It has been a ridiculous amount of time since I have done a full blog post on a wedding! I have been so crazy busy shooting and editing that the blog has really been put on the back burner, but I am determined to get caught up this week. I want to share all the special moments I have been capturing during this crazy busy time.
I want to start with Jamie & Scott’s wedding day. I love every single wedding I shoot, all of the details, the quiet and excited moments, and just how the whole day comes together. But every once in a while there is a wedding that just sticks in my mind and this was one of them. Jamie is one of those people who’s smile is infectous. Her laugh is filled with joy, and her expression is always so genuine. She compliments Scott’s personality so well, and they are just one of those couples you know will be together forever.
The wedding ceremony was held in Saint Mark United Methodist Church, which is the same church Jamie’s mother and father were married in many years ago. Jamie wore her mom’s cathedral length veil, which was breathtaking and so fun to play with during her portraits. Jamie and Scott were blessed in the fact that Jamie’s parents are part owners of Bud & Blossoms. They are a floral company specializing in weddings (and they do a FANTASTIC job). Upon my arrival, I watched Jamie’s sweet father arrange beautifully thought out pew markers and secure them to every single pew. The whole day was just filled with Jamie and Scott’s family loving on them, and there is nothing better than that.
The reception took place at Iron City in downtown Birmingham, and this was by far the most fun reception I have ever gotten to shoot. From Jamie and her dad’s choreographed dance to the wedding party taking over the stage and singing “We are Family”, this reception was just one for the books. Z And The Party Faktory kept all of the guests dancing late into the night. I don’t think there was a guest in attendance who did not get out and boogie with the bride and groom at least once.
To the whole Goodloe family, and the new Mr. & Mrs. Swiderski, thank you for inviting me to be a part of such a special day. It was an HONOR.
A special thanks to all the awesome vendors.
