All weddings are special, but they’re especially wonderful when you get to photograph your brother-in-law and future sister-in-law’s wedding! You may remember these two from when I photographed Clint’s Auburn University proposal and their engagement session last May. They chose Douglas Manor in Columbiana, outside Birmingham, for their wedding venue.
Katina Carter and her assistant did a wonderful job of getting Emily and her ladies ready for the day!Emily chose a beautiful dress that was perfect for the winter wedding setting.
Clint and Emily wanted to have a second photographer, and I’m so glad they did! Becca was able to capture extra moments like this that I wouldn’t have time for on my own.
I loved Emily’s choice of reception shoes, these mint Vans!Clint and Emily’s wedding bands looked lovely on her bouquet by Kathy Thomas Designs. Emily had a specific vision in mind for her bouquet and Kathy was able to execute it!
Emily’s four best friends were such a loving, helpful support team for her all day, and she had three adorable younger ladies to help, too!
Although most of the leaves were off the trees, this secluded pathway behind the venue was a great setting for portraits!
Clint and his groomsmen looked great in their suits from Men’s Wearhouse.
Kathy’s florals formed a gorgeous arbor over Clint and Emily during the ceremony!
After the ceremony, we took some time for family photos and bridal party photos, narrowly avoiding a spot of rain!Wedding Cakes by Jan created these two lovely cakes! Clint is a huge Star Wars fan, so his cake was very especially fitting! The guys even went to see Rogue One the night before the wedding.
Douglas Manor’s wooden boards made a perfect backdrop for the bride’s cake cutting.
There was even a bit of cake smashing! The reception was full of delicious food from Loretta Newman and her crew before guests waited outside for the bride and groom to make their grand exit!
Clint and Emily were showered with birdseed before heading off to their honeymoon, a cruise and a visit to Universal Studios! Congratulations!
Thank you, Clint and Emily, for asking me to photograph your wedding! I wish you the best as you begin your life together.
