Alex & Kevin | A Fabulously Southern J&D Farms Wedding

July 25, 2013

Filed in: Wedding

I don’t think I can say enough good things about Alex and Kevin, not to mention their amazing wedding day. I knew from the beginning that Alex had a perfect vision for her laid back wedding and I was so excited to get to shoot a wedding at the beautiful J&D Farms for the first time ever! I must say, Alex planned every detail perfectly – and there were lots of details to plan. Everything had a little touch of Alex’s perfectly southern style – from her unique wedding invitation (The graphic designer in me squealed a little when we received ours!) to the beautiful mismatched seafoam-colored bridesmaids dresses, all the way to her awesome leaving outfit (Hey fabulous blue boots and precious sequin dress!) – everything came together amazingly. I mean, these two were married in an orchard surrounded by trees full of tied lace – does it get any better?! I think not : )
My favorite part of the day was the fact that every little detail held a special meaning for these two. I love that her grandfather performed their God-honoring ceremony, amazingly talented friends were their musicians, and they even found a way to incorporate something near and dear to every Birminghamian’s heart – Doodles! Even the menu for the reception was unique and meaningful for these two – they love breakfast food – so breakfast was had by all! They had a bacon bar y’all. * heavenly *
Well, I’ll leave you to adore this sweet wedding day. Alex and Kevin, thank you for making us fee like family! We couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful day for you two!!

^ I love that moment when everyone sees the bride for the first time. ^ Isn’t she adorable? I love this sweet braided wedding day look. ^ I’m a sucker for blue wedding shoes. ^ Oh J and D Farms… how I love thee. ^ Blue dresses with cowboy boots? Yes! So perfect for their farm wedding! ^ These guys were fun : ) Thanks y’all! ^ Why yes, that is lace hanging from the beautiful orchard limbs over old church pews. Go ahead, swoon away. ^ I laughed when I saw everyone waiting on the ceremony decided to put their program/fan to use for some shade… ^ Through all of our planning chats, Alex told me how she loves hi-key images that are really sunny and airy feeling… The Lord made the perfect day for her for sure! LOVE this ceremony lighting. ^ Burlap chair covers and peonies! Perfection! ^ These two love coffee and bacon. Please, behold the stacks of bacon. Of course don’t overlook the mini pancakes and maple bacon sticky buns. (PS – I’m kinda a fan if you can’t tell) ^ We got to do a photobooth for Alex and Kevin! She had all of these adorable props and we had fun getting everyone to have fun with us ; ) ^ Beautiful sparklers, the end of a fabulous day, and a precious husband and wife. I love documenting these amazing moments.
