Lanark Wedding – Montgomery AL – Kayla & Matt

November is a tricky month to get married. You could have heat, snow, rain, frigid temperatures… it’s hard to guess! Matt and Kayla had the good fortune of having perfect weather the day the tied the knot! Kayla and her ladies got ready at a nearby hotel before heading to the ceremony location, Lanark. Lanark has a beautiful story. In short, the land belonged to a couple that were married for almost 50 years, and it was donated to the AWF after they passed away. With this kind of history, it’s the perfect place for Matt and Kayla to start their marriage.
