cameron were one of those couples you could just tell they were meant to be together. They were inseparable, and when they looked at each other you knew they were in love. They were married at Windwood on a gorgeous June day, and it was the perfect day for a wedding. The farm was looking more beautiful than ever thanks to Susan Huff and Beth Jordan who provided the gorgeous floral arrangements. Jessie and J.C. had an intimate ceremony at the school barn and a reception to follow up at the courtyard where guests enjoyed music and dancing for the night. Guests snapped photos all night in the photo booth, and the cake from Joe's Italian was, of course, one of our personal favorites of the night! Happy one month of marriage from Arden Photography! We wish you all the best!

Hollace and J.R.'s Wedding: Arden Photography

There are some weddings that rainy days just can not dampen, and this was one of them! The rain stopped just in time for Hollace and J.R.'s ceremony at the school barn, and it could not have been more perfect. We loved getting to know this couple throughout our time with them! Hollace and J.R.'s beautiful day was full of all the gorgeous details thanks to Hothouse Design Studio! We love a day full of pastels and lanterns, and that is just what Hollace and J.R.'s day was! Thanks to our friends at HotHouse Design Studio, Windwood was looking even more beautiful with all of the beautiful centerpieces and decor! Kathy G. Catering never disappoints, of course, and the guests could not stop raving! Hollace and J.R., thank you for allowing us to be apart of such a special day, we wish you all the best!

The bride has the spotlight on the wedding day, just as it should be, but sometimes the groom needs a little attention too! The groom typically has an opinion about certain aspects of the day, and one of them is usually his attire. One way the groom can make it all his own is with his cuff links! This groom loved everything outdoors, and we could tell! We loved these, and thought they added to the groom's own unique style! 

Savannah and Chris: Borrowed and Blue Feature

Congratulations to Savannah and Chris on their Borrowed and Blue feature! They were such a sweet couple, and we were so honored to be a part of their day! We thought their wedding was a special one, and apparently Borrowed and Blue thought so too! A vendor dream team came together for their farm wedding at Windwood, and it was the perfect summer wedding! Kalee Baker Events made sure the day went off without a hitch, and the day could not have gone more smoothly. Guests were treated to delicious cake from Pen and Pastry, and it was a huge hit! We are always grateful when our work is published, and congratulations again to everyone who was a part of Savannah and Chris' special day! 

Check out their feature here!

Every little girl dreams of the perfect wedding dress. The one that twirls just the right way while you dance the night away. Growing up my mom and I would always watch 'Say Yes to the Dress' and loved seeing what dress each blissful bride chose for her day. The classic "saying yes to the dress" has now stuck and is here to stay. We love to see what each bride says, "YES!" to, and how it reflects her personal style. This lighting was perfect for this bride's farm wedding, and she was stunning in her dress!
