A couple months ago I captured Lauren and Graham’s gorgeous Belle Farm summer wedding in Alabama. Belle Farm is located in Sterrett Alabama right outside of Birmingham. It is a stunning venue with breathtaking scenery perfect for wedding day photos! It was my first time shooting at this venue. I had so much fun exploring the property and selecting the best locations to capture Lauren and Graham’s lovely summer wedding.
Lauren and Graham are a super sweet, loving couple. Lauren is a genuinely kind person and always up for anything. They are both naturally relaxed individuals who are incredible down to earth and easy going. I love that about them! Graham gifted Lauren Tecovas boots on the wedding day as well as a little basket of Teddy Grahams that morning for her to have since his name is Graham! It was such a cute and thoughtful sentiment!
She was an absolutely stunning bride. Her wedding dress had beautiful lace detail and her bridesmaids all wore sage green dresses. Their dresses complimented perfectly the lovely white flower bouquets.
Lauren did a first look with her bridesmaids, which is always so fun and special! Next she did a first look with her dad, which was the sweetest. I love seeing the faces of fathers as they see their “baby girl” all dressed up. It was such a tender heartfelt moment.
Lauren and Graham also opted to do a first look so we took the time to capture photos of them in a different area of the grounds at Belle Farm under beautiful trees and near the fountain! The ceremony took place outdoors on the grounds underneath a beautiful wooden arch with a cross centered in the background. It was beautiful!!
After being announced as husband and wife they rang the famous Bell of Belle Farms, which is a time honored tradition! Their getaway car was the same one they used for their engagement session! I loved that they incorporated it on their wedding day as well! The Belle Farm wedding reception was a blast! They had breakfast for dinner, which is my favorite!! That is the same thing my husband and I had for our wedding, so I guess you could say, I’m a little biased!! It was delicious!! The newlyweds spent the rest of their evening celebrating their marriage with their closest family and friends dancing the night away! It was a perfect wedding day at an amazing, dreamy venue. I am so excited for this wonderful couple! Congratulations Lauren and Graham! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!
