I met Kristi and Andrew for their engagement session towards the end of the last year at Blakely State Park and I was so impressed to learn Kristi was planning their wedding day through the holidays. Superwoman, seriously!! Kristi and Andrew created a rustic inspired wedding day to celebrate their union. They decided to get married on her father’s property in Fairhope, Alabama and their day came together perfectly. When I arrived, the girls were all getting ready and the excitement was so obvious! They all looked so great in their robes – I love the matching robes trend for the bridesmaids. It’s so much fun! Before long, it was time for Kristi to get into her wedding gown! The Maggie Bridal gown was stunning on and off the hanger. She looked so beautiful!!!
Their southern wedding day kicked off officially with a sweet and emotional ceremony along the water on her dad’s property. Blooming Fabulous Flower Shop created an exceptional display of pink roses on the arbor and the wooden doors Kristi and her father walked through to meet Andrew. Those little details were seriously beautiful and brought their wedding day to life! After the ceremony, I stole Kristi and Andrew away for some portraits. This has to be my favorite part of any wedding day! It’s a great chance to give the bride and groom a few minutes to process the fact that they’re married now!!! Of course, Kristi and Andrew were absolute naturals in front of my camera – and it’s so clear how in love they are (and how excited they were!).
They ended the night with their backyard reception. The party was going all night long under the tent and everyone was so happy to be there celebrating the newlyweds! Through the toasts from the bridal party and parent dances, there were a lot of tears of joy. Everyone who was there truly loves this wonderful couple (and how could you not?!). When the partying was over, Kristi and Andrew said goodbye to everyone with a sparkler exit! Always so fun and a great way to end a special night!!
Kristi and Andrew, your rustic southern wedding day was so wonderful and I’m thankful I was able to be a part of it! Thank you for letting me capture your love story. I wish you all the best and congratulations again to Mr. and Mrs. Hall!!
