Paula Davis Wedding Photography » Auburn Alabama Wedding Photographer

As much as I love big, long wedding days, there is also something wonderful and sweet about a small, simple wedding. Aaron and Emily chose to get married in their back yard in Columbus. They invited their immediate family and best friends, which allowed them to relax and enjoy the day and focus on what it was all about!
