Allyson & Chris | A Hoover, Alabama Wedding

February 6, 2014

Filed in: Wedding

It’s here, it’s here! I’m so excited to have Allyson and Chris’ wedding on the blog. So many of my very favorite people all in one place – from the Bride and her family, to the wedding party, vendors, and even guests. I just love being able to be such an involved part of a wedding day that is so near and dear to my heart. I even got to play double duty a bit on this lovely January day! (Hey, hey honorary bridesmaids!). Everything came together so beautifully and the day was so reflective of Allyson’s personality and the celebration of Allyson and Chris becoming husband and wife. Allyson’s fabulous look was done by the precious Lynsey Richardson, whom I love working with every single time! The flowers were lovingly designed by the one and only Brittney Gilbert (our bride turned friend and florist) and dear ole Brett even had some of his log slices featured. Allyson’s choice of bands has to be one of my favorites – the fabulous Act of Congress from right here in Birmingham. It was all so very much Allyson and her sweet laid back and fun-loving nature. Feel free to take a stroll down memory lane and learn more about these two from their engagement session I posted a few weeks back. Allyson and Chris – thank you for allowing us to be by your side all day as you pledged to love each other forever. It truly was perfect and I will certainly hope the military will station y’all a bit closer very, very soon ; ) Love you!Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long PhotographyHoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography2Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography3Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography4Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography5Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography6Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography7Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography8Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography9^A “no look” before the “first look” – love!Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography10Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography11Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography12Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography13Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography14Hoover Alabama Wedding by Birmingham Photographer Rebecca Long Photography15^This may be my favorite photo.
