Elegant, classic, bridal and lovely. The first four words that came to my mind when I thought back to Anna and Andrews beautiful wedding day from this summer. The two said “I do” at Park Crest Event Facility in Birmingham, Alabama on a warm June day. The day was filled with so much love and joy. My favorite moments were when Anna shared a first look with not just Andrew, but also her dad and her grandfather. Tears of joy were shed by everyone catching a glimpse of these little moments.
Even in the Alabama heat, we got to spend so much time in Park Crest’s beautiful gardens to take all of their bride and groom portraits. Anna and Andrew’s wedding party loved on them all day and were a blast to photograph. They truly have such a strong community around them as they enter into this new season of life.
After sharing their vows and their first kiss, this beautiful couple danced the night away with those they love most. Anna and Andrew know how to throw one heck of a party! The night ended with them sharing one last dance before leaving for the night. It was a wedding day to remember.
Thank you both, from the bottom of my heart for allowing me the honor of photographing your wedding day! Everything about it was absolutely perfect. I pray you cherish your wedding photos for many, many years to come! Congrats you two and many blessings over your marriage! – Abby
