The Riverside Country Club Wedding, Lanett AL – Derrick & Joanna

Derrick & Joanna’s wedding day can be summed up in just one word: HAPPY! These two didn’t stop smiling all day, and they spent an incredible amount of time mingling and spending time with their guests. Although I’ve just known them the past few months of wedding planning, I can tell they are dearly loved by their friends and family!

A little rain couldn’t deter this ceremony! All eyes were on Joanna as she walked down the aisle.

The bride’s cake (by Sweet Malisa’s) was gorgeous! I won’t comment on the (Alabama) groom’s cake though ;)

I love when couples are willing to get some night or sunset shots! The lake provided the perfect reflection for this one.
