Happy month-aversary to Megan and Brett! Their blog post was supposed to be up last week, but this is one of those situations in life that being friends with a client is a blessing and a curse. It’s a “curse” for Megan because I know she’ll still love me even if her blog post is later than hoped… and of course a blessing to me to know this : )
Brett Long and I loved every minute of Megan and Brett’s wedding weekend. We were able to attend the sweet rehearsal and dinner the night before and I even got to stay with Megan and Brett L. with Brett R. the night before the big day.
I could go on and on about all of the lovely details throughout the weekend. One of my favorite things from the big day was having all of the bridesmaids stay with the bride in a beautiful Bed and Breakfast! This made for lovely getting ready photos and a super stress-free atmosphere. Hint for future brides: finding a lovely setting for your getting ready photos with your bridesmaids is the way to go!
The church where they exchanged vows was perfect for them. I’m pretty sure I have never seen so many joyful tears throughout a wedding day… my tears included. gah! Even the (pouring) rain couldn’t put a damper on the joy-filled afternoon.
Thankfully the rain came and went during (mostly) the right times of the day, allowing for everyone to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Alabama. These two worked so hard to transform Brett R’s family farm into the perfect reception location. Everything turned out beautifully!
I’ll let the photos do the rest of the story telling…^ These AWESOME red boots were Brett’s wedding gift to Megan. Well done indeed!^ Megan looked awesome in her dress from Dianne’s Formal Affair.
s^ The adorable Bed and Breakfast was amazing for a few bridal portraits before we headed to the church!^ This over-joyed groom set my tears off. Way to go Brett… you made me cry. ; )^ The sweet “first look”^ I’m loving Brett’s peach, paisley tie. Great job on the details Meggs!^ The florals by Bonita Hamlin were beautiful! They fit the style of the day perfectly. ^ Y’all looked pretty fab in your peach dresses ladies. ^ Megan designed all of her wedding stationery! Invitations, thank you notes, programs… and the list goes on. Beautiful!^ Sweet prayer time with friends followed by her dad giving her an “emergency poncho” as he has done many times before. ^ Notice the “emergency poncho” makes its appearance! I loved this… I also adore the shot of her daddy and new husband taking care of their girl. * tear^ A fabulous simple and elegant cake! ^ Strawberry shortcake table for the groom’s “cake”^ Perfect favors for the drive home. ^ That’s right. They left in Brett’s BIG, green tractor. ^ Here’s a little surprise for the Bride and Groom that took place after they left. Good times… good times…
