I’m SO excited to share these beautiful wedding photos from Ashley and Stephen’s big day! If you’ve seen my Instagram feed lately, then you’ve seen bits and pieces of this gorgeous day, but now I’m sharing the full day!! Ahh!! It was one of the most memorable and joyful weddings I’ve had the honor of photographing. The wedding took place at Camelot Manor, just outside of Birmingham Alabama. It was the perfect location for this couple! Ashley told me when she was touring the venue that she kept telling the owner “Oh, this will be such a great backdrop for pictures! My photographer will love this place!” Well, Ashley was 100000% correct! I loved it!!
Ashley couldn’t stop smiling the entire day. The happiness she was filled with knowing she was finally going to marry her best friend was so evident. She was overcome with emotion numerous times throughout the day, and would suddenly tear up and say, “I’m just so happy!” And I LOVED watching her be so happy! What an honor! She’s just the cutest!!
Pure joy was the common thread throughout the day, as the bridal party and guests were eager to watch these two love birds become husband and wife! Ashley’s bridesmaids were thrilled, and you could see that they had nothing but love and support for her. Funny story from the morning… I was capturing a few photos of Ashley as she was getting ready, and I asked her to giggle as she looked up at the ceiling. As she did, there on the ceiling ready to greet us was a wasp. It’s safe to say that it took us all by surprise, but we had a good laugh.
Ashley poured her heart into this wedding and made each detail stand out. At our first meeting, she emphasized how important the details were to her. Every intricate detail of the wedding was perfectly designed, executed, and absolutely stunning!! Stephen was in awe when he laid eyes on Ashley for the first time that day. His face was priceless. Sophie, their adorable golden retriever, was SO happy to see them during their first look and was such a great addition to the day! She looked precious in her floral crown!!
The love shared between Ashley and Stephen is evident by the overwhelming joy that danced on their faces as they got ready for the ceremony, then throughout the afternoon as they shared loving glances and intimate moments throughout the night. They shared a private last dance at the end of the night, which was the most romantic and sweetest way to close out this truly perfect day. Congratulations again guys! I loved being a part of your romantic Camelot Manor wedding!
