The Southern Bride's latest wedding took us to the beautiful rolling hills of the Bain Farm in Flat Rock, Alabama.
Countless hours went into preparing this majestic piece of family land into the perfect venue for the couple and several hundred guests to gather. A complete labor of love as some might say, as many worked tirelessly to bring the couple's dream venue to life.
All the flower arrangements were hand picked and put together by the mother of the bride and friends. Our hearts fluttered a little when we laid eyes on the bride's boots!
We made Brayden wait several minutes with that bandana covering his eyes before he could see his stunning bride for the first time... His clenched fists were a dead giveaway at how anxious he had become. Nothing could hold back the flood gate of tears once he saw her... (That's why we LOVE a "First Look")
While the guests started to arrive on the hill, the bridal party snuck back to the Bain house. There they huddled on the front porch to wisper a sweet prayer over the soon to be newlyweds.
What was only a few weeks prior, a simple pole barn used for storing hay was completely transformed by a multitude of people and the design crew of 126 Designs to a whimsical reception hall where guests dinned on a pot-luck style dinner and scrumptious cupcakes.
We know that the West wedding will be one that is talked about for years to come and we are thankful to have had a small part in their special day.

I can't think of enough adjectives to describe the Bailey wedding. Simple & Sweet were the first two that came to mind. The next two were Hot & Humid... as in any given summer day in August! All joking aside, Kaitlyn and Alex had a beautiful backyard wedding, full of charming details.
The Bride and Maid of Honor's bouquets were a refreshing mix of stark, white roses and bright, yellow sunflowers. Nat's Florist in Trenton, Ga did an outstanding job on these arrangements.
We Love that the Bride & Groom chose to see each other before the ceremony so that we could get all these intimate pictures of the two of them. We call it a " First Look" and it's one of our favorite parts of the wedding day.
An old, wooden swing hanging from a large tree in the couple's front yard seem like the perfect place to compose a beautiful ring shot.
We were blown away by the detail and sheer artistry displayed in their wedding cake. Those are edible boots hand-crafted by Tara Scott at SweetSter's also based in Trenton, Ga.
We had a wonderful time capturing the Bailey's special day and we wish them a lifetime of happiness together!
