I feel like I’m starting to sound like a broken record ’round these parts, gushing on and on about how wonderful my clients are and how much we were made for each other and so on and so forth. But hey, it’s my blog, and I’ll do it again if I want to. :) Especially because it’s SO true of Jena and Andrew and their glorious November wedding at Aldridge Gardens! I mean, come on now… black and white stripes, knockout floral arrangements by the incomparable Laura McCarty, the most perfect fall day you ever did see, Nancy’s famous Magic City Macarons, and a super-fun-laid-back-stylish-in-love couple like these two… recipe for magic, I tell ya. And we liked each other so much we’ve been hanging out since the wedding. They even came to my birthday party! So sweet.
It was a joy to have Becca Paul and Jules Knox helping me out at this one! We even all accidentally wore matching stripes, which really couldn’t have been more perfect for the day. Thanks ladies for being excellent partners in crime!
Enjoy some highlights!
Jena, seriously. How are you so gorgeous and stylish? You’re killing me, lady!
This is all just beyond perfect. Can’t even deal.
The thing about a stunning yellow gingko tree like this one at Aldridge is that there is a verrrrry small window for the leaves being at the their peak before they get blown away for winter. Luckily for all of us, those leaves held on longer than they were expected to, and ended up being absolutely BRILLIANT during the sunset ceremony. What a glorious backdrop!
These two danced their first dance to “How Long Will I Love You” from the About Time movie soundtrack. I was in an absolute puddle because it’s become one of my favorite movies. I honestly don’t know why it didn’t get more attention when it first came out. If you haven’t seen it, be sure to have approximately 12 boxes of tissues on hand for that first viewing. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. ;) Anyway, it really made the moment all the more magical.
Congratulations again, you two! All the best! xo
