If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a story last weekend where I got a little teary-eyed talking about a wedding I had just shot. I was on my way home (or back to my Airbnb in downtown Fairhope, rather) and I couldn’t believe just how beautiful and FULL of Jesus Anna and David’s wedding day was. I mean, I knew it was going to be special… and I knew it was going to be one of the most joyful wedding days I’d ever witnessed or captured… but I had no idea just how unforgettable it was going to be! It was so exciting shooting at Bella Sera Gardens in Loxley, Alabama too!!
The day started and ended with happy tears and there’s no better way to begin and end your wedding day. It was so emotional and so memorable and SO beautiful… I honestly am having a hard time knowing where to start with describing how special this day was! Between the chic French-inspired details to the incredible sweets table to the coffee truck during cocktail hour (I have never had such a yummy iced mocha mid-wedding day!)… it was all a dream! This entire day is beyond Pinterest-worthy and all of Anna’s hard work (and the efforts of her dream team of vendors like Fusion Floral Design and Wed With Style) REALLY shows!!
Anna started her vows with, “When I look at you, I see the fulfillment of a promise that Jesus whispered over me for years, I see the twinkle in God’s eyes and the mystery of God’s mercy, and I see the answer to prayers that a younger version of me prayed desperately over and over and over again for. David, I don’t deserve you. (But as you always remind me, that’s the beauty of Jesus and his unfathomable grace. Apart from him- we deserve nothing.) When I look over our story, I am so grateful for the way in which God wove every detail according to his purposes. I love Him all the more for it.”
Wow… if that doesn’t give you an idea of how amazing Anna and David are, maybe these photos will reveal just a glimpse. These two love Jesus and each other so much and it’s inspiring. I can’t believe I had the honor of capturing their wedding day. It was truly a dream. My words can’t do the day justice, but maybe these few favorite images of mine from their wedding day will! Without further ado…!
Special thanks to these vendors without whom this day wouldn’t have been possible!
