Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Williams! Jessica and Chris are officially married! These two got married in a sweet and laid-back Spanish Fort Community Center wedding. Although I didn’t get to do an engagement session with them before their wedding (Jessica was finishing up school and Chris is a busy fireman!), I was so excited for their wedding day. We met up for coffee to talk all things wedding last year. Their day sounded so fun and focused on them! And it turned out perfectly!! It’s clear when you watch Jessica and Chris that they are excited to be married and spend the rest of their lives together.
Jessica and Chris chose to get married at the Spanish Fort Community Center in Spanish Fort, AL. This wedding was the first time I had photographed this venue – and it’s beautiful! The outside ceremony space was just stunning!! Wait until you see those photos! Jessica and Chris started their wedding day by getting ready with their bridesmaids and groomsmen respectively. When Jessica stepped into her wedding gown, she looked as beautiful as a princess! After she was ready, we headed out to meet her father for a first look. It was so sweet – he was in his military dress and their time together was full of smiles and hugs!!
Then it was time for their ceremony! Although it was hot, the ceremony space was decorated beautifully. Jessica and Chris were thinking of their guests and provided super cute fans for their guests to use. How thoughtful! After a sweet ceremony, I stole Chris and Jessica away for some newlywed portraits around the property! It’s always nice to have this time with brides and grooms – they’re able to take a few minutes to enjoy the fact that they’re married!!
After portraits, we all headed into the reception. And let me tell you – their guests know how to party! There was so much dancing at their reception and everyone was definitely having a great time! I loved that they chose to serve BBQ and cheesecake for their reception – things they both enjoy. Weddings and receptions should always be all about whatever you love and makes you two you! When it was time to send Jessica and Chris off to wedded bliss, we all went out for a ribbon and bell exit! It was so much fun!!!
Jessica and Chris, thank you so much for having me be a part of your wedding day! You two are so sweet – and I can’t wait to see how married life treats you! Congratulations again!
