Friends, we’ve been speechless since shooting this gorgeous Southern wedding on Saturday at the Vestavia Country Club here in Birmingham, AL. The wedding was already so dear to us just because we have grown to know Makenzie and James so well over the past year and more. They are both so sweet and kind & we truly have been obsessed with them since their gorgeous engagement session. We learned there that they have a big love for their sweet Golden dude Theo. We were elated to see he was able to make a visit to see them on their wedding day! Gotta love those fur babies!
The day became even better when we realized we were surrounded by amazing friends & family. Everyone was so down to earth, kind, fun & just as downright excited as we were to see these two get married! Makenzie put so much thought into each detail throughout her day and we just adored the touch of her monogram made by Empress Stationary. It was placed in every perfect way possible and we think it just really added that extra touch.
Makenzie & James, we are thrilled to have captured this day for you. We are so thankful to know you both and it was a joy serving you & will be when we get back together in the future. You two are just so sweet together and we know this is the start of a lifetime of happiness and love! We love your attention to detail & your love for the people around you. It’s wonderful being alongside others that show so much joy & it truly radiated throughout the entire wedding day. You trusted us and we couldn’t thank you enough!
